Berlin’s Neurotitan Gallery turned into a mystical world that takes one on a spiritual journey. Enter the realms of this magical land with us.
The exhibition, which was kicked off by a launch of a neo-pagan “wheel of the year” calendar, was curated by Romanian artist Viviana Druga (read our interview with Viviana here). Eight artists, who also showed their work at the exhibition, were photographed to represent a specific festival or “sabbath”, their own personalities matching with the energy of the chosen season. The exhibition is then somewhat of an extension of that, letting the viewers take a deeper glance into the artists’ souls through their very own artistic practice. One can find Shaltmira’s large-scale B&W canvases, Rubbish Fairy’s flamboyant room or Frau Feeger’s colorful, dazzling installation, or get a taste of urban cuisine thanks to Kasia Justka’s performance “Singing Kitchen”.
On the opening night, the two rooms was pulsing with magical energy, the heavy smell of incense and loud chatter of the uncountable visitors. The surreal land of dreamy shrines, projections and installations was accompanied by a vast range of live performances that only enhanced the energy and extraordinary vibe. Live tribal music, ancient rituals, and theatre-like pieces, often starting unannounced, almost made one feel overwhelmed with all the stimuli, and created the illusion that all featured artworks were part of a bigger perspective.
If you feel like you need to take a break from your day-to-day life to discover something new and unheard, make sure not to miss the exhibition’s finissage, which is happening this Saturday, January 28th, and will be a little family reunion. We can guarantee a very moving experience.
