Video: Galerie Meerrettich at Berlin Biennial

by Lucile Desamory, Lucy Mckenzie and Birgit Megerle on 25 March 2006

SHOWstudio captured three independent highlights from the opening weekend of events in and around the 4th Berlin Biennial. Occupying its own historic position next to the Volksbuhne –one of the main east Berlin early 20th Century theatres–is Galerie Meerrettich run by artist Josef Strau. Housed in a small pavilion set next to the concert hall in a space that was once its ticket hall the exhibition programme is produced within the special conditions of the building as object, with its special architectural limitations. An intriguing mise-en-scene of beautiful two-dimensional painted characters was on show, entitled Jigsaw (jeu de societe) by artists Lucile Desamory, Lucy Mckenzie and Birgit Megerle.
