Adam Magyar, poète des mégalopoles

Adam Magyar est un artiste berlinois passionné des sujets urbains. En effet, il ne cesse dans son travail d’aborder nos modes de vie de citadin: la mégalopole, une existence les uns sur les autres. Une proximité peu naturelle que nous impose l’urbanisme, nos emplois « à la ville ».

On ne peut pas ne pas parler de la proxémie d’Edward T. Hall. Cet éminent Anthropologue parle des différentes distances séparant les êtres en fonction de l’intimité ou non pouvant subsister entre eux. Ces distances physiques évoluent selon les cultures et les contextes. Il dégage différentes sphères telles que la sphère intime, la personnelle ou encore la sociale et la publique. Elles varient entre 15 cm et plus de 3,6 m. Le modèle de la mégalopole que nous connaissons nous impose sa proximité avec les trottoirs, les transports en commun ainsi que les ascenseurs. Je ne vous parle pas des terrasses parisiennes.

Au-delà de l’intimité subie par ces citadins qui ne se connaissent même pas, il semble qu’A. Magyar observe la foule comme une structure d’individus liés par un objectif commun comme le simple fait de prendre le même métro. Ce lien n’est pas si désuet, il rassemble et créé la foule, la masse et la nomme par son but.

Cette communion d’individualités peut être artificielle car reconstituée à travers le projet Square, où les sujets sont pris en photo un par un et composés en foule numériquement. Puis, à travers le fascinant projet Stainless (vidéo à droite), la foule est tout ce qu’il y a de plus réelle. Le slowmotion inscrit la scène dans une poésie du quotidien, une véritable restitution d’un moment de communion aussi banal soit-il.

À travers son travail, l’artiste nous offre une nouvelle dimension à la street photography, même à la frontière entre la vidéo et la photographie, c’est un moment unique de la vie urbaine en face duquel le spectateur est à la fois voyeur et identifié comme possible acteur de la scène.

Pour suivre son travail c’est ici

Va Va Voo

Need some cool clobber in Kreuzberg? Independent clothes store Voo is the place for you, right in the middle of the Berlin arts district and, geographically and spiritually, a mile away from the usual high street fashion boutiques. Voo is home to Companion Coffee, whose simple pleasures whetted our appetite not long ago, and now we’re all hyped up on caffeine, it’s time to sneak some new threads onto the company credit card.

There’s scope to do as much or as little damage to the plastic as the credit limit allows here, as Voo buyer Herbert Hofmann has assembled a diverse range of brands to tickle the fancy. The Voo premises was formerly a locksmith, and no expense has been spent making the place look pretty after its industrial occupant moved out. The rough and ready, semi-abandoned aesthetic is a good look, and we especially like the bits of architectural salvage that has been recycled here and there – just look at that brilliant decorative slab enticing the customer towards the cash register. Sneaky move!

No Holds Barred

Dorothy Iannone is an artist with balls, and This Sweetness Outside of Time, a retrospective of her long and illustrious career, displays her unflinching autobiographical style in all its glory. Beginning her career in the late 1950s, the American’s style really blossomed on meeting Dieter Roth in the late ’60s. This intense seven-year relationship moved the artist to place herself and Roth at the centre of her passionate works. Regularly falling foul of the censors, her sexually explicit scenes draw on influences from religious art from Christianity, Buddhism and Indian Tantrism, as well as collage and pop art.

Iannone’s time with Roth marked a long association with Germany; the pair lived in Dusseldorf, and in 1976 Iannone was awarded a DAAD Artists-in-Berlin grant and moved to the capital, where she has lived and worked ever since. The Berlinische Galerie has curated this retrospective – which includes objects, books and films in addition to the paintings – from the artist’s personal archive and those of worldwide collectors; the exhibition will run from 20 February to 2 June.

Simple Pleasures

Nestled in the bosom of its confidante and partner-in-hip, Berlin’s Companion Coffee is the in-house coffee shop of stylish Kreuzberg garment peddler, Voo. Matching in aesthetic and defiant approach to simplicity, Companion Coffee offers up coffee (of course) and tea (not-so of course), alongside a limited selection of baked goodies. Simple.

Design-wise, the script alters little. Simple reclaimed woods, simple vintage pieces and very simple branding. CC’s extravagant break for a freedom of eclecticism and wonder is a creaky old bathtub upcycled into a handsome planter – but even the simplicity of greenery planted brings temporary fantasy quickly back down to earth. Paired down. Simple. Those in charge of the beans at Companion are some of the most experienced in the city, offering training and consultation as a side-order with your morning espresso. Some say the mere mention alone of a mocha-frappu-wocka could result in instant lynching ’round these parts. Keep it: simple.

Studio Karhard – T03

Studio Karhard just renovated 2 appartements in Berlin, Germany, merging them into one huge flat called TO3. Every room was designed to get the more space possible and to let natural light in. This way, TO3 is really wide and bright and there is no useless wall. Who doesn’t want to live there ? Check out the other projects of Studio Karhard at karhard.de.

A City United

Whatever Germany is doing, everyone else should be copying. With an economy a good deal less disastrous than the rest of Europe, and (get this) a capital city that’s actually affordable to live in without selling bodily fluids on the black market, it’s no surprise that Berlin continues its creative ascent in stratospheric proportions. A particularly attractive option for artistic types – who have been flocking there to enjoy the bohemian, open-all-hours scene and to contribute to making Berlin a cauldron of creativity ever since the wall dropped – the city has one of the world’s most prominent arts and culture scenes.

Neonchocolate is one of the city’s many cultural success stories; having opened as a gallery in Prenzlauer Berg as recently as 2010, Uwe Neu and Oliver Thoben’s multi-disciplinary venture is now an established part of the Berlin scene. In cooking up Berlin What? – a book and exhibition tour – the two editors have given the city’s artistic melting pot a stir and ladled out a massive plateful of creative yumminess. More than 100 international artists are featured in the project, unified by having the good fortune to call Berlin home, and in total the publication boasts over 500 works. A full list of contributors, dates of relevant international book fairs, and online ordering, is available here.

Come Unstuck

If I was going to pick one branch of the fine arts to blunder around in, it would have to be collage. Collage artists just look like they have far more fun than the poor old tortured painters, and you get to play with knives without anyone hovering nervously in the background with restraints and a syringe at the ready. There is a bit of the mad scientist about collage though, as demonstrated by the weird and wonderful creations brought together for The Age of Collage, an exhibition of 31 artists’ work at Berlin’s Gestalten Space, the Mitte design store cum gallery opened a few years back by the eponymous book publisher.

Through the eyes of these artists we are reminded that beauty is only skin deep; Frenchman Mathieu Bourel shows us in anatomical fashion what he sees beneath the surface of Sophia Loren in Princess/Headcut, while Swiss artist Beni Bischof induces chuckles and winces in equal measure with his creepy sausage interventions on glossy model shots. Abstract, textural, social commentary and everything besides is covered, and with advancing technology constantly influencing both collage production techniques and source material, this exhibition is a great chance to catch up with the leaders of the field. The show finishes on 5 January.

Product Placement

What better way to show off your range of designer homewares and fashion accessories than in a home? Located on the third floor of a residential street in East Berlin, BLESS Home Berlin kicks the traditional showroom to the kerb and instead offers visitors an “enhanced living experience” – a functional apartment where you can pop in for a sit down and a cup of tea, have a rummage through the cupboards, or even catch 40 winks in a hammock. You do have to negotiate three flights of stairs, but it already sounds more appealing than a Sunday morning visit to IKEA.

BLESS Home Berlin is the brand’s second presence in the city, replacing the first which opened in 2003, but the idea of displaying products in their native environment is a marked conceptual departure. It evolved from a BLESS collector’s home; as the collection grew, it became clear that a home packed with their products would be the ideal display environment. You can make an appointment to visit, or drop in to the flat at Oderbergerstrasse 60 on Thursday and Friday afternoons for open house viewing.
