TIM BEST: BERLIN BOUND
Reception: Saturday, May 20th from 7 to 9 PM
Liliana Bloch Gallery is proud to announce that Tim Best has been accepted into a residency with Das Institut für Alles Möglich in Berlin from November to December 2017! The space is in the Wedding neighborhood of the city, north of Kreuzberg, the artistic heart of the city. It has a storefront with an apartment in back.
As Tim is bound for Berlin, he is bound to Dallas physically, emotionally and financially. The gallery is holding a fundraiser to help Tim overcome the gravity of his finances so that he can take advantage of this opportunity to work on his project FLASH in Berlin.
We will have T-SHIRTS available for pre-sale and at the event. We are offering 8" x 8" unique ARTIST PROOFS of Tim's previous work, printed on museum grade fiber based paper. Tim will also be the subject of a Shibari style bondage performance with Dallas-based Bondage Educator James Nawashi founder of Dallas Kink and Denver Kink.
FLASH will be a collection of photographs that reveal and revive memories of the past using bodies and objects in different locations. It is a realization that the distant memories behind these situations can never be recaptured with photography. In the face of this dystopian reality, Best creates something else entirely revealed by the camera and its flash.
ALL PROCEEDS WILL GO TO ROOM, BOARD AND TRAVEL EXPENCES TO BERLIN.
