Tim Eitel - Nebel und Sonne @ Galerie EIGEN + ART Berlin

The way our eyes adjust to the light (or the lack of it) is an obvious inspiration for Tim Eitel's paitings. The images are slowly defined as if our eyes had to become accustomed to the dark, in order to glimpse the nuances, the depth, and then see the contours come to the surface. One amazing fact also appears in your thoughs while looking at those paintings: you start to realise how powerful they are in this seemingly efortless and natural play with "the fog and the sun".

Noé Sendas - To Make Ends Meet @ Invaliden1

Ih his exhibition "To Make Ends Meet", Noé Sendas presents a selection of his most recent photo collage series, namely “Peeps” and “Crystal Girls”. In order to create a unified display, the artist arranged a constellation of his works in relation to an extensive, ultimately alluded, mantelshelf. Aside from the main installation, the new and wonderful art book "Geometries" is on view.

Libros Mutantes @ La Casa Encendida (Madrid)

On the occasion of international book day, the Madridian art book fair Libros Mutantes showcased some of the most current and interesting examples of both local and international independent publishing throughout the weekend (25. - 27.04).

We had a lovely time flipping through books and fanzines, attending conferences and workshops and even sipping some vermouth al fresco. (M.S.)

Lucy Dyson - Neue Welten @ Das Gift

Lucy Dyson's recent paper collage works were on display last weekend in Das Gift, including some original collages commissioned as album artwork covers. Lucy is also an awarded music video director, who directed videos for artists such as Gemma Ray, The Jon Spencer Blues Explosion and Ray LaMontagne. "Neue Welten" was a perfect show for a bar/art space that marries art and music, and the funniest/ happiest show seen last week. Clap along if you feel...

Viktoria Binschtok - eclipse99 @ KLEMM'S

"eclipse99" is made up of clusters of photographic images built on visual and formal associations. In an ultimate response to recursive image production and use, Binschtok has turned the internet search engine in on her own artwork, opening up a conversation between herself and the computer. The show had a fresh feel and a cool appeal; there was nothing unlikeable about it. KLEMM'S (and the neighbor gallery Soy Capitan) semed like the best place to be that evening; with good art especially, but even without it, I can imagine it as a place solely intended for beer drinking and people watching.

Evan Gruzis - Atavistic Zen @ DUVE Berlin

In "Atavistic Zen", Evan Gruzis considers the frame as subject within the transformation of his own process. Inspired by Dōgen Zenji, the Japanese Zen Buddhist teacher, Gruzis creates a unique body of work that explores the visualization of tension found in chaos and the more calculable wave form. One of the favorite April shows; bookmark it as a Gallery Weekend must-see.

Timo Klöppel - Durch das berühren zerfällt es @ KWADRAT

A literally bright and shiny show; also sweet and funny in a way. In case you do not know what to do with your old tacky Christmas decorations and childhood photos you are ashamed of, borrow some inspiration from Timo Klöppel.
