Larry Abramson’s exhibition at Circle 1 (opening on December 6) is titled “Das kleine Blumenbuch,” after a book of botanical illustrations published by Insel Verlag, Leipzig, in 1933, with woodcuts of German wild flowers by Fritz Kredel, based upon drawings by Rudolf Koch. In the summer of 2014, following the end of the recent war with Gaza, Abramson collected the daily issues of the pro-government tabloid “Israel Today,” and in his studio defaced them with layers of oil paint. The colors he used for this act were based upon his mental memory of the “utopian” sky of his childhood in Jerusalem.
Karen Russo is an Israeli-born artist living and working in London. In her exhibition at Circle1 gallery in Berlin (opening on September 19) she will show her video work “Externsteine” and a new series of charcoal drawings.
In our next exhibition which opens on September 19th we will show the video work “Rehearsing the Spectacle of Spectres” by Nir Evron and Omer Krieger. This is the first joint work of the artists, which combines cinematic and performative sensibilities, proposing political and aesthetic questions situated in a public space and the human body.
