Next Thursday, July 16th, BC Gallery in Berlin will be opening a solo show from Axel Void entitled Sehnsucht. The collective name of the new series of paintings and videos by the Miami-based artist comes from the German noun translated as longing, yearning, or craving or in a wider sense a type of “intensely missing” but is more complex than simply those terms. Seeing as the term is used in psychology, it’s certainly appropriate when referenced with Void’s provocative imagery, which features a dark tone which is not surprising to those familiar with his work on the streets.
