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 a new exciting era.

Appropriately, the Strychnin Gallery thought about the possible consequences of this event and concluded that an advisory show must be made: ATTENTION EARTH! A show that presents viewers what is yet to happen or what has already come…

Strychnin Gallery wanted to pay tribute to one of our favorite apocalyptic forecasts; the extraterrestrial invasion! The year 2013 celebrates the 60th anniversary of two 1950’s sci-fi classics: H.G. Well’s War of the Worlds and Invaders from Mars. An artistical and aesthetic admiration that only this era and genre can boast about are their iconic poster artwork. Put two and two together and so was born a show that will immortalize not only the making of these films, but also the following of all sci-fi and space life believers.

For one month, we will be home to exclusive renditions of cult classic interpretations of alien-life, unidentified flying objects, laser guns, tripods and weapons of mass destruction. Instead of shying from the unavoidable invasion, we have brought the invasion to our premises! The artists involved took inspiration from the aesthetics of all promotional and cinematographical work of this cinematic generation. The featured artists will be Meredith Dittmar, Seymour, Mimi S, Derek Nobbs, Yoko d'Holbachie, Mark Alfrey, Cliff Wallace, Eugene Plotnikov, Nicolas Le Borgne, Joe Fenton, Carlos Valenzuela, Chris Dean, Serge Gay Jr., Jonathan Bergeron, Monique Ligons, Tom Lewis, Elmer Presslee, Matt Gordon, Skeleton Heart and Glenn Barr.

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
