Eberhard Berti, Johannes Varotsos, Irene Pierson : Dream of Killing
Brussels Museum, Brussels, Belgium
All art works are derived from a particular situation and consciousness, extracting observations and private histories from the artists' archive of personal experiences, the use of texts or single words to engage the viewer; it symbolizes the artist's optimistic belief in beauty and change, together these elements form within their layering an illusion of architectural dimensionality which never denies its inherent flatness. Through this, it relaxes our impulse for a historically conditioned static viewing of this abstract work. It is not a departure nor an arrival. The artist places provocative and beautifully rendered objects such as animals heads and leather boots; in Dream of Killing, Eberhard Berti entwines technology and art in a complex work touching every aspect of imaginative process of scientific research. All art works are derived from a particular situation and consciousness, extracting observations and private histories from the artists' archive of personal experiences, we find that in the hidden spaces. Consciously or unconsciously, the setting of the image expresses the particular sensitivity of the viewer; the artist fills seemingly simple images with light and air to evoke a sense of purity and serenity, the installation reiterates the performative aspects of the making of the work. The metaphor reveals something deep of the community. The use of lettering as a means of contributing to the atmosphere and playing on perception; the use of pre-recorded soundtracks to accentuate this atmosphere, we are faced with what appears to be a direct transcription of the impossible.
