Vernissage on Friday 16 August 2013 at 8 pm
Finissage on 14 September 2013 at 8 pm with Silky and the Thossers
In „The Return of Moby Dick“ Silke Thoss gives the spectator an insight to her free world and variety of ideas. Inspired by the famous novel by Hermann Melville, the artist develops in her pointedly humorous paintings, an ironical, freaked out series of pictures, which also refers to the art production and its conditions with much esprit. The show is completed by objects, a painted product series of consumer items that look like from a parallel world. For example: Joke Soap is presented in the shop window which, after use, makes you laugh about everything. Just like in our complex designed consumer society, there is a big assortment of „mind-expanding“ cremes and soaps of the brand Silky, that work just contrary through its visual presence.
At the finissage on friday, september the 14th, Silky and the Tossers will perform in the exhibition, wich is also „Die lange Nacht der Bilder“ at Friedrichshain-Kreuzberg.
