Maria Eichhorn

CONCERT: Friday, November 20, 2 pm

Maria Eichhorn is a German artist based in Berlin who has been exhibiting since the late 1980s. Her works often enact a social situation and involve an analysis of institutions. In general, Eichhorn’s works offer an interrogation of how power is distributed and unveil the abstract aspect of economies. “The work of Maria Eichhorn is layered and complex, rich and textured, both literal and metaphysical and often highly poetic and allusive.“1 This exhibition will be the first time Eichhorn’s work has been seen in Vancouver, and the Belkin is presenting two ongoing projects, Prohibited Imports (2003/08 and 2015) and Film Lexicon of Sexual Practices (1999/2005/2008/2014/2015), that are augmented on this occasion with newly commissioned works added to each series.

Erdem Taşdelen

Walter C. Koerner Library
1958 Main Mall

Erdem Taşdelen’s Dear, discloses the most private reflections of the writer while simultaneously challenging the authenticity of these feelings with analytic detachment. The failure to communicate perfectly, displayed publicly and self-deprecatingly in this exhibition, is a paradox we can recognize. Taşdelen’s work focuses on the complexity of self-expression in projects using a range of media. This exhibition is a collaboration between the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery and the Walter C. Koerner Library at The University of British Columbia, and is made possible with the generous support of the Audain Foundation. Art in the Library offers new perspectives on contemporary art by presenting art that questions our current perceptions about the world around us.
