Weserhalle and Open White Gallery present new works of painter Inna Levinson, In your face. The exhibition marks the second year that both galleries collaborate together during the 48 Stunden Neukölln festival.
As we watch the world through the screen, the screen gazes back at us. It may notice our fingers sliding frenetically over the surface, navigating a thousand open tabs. Our most human expressions are increasingly experienced digitally; the perception of our surroundings have become distorted in scale. Painter Inna Levinson addresses these phenomena, as well as our behavioural patterns in the digital world, as she translates them into the classic medium of painting. With varying thickness of applied oil, the digital feel of the image collides with the raw haptics of the partly exposed canvas. Open White Gallery and Weserhalle present new mid- and large scale works by Inna Levinson.
Inna Levinson (born 1984 in Lviv, Ukraine) graduated in 2014 with a MFA in Fine Arts from the University of the Arts (UdK) in Berlin. Prior to this, she studied at the Academy of Fine Arts (Avu) and the Academy of Arts, Architecture and Design (VŠUP) in Prague, Czech Republic. Her works have been shown, amongst others, at Circle Culture, Berlin (solo, 2018), Allouche Gallery, New York (2017), Ten Haaf Projects, Amsterdam (solo, 2015), Meetfactory, Prague (2010), as well as in 2008 at the Moscow International Biennale for Young Art. Levinson lives and works in Berlin.se—a juicer, tea pots, fish baskets, a bottle of øl—as well as scenes from daily life, though her rendering of such quotidian material is far from banal.
