Andro Wekua –  It Seems Like That – Berlin

Andro Wekua
It Seems Like That
September 17–October 30, 2021

On the occasion of Berlin Art Week, Sprüth Magers announces a solo exhibition by Andro Wekua, presenting new paintings. Building on the artist’s practice, regularly working between figuration and evocative abstraction, the new body of work depicts a reduced visual language. Wekua’s works have an almost magnetic quality that oscillates between seduction and repulsion, creating a mysteriousness and intrigue that is captivating – if also slightly unsettling – to the viewer in its direct appeal to their emotional psyche.

Otto Piene was an artistic pioneer, from his years as co-founder of the Zero group in Düsseldorf to his massive environmental installations across the United States and Europe. This exhibition explores his Sky Art projects in particular, illuminating their experimental, participatory and collaborative nature. This phase of his work flourished to a large degree through the opportunities and connections he made at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT)—with artists such as Nam June Paik, Charlotte Moorman and Elizabeth Goldring—where he was a fellow (1968–74) and later director (1974–94) of the Center for Advanced Visual Studies (CAVS). Some of Piene's most spectacular Sky Art performances were realized in collaboration with fellow artist and life-long friend Charlotte Moorman, who holds a special place in this exhibition.
