'Klammern aus denen Blätter Spriessen', Group Show at Scherben, Berlin

The exhibition Klammern aus denen Blätter Spriessen is a collaboration between the LA-based gallery Hunter Shaw Fine Art, and Berlin based independent space Scherben. The first iteration opens at Scherben on April 1, 2022 and runs until May 2, 2022. The accompanying  program includes performances and lectures by the participating artists. In June 2022, the second iteration of Klammern aus denen Blätter  Spriessen opens at Hunter Shaw Fine Art in Los Angeles. 

Klammern aus denen Blätter Spriessen assembles a group of artists, who have independently sought out to investigate different strains and  subcultures of escapism, found in DIY maker movements, mysticism, gaming culture, biotechnology, virtual reality and the extension of bodily  formations through social and scientific techniques. Showing in this ensemble for the first time, Colleen Hargaden, Filip Kostic, Yein Lee,  Andrew Rutherdale and Jonas Schoeneberg venture out of their studios in Berlin, Los Angeles, Montreal and Vienna to open up their practi ces to mutual encounters, allowing their perspectives and interests to intersect, converge and enter into conversation with another. Together  they offer conceptual variables to understand situations excluded from normative notions of the real. Like the seemingly irreal scenario of  “brackets, from which leaves sprout” (Klammern aus denen Blätter Spriessen), alternate patterns and cognitive abilities emerge from which to  think the escape button culturally assigned to virtual reality anew. If one of these pathways was projected in spacetime, it would read: “Once  you’ve made a gateway of brackets, slipping into the embrace between them, you unlock the control console and peer into its memory slot.  There. Expect a beautiful but unreal setting.”
