Carla Bertone and Gonzalo Reyes Araos
Exhibition at Pavillion am Milchhof, 1st - 8th September 2017
Pavillon am Milchhof presents Different Similarities, an exhibition hosting the work of the Berlin based artists Carla Bertone and Gonzalo Reyes Araos.
Both artists, interested in color and geometrical configurations, raise questions about the categories of perception and its relationship with the real-virtual surrounding space. This idea is manifestly reinforced by the set up of the exhibition that highlights the architectural transparency and symmetry of the Pavillon.
Bertone’s work “Colour Timeline series” challenges the color-perceptual capability trying to find out how many shades it is possible to find between two hues. These works stand not only for the subtleness and accuracy of her performance as a painter but for the philosophical implications regarding to the dichotomy argument (Zeno’s Paradox) in which the distance between two points might be infinite.
In a harmonic opposition, Reyes Araos’ work “RGBA-ABGR (0.8)” turns the Pavillion’s glass window into two augmented “pixels” by filtering the light of the ambiance through RGB colors. Red, green, and blue are the three colors constituting the pixels that structure digital screens; nowadays, the reality that, most the time we are staring at. This operates as a representation of the filter of our perception, coming up through this ubiquitous contemporary form of communication.
