ONE OF EACH is an exhibition series with two solo presentations in association with a selection of works from a private collection. After showing parts of private collections (Sammlung Hückstädt, Ansammlung Peter Ungeheuer, Sammlung von Foerster) and one public collection, the Daimler Art Collection, we are delighted to present the Berlin based MT Collection. TORSION MIX — ONE OF EACH #6 is both a solo presentation and a group exhibition in which the works function as a basis for conversation, more for complicity than competition.
"Torsion" is the title of a series of works by ALINE SCHWÖRER, in which she experiments with making her own bioplastic to replace other, more environmentally harmful materials. Torsion refers to the state of being twisted, also the twisting of a body organ or part around its own axis. The works presented in the exhibition show ambiguous and hybrid creatures in which flora is merged with fauna to form an ecosystem in their own right.
Also on display are postcards that the artist developed during the pandemic as places she wished to have visited. Found objects are embedded in the postcards, to establish a connection to these places.
"MIX" is not only the title of one of ALEKOS HOFSTETTER coloured pencil drawing but also a reference to his approach of working in which he brings together elements of comic and lettering using various old printing techniques. In his works Hofstetter deals with the constant change in architecture from 1950 to 1980, showing the juxtaposition of iconic, emblematic architecture and strange, alienated landscapes.
With the kind support of ARTBUTLER and ARTLAND.
