Katrin Fridriks recently rounded up a successful year with an solo exhibition at Circle Culture in Berlin. Opened on the 21st of November, Stendhal Syndrome is the most challenging show that Icelandic abstract conceptual artist has put together to date.

Showing: Katrin Fridriks – “Leak of Information” @ Circleculture Gallery (Berlin)

Last month, Circleculture Gallery served as ground zero for Katrin Fridriks newest body of work. Entitled Leak of Information (previewed), the Icelandic-born, Paris-based artist unleashed her abstract mania on Berlin in striking fashion. An impressive series of monochromatic works supplemented her more conventional color rich pieces, which first made waves on the scene a London group show, The Future Tense (covered), last year. Set upon appropriately colored black and white painted walls, the unbridled energy of Fridrick’s work, a Jackson Pollock-like amalgam of motion and […]

Teaser: Katrin Fridriks – “Leak of Information” @ Circleculture Gallery (Berlin)

Last we saw Katrin Fridriks’ work, she stole a London group show (covered) with her signature abstract color explosions. It now appears she has muted the palette, akin to one of the works exhibited prior, presenting a selection of monochromatic works composed in her uniquely organic fashion. Opening Thursday, April 28th at Circleculture Gallery in Berlin, the Icelandic born Paris-based artist will be targeting the ubiquitous technological underpinnings of modern society with her departure to more metallic color tones – silver, gold, steel, cooper, aluminum.

Openings: “Self-Portraits” @ Circle Culture Gallery

It’s always interesting to see how an artist views themselves, especially in the context of their own art. “Self Portraits” (previewed) which opened recently in Berlin at Circle Culture Gallery is based exactly on this concept. Each artist created a piece in their distinctive style that they felt best represented themselves. Take a look at what they came up with, after the jump…

Preview: “Self-Portraits” @ Circle Culture Gallery

AM was lucky enough to get an advance look at what will surely be the most sought after pieces at “Self-Portraits,” Circle Culture Gallery’s latest offering opening tomorrow, Friday, June 5th in Berlin. Seen above is JR’s “Self-Portrait in a Woman’s Eye, Kenya” from the 28 Millimetres series and is a brilliant use of a subject to capture an image of himself. The idea for the show was to approach the historical theme of self-portraits and to bring it into a contemporary art context. See […]
