Blog post by Melissa Steckbauer – in Berlin; Wednesday, May 29, 2013.

Sabine Dehnel is crafty. Her practice is born in paint and then shifts into installation, sculpture, and photography. It oscillates between so many mediums that it feels more cinematic than artistic. A single painting is realized and then used as the basis for an installation which is then hand preened, cut and formed…[read on…]

A Breed Apart, a Breed Asunder at Klemm’s

Ulrich Gebert, A Breed Apart (2012)

Article by Melissa Steckbauer – in Berlin; Saturday, Feb. 18, 2012.
