2001 rief der Künstler Semjon H.N. Semjon den Projektraum KioskShop berlin (KSb) ins Leben. Ursprünglich als Langzeit-Installation in Berlin-Mitte begonnen, entstand ein zehn Jahre währendes Interventionsprojekt, das vielen aufstrebenden Künstlern ein Ausstellungs- und Diskussionsforum bot. An den ehemaligen Standort des KioskShops hielt im September 2011 die Galerie Semjon Contemporary s|c Einzug, die ebenfalls von H.N. Semjon gegründet wurde. In ihrem Programm knüpft die Galerie an zahlreiche Kontakte und Projekte des KioskShops an und vertritt Künstler, mit denen H.N. Semjon als ehemaliger Kollege in langjährigen produktiven Beziehungen steht.

Li Silberberg has worked on this project since 1998 (22 years, about 40.000 hrs). Since she began in 1998 the artist everyday takes her time to prepare the main work by writing a kind of diary reflecting everyday and general (life) issues accompanied by little sketches (meanwhile 40 books). She then focuses on her "Library", the single books just with her hands and also ink. She is grating it onto/into each single page. With closed eyes the hourlong everyday procedure she understands as a meditation. One could understand this artistic practice as a process to translate her life into these meanwhile 181 pieces counting library. Concrete poetry. Abstract poetry. Life poetry. Art.

A sudden new era in our time evolves, deminishing social and cultural life. That's why the digital (image) communication becomes even more important.
The art world is one of many those life-fabrics reinsuring us as human beings with culture, history, empathy and love. All of a sudden we are thrown back due to Corona to ourselves, being forced to step out of that what we took for granted. March 2020, Semjon H. N. Semjon

The art world is one of many those life-fabrics reinsuring us as human beings with culture, history, empathy and love. All of a sudden we are thrown back to ourselves, being forced to step out of that what we took for granted. Thus I will use the time to reflect on what my gallery artists have achieved in their artistic life. It's something, which is not communicated every day. The current, the new is expected. The artist's DNA is also calling for this. However, a social and cultural fabric consists of both, the former achievements and the current artistic practice. March 2020, Semjon H. N. Semjon

The corona crisis slows down everything. Of course, also the art world.
Semjon Contemporary won't be open for the public for an undefined temporary time.

To keep staying part of the art community and market, we will install new exhibitions, even if there won't be guests.

It's our dedication to our artists, who have worked hard to make new shows possible. It's also a tribute to our gallery friends and to the art world, as well as to our neighborhood to show that life is keep on going.

Art has the power to enrich our lifes!

The virtual world fortunately allows us to be part of this community.

I recommend you to take a virtual walk through some of our exhibitions from the last 2 years (by #Artland). You will be surprised about the amazing shows we have realized and what wonderful artists we have we are committed to.

Stay tuned (also on @instagram, @Artsy, @Artland and www.semjoncontemporary.com) and honor us with a like or a klick to more knowledge and beautiness.

Thank you, and stay strong and healthy!
Best regards, Semjon H. N. Semjon

P.S.:
We have just installed the 'Bibliothek/Library' from Li Silberberg at our Straßen-Salon (image of our invitation card). This exceptional installation is part of the exhibition: 'Geschnitten und Gerieben / Cut and Grated' with works by #renatehampke #susannepomrehn #ursulasax #stefanthiel and #lisilberberg, which was sheduled to open on Friday March 27. The exhibition will run until April 25.
Currently #collAGE is partly to be seen from the street (as well as #library.

If you are in the neighborhood for fresh air and a walk and to flee the monotony of your appartment, stop by for an amazing view!

Our Story

The gallery Semjon Contemporary s|c, founded by Semjon H. N. Semjon in 2011 in Berlin, represents German and international artists from different genres, as i.e. painting, sculpture, installation, drawing, photography and video. The gallery’s contemporary program is presented in two separate exhibition spaces: the main showroom as well as the so-called Straßen-Salon for solo exhibitions. They are supplemented by the other Salon cabinets for simultaneous display of works by various artists, the gallery’s resident artists as well as guest artists.

Besides the main focus of representing the gallery’s artists, Semjon Contemporary is also engaged in projects as i.e. the drawing exhibition series Lieber Künstler, zeichne mir!/Dear artist, draw for me!, which addressed the issue of abstraction and figuration with artworks by more than 120 artists (including the majority of the gallery artists), acompanied by two substantial catalogs. Another important project realized by Semjon Contemporary was a substantial retrospective exhibition in 2015 in all gallery rooms presenting works by Ursula Sax. Planned for autumn 2017 the retrospective exhibition, showing photographies and photograms by Gerda Schütte, is already on display. Both retrospective exhibitions were supplemented by a differentiated catalog and a comprehensive photo book (the latter published by Kehrer Verlag).

Furthermore, the gallerist is also interested in expanding the radius of the gallery’s activities and organizing events at other locations, i.e. curating solo or group exhibitions with the gallery’s artists or guest artists. In order to promote the artists’ visibility on the art market, Semjon Contemporary has kept appearing on international art fairs like Preview Berlin 2011 and 2012, Positions Berlin 2015, Art Bodensee from 2013-17, Solo Project (Basel) 2015, Art Rotterdam2016 and Volta NY 2017.

Occasionally, the gallery welcomes the opportunity to undertake an excursion into yet another genre, as with the past Raku exhibition by Cornelia Nagel in November/December 2016, which concentrated on the ceramics by the raku master. Semjon H. N. Semjon, born in 1962, has studied Art History and Classical Archeology as well as Fine Arts with Georg Baselitz. Since 2011 his artistic practice has gradually turned into a long-term artistic sabbatical, which is still continuing.
