Kalashnikovv Galerie Berlin is pleased to present Product of Praxis, a group show exhibiting artists Emanuel Bernstone, Lena von Gödeke, and Marco Reichert, and curated by Emma McKee. The exhibition opens on March 18, 2017, with the artists attending. The gallery will host a reception on March 18 from 6 – 9 pm.
Product of Praxis will feature paintings, multi-media drawings, sculpture and installation by the artists. The artworks are transformed by specifically designed material, through both natural and technological developments. Marco Reichert and Emanuel Bernstone’s re-evaluation of traditional painting methods paired with Lena Von Godeke’s multi-medium pieces conjures up varied thoughts. Their works are collectively disconcerting, because they are so closely linked to the materials employed.
In this exhibition underlines each artists intricate process of practice. Specifically, how each artist combines personal reference with a marked change in physical form. The artists strategically deal with material, all of these elements form an impressive environment.

Emanuel Bernstone (Born 1973 in Karlskrona, Sweden) creates a complexity through multiple layers of space. His works thematically illustrate the transition between exterior and interior through his use of raw material, intentional with paint, but organic with exposed canvas. these elements form a schematic scene with gures moving through gradient.
Marco Reichert (Born 1979 in Berlin, Germany) utilizes painting machines, which have recently become an important part of his process. Each machine is line-based, following geometric rules in an open system, where Reichert is able to interact and have continuous access to the whole piece. The structures these machines form are mere additions to his already treated canvas. Reichert’s work portends to explore between the boundless and the archetypal.
Lena von Gödeke’s (Born 1983 in Duisburg, Germany) work consists of pattern and structures translated in an aesthetic process of fragile paper cuts, sculptures and sand. She combines personal references with the abstract language of fragility. Her work forgoes uniform style or specific medium, and experiments with an alternating range of technique. The common ground of her diverse body of work reflects the value of material in a disposable society as well as on the chances and use of modern technologies such as her CGI software, 3D-Scan or Virtual Reality.
