Miettinen Collection I Salon Dahlmann

Miettinen Collection I Salon Dahlmann The Salon Dahlmann is named after Hildegard Dahlmann, the last owner of the house. The building was acquired by the Miettinen family in 2010.
(22)

With the Salon Dahlmann, Timo Miettinen has established a link to Berlin’s salon culture tradition, which emerged not far from the Marburger 3, in the area of the Kurfürstendamm in West Berlin. The Salon presents an eclectic program including a range of different formats: exhibitions, concerts, performances, workshops and encounters of creative people and professionals in many fields. The institution is not just a space for cultural meetings and events: The entire house is devoted to the Arts. Annexed to the Salon is a private apartment – die Ferienwohnung – beautifully furnished, combining German and Finnish design. It hosts a selection of artworks from the Miettinen collection with changing arrangements in coordination with the temporary exhibitions in the Salon. For the entrance of the building, the Berlin based artist Björn Dahlem has created a permanent light installation entitled “Lokale Gruppe”. The courtyard of the house has recently been re-designed to accommodate a sculpture by Hans Arp, kindly provided by the Foundation Arp. Visitors are invited to join guided tours on Saturdays to visit the Salon, the private apartment and the yard.

Markus Lüpertz is one of the best-known German contemporary artists and a representative of neo-expressionism. Lüpertz describes Francis Picabia's work, also featured in the exhibition as the forerunner of his own style. With his unique mix of figuration and abstraction, Lüpertz simplifies form in his works while emphasizing details such as heads and faces.

His bronze sculpture ‘St. Sebastian,’ (1987) depicts a representation of St. Sebastian - the Roman officer in the service of the Emperor Diocletian, who was tied to a tree for punishment and severely wounded and finally killed by Numidian archers because of his commitment to Christianity - a combination of suffering and beauty prevailed, starting from the young Sebastian at Perugino. Lüpertz deviates from the traditional Sebastian type; instead concentrating on the existential experience of the saint: his sacrifice. ”

“The neoexistentialism of Markus Lüpertz (“Heiliger Sebastian”, 1987) leads back to figurative painting and back to the nude, a movement that also stands for the oeuvre of Rainer Fetting (“Cop relaxing, Sebastian”, 2004). Jürgen Klaukes photography from the 1970s reminds us that the dressed body may be considerably more transgressive than the naked one. The mask not only clothes the face, it fetishizes the body.”

- Boris Pofalla (passage from the exhibition text) @ Miettinen Collection I Salon Dahlmann

Congratulations to Amoako Boafo (@amoakoboafo) who was recently enlisted by Dior’s Kim Jones (@MrKimJones) to collaborate on their Men’s Summer 2021 collection.⁣

The stunning collection is especially notable for the way it thoughtfully translates Boafo’s tactile finger-painting technique onto sweatshirts and roll-necks. Brightly-coloured hats and neon also recall the bold backgrounds of the artists paintings. ⁣

“His work just spoke to me; I was immediately drawn to it. The intensity of his portraits, the power of movement and the choice of colors in them - everything touches me in his work and the way he sees things," Kim Jones said in a statement about Boafo. "In designing this collection, I wanted to share that passion and celebrate the power of his work, to help it become even better known."⁣

Boafo explains from his studio in the film accompanying the collection his own connection to fashion, “fashion inspires my work and so I tend to look at characters that have that sense of style.” - Amoako Boafo⁣

Athena Papadopoulos’ (@athena_papa_doubled) “A Cuckoo Sidepain that gets Worse Knot better” (2018),⁣ mixed media sculpture featured in Touch Me: Nudes from the Miettinen Collection. ⁣⁣
⁣⁣
“How tricky and ambivalent the representation of naked bodies can be! The notion of the ‘naked truth’ is truly duplicitous. Nudity obscures and obliterates, discloses, attracts and rejects. The nude is the oldest artistic genre and the most enigmatic at that. To this very day it awkwardly bridges high art and jerk-off material. What exactly is the difference between David Hockney’s photograph of “peter showering” and Bel Ami? Or that of a Tom of Finland drawing and gay pornography? The strange thing is that a work can be both at the same time: a source of erotic stimulation and a work of art. Precisely in its ambivalence lies the strength of the nude. A nude is always physical, as are bodies, ever unpredictable. No one is a master of their own biology, one’s reaction to the nudity of others is not consciously controllable. Entire scientific disciplines thrive on that assumption, taking us back once again to the supposed innocence of the eyes and their gaze (an innocence that does not exist).”⁣⁣

“What a summer. As we begin witness months in which our bodies may become more revealing again; faces, on the other hand, have to be covered up due to the corona pandemic. Only the body and the eyes remain recognizable. In our digital present, saturated with images, the eyes prove to be the best trained muscles in the human body. Nevertheless, a hygienic presumption of innocence persists. The hands need constant washing, yet what about the iris? Nobody is cleaning it, despite everyone's knowledge that the eyes are the most promiscuous part of our body. In this sense there couldn’t be a better moment for an exhibition of nudes than now. Touching remains complicated; looking, however, is pretty safe. Though the contemporary may predominate in “Touch Me”, the Miettinen collection offers nudes from several epochs.

Our current exhibition ‘The Simple Sense of Existence’ by Eemil Karila (@eemilkarila ) is open to the public today, Saturday, May 30th from 12-6pm, with access through Robert Grunenberg Gallery on the 1st floor. ⁣

Eemil Karila is always on the lookout for nature that still persists in urban spaces. With the world on the verge of ecological disaster, perceptions are shifting to a new sensibility towards nature, its beauty and presence, things we all too often take for granted. Karila’s paintings include wild flowers that have grown in stretches of wasteland, overgrown backyards and other desolate areas. The artists works are a reminder of the importance of nature on a small-scale, an ode to natura minora. First and foremost it is a romantic notion, yet is also an ethical requirement for mankind.⁣

Opening hours are every Saturday from 12-6pm and by appointment, please email [email protected].⁣

We are delighted to announce that our current exhibition, ‘The Simple Sense of Existence’ by Eemil Karila @eemilkarila will be open to the public from this Saturday, 25 April, 12-6pm and by appointment. While we are excited to re-open, we will be taking precautions to insure the safety of our staff and visitors. ⁣

Eemil Karila’s landscapes allow him to show how nature is a part of our world and that we can treat it well. He believes that contemporary art addresses not only aesthetic, but also moral and philosophical issues. Life, the world and art must not be separated; rather they can be lived and experienced as a whole. The artist reminds us of the importance to look deeper and zoom in on the essence of our existence.⁣

Karila paints directly on thick uncoated linen. The process resembles making a fresco, where all the paint and pigments are sucked in, making the act of painting a slow process but one that accentuates the intensity of the pigments. Karila also draws with thick oil bars on the ink-soaked canvases, which creates a vivid surface. The slowness of his working process fits the depiction of nature well, as nature runs on a schedule of its own.⁣

Opening tomorrow, Saturday, 28 March, Eemil Karila’s @eemilkarila solo exhibition ‘The Simple Sense of Existence’, at the Miettinen collection. ⁣

Eemil Karila’s (1978) latest exhibition, The Simple Sense of Existence, is in the artist’s own words, “a post-human manifestation, an ensemble of works that I hope will encourage us to see and respect the nature around us, to forget ourselves and abandon our human-centric worldview.”⁣

The artist has been on the lookout for nature that still persists in urban spaces. With the world on the verge of ecological disaster, perceptions are shifting to a new sensibility towards nature, its beauty and presence, things we all too often take for granted.

14/02/2020

Opening this Friday, February 14th from 7pm at the Weserburg Museum for Modern Art the exhibition, ‘The Way We Are 2.0’ will feature works from the Miettinen Collection by artists such as Bernard Frize, Julian Röder, Jussi Niva, Etel Adnan, Louise Bourgeois, Katharina Grosse, Leiko Ikemura, Barthélemy Toguo and Marianna Uutinen.
Curated by Ingo Clauß and Janneke de Vries, ‘The Way We Are’ is designed as a multi-part series, which is brought to life once a year in an extensive variation. Works migrate from one thematic space to another, disappear for a certain time or make their first appearance. Constellations of works are shuffled; thematic assertions are reworked and artists’ spaces are installed. The result is an unexpected manner of reading contemporary art from the 1960s to today across all the media.

The exhibition will be on view from 15.02.2020 - 10.01.2021 at Weserburg Museum for Modern Art, from Tuesday to Sunday, 11am-6pm.
