Artist(s) Biographies:

The powerful graphite and pastel drawings, and woodcuts by the British artist Emma Stibbon traverse inner-city topographies as well as topographies that are remote and largely untouched by human hands. In this Berlin cycle, the artist investigates the utopian dimension of Modernist avant-garde buildings and totalitarian architectural experiments in the German capital, a metropolis that is defined by its history like no other, by the discontinuity of becoming and falling away.  Relics of constructions from the time of the German Emperor, the Weimar Republic, Nazism and the post-war period: the two divergent halves of the city blend into the functional market economy architecture of the contemporary capital.  Through these works, Stibbon portrays this urban space as a reflection of the past and a place where the future can be projected.
