In the Sky Unlike a Bird


Exhibition: 14 September – 12 November 2022
Opening: Friday, 16 September 2022, 6 – 9 pm
Venue: Persons Projects, Lindenstr. 34, 10969 Berlin

During Berlin Art Week 2022.

Persons Projects is proud to present a group exhibition In the Sky Unlike a Bird which is a collection of six artists’ interpretations of how an individual weighs and ponders upon the different volumes of nothingness. It’s an exhibition that creates a space where words float in the air and islands hang by a thread pinned to an infinity of blue on blue. Imagine an image of gravity dangling by its arms or a man in the moon who teases the tides by splashing the ocean one wave at a time. Howard Altmann says it best in his poem used in collaboration with Dominik Lejman’s painting, "could it be the sky has changed its colors? The natural order is where I turn now to turn myself around”. It’s not about what we see but more so how we perceive the place we are in.

The Helsinki School – The Nature of Being


Exhibition: 27 June – 5 September 2020 
Venue: Lindenstr. 34 – 35, 10969 Berlin 

Persons Projects | Helsinki School is proud to present our group exhibition The Helsinki School – The Nature of Being. This show will take place in both of our spaces Lindenstr. 34 and 35, and will be accompanied with our latest publication from the Helsinki School series volume 6 by Hatje Cantz.
This exhibition focuses on how these selected artists from the Helsinki School use their internal compass to intrinsically measure and guide their perspective in interpreting the landscape they live in. Historically, Nordic culture abides by the power generated by the changing of the four seasons. Each of these natural time periods either by its wrath or grace, notches its mark upon its passing, leaving a reminder in its wake of how fragile our human presence is within it.
