Johannes Albers in 'Mauer', Berlin

September 23, 2013 by Kay

Mauer at Michael Fuchs Gallerie

Johannes Albers, Douglas Gordon

18th September – 26th October 2013

Those who want to know what holds the world together internally are more likely to think of a particle accelerator than a poet. Tiny little pieces are shot at each other at almost the speed of light in order to reveal their inner components. In the Michael Fuchs Galerie the worlds of Johannes Albers and Douglas Gordon collide with an uncertain outcome.

The exhibition is entitled ‘Mauer’ (Wall); a term that will forever be linked to Berlin. Berlin’s most famous construction and the euphoria over its fall belong to the past. There are new walls. The wall is both a limitation and a projection surface for our curiosity. A consistent theme in Alber’s work is both change and variability of the world. The boundary between an attempt and an action is reflected in the exhibition in a glass suitcase. A new beginning, fragile, transparent, but also as dangerous as an item of luggage left by an assailant. Douglas Gordon will shoot at 365 light bulbs in order research them in the manner of a particle physicist.
