In collaboration with the Australian Government Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade and the Australian Embassy, Germany, the exhibition "mad love" is part of the Australia-Germany bi-lateral cultural initiative Australia Now 2017, supported by the Australian Government.
The group exhibition mad love provides a contemporary image of current Australian art within the context of Germany and Europe. Held at Arndt Art Agency’s premises in Berlin, the show is curated by leading Australian artist Del Kathryn Barton. Barton's personal selection of prominent Australian visual artists each engage with ideas surrounding instinct, innate urges and the corporeal. Artworks included will consist of paintings, sculpture, mixed media, photography, and works on paper.
“Body as pleasure. Body as machine. Body longing, always longing. Hungry body, filthy body. Body to run. Body to deny. Thinking body. Muscle Body. Body as instrument and song, as instinct towards life. Body light. Body dark. Evolutionary body, dinosaur body. Plastic body. Colour body. BODY as unmitigated surges of light and energy, just briefly, but oh, such, such love……… mad, mad love.”
- Del Kathryn Barton, September 2016
The project will be accompanied by a catalogue
