Guided tour to the exhibition By Ear
Saturday, May 21, 2022, 6 – 7 pm, free of charge
A cooperation between Tiger Strikes Asteroid (LA) and Axel Obiger.
In music, playing by ear is a term for performing a piece from memory and intuition rather than from a proper score. By Ear takes inspiration from this concept and uses it as a mod-el for collaboration between visual artists from Berlin and Los Angeles/New York.
Delayed for almost two years, the exhibition at Axel Obiger Gallery will showcase works created by Los Angeles and New York based artists following concepts from Berlin based artists in the orbit of Axel Obiger.
Each artist in the exhibition has made a new artwork based solely on audio descriptions of an existing artwork created by artists from the other city. It is an exercise in interpretation and imagination and willfully limited communication in an age defined by fluid and constant contact. It is a way for artists to be generous with their ideas, diminish their ego and try to harmonize with a fellow artist from another culture.
Work by: Johanna Braun, Vanessa Chow, Vita Eruhimovitz, Jacob Feige, Laura Greengold, Kirstin Lamb, Michael Neimiez, Liz Nurenberg, Kari Reardon, Jackie Rines & Chris Ulivo.
Concept by: Alke Brinkmann, Thilo Droste, Juliane Duda, Nathalie Grenzhaeuser, Harriet Groß, Gabriele Künne, Matthias Moravek, Enrico Niemann, Maja Rohwetter.
An exhibition of work by Berlin based artists took place in Los Angeles at Tiger Strikes Asteroid Gallery in April-May 2022.
