The Andreas Binder gallery in Munchen, Germany, is showing an exhibition of works by the artist Tina Berning. In her latest series, she investigates the connections between conditioned aesthetics and individual self-determination. Captured on found paper, Berning liberates what is locked inside the frozen masks of the lifestyle and consciousness industry. She creates both a subjective and critical view of the human body, its shortcomings, and its basic affinity for beauty. Streaks of color are laid over fine outlines, bodies fall, spots and spaces overlay the transparent characters. The exhibition runs between January 23rd and March 7th.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
