Upcoming Exhibition “Bad Intentions”

Dear followers, friends and customers,

I am happy to share the news with you that I will be part of the exhibition “Bad Intentions” at Circle 1 gallery in Berlin, opening November 17. You are all invited to attend and spread the news!

This is a unique opportunity for me to bring my plant inspired art to a new audience. I will be showing ink drawings of my “Sigilla Magica”¬†and illustrations supported, by an installation with different magical herbs from my garden and surroundings.

Important (!) Due to the exhibition preparations now going into its last and hot phase, I will not be able to process new shop orders until then. All orders placed now or later, will be shipped in the week following the 20th of November.

……………………………………………………

Below a quote from the introduction text, by curator Avi Pitchon:

‚ÄúBad Intentions‚ÄĚ seeks to modestly contribute a tiny voice to hopefully echo into a massive abyss. The title is a reference to the good intentions of ‚Äėartivism‚Äô, and where they lead to: the disappearance of both art and activism. The exhibition does so by staging an absurd tear between art and artist, in the hope that a gaze into the tear might enable a distinction between art and politics. The artists selected for this group exhibition are Jewish-Israeli, Palestinian-Israeli, Jewish, Palestinian and German. However, no artwork in this exhibition forms an explicit mirroring of any social or political tensions formed within the above ethnic/national triangle. The artwork does not ‚Äėspeak for itself‚Äô; it simply speaks by itself. ‚ÄúBad Intentions‚ÄĚ intentionally ignores the background and circumstance of the artist, in order to destabilise anything that is expected of such a grouping of artists, because all of those expectations are not only tired cliches, they also silence the speech of art. ‚ÄúBad Intentions‚ÄĚ is thus an invitation for the viewer to empower themselves by placing the weight and responsibility of attention on them; by not providing crutches of meaning.

Bad Intentions

Artists: Eitan Ben Moshe, Wiebke Rost, Georgia Kuhn, Tamy Ben-Tor & Miki Carmi, Merav Kamel & Halil Balabin, Mika Rottenberg, Osama Zatar, Anat Ben David, Neta Dror and Keren Cytter

Curated by Avi Pitchon and Alona Harpaz

Mandrake Roots and Art

This project began earlier in 2016, when parting with a few homegrown live mandrake roots and sending them to new homes. Part of the deal for the new owner was to commission a portrait of the very root they were to receive.

Each root is drawn with ink and quill on stained paper. Attention is paid to the peculiar shape and features of each root. The result are detailed portraits, which are not only unique pieces of fine art but which also give the owner a reference, when the roots are planted back into soil.

Examples of roots that have left my own mandrake family and joined new homes:

Available roots (prices including hand-drawn art, excluding shipping):

New Plant Riddle

New Plant Riddle

Tonight I share this new artwork with you, which is again a riddle. The game is as usual: guess the plant depicted and leave a comment with your suggestion!¬†If you have been following my recent postings on my new herbalism blog you will easily find the plant in question. A hint: it has to do with autumn. ūüėČ

Art Prints, small edition

I’m sorry if you have been browsing the Teufelskunst website and found that most of the items listed here are sold out. This is because I have been working mainly on commissions since some months and had little or no time to add new ready-made items. However, there are still some incense blends as well as amulets available and of course the herbal supply¬†continues.

But there is also a sign of new things to come. Find added NEW a small color print edition of my plant “soul-paintings”:

The original paintings are done with plant juices and blood. The images are ca. 110 x 150 mm, the paper format is A5. Protected inside simple black carton and envelope. Available are 10 copies of each. Nice price for all three: 13 Euro + shipping!

NOTE: I am also preparing an offer for mounted and signed prints of the ‚ÄúRegina Amandrakina‚ÄĚ art. The passe-partouts for these measure 400 x 300 mm and the prints themselves will be ca 305 x 230 mm. Estimated pricing: 39 Euro + shipping

I’m also working on¬†more new items¬†to offer here the coming months! More news tba soon…
