Exhibition in the context of mikromusik festival
The exhibition Lines and Traces at the daadgalerie presents a selection of installations by British sound artist Max Eastley, who combines kinetic sculpture and sound into consistently surprising unique forms. The work of the artist and musician born in Great Britain in 1944 (2017 ABP guest) is created primarily in the interplay between artistic intervention and nature, not in the sense of imitating nature but of imagining and inventing it. Envisioned contours of a landscape or motion patterns of fictitious insects are divided into smaller details and multiplied in a variety of ways; the variations are the result of slight deviations in the attempt at repetition. Patterns and rhythms are produced whose richly detailed characteristics can be perceived by the eyes and ears in meditative contemplation. In the two installations, movement, drawing, and sound are placed in nonlinear relationships to one another: continuity and discontinuity, periodicity, and irregularity are directly linked. The drawings and paintings of Max Eastley, presented in this solo exhibition for the first time, recall studies of movement, form, and color. The drawings are taken from sketchbooks Max Eastley has made since the 1960s.

The exhibition kicks off the mikromusik festival of the DAAD Artists-in-Berlin Program, held from August 22–27, 2017 at various locations in Kreuzberg and Neukölln.

Opening on August 10, 2017 at 7 pm.
