The Art Union Presents: Peter Phobia "I'll Bring You Flowers" (Berlin, Germany)


Read from the press release below:

On the occasion of Berlin Art Week, the non-profit art association THE ART UNION will present „I’ll Bring You Flowers“ a solo exhibition by Vienna-based visual artist Peter Phobia.
As complementary part of the exhibition, Peter Phobia painted a 400sqm mural in the context of a partnership between Berliner Union Film and THE ART UNION. Last but not the least, an exclusive 3-colour screen print will be released for the show in an edition of 50 and will be available through: www.the-art-union.de

With the new body of work presented in ‘I’ll Bring You Flowers’ Peter Phobia deals with a society that is perpetually connected to social media and therefore taking this as a main platform for political information and education. In a world where it seems to be the most desirable thing to be well-presented and acclaimed in the online cosmos it get’s harder and harder to filter scam and adequate information – politic-wise, career-wise and social-wise, we get blinded by empty promises on a daily basis. It therefore does not surprise that looking at Peter Phobia’s collage work, which readopts a lot from the aesthetics of the late 70s and 80s, immediately gets the spectator in a feeling of sweet melancholy. It is the spirit of a time which marks the last ‘analogue time period’ before the introduction of the internet completely turned around our lives. Yet, this warm sense of well-being soon gets cracked once one pays more attention to the scribbled notes next to the pictures. They act like a reminder to stop us from blindly falling for superficial offers that trigger us with fake attractiveness like a bouquet of flowers, given as an apology for mistreatment.

The exhibition will take place from September 15th to October 1st at Sound of Snow, Dieffenbachstr. 37 in Berlin-Kreuzberg.

The opening reception will take place at Sound of Snow on Friday, September 15th, 17:00 – 22:00 in presence of the artist.
Party from 22:00 on.
