UFOs sind eines der aussergewöhnlichsten und befremdlichsten Phänomene überhaupt. 

Der Ursprung der unzähligen unidentifierten Objekte, die bis heute in der Erdathmospäre und auch den Ozeanen wahrgenommen worden sind ist weiterhin unklar. 

Zahlreiche Hypothesen wurden entwickelt, darunter die Hypothese der extraterrestrischen Herkunft.

Neben den von Sichtungen durch Militär (Pilotenaufzeichnungen, Radarüberwachung etc.) existieren mittlerweile tausende historische und zeitgenössische Berichte ziviler Zeugen, die nicht einfach als ‚kollektiver Wahn‘ beiseite gewischt werden können. 

Ende 2017 berichtete die New York Times nüchtern und sachlich über das UFO Phänomen und dessen Untersuchung durch das US Militär und durchbrach damit ein von den Mainstream Medien hartnäckig kultiviertes Tabu.

Aktuell gibt es auch in den Mainstream Medien eine wahre Flut von Artikeln zu dem in Kürze erwarteten Pentagon Bericht zur UFO Forschungstätigkeit der USA.

Barics und Schäpel studierten dieses Phänomen schon vor dem aktuellen ‚Medien-Hype‘ und nähern sich ihm künstlerisch aus zwei unterschiedlichen Perspektiven.

In ihren Werken geben sie diesem UFO-Phänomen eine Präsenz im Ausstellungsraum – ohne aber allzu einfache Antworten zu bieten.

Strange Symphony

Photographs by Jorge Albella

The limitless variety of plants, animals and microorganisms that make up the forest, give rise to a whole cosmos in which – despite its complexity – everything works in harmony.

The different species of trees also interact by helping each other, sending nutrients, water, carbon and even signals, through the subsoil, where fungal threads connect the roots of the trees, (as Suzanne Simard, professor of Forest Ecology at the University of British Columbia, has discovered after decades of studies.)

The harmony of this cosmos of living beings, is the wheel that continues since millions of years, in which each creature has its own function, taking part as a member of a great band that originates the eternal symphony.

For most human beings who live in cities or modern areas, where the struggle for production and survival (within our cultural canons) is inevitable, this “symphony” sounds strange, because any natural factor from any organism, or from the human beings themselves that alters our habitat “competing” for resources, feels like an “invasion” to fight, or a conflict which could easily bring us into chaos.

Perhaps after enjoying the beauty of the strange symphony of the forest, for its colors, its forms, its immensity, humans should also learn a little from it, if we want that our habitat will continue in harmony and for a long time.

After many years living in Berlin, I had the wonderful possibility to take some train and scape to different forests around Brandenburg. It’s a perfect place to have endless walks by paths, meditating, observing the dark deepness of the forest and listening to the sounds of the nature.


 

Jorge Albella is a self-taught photographer from Madrid. Since adolescence he has been involved with photography, however after viewing “Invisible Man” by Jeff Wall in 2001, he decided to immerse himself deeper into his photographic journey. He moved to Berlin, where he currently resides.

His photography explores urban landscapes and the social transformations that occur within those areas.
Additional works include a visual experiment conceptualising “travelling and borders” (Behind the Window, 2003 – 2013), as well as aspects of nature, paths and solitude (Camina en silencio, no mires atrás, 2011 – 2013).

Tabea Krah + Viola da Gamba

To be seen in Premarts gallery from 10.-26.02.2021 is the violin maker and musician Tabea Krah with her work on a viola da gamba.

Tabea Krah lives and works in Kreuzberg, Oppelner Straße 34 for almost 10 years now and is concentrating in repairing, restoring and building instruments. The last one she finished to create was a Swedish Nyckelharpa (Moraharpa).

To get her mind free and having more space for her creativity, Tabea loves to work in the rooms of Premarts that are flexible in their usings and empty in the beginning when slowly slowly the art could develop. Here she is not only working on the sound but also playing the instruments.

  

The next concert is in preparation. When Corona regulations will allow it, she will perform soon with her colleague Christian Müller at the trumpet, playing cello and guitar herself.
