NEW VIEWINGS’ A PROJECT OF GALERIE BARBARA THUMM https://bthumm.de/ Galerie Barbara Thumm, Berlin Featuring today, Tuesday 5th of May 2020 Andreia Santana \ CURATED BY: Domenico de Chirico Andreia Santana - Forecasting Labor The premise of this investigation and works is the literary-archivist work Strange Artifacts - a Sourcebook on Ancient Men, by William Corliss - a first edition that compiled, for several decades, numerous archaeological objects not equivalent to the museological status of artefact. These objects or phenomena were found and described in the archeologists' field diaries during the expeditions, but most of them did not become the targets of the necessary attention regarding their description, explanation and origin. From Corliss' countless collections, descriptions and sparse illustrations, Andreia Santana created a series of sculptures that evoke the shapes of these objects in an attempt of a historical re-inscription that initiates an anachronistic dialogue in evitably implicit in contemporary artistic creation itself. MORE INFOS, AVAILABLE WORKS AND THE FULL CURATED PROGRAM OF DOMENICO DE CHIRICO SOON ON OUR WEBPAGE! STAY TUNED! New Viewings features not only the artists of the gallery. We also invite curators to host a series of up to four solo shows. They propose four artists to use images of our empty gallery space, like a coloring in book in order to create their shows. The project is driven by the gallery's mission to create a network as a positive and creative space for artistic utopias.
