ALEX HEILBRON – SCENT DESCRIPTION for a young woman

Nova (time passes)… Supernova… Supranova… Personal, inter, intrapersonal with a sender, receiver, and a feedback loop. A…

Groupshow Weird Rain @ Garden, LA

Meanwhile in Vienna – Martin Chramosta

The reliefs of Martin Chramosta are made of plaster or wax. They wear french titles. They are closed, limited, autonomous works. They are gestural compositions of small and medium format. Drawing and sculpture cross in the rigidity of their moving features, in the volume of…

Aberglauben und Unglauben! Knechtschaft und Despotism! Unvernünftige Klugheit, unkluge Vernunft! Geistlose Empfindung,…

Laura Gozlan – physical self

For her first personal exhibition at Galerie Escougnou-Cetraro, entitled physical self, Laura Gozlan worked on the texture of images as if it was skin epidermis, conjured literally or more elusively by its texture, its colour, its processing, its membranes.

Shaun Motsi – Notiz von Vivien Trommer

Wo gehören wir hin? Ein edler Flügel wird in seine Einzelteile zerlegt. Entblößt geben sich die Stahlsaiten und die rohe Holzkonstruktion den Blicken frei. Im Blaumann liegt ein Automechaniker unter dem aufgebockten Korpus und schraubt am Resonanzboden. Neben ihm steht seine Werkzeugkiste, hinter ihm befindet…

REVIEWISH #03 – By Karim Crippa
