Chinese and Asian Art in Berlin

 Opening reception  at the kunst. licht Gallery Berlin

kunst. licht Gallery Berlin is the first in Berlin to specialize in Chinese/Asian as well as Western photography. Among the artists are well-known positions such as Vivian Maier, Lu Yuanmin and Michel Comte.

“What a wonderful world” shows the work of four young upcoming Chinese artists who all share the common experience of studying and working in Germany. While some engage with the form of installation, others have interdisciplinary concepts - much like their cultural influence from the two continents.

Opening of the Exhibition "What a Wonderful World"

 Artist Lian Zhiping (educated in Hangzhou and Berlin) is concerned with moments of loss and transition. In her series “Aground” she reveals dreams, anxieties and fantasies from a female perspective and in “Archive from 1983” she deals with political punishment. She lives and works in Taiwan, Berlin and Xiamen.

The second female perspective in this exhibition is offered by Yingji (*1989, educated in Beijing and Munich). The stark black and white series “End of Spring” (re-) connects the viewer with her essential emotions. The photographs are reminiscent of a movie or dream sequences. The artist divides her time between Munich and Shanghai.

During Gallery Weekend kunst.licht Gallery displays “Shanghai meets Chicago, Chicago meets Shanghai” (opening April 25, 2015).
Opening hours: Wednesday - Friday 2-8 p.m., Saturday – Sunday 12-6 p.m. and by appointment
