Lupus Viator

The project Lupus Viator (latin: wolf walking) began as a series of monumental painted installations. Later it continued to evolve over a period of 7 years. It travelled to 7 different countries worldwide. Taking into consideration its extensive duration, as well as its territorial movements, from country to country, Lupus Viator can be understood almost like a mythical pilgrimage, which covers the trails and places, where wolves have formerly roamed in abundance, before the species has widely become extinct.
For the Centro Cultural de España, AECID (Lima, Peru), Darya von Berner collaborated with a group of local artists, called the Aguaitones.

On the occasion of the Climate Change Conference @cop25_madrid from December 2 to 13, 2019, artists explore the impact of climate change. Ten years ago, in 2009, Darya von Berner created in Madrid “Universal Cloud Flag” a white flag of minute water drops, like the clouds that nourish and sustain life. Shortly after she carried out this idea that she patented, manufactured, and installed it in front of The Peace Palace in The Hague in 2012. The cloud flag was emitted from the top of a steel mast, using fog pressure to spray water in suspension into the atmosphere.

Unique Multiples @unique.multiples is pleased to present The Last Illusion, a new sculptural edition made from one kilo of pure gold by Madrid-based conceptual artist Darya von Berner. This holographic, mixed media work features a cast sculpture of golden shit displayed within a custom holographic vitrine, which through its own visual alchemy renders the precious heavy metal into a hovering, ghostly apparition.

Following in the tradition of â€˜Ă©pater le bourgeois,’ or abject works of art such as Maurizio Cattelan’s America (2016), an 18-karat gold toilet, and Piero Manzoni’s seminal work Artist’s Shit (1961), The Last Illusion continues this line of inquiry, questioning how the value of art is derived, and juxtaposing the symbolic with the tangible, the abstract with the real.
