This Friedrichshain outpost of Yasha Young’s Strychnin Gallery offers passage into a surreal and sometimes spooky wonderland.
Opened in 2002, Strychnin Berlin—like its sister galleries in NYC and London—concentrates its curatorial efforts on young, emerging artists whose work ranges from fantastic realism and pop surrealism to lowbrow, but who have not yet been categorized under trendy art world monikers. The diversity of the artists is mirrored in their choice of media, with paintings and photographs sharing the gallery space with sculpture and installations.
The gallery participates in international art fairs such as Bridge Art Fair, Liste Cologne, and Art Fair, which appointed Young to its selection committee in 2008. In keeping with the vision of its founder, Strychnin not only emphasizes the individuality of its artists but also seeks to strengthen ties with Berlin’s creative community, often arranging for local DJs and musicians to liven up vernissages.
