Exhibition Opening: Performance with facial pastries at the cake buffet
Beside their own positions, in this exhibition, the artists are presenting tarts and cakes who wear the portraits of their artist friends and serve them in their cake performance. The project „eat the poor artist“ refers in a funny way by its cannibalistic aspects to the resorption, reception and social valuation of artistic work anyhow.

Veronika Schumacher works with Pop strategies. She´s transforming sujets and images from pulp fiction novels, comics, museum catalogues and popular science books into her drawing work. The artist is creating an iconographic growth of pictures, that captures over the classical borders of defined artwork on ornamental wallpapers, the gallery rooms.

In miniature installations of spaces, interieurs and processes which consciously deviate in their measurements slightly from realism, the artist creates a detailed image of objects that distinguish our remembrance of things. Christian Nils Haake does not use any corrective measurement or copy for the creation of his miniatures, he builds them purely by his memories. The exhibition presents a new title giving work, a small sized, detailed installation of a messy living room.

Exhibition opening with summer festival
For the three day summer exhibition at gallery crystal ball we show an actual andselfconfident work of the Berlin artist Martin Löhr. „My biggest success“ uses, throughout its setting, the gallery space itself and its medial context, both, in a reduced and effective way for transcendence.
Also at the vernissage, Juwelia Soraya and Zsa Zsa Puppengesicht once beauty dancers, will show their performance „Sambafee“ and give us insight into the Show World of primitive glamour of Berlins celebrated Trash Singers.
29.6 – 20.7.2007
Exhibition opening with performance by the artist
The works of the artist Sabine Wewer form in her painterly technique of Wu Wei, the conscious reduction of their gesture, a poetic difference from the real, by approaching parallel pictorial spaces that can correspond to cognitive dream images. For the exhibition in Berlin, the artist realizes a performance that works with her language, the texture of her body and its covering.
