||Berlin, 17/02/2014: BERLINARTPROJECTS presents DANIEL HARMS’ second solo exhibition „hold tight“ in Istanbul |
The exhibition “hold tight“, curated by Tarik Ersin Yoleri displays twelve new exhibits by Daniel Harms. Gallery BERLINARTPROJECTS has represented Harms since 2013. The artist was born in Hamburg in 1980 and has been living in Berlin since 2007. His colourful images have titles such as „Aasfresser“ (scavenger) or „Konflikt“ (conflict), banned onto large-format canvases in acrylic and charcoal. Daniel Harms’ collage-like art depicts alienation and connections, his pictures are brave and full of allusions. “Here we have an artist stepping on the throttle. Full speed. A tour de force through various styles of alternative art and rock music,” is how art historian Christoph Tannert (translated by Mason Ellis Murray) puts it. Harms’ work is inspired by comics and characters in children’s books. (or: children) It is radical and full of strong emotions.
A native of Hamburg Daniel Harms is motivated by his personal history and events deeply rooted in his home town of Hamburg. As a trained retail salesman he advanced to being head of department, until he resigned in order to concentrate on his art and music. The last solo exhibition presented by BERLINARTPROJECTS and titled “Redux” was shown in the gallery in Berlin.
