On the occasion of the upcoming Berlin Gallery Weekend, C1 invites you all to learn about the curating process behind its current exhibition Sing While You’re Burning. Curator and artist Ofir Dor will guide us through the curatorial concept of his group exhibition presenting 12 Israeli painters. During the tour, refreshments will be served.
The exhibition features 12 painters from Israel whose work is personal, emotional and somewhat restless. They are engaged in painting that tells a story, paintings that arehumanistic in their philosophizing, and they are direct, sincere and simple. Continue reading →
This 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.
Interference 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.
We are happy to invite you to the next Music in the Circle concert. The program will include works by Johann Sebastian Bach, Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach, Johann Gottlieb Goldberg and more, all played on period instruments.

During the guided tour individual works will be explained in more detail, but above all the curators and artists will tell about the unfamiliar challenges and the risk with which they have been confronted by the exhibition concept.
Saturday, 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.

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 →
