In our original post about the exhibition Niek van der Heijden – Assemblage at the DAD Galerie Berlin we noted that Niek was planning completing his “Living Forum” object during the recent Berlin Gallery Weekend.
He nearly did.
However, a healthy flow of interested and inquisitive visitors meant progress was slower than anticipated.
A situation which means that in the DAD Galerie Berlin one can currently experience not only a partially completed Living Forum, but a partially completed Living Forum comprising two separate, disconnected, entities: one Italian – having been created in Bolzano – and one German, the part created in Berlin.
A disjointed Italo-Germanic forum.
Which is the sort of metaphor you cannot help but adore.
Niek will however bring harmony to the piece – and Europe? – following the end of the Berlin exhibition on May 24th. Until then Niek van der Heijden – Assemblage can be enjoyed and explored at the DAD Galerie, Oranienburger Straße 27, 10117 Berlin.
