Timur Celik: Human Zone
Samstag 16. April 2016, 16 – 19 Uhr
In his paintings, the Berlin artist Timur Celik thematizes the urban climate of Berlin. He investigates the everyday, depicting the city and its zoning: urban transit spaces, subway lines, airports, parking garages, private apartments. Celik also portrays city residents and friends. His images of empty streets at nighttime, executed for the most part in gentle gray tones, are reminiscent of film stills from the French Nouvelle Vague. They document, but also have a decelerating effect. In the seemingly fragmentary scenes of private rooms, individual objects acquire a sense of poetry and simplicity.
The public is depicted in striking, subjective truth, the private exposed to the brightness of the public sphere.
