DNA Berlin

DNA Berlin DNA, founded in 2001, is dedicated to promoting contemporary art. It focuses primarily on Berlin based international artists.

The program accomodates a wide range of artistic media (painting, sculpture, video, installation and drawing), presented via innovative, interactive, interdisciplinary and multimedia projects. DNA has an international character, collaborating regularly with numerous galleries and institutions outside Germany. The DNA’s objective is to provide a stage for contemporary art and stimulate the debate that surrounds it. It aims to present and foster new horizons in art, which in turn require experimental forms of exhibiting,conveying and communicating. Prior to running a commercial gallery, the managing director Johann Nowak has been working as an independent curator, realizing numerous international projects, such as The Festival of Vision, Berlin – Hongkong in collaboration with Haus der Kulturen der Welt Berlin (2000).

Summer Exhibition at DNA:
Blurred Eagerness

This summer exhibition explores the themes and techniques of clarity and soft-focus. “Blurred Eagerness” features textual works by Patricio Vogel (Chile), human figures in sculptures by Volker März (Germany) and Francesca Martí (Spain) hazy and composite portraits by Kyungwoo Chun (Korea), Fabio Camerotta (Argentina), Nezaket Ekici (Turkey) and Alina-Ada Lungu (Romania), colour-fields and indistinct forms in paintings and abstract prints by Dafni Atha (Greece), Ding Musa (Brasil) and Ian Woo (Singapore).

Patricio Vogel creates works that seek formal and symbolic space, emphasizing its visual, poetic and political possibilities. Provoking reflection from these spaces representing the diverse possibilities of contemporary experience. Visually, Patricio Vogel’s work is based on recuperation, classification and reconstruction within artistic parameters. The work is not, however, focused on the function of recuperating the official history contained in the archive, but in accumulating the history of the object under study in itself, as social object. It’s a search to exalt sensible universes above the official ones, allowing Patricio Vogel to reconstruct or fictionalize history in pieces of a marked poetic approach.

Francesca Martí comes from Mallorca and appeared in the Spanish art scene at the beginning of the 90s. She creates her works interdisciplinary with media such as painting, sculpture, photography, video, performance, multimedia, music.
Her art deals with the problems of our society today. She loves to create works of art that do not give answers and force viewers to get involved in order to finish the artwork in their own minds.
The rustic 'Dreamer - Alpha Virgins' figure, shows Francesca Martí’s hand and fingerprints. Alone or in a group, it is an expressive figure, lost in its thoughts. The relaxed and reflective posture of the figure visualizes Francesca’s intention to transform dreams into reality and to arouse spirituality.

Dafni Atha is an up and coming artist from Greece, currently working and residing in London. Her works are sensual and alluring, leaving the observer strayed in the seduction of blurred colours and shapes of her works.

Christine Jackob-Marks is inspired by Nature to create often inner, spiritual landscapes; images, in which something actually transpires. With varying degrees of precision, her interpretations of nature are possessed of something profoundly theatrical. She created a deep, imaginary space in her work, depicting a blurry landscape, in which a plane disappered.

Kyungwoo Chuns peaceful portraits are not only fascinating representations of individuals, but also refer to universal experiences: they speak of presence, absence and the transitive state of being. Time blurrs the subject through the long exposure of the photograph, but also internalises their existence. Chun’s works ask questions about the presentational possibilites of the media of video and photography and provoke an interplay between reproduction and imagination, between what is shown and what has disappeared.

Volker März does not try to hide the highly valid political meanings of his beautifully cynical works. His criticism towards our current society is expressed by blurring evolution, creating sculptures and painting of modern looking subjects, depicted with chimpanzee heads. Volker provokes the observer to strongly question the actions and lifestyles of people in our society, by pointing out that we still act like very great ancestors.

Alina-Ada’s art is completely internally driven, depicting her feelings and emotions of the moment and a complex way of expressing herself. Her consciousness becomes blurred by her own personality when she paints. In her works figures become transparent, intersect with each other and separate. This style creates an obscure portrayal of Alina-Ada’s feelings.

Ian Woo is an artist working in the language of abstraction. Influenced by forms of modernism, perceptual abstraction and the sound structures of music improvisation, his work is characterised by a sense of gravitational and representational change. He often uses the term ‘picture making’ when describing his position and approach, maintaining the discipline and evolvement of painting as a vehicle for pictorial reflectivity.
Nezaket Ekici's videos, installations and performances are often processual in character. They involve the viewer both intellectually and emotionally, by means of their themes as well as their form. Complex, often controverse contents enter into a suspenseful interplay with their aestheticizing presentation. In this, the field of tension between her Turkish origin and education on the one hand, and her living environment in Germany on the other play a central role. Cultural and individual borders are of equal interest to her as the possibility of transgression and connection. Although her own body is usually at the center of her work, it is still possible for the viewer to experience its topicality for him- or herself. The viewer's associations and experiences become an integrative part of the work of art.
Ding Musa humanizes his art work and make it closer to a social discussion. He is interested in people and their relationships. The space he constructs on Deep Field 8 is a place of human relations, despite the fact that is is depicted in complete isolation.
The artworks shown at the ‚Blurred Eagerness’ exhibition have strong affects on their observer through the important topics, the artists decided to address.

"To create a world of its own with its own beings" desires Anke Röhrscheid, graduate of the Städelsches Art Institute, Frankfurt, who is presented for the first time at DNA Gallery in a comprehensive manner. "As in the world of the Surrealists, the borders between human, animal and plant are abolished”, writes Ingrid Pfeiffer, Curator of the Schirn Kunsthalle, Frankfurt.

Evidence
Curated by Seoyoung Kim


The exhibition Evidence is to understand those images in their own pictorial dignity, which can be described by a reflection from Paul Valéry on the specific abilities of images. He writes, “An image is more than an image and sometimes shows more than the object of which it is an image.” But, most of all, this exhibition aims to bring a range of artistic approaches and rethinking about the stories that have been overshadowed by social histories. These approaches are drawn from works of Jeamin Cha, Mariam Ghani, Clemens Krauss, Dinh Q. Lê, Mariana Vassileva and Jui-Chung Yao.

Solid and Soft
Shahar Marcus & Nezaket Ekici

The exhibition Solid & Soft is based on the on-going project "In Relation" of Shahar Marcus and Nezaket Ekici since 2012.

Solid & Soft deals with the confrontation of stability and mutation using stones, sand, ashes and water as irreducible elements to revise the concepts of space and time. The performances enlighten the relation between the two artists who try to find a way of understanding each other; each of them having different cultural backgrounds (Turkish, German and Israeli). Whether dressed in dusty black or dirty white, the artists go through exhausting rituals. The minimalistic aesthetics of the setting emphasize the never-ending processes, which produces a metaphor for eternally discovering the same person. In exposing them to the burning sun of the desert or the harshness of mineral particles, the artists want to point out that the repetitive usage of these universal elements, involved in actions, are the key factors for building up everything: life and relationships.
