Berlin and Los Angeles-based artist Jonas Wendelin’s first solo exhibition at Dittrich & Schlechtriem, titled ‘Only,’ engages in manufacturing an alternative reality, pursuing futuristic narratives and themes of hope in dystopia. A fictional architectural installation made up of found objects and jarred preserves gives the illusion of a space quickly abandoned in the aftermath of a life-changing event. Using collaboration as a tool to build the exhibition, Wendelin's show also includes the exposed archive of the gallery, a publication compiled and edited by the artist, called ‘The Allusion,’ as well as a series of otherworldly ceramic sculptures. Wendelin walked us through the exhibition, now showing at Dittrich & Schlechtriem until August 29th, 2020.
