Rachel Youn bei I’m a Captain
Welcome to the Plant Disco. Bathed in colorful light, plastic plants vibrate on discarded massage devices. For her “Revival” exhibition at Soy Capitán , Rachel Youn has repurposed objects and perhaps found a much better purpose for them. Somewhere between hedonism and collision, beauty and junk product, Youn’s work reveals an unexpected meaning.
WHEN: Rachel Youn’s Revival exhibition runs Friday, April 29 through June 25.
WHERE: Soy Capitán , Prinzessinnenstrasse 29, 10969 Berlin.
Jagoda Bednarsky & Felix Kultau bei Grisebach
Gin fizz and woody smells, cucumber slices on the eyes – actually sounds relaxed. But with Jagoda Bednarsky and Felix Kultau, the feel-good atmosphere is saturated with the uncanny. Her duo show « Nachtstücke » at Grisebach is a cooperation with the Frankfurt gallery Philipp Pflug Contemporary . There the soda capsules have been used up, the incense sticks have burned down and « Wellness » is on its head. She tries to locate longings in the so-called present.
WHEN: The exhibition « Nachtstücke » by Jagoda Bednarsky and Felix Kultau opens on Wednesday, April 27, from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. It runs until Friday May 13th.
WHERE: Grisebach , Fasanenstrasse 25, 10719 Berlin.
Adrian Ganea in the Plan B Gallery

Rocco Ruglio-Misurell bei Dzialdov
Remains, casts and impressions are the materials from which Rocco Ruglio-Misurell’s works are made. His exhibition « In Material Worlds » at Dzialdov’s tells of work in the studio – of what has happened, of what is still missing and of what has long since been completed. In shades of pastel and black, soft and hard, familiar yet alien, futuristic but somehow used, Ruglio-Misurell’s objects inhabit the exhibition space as intermediate beings whose history seems present although hidden.
WHEN: The exhibition « In Material Worlds » by Rocco Ruglio-Misurell opens on Thursday, April 28 from 7 p.m. to 10 p.m. It runs until June 5th.
WHERE: Dzialdov, Maybachufer 43, 12047 Berlin.
