Press release

"Galerie Tanja Wagner inaugurates its space on September 25 at Pohlstraße 64, Berlin-Schöneberg with the group exhibition Die Tür geht nach Innen auf.

Doors can prohibit the passage from one room to the other, but they can also facilitate it.
Most of them do both. Doors negotiate between a somewhere and an elsewhere; the outside and the inside; between one room and the next.

The exhibition presents works by Mariechen Danz, Paula Doepfner, Sejla Kameric, Issa Sant and Angelika J. Trojnarski. Even though the artists engange with different subjects and materials, they each seek to create a tension between two situations, indeed, between two spaces.
All works negotiate between the sayable and the visible: between what can be said and what can be shown, representation and presence. However the first impulse is always set by the art work.

 

The works convey enthusiasm as well as irony.

They play with hope and melancholy, oscilliate between knowledge and naivety, empathy and apathy, wholeness and fragmentation, purity and ambiguity, while looking for a truth without expecting to find it; which corresponds to what Timotheus Vermeulen and Robin van den Akker have termed metamodernism."
