Lupus Viator, 1994 – Madrid, Spain⠀
Darya von Berner⠀

Museo de Arte Contemporáneo⠀

Wall painting⠀
Foto: Joaquín Cortes⠀

In the context of the group show “Confrontaciones (los entornos de la imagen)”, the ephemeral painting Lupus Viator, acquired monumental proprtions and covered the entirety of a wall at the museum of Anthropology in Madrid.⠀

Curators: Martín Bartolomé and Félix Guisasola⠀
Sponsor: Ministerio de Asuntos Sociales⠀
In collaboration with Ministerio de Cultura⠀

The project Lupus Viator (latin: wolf walking) began as a series of monumental painted installations of an ephemeral nature and realised in situ. Later the project 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.⠀

Marchas de Elefantes, 1998 – Madrid⠀⁣
Video, Darya von Berner⠀⁣
⠀⁣
Mercado de Fuencarral⠀⁣
Madrid, 1998⠀⁣
Duration: 0:44, loop⠀⁣
⠀⁣
At the Mercado de Fuencarral (Madrid), Marcha de Elefantes was shown in the format of a multi-media installation. On several monitors, in and outside of the market, the video of an elegant couple walking in front of a homeless, was shown on a loop.

Production: Laagencia (Vicente Matallana)⠀⁣
⠀⁣
The project Marcha de Elefantes, is a metaphor of walking: the walk of all the wild animals and people which have lost their habitat and homes, uprooted and forced to leave their place of origin.⠀⁣
⠀⁣
The work began as a series of large-scale murals, but later the wall-based work was complemented by sculptures, videos and also performances.⠀⁣

Fuera de lugar, 2009 – Sculpture – Darya von Berner⁣

⁣Carole Pateman definition of ‘prostitution’ as an institution that involves the exchange of money for sexual services (property in the person) and, as an institution, has nothing to do with women’s desire, but has a lot to do with women’s survival – and the very large profits of those who control the global sex industry.⁣
