The exhibition ONCE ONLY ONCE presents immersive installations by French artist Djeff on 3,000 sqm in the impressive vaults of the former Bohemian Brewery in Friedrichshain during Berlin Art Week. Curated and organised by Polina Piagin and Lotta Pick.
ONCE ONLY ONCE celebrates the fulfilling and thought-provoking experience. It prompts to embrace and to reflect on what makes our existence so unique: only one life, only one earth.
Three installations unfold under the vaults: they are appealing to the senses which are universal to humankind and foster an awareness of being, while drawing on technologies that are dominating our everyday life. “The Great Escape” is a space filled with hundreds of candles, “Black Widow” an installation which evokes the idea of a technological trap, “Breeze” transforms every shadow of movement to a luminous game, facilitating the exploration of the body in space.
ONCE ONLY ONCE is the first solo exhibition of the artist Djeff in Germany. Works by the Frenchman have been exhibited internationally, including at the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the E-Arts Festival in Shanghai and the Haus der Elektronischen Künste Basel. The large installation solo exhibition in Berlin is curated and organised by Polina Piagin and Lotta Pick.
The installation is supported by Unité de Production and made possible by Transiträume Berlin e. V. and the real estate company PANDION, founding member of the association and owner of the VAULT vault.
