Strychnin Gallery in Berlin presents Fallen Angels: Dec 12th

Strychnin Gallery in Berlin Presents: DANIEL VAN NES - Fallen Angels. Featuring special guests VIRGINIE ROPARS, CLIFF WALLACE and MARINA BYCHKOVA.

Open Reception is December 12th, 7 p.m.

The real replaced by the virtual, oversaturation through the media and the ever-present TV screens with marketing messages that seep into our lives and dreams not unlike religious slogans – these are the themes of Dutch artist DaniĆ«l van Nes’ new series of work. Playing with religious imagery and mixing it up with sub- and underground cultures, the characters in his work are angels expelled from the Garden who find themselves utterly alone in their fall.
