Transfer 2, 2004 – Darya von Berner. Photography .

The photographic series ‘Inversiones’, documents the imposing buildings of Frankfurt’s financial district. They are represented, tilted on their head, in a symbolical attempt, to shake the truth out of them.
Von Berner began this work in 2002, the same year in which the Euro was introduced as the single currency, only ten years after the Maastricht treaty was signed. In 2003, the record year of mortgage loans in Spain, the photo ‘S.O, Banco Bilbao Vizcaya’ was created.

L´Oiseau dans l´espace Remake (Brancusi), 2008 – Darya von Berner . Sculpture: Recycled plastic and wood.

L’Oiseau dans l’espace, or Not, is a replica of the original, wrapped in crocheted recycled plastic.

L’Oiseau dans l’espace, is a series of sculptures by Constantin Brancusi. In 1927 it became the centre of a heated legal debate, redefining the meaning of art. The lawyers had to decide whether it was an ‘original sculpture’ or a metal article. It was not clear whether the ‘Bird’ could be called art, because it looked like nothing anyone had ever seen before.

S. F. Frascos de Gel: Historía De Extinción, 2003 – Darya von Berner. Photography
The analogue photographs, of two shampoo bottles in the shape of two Barbie dolls, wandering solemnly indifferent in distinct environments, like an airport, a mud field, or a greenhouse grove, belong to the Flusser series, which is dedicated to the philosopher Vilém Flusser (1920-1991). Behind these seemingly banal scenarios, hides a thematic tension, which is enhanced by their large format.

The fiction of the world we live in becomes apparent in this consumer product, which doesn’t merely show a picture on its label, but the whole bottle has the shape of the blond doll. The magical image of the container triumphs over the actual product, the shampoo is hidden behind the artificiality of the packaging.
Fictitious images are models of behaviour, regardless whether they are showing something real or not. The distinction between fake, real or artificial, does not exist in this case. They are solidified abstractions, by means of calculation. This is the reality/fiction we live in. The system works through inertia and is based on computer calculations, which often show absurd chance results, finally they take our foundations away and we find ourselves in the abyss.

L´Homme qui marche or Not, 2010 – Darya von Berner. Sculpture. Iron and cassette tape

L’homme qui marche, or Not, is a replica of the original, wrapped in crocheted cassette tape.

In the opinion of art historians, L’homme qui marche is one of the most important works by Giacometti. It is one of the most important works of 20th century Swiss art. With this work Giacometti turned to naturalism once more, which in 1935 eventually led to his expulsion from the Parisian Surrealists.

In Love With Unreality, 2009 by Darya von Berner
6,5 x 3 x 0,4 cm
12 Metro tickets
Edition 195

In Love With Unreality, is a mini artist’s book in the format of the old Madrid Metro ticket that takes its title from a phrase in the poem Coney Island of Mind by Ferlinghetti.
The twelve sentences of which it is composed, can be read when shuffling the twelve tickets.
By means of the printing of the poems on the tickets, a metaphor of the trip and the literature was established.
The magnetic strip of those notes meant at the time a revolutionary technological change in Metro de Madrid introducing the digital era. #artistbook #metrodemadrid #centenariometro #metro #madrid #art #contemporaryart #ferlinghetti #daryavonberner

The illumination of Manfred Voss (Guido Petzold) is a perfect one for this Wagnerian staging of an irreversible moral crisis. #teatroreal #madrid @joan_matabosch

EL FENÓMENO es lo que sucede con toda su complejidad y nos permite saber algo con certeza.

LO VIRTUAL es lo que sucede de forma reducida y desprovisto de la mayoría de sus atributos, nos asombra, pero no nos da certeza.

ESTA PEQUEÑA NUBE es un fenómeno real en el Bar Cock de Madrid, está compuesta de gotas microscópicas suspendidas en la ATMÓSFERA.

Mi mano mueve el ABANICO con certeza.

EL SONIDO VIRTUAL DE LA LLUVIA en el interior del Bar Cock, procede de internet, no nos refresca.
Tampoco podemos en el Bar Cock caminar como caminó con certeza José Tono Martínez a lo largo de unos 135 km de costa a costa a lo largo del Camino de Adriano. #tonomartinez #elcaminodeadriano #barcock #madrid #art #artist #daryavonberner
