Welcome to have a digital look on the exhibition Enlargements with the Swedish artist Dawid.
Between 2005 and 2008, the Swedish photographer/artist DAWID (Björn Dawidsson) created a series of photo-based paintings (acrylic on canvas), in which he developed his own technique using pale colours, which he partially blurred.
The focus of his painting is on the canvas surface – as well as on the surfaces of the silver gelatine prints of his analogue black and white photographs. Tinted, graininess, shiny and matt surfaces influence the experience of the subtle motifs. The Dorothée Nilsson Gallery is pleased to present these paintings together with the photographic originals for the first time in Berlin.

In order to give our artists the attention they deserve even during the current difficult situation, we have decided to show one work every day on our Instagram channel. We hope to welcome you back to the gallery soon – until then we would be happy if you would follow us on Instagram.

Until then we offer you to visit the gallery by appointment. Feel free to write us an e-mail to email@example.com.
We hope you stay healthy or get well soon!

BODIES AND VALUS | OPENING FEBRUARY 14, 7 pm
Exhibition: February 15 – April 13 2020
The Kunsthalle Rostock is showing a solo exhibition of Yvon Chabrowski’s award-winning video sculptures “Bodies and Values”. She recently won the 7th International Marianne Brandt Prize.
BODIES AND VALUES consists of four video sculptures LEVEL, SWAYING, SCREEN and HORIZONTAL. Within these Chabrowski deals with the relationship between the body and the glass surface, the screens and monitors that surround us everywhere. The monitor surfaces, which we otherwise do not perceive, become the pictorial space of performances presented life-size on free-hanging monitors.
On view from 26 Jan – 08 Feb 2020

Susa Templins installation Landscaping can be seen at Kunsthalle Mannheim until March 15, 2020. The artist created a diorama out of photographic collages. Landscaping is an imagineted dream forest that seems to grow at the museum, a counter image to urbanity . Templins work with the medium of photography does not focus on documenting reality, it’s an expression of her own concepts, concerns and fictions.

Martina Hoogland Ivanow documents the traces of touches and past tactile stimuli. For her series Early Reading, the artist worked with the method of thermography, a technique that allows the visualization of experiences, the human eye can’t capture. Hoogland Ivanow describes this as heat shadows. Pictures of childhood moments convey the feeling of a closeness that promises intimacy and protection. Images of demonstrations, the artist captured with a thermal camera, describe steps out of a confort zone. The act of activism appears in a tension of trust and fear. Not only is the camera of artistic importance, it’s also an instrument of monitoring.
Hoogland Ivanows video work Interbeing completes the exhibition at the Dorothée Nilsson Gallery. The subject of the black sun, the artist uses in the movie, draws parallels to the art of Minor White, a pioneer of the artistic work with thermographic techniques.
Opening: January 10, 6pm
Exhibition: January 11 – February 29, 2020
Congratulations to Yvon Chabrowski who is the winner in the category Experiment of the 7th Marianne Brandt Award! https://marianne-brandt-wettbewerb.de/en/newsdetail/winners-7th-international-marianne-brandt-award.html
Statement of the jury: In the video works by Yvon Chabrowski, performers in indeterminate spaces move behind glass panes, confronting the viewer as life-size figures, blurring all the usual categories of inside and outside in a complex, contemporary allegory of being in the glass. In doing so, she unfolds a metaphor of glass that appeals to this material as a medium of transparency, distance and control.
