Ictus* – A Performance Evening by Michel Platnic and Dan Allon | 24.02.17 at 19:00

Screenshot 2017-02-08 12.10.22This one time performance evening featuring Israeli artists and Berlin residents Michel Platnic and Dan Allon, deals with world order of power, war and economic struggle. Having both stems in Israeli provenience, the artists know how violence, war and money have the means of becoming integrated within a routine, and therefore it is only natural they would feel intrigued, attracted and critical of its aesthetics. Both artists will simultaneously perform the two different works to provide a rounded glimpse to a sad, cruel and yet beautiful world.

Current Exhibition – Interference | 20.1.17 – 25.3.17

real-madeleineInterference is an exhibition of CIRCLE1 Gallery in collaboration with the Petach Tikva Museum of Art in Israel, presenting the artists Vadim Zakharov, Guy Goldstein and Ariel Reichman, curated by Drorit Gur Arie.

Interference is a type of obstacle, an interruption of the usual order of things, a suspension and disruption of continuity. The featured works refer to various aspects of this notion: interruption of logic and orderly action, whether by narrative shifts, temporal deviations, or sound intervals.

Thursday, January 5, 2017, 6:30 pm – 
Curator’s Tour with Hannah Beck-Mannagetta and Ulrich Vogl as well as individual artists of the exhibition:

chryssa-lying-01Saturday, January 14, 2017, 6:30 pm –
Finissage with performance by Chryssa Tsampazi with Clara and Luise Andrees:

In her performance, “I Have Never Been This Honest”, Chryssa Tsampazi will place herself in the position of each individual artist, as well as the viewer’s point of view on the exhibition.

In doing so, she will also refer to the titles of the individual works. The titles do have a special significance within the exhibition, since they have not only made the artists face the challenge of finding a title for an art work that is not yet meant to be one, but also to find a title that refers to the story behind the object and the reason why the work has never been shown.

Current Exhibition – Never Shown on Purpose | 4.11.16 – 14.1.17

Within the artistic process works emerge that seem not to fit into the cosmos of an artist‘s practice. In the eyes of the maker, they have not yet been defined as an art work, or were determined as a study. In order to take a view behind the curtain, artists have been invited to propose a work they have never shown before for various reasons. Some of the works were never accepted as finished because they failed, looked overdrawn or simply appeared not good enough. Others, however, seemed too personal or intimate to show. What do unaccomplished and withheld works tell about the personality of the artist, the mechanisms of self versus external judgements, and the definition of artworks in general? Continue reading

Mother, I have reached the land of my dreams – CIRCLE1’s Exhibition at the ID Festival Berlin | 21-23.10.16

sandclock-foto-maya-elran3Going back centuries and millennia, the travel routes of migrants tell the story of a humanity ravaged by wars, famine, prosecution and crises. Traversing lands, seas and continents, the pairs of eyes that witnessed and the legs that treaded the land – of those persistent in their search for a better future, if not sheer survival – are the bearers of life experiences that remain largely untold and forgotten, even if the collective fates of migrant populations had merged into the great currents of history, shaping cultures, civilizations, peoples and ethnicities everywhere.
