WARDELL MILAN | THE BALCONY
Goethestrasse 79, 10623 Berlin Germany
Opening on Friday, 16 September, 6 – 9 pm
BORCH Editions is delighted to present The Balcony, a printmaking project in two episodes by the US-American artist Wardell Milan, at our Berlin Gallery.
Wardell Milan’s work explores the absurdity of politics, socio-political structures, power dynamics, spectatorship, and how these forces effect one’s personal existence. The Balcony alludes to the relationship between performer and spectator in a theatre setting. Milan imagines the viewers observing the action ‘as if they are sitting above in a balcony watching the melodrama unfold before them.’ In his work, human bodies and their surroundings become stages on which questions of gender, race, sexuality and power are being negotiated.
