Sara Riel at Conturbanaries Art Fair Berlin

Press Release

CONTURBANARIES Art Fair returns this fall for its second year, having firmly established itself as Berlin’s premiere event for contemporary art with its roots embedded in urban culture.

Over a period of four days during the Berlin Art Week, opening on September 18th 2014, our eclectic program showcases a generation of artists often overlooked in other German mainstream art fairs, yet who are widely acclaimed by international institutions and collectors throughout the world.

Attracting some of the most talked about artists, galleries, and curators from the finer side of the urban art movement and its related subcultures, CONTURBANARIES Art Fair rallies against the familiar grind of the art fair season with an experiential and immersive focus. Breaking from the traditional format, we take a curatorial approach to exhibiting handpicked galleries and artists in a bespoke and stimulating environment. With STATTBAD, Berlin’s leading underground cultural venue, we found extraordinary location to host the event.

Kristján Gudmundsson and Donald Judd at Safn Berlin

ea7370b8-a49d-43db-8e4c-6da362ad42e6
Press Release

Kristján Guðmundsson
Faster and Slower and Cause and Consequence
September 12, 2014 – January 31, 2015
Opening: Thursday, September 11, 6-9pm

Safn Berlin | Levetzowstr. 16 | Berlin 10555

The exhibition at Safn Berlin introduces early works by the artist that can be considered milestones in Guðmundsson’s career and his overall understanding of art and material. Part of the exhibition title refers to a work series from the 1970s, “Cause and Consequence”, in which Guðmundsson went through numerous possibilities of cause and consequence within geometric line structures.
Also in the 70s, the artist began to experiment with drawing, although he did not do so in the conventional sense. By expanding his drawings to the three-dimensional, he pushed the limits of the medium while at the same time denying its decisive two-dimensional quality. The act of drawing was replaced by arranging industrially produced materials, such as pencil leads and entire rolls of paper. Guðmundsson’s drawings, or his “lines and objects”, were independent of the paper or any other surface and became their own inherent support.
