Dingfest (Pinning Things Down)
Schallenberg

Mirko Schallenberg’s constructions made of everyday objects could also look completely different, but only in the manner he has arranged them do they maintain their meticulously worked-out balance, like a jester walking on a tightrope stretched between two facades. Mirko Schallenberg, just like the jester, sometimes chooses his motifs and even more often the titles with a pun, but among these pictures we see essential and highly complex painting. Yet they present themselves with lightness and without grand gestures.

The depiction of nature’s arbitrariness, the fatigue of the material, and the wear and tear caused by daily use, which the artist consciously depicts down to the smallest detail, produces an illusion of nature – though the viewer does not become aware of this. (Sophie Gerlach)


eBook on the occasion of the solo exhibition »Dingfest« from 18 November 2013 to 15 January 2014, Gallery Friedmann-Hahn, Berlin. The exhibition can be visited virtual.
