Dennis Rudolph will be at BARK with ARTIFICIAL_GODS_Eurydike Exhibition. The gallery space of the BARK BERLIN GALLERY is closed off. We only see the exhibition through the large windows. Four oil paintings, abstract at first glance, hang in the middle of the room in front of a photo wallpaper. The floor is covered with sand. The wallpaper shows the landscape of California City in the Mojave Desert, recreated in the Game Engine Unity. Here the eternal blue sky of the Unity 3D default setting shines. Huge in the distance above the empty road network of this failed utopia of a pensioner's paradise are a few of the "Artificial Gods" I painted in VR. Via a QR code on the window, we can install an augmented reality app on our mobile phones. The app reacts to the oil paintings. They are the markers for the digitally 3D painted figure of Eurydike that now emerges from the canvases in monumental "original size". Her hologram explodes the gallery space and penetrates through the window to the inner courtyard and the street. We now see that the template for the images are individual details of this figure. And the shadow on the landscape of the photo wallpaper, which falls into the picture from outside, must be Eurydike's shadow itself. So this photo wallpaper is a screenshot from beyond the virtual world of the computer and the oil paintings are not abstract but Eurydike's pixels made flesh. To be seen between 13.02.2021 and 25.02.2021.
