2 Jun 2020 — 6 Jun 2020
The gallery is pleased to present Andrej Dúbravský for the 6th installment of our weekly series, Berliner Luft, on view Tuesday, 02 June until Saturday, 06 June. Through figuration, landscapes, and occasional abstraction, Dúbravský’s paintings articulate his reflections in empathetic yet unsparing studies of the environment and its devastation, of man and nature. For Berliner Luft, the artist will present, for the first time in Berlin, a seminal series of works on paper titled Chem Farmers (2016), accompanied by an installation of ceramic works from his series Vases (2015). The period from 2015–2016 marks the year Dúbravský relocated his home and studio to the Slovakian countryside, in the village of Rastislavice, and established his farm and garden. His passion for developing and maintaining this land required active engagement with the local phenomena as well as the farming community. While incredibly inspiring, this period marks a shift in Dúbravský’s work.
