A tiny gallery pop-up show at Zwitxhermaschine Gallery in Berlin quickly illustrates quite literally the narrative that is often on the street between different pieces and players.
In this case the photographs by Manfred Weber, the only two on display in this storefront space, were entirely unconnected until author Nora Linneman joined them in her mind and her imagination.
The calligraffitist Parisurteil literally tagged the story across the two pieces, a painted tattoo of text that wends across the walls, ceiling and floor of the space in such a way that you may become dizzy standing in the all-white box as you follow the narrative thread around the space.
The photographer, the writer and the urban calligrapher all come together to create “Einen Tag lang für immer” (roughly translated as “For one day forever”) – an uncommon story told by many.
“In very few circumstances do you get this kind of mix of people together,” says Michelle Houston, who co-curated the show with Denis Leo Hegic. “We were looking to make a collaborative piece and we think that bringing different disciplines together is quite unusual.”
If you are in Berlin this weekend and would like to hear Nora Linnemann’s enchanting story read by the author at 4 pm Sunday September 9th.
Einen Tag land für immer is organized by Denis Leo Hegic and Michelle Houston at the Zwitschermaschibe Galerie in Berlin. The exhibition closes on September 12th, 2018.
