The Unfinished Symphony group exhibition is on at Berlin’s Gillmeier Rech, opening July 1 and running to July 30.
Curated by Vivien Trommer, the show features work by Mariechen Danz, Charlotte Dualé, Olga Pedan, Andrzej Steinbach, and K-Hole‘s Dena Yago and comes accompanied by a short description in German on the FB event page.
A rough translation of the text suggests the exhibition explores the principle of the ‘unfinished’ in contemporary art, where since the turn of the 20th century the idea of the open work —in which the object is only complete upon its perception by its audience —now prevails.
Referencing Juliane Rebentisch’s subject-object distinctions in installation art and speculative realist philosopher Quentin Meillassoux’s correlationism between artwork and reflective subject, Unfinished Symphony expands on these ideas and presents works that appear as complex singular yet interrelated object arrangements with an internal logic that together become a form of modern symphony.
