Durden and Ray is pleased to present our next iteration of the ongoing relationship with our sister city Berlin in the “B/LA Connect” exhibition exchanges with Axel Obiger Gallery.
This exhibition, “Widerhall/Reverberations” considers the physical and metaphysical repercussions across time and place. Dualities of organic and inorganic structures echo in the works that live side by side in the show as well as within each artist’s work. The artists from both cities highlight the conditions of the individual, social, architectural and environmental events and processes that affect their cities and then articulate these events as visual explorations in their own shifting senses of memory, time, and space. The viewer is invited to experience a resonance between the works that belies any perceived distance – a relationship where each side stimulates the other. Where formal structures meld into abstraction and objective facts turn into poetry.
Founded in 2009 as a project space for contemporary art in Berlin, Axel Obiger focuses on dialogues between its artists and invited guests. With their extensive program the Axel Obiger artists have created an international venue for intensive artistic debates.
