Aya Ben Ron
29.04. – 09.09.2012
curator: Galit Eilat
opening: 28.04. 2012 | 7 pm.
In a lyrical journey through the permanent exhibition of the Berlin Museum the show by Aya Ben Ron will refer to the famous poem Un Voyage à Cythère (“A Voyage to Cythera”) by Charles Baudelaire. The last should be read as a thematic reversal of Antoine Watteaus three paintings Pèlerinage à l’île de Cythère („Embarkation to Cythera“). Beside numerous texts and sound installations ten artworks will be integrated into the permanent exhibition. They are responding to certain items on display, but also on historic events at the Charité in Berlin as a hospital, a university and a museum. The main intention is to show human experience in its wholeness, wherefore the artist reintegrates/reintroduces missing, psychological, emotional and social aspects to the existing narratives.
