Andrea Éva Győri's artistic practice revolves around the connection between the body and the psyche as a reflection of personal and social processes. Themes include sexuality and satisfaction as forms of self-care, and partnerships and the power relations that they generate. The exhibited works–mostly videos and drawings–are the result of remarkably trustful collaborations with their protagonists. The individual interpersonal and humorous encounters form...

“The Illusion of unity or oneness is created in man first, by the sensation of one physical body, by his name, which in normal cases always remains the same, and third, by a number of mechanical habits which are implanted in him by education or acquired by imitation. Having always the same physical sensations, hearing always the same name and noticing in himself the same habits and inclinations he had before, he believes himself to be always the same.” –P...

In this exhibition, we will show Barbara Probst's recent series of diptychs entitled 12 Moments, where the artist started each of these with a single actual dream image or memory of an experience, and then proceeded to find a second picture to accompany it. Instead of relying on different accounts positioning camera in opposite views, she has reconfigured her generative eyewitness analogy, so that the camera now serves as a highly personal and emotional...

The Statisticon Neon (2017) pays homage to Joseph Beuys monumental work Das Kapital Raum 1970-1977 originally shown in the German Pavillon in Venice in 1980 and today on loan to Berlin’s Neue Nationalgalerie as part of Erich Marx’s Beuys-Block.

Color like money and language has become deregulated. Color is no longer tethered to form and meaning and becomes a vehicle through which emancipated feelings, political intrigues and resistance to institutional normalization processes can become realized. Warren Neidich uses color to recoup the political conditions of creating meaning – summarized in the three part neon-painting Red, White, and Blue (2007).
In the Afterimage Paintings, (2016) red neon...

Emeli Theander, Hustlers, 2017, oil on canvas, 160 x 150 cm / Courtesy of Edmond Gallery and the artist
Edmond Gallery is pleased to present the solo exhibition of Emeli Theander, Swedish artist living and working in Berlin since 2003.
The seduction of Emeli Theander’s work lies in the peculiar way she combines the poetry of dreams and the marvel of children’s tales. It is figurative, in the sense that it is a setting for mysterious totemic figures at the cusp of fantasy and myth. In a cold, aquatic light, creatures-half-human, half-animal- from the Norse...
