Opening: 13.September, 2023, 7pm

In the exhibition “Chair-2-Chair. Contemporary positions on portraiture” artists are taking on the theme of portraits – each in their own way – for Berlin Art Week 2023. A portrait represents more than its sitter, and often more than its maker. Created by artists looking for honesty in their own times, there is no clear definition of what makes a portrait a portrait. The face can be a window to history or a window to the soul. A facade to hide behind. The portraits presented by 2chairs artists are classical, abstract, wearable, reduced to circles and intersecting lines, pieced together on textiles, surreally stretched to new dimensions, reduced to their bare bones, or have become emotions with no human features.

The 2chairs-Collective e.V. was founded in 2023. It represents international, Berlin-based artists who were successful in another career and later made art their full-time occupation. Some members still sit professionally on two chairs, others bounce back and forth between them. 2chairs artspace are: Lena Ash, Jac Carley, Scott Culley, Camila Piana, Sabine Kontny, Stefano Loiacono, Bernd Reichert, Josephine Riemann, Sarah Schultz, Sandra Stops, Jungwen Yao.
