Saskia Wendland & Tilman Wendland – Stereo 15.1.2016 – 27.2.2016

unnamed

Stereo is the first joint exhibition of the siblings Saskia and Tilman Wendland, curated by Yael Bartana.

The exhibition title Stereo, with its sign of two intersecting and overlapping circles, proposes a genuine investigation of the literal parameter specified by the gallery’s name “CIRCLE1”.

The exhibition “Freitag, der 13. | יום שישי ה-13” presents a number of international artists in the context of a cultural dialogue. The works of the exhibiting artists illuminate contradictory perspectives on an object or matter, as is exemplified in the title and the opening date of the show, where the number 13 can be interpreted either as an unlucky number or as a lucky number, depending on the cultural background and historical context. The exhibition deals with certain cultural, political as well as artistic, formal phenomena, which revolve around contradictions, paradoxes and contrasting pairs.
