This publication unites the work of two artists who belong to different generations and who, despite both living in Berlin, have never actually met.
With a fine sense for the potential of inconspicuous objects and natural materials, both artists manage to charge their arrangements with energy.
For Julius, a broadened understanding of music is the field of reference. Canell, on the other hand, is particularly interested in the physical and poetic characteristics of the items and found objects with which they work.
Both know, each in their own way, how to develop a silent magic in that which is ephemeral and unstable.
Published on the occasion of the exhibition Nina Canell / Rolf Julius: Lautlos at Hamburger Bahnhof, Museum für Gegenwart, Berlin, 30 November 2012 – 23 June 2013.
