There is strong shadow where there is much light @ Vanilla Gallery

The Berliner art platform Cell63 invites you to join its wonderland of mystical tales visualized by wicked storytellers Elena Helfrecht (Germany), Luisa Catucci (Italy) and Marta Sklodowska (Poland) in their exhibition, ‘There is a strong shadow where there is much light – Tales from Europe with love’ at Vanilla Gallery in Toyko from 9 February 2015. Three woman from three different countries, picking from three different traditions, using three different media to drown you in the feminine side of European mystic tales.

The echo of an untuned piano in a big empty house. Ghosts coming in darkness to your bed. Forgotten Goddesses caressing your hair while you sleep and whispering protecting litanies in your ear. This exhibition will showcase a series of artworks which inevitably present their beholders with narratives that frequently cause mixed feelings and which are often perceived differently by each individual. In many cases beauty, romance, melancholy, dismay and curiosity are terms that come up at the same time when the works of these visual storytellers are being discussed.

 

〜調子はずれのピアノの旋律が廃墟となった大きな空家に寒々と響き、夜の帳の中から、私たちのベッドのすぐそこまで、ゴーストがやってくる。忘れられた女神たちが、眠っているあなたの髪を優しく梳きながら、拒むことのできない耳元で、呪文を囁く〜

ベルリンのアート・プラットフォームCell63より、暗黒のストーリテラー、Elena Helfrecht/エレナ・ヘルフレヒト(ドイツ)、Luisa Catucci/ルイーザ・カトゥッチ(イタリア)、Marta Sklodowska/マルタ・スクロドヴォスカ(ポーランド)の三名の女性作家を迎えて、神秘的なビジュアル世界へあなたをご招待します。ヨーロッパの三つの異なる国の、三つの異なる伝統の中から、三つの異なるメディアを用いて、中世ヨーロッパの神秘的なおとぎ話を、現代のフェミニンでダークネスな世界に意味を置きかえ暗喩する展覧会です。 ロマンスやメランコリックな感情、毅然と狼狽とした心情、観客によって異なる知覚の物語が繰り広げられ、
