11th Berlin Biennale for Contemporary Art
Since September 2019, the Biennale has been unfolding in a temporary project space in Berlin in three different experiences. Presentations, performances, workshops, and artist residencies have taken place as precursors to this last experience, the epilogue. These articulate diverse modes of solidarity, fragility, and resistance. From September 5th to November 1st, 2020, the epilogue will present a set of works by Chilean artist Oscar Morales, including one that we have lent them on the occasion. The exhibition will bring together in four locations (KW Institute for Contemporary Art - daadgalerie - Gropius Bau - ExRotaprint) these experiences and the issues they raise.
Curated by María Berríos, Renata Cervetto, Lisette Lagnado, and Agustín Pérez Rubio.
Using an invented formula, which consists of matching each letter of the alphabet to a number, Morales creates and designs machines that are both electrical and organic: cells, nuclei, atoms, etc. This Chilean artist, represented by the gallery since 2014, was the subject of a major exhibition in 2018 at the MAVI (Museo de Arte Visuale) in Santiago de Chile. In 2020, a set of his drawings will be exhibited at the Berlin Biennale. Already present in the abcd/Bruno Decharme (France) and Treger Saint Silvestre (Portugal) collections, his work has been reproduced in several publications.
