Olydo Berlin 2016: 80 years of the Olympic Village, Elstal.

July 19th – August 26th Deutsche Kreditbank AG, Berlin.

About the Project
In September 2015, Rogue artists Margaret Cahill and David Gledhill, together with Wolf Bertram Becker and Peter Lewis, were invited to visit the site of the 1936 Berlin Olympic Village by its current owner, DKB Stiftung in Berlin, and Palis Advisory GmbH, who initiated the project.
The artists have spent the past 8 months producing work in response to the site for an exhibition at Deutsche Kreditbank’s headquarters in Berlin. The exhibition will encompass painting, printmaking, collage, video and 3D pieces and will transfer to the refurbished gymnasium at the Olympic Village itself in September.
‘Curse of the laughing hand’ is a group show proposed by artist Brian Mountford. It is a show which seeks to bring together a humorous and playful approach towards art & painting.
The works on show here and the ideas associated with them are assorted, ranging from impromptu slapstick to much more complex works that involve a conscientious accumulation of historical and art related ideas.
All of the works in the show however, employ creative strategies in their portrayal of a subject as well as in the different ways they distort the perspectives through which they look at it. Like a joke, a piece of art demands an audience to be significant.
