Press release from: Strychnin Gallery

„Christian is a global ambassador for LOVE, he takes his heart and pours it into everything he does.“
-Shaney Jo Darden / Founder Global CEO / The Keep A Breast Foundation / Los Angeles

As the year comes to an end, Strychnin Gallery saved the month of Decemeber for a special exhibition, Metropolitan. Metropolitan is an important rendition of today’s developement. With the passing of each moon, we become more united with the world surrounding us. Thanks to technology, we are able to stay in contact and keep up to date with people and events 16099.88 km away from us.
Now, berlin artist, Christian Rothenhagen, will bring us “back to the roots” and delight us with a new medium of staying up to date: the drawing. We have long forgotten this mean, by which our forefathers wrote, archived and revisited hisotry. Strychnin will exhibit Mr. Rothenhagen’s depiction of the streets of Berlin, but we will also offer viewers to look through the eyes of this artist and visit the cities of San Francisco and Toronto. The space will become an album, displaying images “frozen in time”. It will be like looking through a traveller’s personal snapshots; something so intimate, which is emphasized by the unusual angles Christian Rothenhagen chooses to admire and bring to life. His special eye enables him to pick corners of otherwise unstriking places and through his delicate line technique transform them into aesthetic wonder-spots. With this collection, Christian is opening up his personal journal and letting us get lost in his world.
Moreover, Christian enbled an array of other artists to display their works, aswell. Strychnin Gallery will present a groupshow, curated by Mr. Rothenhagen himself. The concept is to collect and exhibit interpretations of urban landscapes by different artists and cherish the diversity of our society. There will be over thirty international artists participating.
Christian will also be releasing his new book; a limited edition on 150 copies , signed and numbered, box-set that comes with a CD and sticker. The venissage will be on the 7th of December at 7 p.m. and the show runs until the 2nd of February.

This Friedrichshain outpost of Yasha Young’s Strychnin Gallery offers passage into a surreal and sometimes spooky wonderland.

Opened in 2002, Strychnin Berlin—like its sister galleries in NYC and London—concentrates its curatorial efforts on young, emerging artists whose work ranges from fantastic realism and pop surrealism to lowbrow, but who have not yet been categorized under trendy art world monikers. The diversity of the artists is mirrored in their choice of media, with paintings and photographs sharing the gallery space with sculpture and installations.

The gallery participates in international art fairs such as Bridge Art Fair, Liste Cologne, and Art Fair 21, which appointed Young to its selection committee in 2008. In keeping with the vision of its founder, Strychnin not only emphasizes the individuality of its artists but also seeks to strengthen ties with Berlin’s creative community, often arranging for local DJs and musicians to liven up vernissages.

Nephelococcygia/// Cloud Cuckoo Land /// Solo Exhibition by David Hochbaum
In Aristophanes’ comedy “The Birds,” an imaginary city built in the clouds by birds at the instigation of two Athenians represented both a fantastic caricature of Athens in the poet's day and a sort of Philistine Utopia: full of gross enjoyments, hence, in literary allusion, cloudland- “fools' paradise”. A fools paradise in the clouds- is that where we’re going when we search the clouds for familiar objects? This action, coined precisely

“Those who dream by day”, opening doors on the 15th of March at Strychnin Gallery, celebrates the imagination and oeuvres of the great Edgar Allan Poe.

While alive, his writings were ostracized and put under heavy scrutiny; many denied reading his publications. However, the public did yet
ATTENTION EARTH!
It’s the year 2013, if you’re reading this Earth has shockingly survived the Mayan prediction and prophetic date of December 21st, 2012. Since this is being written in the past, it’s not certain what has happened to humankind. Did Earth collide with planet X? Or was the cataclysm of 2012 a positive physical and/or spiritual transformation for humanity. Be as it may, hopefully this day will mark the beginning of
