Strychnin Gallery presents: "Those Whoe Dream by Day", A Visual Journey Inspired by Edgar Allan Poe
The mysterious man, whose life was short and filled with tragedy, left behind one of the most admired, questioned and influential literary body of works.
While alive, his writings were ostracized and put under heavy scrutiny; many denied reading his publications. However, the public did yet not realize that Poe was profoundly ahead of his time. A pioneer of the gothic, macabre and thriller genre, he paved way for many detective-story authors to come.
Poe’s popularity soared after his seemingly suicidal death on the 3rd of October, 1849, especially through French avant-garde writers and artists in the late 19th century. Finally, many came to understand and appreciate the psychological depth he sought to convey through his emphasis and curiosity of the dark, imaginative and “strange”. Multitudes were not only intrigued by his ingenious mind, but desired to understand his source of inspirations and meaning of his work.
Thus, over the course of time, more and more distinguished artists have hoped to be associated with and emulate his writings through the visual medium.
Strychnin Gallery wants to re-establish this admiration for Poe and thus was “Those Who Dream by Day” born. A handful of international artists were gathered and given a short story by Poe to take inspiration from. The pieces displayed will transcend only the personal connection and interpretation that each artist has to their given story. Making the gallery walls into a visual library of Edgar Allan Poe’s legacy.
The artists involved will be; David Hochbaum, Kathryn Carr, Daniel Van Nes, Luisa Catucci, Bethany Marchman, Eliza Bolli, Joey Remmers, Yann Gobart, Akiza, Virginia Mori, Loredana Catania, Saturno Butto, Hara Katsiki, Danny van Ryswyk, Ufocinque, Lola, Leila Ataya, Robert Tirado, Nom Kinnear King, Nick Sheehy, Mandy Tsung, Saiko Kato and Chris Collins.
Opened in 2002, Strychnin Gallery 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
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
