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.⁣

Deviation on the basis of the standard, 1997 – Painting, Darya von Berner ⁣

Paul Klee’s drawings about the “abnormal movements within the normal internal construction” are useful also to open the configurative possibilities of “abnormal” or “irregular” on some social norms.⁣

Ceci n’est pas un nuage – Brussels, 2009⁣
Darya von Berner⁣

Ceci n’est pas un nuage, was created for the Nuit Blanche Brussels ’09. It consisted of the temporary installation of a ‘real’ cloud at the Place Royale in Brussels (next to the Musée Magritte). The cloud was created with the help of a new nebulisation technology and consisted of nothing else but pulverised water particles suspended in mid-air.⁣

Homage to: Jan van Helmont, René Magritte y Marcel Broodthaers⁣

Curated by Sabine Cornu⁣

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.
