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.
(33)

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.

We are thrilled to announce that artist Amoako Boafo (@amoakoboafo) and
Sanna Marin, Prime Minister of Finland, have been featured among the 2021 @time Next 100 personalities.
____

Amoako Boafo has been included in the 2021 Time Next 100 Artists. This past year, Kim Jones (@mrkimjones), the artistic director of @dior Men, has launched a collaboration with him, making Boafo the first African artist to develop a line with the French fashion house.

His work "highlights Black identity and the African diaspora with complexity and warmth", Time has written.
_____

At 35, Sanna Marin is the youngest female state leader, and Finland's youngest-ever prime minister. She is featured in the 2021 Time Next 100 Leaders and on the magazine cover.

Thanks to her timely intervention against the COVID-19 pandemic, Finland has succeeded in setting an example for other countries.

We look forward to cooperating with Ms Marin on initiatives related to the fostering of arts and culture within Finland and throughout the world.

The Miettinen Collection presenting "Alexander Basil" @alexanderbasil_ curated by Kirsi Mikkola @turbogenua REMAINS CLOSED.

"Alexander started his studies as a 17 year old in the Academy of Art in Düsseldorf. By the time he came to Vienna in 2018 at the age of 21, he had mastered the compositional aspects of pictorial thinking. Our discussions were focused on how to infuse life into these ambitious compositions, where simple, flat surfaces are animated with precise and often exquisite detail. There is tension and volume in his almost monumental renditions of two bodies intertwined. Three dimensional space is created by lovers engaging in a tender embrace. Their gaze keeps them, and us hostage."

- Passage from the exhibition Text by Kirsi Mikkola.

In light of the new extended restrictions of governmental authorities revolving the spreading of Corona virus we will stay temporarily closed to the public until further notice.

While we wait for the postponed exhibition opening “Alexander Basil" @alexanderbasil_ exhibition curated by Kirsi Mikkola @turbogenua, we’re happy to share some installation shots and works from the show with you. ⠀

Alexander Basil and Kirsi Mikkola met in 2018 at the Academy of Fine Art Vienna during the Annual Rundgang, where they instantly connected. Mikkola states about his work: ⠀

"Drawing is the basis on which he builds his paintings. The outlines are rhythmic and sharp. However, the unique way Alexander involves us in reflections of expressive intimacy give his work a reassuring, universal appeal." ⠀

Repost from the @collectors_agenda: Timo Miettinen is Chairman of the EM Group Oy in Finland and is one of the most famous Finnish collectors of contemporary art worldwide. The Miettinen Collection, which focuses primarily on painting, comprises more than 1,200 works by artists of different generations and nationalities. We met him at his house in his adopted home of Berlin and talked to him about his passion for collecting, his eye for recognizing talented young artists, and how the art historical canon is likely to change in the future.

Read the whole story online via the link in our bio.

Many thanks to Collectors Agenda for the feature, and to Sylvia Metz for the interview and Nora Heinisch for the images.

Our current exhibition closes next month on August 01. Stop by Saturday’s from 12-6pm for your last chance to view ‘Touch Me: Nudes from the Miettinen Collection.’

Image: St. Sebastian, (1987) Markus Lüpertz. Bronze and paint, 223 x 78 x 92 cm dimensions variable. Courtesy of the artist and the Miettinen Collection.

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 n**e, 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⁣

“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 n**e is the oldest artistic genre and the most enigmatic at that. To this very day it awkwardly bridges high art and je****ff 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 po*******hy? 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 n**e. A n**e 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 n**es than now. Touching remains complicated; looking, however, is pretty safe. Though the contemporary may predominate in “Touch Me”, the Miettinen collection offers n**es from several epochs.
