Joachim Perez

Opening
Thursday 15 July
from 6 pm

@ Motto Berlin

Men have always depicted naked women. Joachim Perez took this observation as a starting point,  appropriating a medium codified as feminine — embroidery — to depict male bodies. Working primarily with sewing and embroideries, he began to create large-scale installations that explore masculinity and sexuality in a defined space.

Following his residency at the Musée Jenisch (Vevey, Switzerland), where the classicism of the paintings in the permanent collection clashed with the elasticity of his works, Perez presents a new series of embroideries at Motto, this time on tarpaulin. Limited to the gallery’s glass cabinets, his embroideries stress a back and forth in his practice between the male body displayed in an unaffected manner and the constraints imposed by the space in which it is exhibited. Indeed, Perez’s works speak of our gaze, tensions and the internal dialogue that results from the tendency to both desire and reject eroticism. The partial unveiling of the works engages the visitor to develop a narrative aroused by the latent violence of bodies kept in glass cages.

Stick Your Finger – a Recollection by Marc Bauer

Stick Your Finger – a Recollection

Marc Bauer

Opening
Thursday 15 July
from 6 pm

@ Motto Berlin

Another Mobile Gallery is pleased to invite you to Marc Bauer’s exhibition entitled Stick Your Finger – a Recollection which will take place on the 15th of July, hosted by Motto Berlin. Summoning the public to a meditation on the body and the sense of touch, the artist has put together 12 works to express difficult themes such as sexuality and the implied dichotomy of care and abuse, blended with his own personal experiences and memories as a teenager in the 1980s. The artworks will not be displayed in a traditional format, but will be shown as part of a collaborative performance where the public will interact directly, as an homage to the recent reality of the pandemic and the restrictions universally faced for the past year and a half.

Another Mobile Gallery is a dynamic, alternative space thought out as a stand-in for the usual contemporary art gallery. Starting out in the shape of a van, AMG isn’t currently tied to a physical space but it continues with the main purpose of providing pop-up shows which can take place anywhere in the world. Born out of pure passion by making use of minimal resources, this project continues to ensure the promotion of young, up-and-coming artists as well as established creators, while presenting them with the same challenge faced by AMG’s owner in the first place: create something extraordinary from little to nothing; the sky is the limit.

Criminal Garden

Hiroshi Takizawa at Motto Berlin

Criminal Garden

Project01: “Assumption”
Criminal profiling is used as an investigation technique to hypothesize on a suspect figure. An assumed portrait is inferred and emerges from what is left of a particular setting or crime scene. I am intrigued by the development of such assumed figures, as well as the fact that these profiles are fictional and nonexistent unless replaced by an asserted criminal.

“Assumption” consists of scanned images of objects found in ordinary surroundings. Instead of shooting or scanning a flat surface, I chose to scan objects with uneven surfaces as a method to emphasize the distortion of the outcome. As a result, the images are highly detailed, yet far from the objects’ original shapes and forms. The method also allows me to illustrate that the process of reproduction can result in a fictitious representation of an object. To me, there is a similarity in the process of profiling and scanning in the sense that both processes creates a fictional and imaginary image. In this work, I aim create an image of a fictitious profile, although there may not be any criminal context to it. What interests me is that the scanned objects gain a fictional character that reveals the possibility of an additional dimension to its existence, and furthermore, a suggestion that the fictional existence is in fact closer to reality.

This is the first publication on the plays of New York–based experimental theater director and playwright Richard Maxwell (born 1967) and his company New York City Players. His plays have been commissioned by The Wexner Center, Columbus; The Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Performance Space 122, The Kitchen and Soho Rep in New York; and The Barbican Centre, London. The book captures the experience of actually watching the plays by way of screen-grabs and captions, and in doing so documents nearly 20 years of work.

Edition of 125
numbered

What did the generation that came of age during the sixties do for an encore? Many of the answers seemed to have slipped below the media’s plumb line. A Letter to My Father and My Unborn Son, a journal by Aram Saroyan with art by Gailyn Saroyan, takes us to the American bicentennial year, 1976, as the young poet and artist await the arrival of their third child in Bolinas, a small coastal village in rural Northern California. Here is the day-to-day journey of a young family–at once intimate, surprising, and funny.
