Last Friday Jose Romussi brought his big chaos and intuitive creative mind into our gallery space. With the help of his friend and artist collaborator Edgar López, they put together an amazing exhibition with a mexican and chilean spice. One felt like at home, as Romussi says that Artconnect Berlin feels for him. We were particularly happy to have this exhibition “bei uns” because it’s not any ordinary exhibition, it’s a proper exotic and different exhibition from the ones we’ve had before: very latin, cozy, full of bright colours, a big variety of techniques and of course, as Romussi said, with flowers and candles, otherwise it would be no proper exhibition!
The building up involved a big concentration for Romussi and López, no eating until finished, lots of mate tea (in Club Mate version too!) and stepping back and forth to check the composition. Finding bottles for the flowers, getting the adequate ones, and particularly, making an absolute mess of the floor to figure out what feels best on the wall, was a required procedure to achieve such an inviting set up.
The exhibition, with beautiful ballerinas, candle light, flowers, glühwein and a lot of friends and fans of Romussi was simply beautiful. The whole exhibition was simply so charming and with such an exotic latin american touch, that was absolutely irresistible not to admire the artworks in the environment they truly belong to. But not only that, it was as a great deal of fun and a success on the sales – from the very first 10 minutes we already had a ballerina sold – and no wonder, have you checked out the prices?
Collages intervened with embroidering are 50€. Ballerinas are between 100€ and 150€ and the big latest artworks are 200€, but you can also get them in a smaller version for half of the price!
Also, if you want a ballerina for your own or any other artwork, Jose Romussi can make one for you, and they are always slightly different from the others, so you will have a unique piece!
I bought one for myself, couldn’t resist. Can you?
Come see the exhibition until the 21st of December and see if you can resist the temptation!
