On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of carlier | gebauer berlin madrid, four temporary exhibitions will take place over a period of eighteen months. The respective exhibition concept was developed by Friedrich Meschede who has been a companion to the gallery over the years of its existence. The aim of the exhibi- tions is to present the broad portfolio of artists represented by the gallery in group exhibitions and to allow them to enter into a dialogue.
For the second anniversary exhibition, which was on display from 4th of March until 25th of April, I have been commissioned to design a scenography. The prelude to my exhibition design is the chapel-like entrance room through which the visitor enters the former warehouses.
The aim of my colour intervention is to break up the symmetrical structure of the entrance room through the large free form and to embrace the visitor with a strongly colored design as a form of welcome. Across the green floor, which may well be interpreted as a lush spring meadow and with the reawakening of life, the visitor steps up a small staircase and arrives in the main room of the gallery. The ceiling joist, mirrored across the horizon axis, serves as a pedestal for sculptures, but its green colouring is reminiscent of a hill and is in direct correspondence with the floor of the entrance room. The blue door frame and the yellow wall in the entrance also reappear as recurring colour elements in the main rooms.
In collaboration with Friedrich Meschede.
