Raw and reworked photography by Bernhard Handick:

“In photography, it excites me to understand the body as a sculptor, as a composer to set music to the picture and as a storyteller to draw you into the spell. It is about the exploration of limits. And above all, it is my intention to work in close collaboration with the model and with the highest respect of individual boundaries in the form of an image.

“In der Fotografie reizt es mich, den Körper wie ein Bildhauer zu begreifen, wie ein Komponist das Bild zu vertonen und dich wie ein Geschichtenerzähler in den Bann zu ziehen. Es geht um das Ausloten von Grenzen. Und vor allen Dingen geht es mir darum, in engster Zusammenarbeit mit dem Model und mit dem höchsten Respekt die individuellen Grenzen in die Form eines Bildes zu übertragen.”

Becoming Wilderness is a photography project by Scandinavian duo Inka Lindergård and Niclas Holmström (a.k.a Inka & Niclas).

“Integral to their practice is the wish to consider what it is in a sunset over an ocean or the view of a mountain range that is so emotionally spellbinding and continues to fill us with awe? What is it that drives us to go out there and collect these images over and over again? And what mystical auras create the sense of awe and wonder that colours our understanding of nature? Inka & Niclas´s practice evolves around an exploration of the different components that constitutes the powerful psychological effects of different natural phenomena and landscapes.

Fascinating approach to drawing by Marc van Elburg.

“I approach free drawing as an uncompromising battle against routine. In this, I picture routine as a rotating fluid that automatically settles to a shape of minimal deformation. Such a fluid is like a machine that follows a strict Newtonian law”

Sweat on Retina is a project by Britta Thie.

“I often think about the emotional connection you have with an interface, you wanna touch it or grab it or be more close to it, develop this physical relationship”.

Exhibition & Art Performance: KLUB7 & Le Bocal [4.10.13/09.10.13]

I’ve been a fan of the work KLUB7 does since I moved to Berlin (interviewed for Art Sponge back in April ’12) and am glad to announce some of their upcoming events:

In Spring 2013, LE BOCAL hosted KLUB7 art collective in Lyon. Strong links were forged between both crews and the idea of carrying the work elaborated together naturally popped up. In order to experiment together and push further the graphic exchanges, both collectives came up with the idea of setting a second meeting, on KLUB7’s ground in Berlin.
