Framed Process – The Exhibition
Daniel M Thurau, Kanako Ishii, Moran Sanderovich, Samira Hodaei
Simplonstraße 29, 10245 Berlin
Almost a year ago, during the first lockdown, we launched Framed Process. Berlin-based artists were granted a month-long stipend for the creation of a new project without leaving the confinement of their homes.
“Framed Process – The Exhibition” features works by four of the artists who participated in the project throughout the year.
It aims at capturing something of the gravity of that moment. For a while, the veil hiding and protecting us from the bare, fragile, and sometimes brutal reality of things, was perforated. With our carefully woven constructions of habit and confidence shaken, we got a glimpse of the elaborate systems we built and in which we are caught.
The artworks on view, in different mediums (Painting, Sculpture, and Video) bare the sign of immense meditation and attentive listening as well as those of anxious vulnerability and despair.
