Two friends of Latitudes are opening their own galleries in Berlin: Feinkost and Maribel López Gallery.
Feinkost opened at the end of September with a show with work by the bulgarian artists Luchezar Boyadjiev. Tomorrow they will inaugurate their second show titled 'The Art World' with works by Ad Reinhardt, Alan Phelan, Balthasar Burkhard, Ben Gavin, Charles Gute, Christian Jankowski, IRWIN, Luchezar Boyadjiev, Matthieu Laurette, Pablo Helguera, Rainer Ganahl, REP Group, SOSka Group, et al.
On December 15th, Maribel López Gallery will open her space with the show 'Game Over Expanded' by Barcelona-based artist Francesc Ruiz.
"Francesc Ruiz (Barcelona, 1971) deploys an array of ‘possible’ fictions, laden with irony and bordering on delirium, which encompass multiple horizons of escaping from and re-inventing reality. His ink drawings alternate with other media, such as installations of black-and-white photocopies glued to the wall, videos and sculptures.On this occasion, in a new series of drawings and an installation, Francesc Ruiz tackles one of his recurring themes—his interest in places of consumption. These spaces enable him to develop narrative exercises charged with unexpected potential for action."
Francesc Ruiz was present at such recent exhibitions as Existencias, MUSAC, León (2007); Où? Scènes du Sud: Espagne, Italie, Portugal, Carrée d’Art – Musée d’art contemporain, Nîmes (2007), Registros y hábitos. Máquina de tiempo/imágenes de espacio, Fundació Antoni Tàpies, Barcelona and CGAC, Santiago de Compostela (2006).
