Eeva Karhu – While unseen

Duration: 9 March – 21 April, 2012
Address: Bergstr. 22, 10115 Berlin – Mitte

Gallery TAIK is delighted to present the first solo exhibition with the Finnish artist Eeva Karhu in Berlin. The exhibition While unseen presents works from her series Impressio – Path, in which the artist compiles a period of time by accumulating the captured light and color. Reception will be held with the artist on Thursday, March 8, 2012

Eeva Karhu´s photographs create conceptual bridges that connect one day to another by collecting her patterns of movement as she walks from her home each morning: A visual diary that layers thirty images upon one another to form one month. Their combination composes a luminescent picture that feels itself resting somewhere between the impressionist paintings of Monet and Turner.

Ida Pimenoff – A Shadow at the Edge of Every Moment of the Day

Exhibition: January 27 – March 3, 2012
Address: Bergstr. 22, 10115 Berlin - Mitte


Gallery TAIK is delighted to present the first solo exhibition of Finnish artist Ida Pimenoff in Berlin. The exhibition A Shadow at the Edge of Every Moment of the Day presents works of the correspondent series from 2005–2011 that was recently published in Pimenoff´s first monograph by Kehrer.

The work of Ida Pimenoff is characterized by the sensitive inquiry of very personal feelings such as losing and longing. In her photographs the artist creates sublime sceneries that play with the ambiguity of emotions adhered in between imagination and reality. A dreamlike atmosphere emanates from Pimenoff´s works depicting intimate portraits, brumous landscapes and close-ups of commonplaces. These umbral silhouettes and reflections are arranged in strong contrasts of light and dark.
