Tropicana 404

SomoS Art House, Berlin

January 2015

 

Tropicana 404 presents a group show featuring artists that peel away the veneer of sublime tropicalia to reveal the uncanny nature of a purely symbolic paradise. By juxtaposing components of leisure, holiday, and celebration with indications of avarice and artifice these artists manage to achieve an unsettling balance of sensation and cynicism. Mimicry and deception permeate these works, exposing the illusive nature of paradise and the melancholy disquietude that this realization generates.

Saturation and Decay

SomoS Art House, Berlin

November 2014

SomoS presents its Fall group show Saturation and Decay which focuses on the mechanics of temporality and the relativity of value. The artists are united by their approach to the poetics of discarded material desire and relics from collective memory, impermanence, and the broken. Their works become a source of sombre reflection and encourage a reexamination of nostalgia. Trash – symbolic of a saturated culture – emerges as a language of composition, resulting in an eerie amalgamation of past, present, and future. 

 

Participating Artists:

Madeline Stillwell - Sculpture

Willi Tomes - Painting/Installation

My Paper Sunglasses

SomoS Art House, Berlin

August 2014

 

In this cooperation, the international “My Paper Sunglasses” exhibition project came to Berlin for its fifth installment after four acclaimed exhibitions across South America. Creative director and curator Otavio Santiago invited artists from his current home in Berlin along with those from his former home in Brazil to express their artistic perspective on cutout paper sunglasses offering a glimpse into the unique identities of these artists while seriously complicating the boundaries between art, portraiture, and fashion. The invited artist’s sunglasses artworks were presented alongside their self-portraits wearing them. A performance by Lisa Stertz and an editorial fashion spread by WOW Berlin Mag, both inspired by the project, were presented for the first time on the opening night.

Alter Angle 1º

SomoS Art House, Berlin

January 2014

 

SomoS placed the spotlight on a selection of artworks that address the themes of identity, fashion and self-representation, complemented by finessed design pieces that exemplify the vibrancy of self-expression that is characteristic of Berlin’s creative underground, its sexual outsiders and extreme club culture; exposing some shared roots and interests.

 

These artists invite us to think of fashion and self presentation in a radically different way, far removed from consumerism and instead more connected to the realization of deeply personal, social, psychological and sexual needs.

Quicklook 001

SomoS Art House, Berlin

April 2013

 

A special art presentation by Berlin-based artist Santiago Taccetti during Berlin Gallery Weekend 2013.

 

Experimenting across multiple mediums, Taccetti playfully pushes the boundaries of the materials he works with, using tar and enamel in innovative ways to capture the tension between dynamism and stasis. Taccetti places these (in)animated works in a site-specific installation that responds to the environment of the original 1920s Kaffeehaus turned exhibition hall. 

 

Santiago Taccetti, born in 1976 in Argentina, lives and work in Berlin.

Things that make you go oooohhh

April 2013

Das Gift

 

Things That Make You Go Ooohhh is a group exhibition that focuses on the fetishization of objects and materials. In an art world that seems at times to relish over-intellectualization, this exhibition shows the pure enjoyment materiality can give us through intuitive explorations of tactility and sensory decadence.
