A group exhibition curated by Steven Kohlstock.
“Rise Berlin is pleased to present Fantasy Island – a special group exhibition for 48 Stunden Neukölln by international artists Gaelle Boucand, Osman Balkan, Maurice Baker, Ender Suenni and Kurt von Bley curated by Steven Kohlstock. Fantasy Island presents an artistic interpretation of paradise. The places and people depicted have an unreal dreamlike quality and evoke a strong connection
with the past. In a world where the artist is always a guest in their own fantasies they journey along unexpected paths.
The shows central theme is a personal visualisation of the reality of fantasy. The viewers will be guided through a fantastic world where paradise is not always viewed in a positive light. Each artist uses their own experiences to interpret this
world through the mediums of photography, collage and video. All of the artists have worked in Berlin for many years, this city has become their home as well as their own fantasy island.”
