Plastic Revue, opening on Sun. 26th. January at 6 p.m.
Galerie M, Marzahner Promenade 46, 12679 Berlin
The work of Manfred Kirschner is characterized by its conscious diversity. Often the expectations and the relationship of the artist to the audience, the subject of the works in the fields of drawing, video, painting and performance. Since 2009, M.K. a new emphasis on painting, in which, in addition to colours and glitter, collage, quotations and language are used laconically and arrogantly. Many of the paintings have painted eyes and their titles are looking for the “conversation”. It is always about the anerite and the moment of the viewer’s reception. In the presentation for Gallery M, Kirschner refers to the local shopping center “Eastgate”. In a world increasingly full of plastic, his installation humorously asks about our needs, our future lives, and puts painting and video in context with a spatial installation of various plastic bags from around the world that cover the gallery’s walls like a color-intensive collage. At the opening, Kirschner will also present a performance on the topic of shopping: The Miracle Of Shopping. At the finissage at the end of March, the title-giving “Plastik Revue” will start, with performances and musical performances by fellow artists by Manfred Kirschner.
