XENIA FINK - TOO CLOSE TO HOME
Show at Morgen Contemporary, January 26-March 09, 2013
Opening: January 25, 2013 | 7:00 p.m. | Ackerstr. 162, Berlin
Introduction by Julika Nehb, art historian, Berlin.
The ink drawings by Xenia Fink seduce the viewer with their clear technical execution and their nostalgic, perplexingly surreal dreamworlds, which are enriched with allusive quotations. Reduction, omission and deconstruction are the essential formal features in these tender, concretely illustrative drawings from the series of works entitled Too Close to Home. The treatment of themes remains fragmentary, in the style of a postmodern narrative. They deal with family, childhood, love and loneliness, with interpersonal and erotic relationships. And with the identity of modern women. The ambivalence of closeness and distance, in both form and content, corresponds to the constant uncertainty of human existence.
