In the final installment of this series, Bernard has deconstructed the final paintings in a journey that reflects the relation of the gates to present day Berlin. The original customs wall, while broken in half as Berlin was divided in two for many years, takes form again in the topography of the city as it rebuilds itself. The specific gates are still present in the names of subway stations and city squares, but only in an abstracted form. The final paintings in this series have deconstructed the process of combining the mediums of photography and painting into abstracted compositions that place the photographs less and less in a conventional viewpoint.

The Gates of Perception is a series of paintings that combine one photograph transferred to canvas and acrylic paint. The series portrays the gates of the Berlin Customs Wall, which existed from 1737 to 1860, with a combination of historical and present day photographs, spanning the city of Berlin from the end of the 19th century to the present day. The gates of the Customs Wall were named after the cities one would travel to when leaving Berlin, in a very outward looking way, and to this day still define the city.

Öffnungszeiten: Mi- Sa 13:00 -19:00 h

Featuring 13 chromogenic prints including one diptych , True South offers a glimpse into the artist’s extensive travels. True south, defined as the direction towards the southern end of the axis about which the earth rotates, is more poetically described by the artist as “the direction towards the other side…and the eternity of an instant” as well as a “state of mind.” The photographic images in this exhibition evoke Ten Hoever ‘s innate ability to discover and capture on film a hidden secret or story within a place he dwells. This gift comes from his patience and openness to experience on a deeper level the people and atmosphere of the places he encounters. For Ten Hoever, travel is not defined by the destination but rather the journey that he allows to unfold. Whether in Taos, Cartagena, Pueblo Garzon, the Cyclades or Cape de Creus, the artist approaches the land and its inhabitants with a striking sensitivity rare in today’s world.
