ZWEIDREI is a multidisciplinary group of collaborators who deal with media-architecture and design, hosting various projects and collaborations. To coincide with abc art berlin contemporary, Zwei Drei demonstrated their capacity to act as producers of a gallery show and an online continuation of the curated exhibition—“D.” The show has been developed by Adriana Blidaru, Anna Frost, Ché Zara Blomfield, Elena Gilbert and James Michael Shaeffer, Jr. “D” explored the evolution of a conventional group show into a performative venture by featuring a range of artists working in different mediums, touching on topics such as process, transformation and advancement, examined through assemblages, ensembles and tableaux. Brent Wadden and Michiel Ceulers presented their intrinsic and frenzied approach to installation and painting, respectively, which is contrasted with the digital practice followed by Petra Cortright’s digital paintings and Harm Van Den Dorpel‘s Plexiglas sculptures. Objects were transformed in a new process of assemblage under the direction of Kate Steciw and Aleksandra Domanović. In line with the themes of advancement and transformation, the show continues online through a specially created website by artist Harm van den Dorpel – The website provides documentation of the exhibited artist’s works in a different setting, specifically their studios. This online ‘follow-up” of the show aims to provide an extra platform—alongside an exhibition catalogue— for viewers to critically engage with the works selected for this group show.
