October 26 – December 21, 2007
Opening: October 25, 2007

Andreas Grimm Munich is pleased to present the second solo exhibition of Dasha Shishkin on the 25th of October from 7 pm-9 pm.

The Russian born artist who has been living in New York since 1993 loves to play with contrasts. Her work contains large-sized drawings, which picture the theatrum mundi as a gruesomely beautiful spectacle in dazzling colors as well as small-sized drawings. Those contrasts are ambiguous; In Shishkin’s work everything can turn into its opposite at anytime, the harmless becomes the grotesque or the brutal turns into the comical. In doing so she succeeds in dealing with serious topics like violence, eros, or death with a humorous easiness and that causes the viewer to smirk over and over again.

The Title of Dasha Shishkin’s new exhibition at Andreas Grimm: “Love Sick” names exactly the state between sky-high cheering and being deeply grieved, a condition which all (sorrowful) lovers know too well. Some of her new works, which are iridescent chromatic drawings on canvas, use the interior as a connecting element, which functions as a formal frame and indicates potential stories. More important for the cohesion of the pieces is the attitude that underlies the body of work. It speaks of the eventuality of finding beauty in the alleged ugly, it is the visual angle of those who have just fallen in love, who see everything in shimmering colors before their fortune fades and the world occurs in sulky gray. Certain after that is only the knowledge that everything could or will be different. This does not only correspond to the experience of those who are “love-sick”, it also holds true for Dasha Shishkin herself, who does not see her pictorial results as definite truths but more as a procedural state because in the end everything could be completely different.
