DOPPELDENK’s solo exhibition Bullseye is concerned with the roots of Graffiti: inspired by a trip to NYC in the early 90s, the artist duo presents iconic works filled with symbols and stereotypes of the Hip Hop subculture.
Besides prints and canvases in the signature DOPPELDENK style, the show will also include large 3D neon light works. Rollergirls, Breakdancers and MCs invite visitors to revive the Zeitgeist of the era and reflect on the origin of the Street Art phenomenon.
DOPPELDENK (doublethink) is a Leipzig-based artistic collective composed of Marcel Baer and Andreas Glauch.
They work with painting, light sculptures, installations and silk screen prints, and make reference to pop-cultural and political icons.
The concept of DOPPELDENK comes from George Orwell’s dystopian novel, “Nineteen Eighty-Four”, and examines the power of holding two contradicting beliefs in one mind simultaneously. Duo’s strategy is to unlock this idea from implying brain-washing, but to propel new and complex forms of thinking. Marcel and Andreas are also using term
Opening at 7pm on Saturday March 6th.
