Tucked away in a Friedrichshain side street is Berlin's BC Gallery, a cosy two-storey art space housing high-end urban and contemporary art. For the latter part of 2017 and the beginning of the new year, Argentinian artist Elian Chali’s minimalist experiments with space and shape took centre stage, using bright primary colours and organic geometric shapes to disrupt - or in Chali’s words, “annoy” - our comfortable ideas of form, medium and art.
Being his first solo show in five years, the established Chali’s Molestia makes for a strong resurgence, having exhibited in shows both group and solo a numerous amount throughout the past decade, but this time making his solo debut in Europe. With works that interacted in an almost conversational way with their environment, Molestia is an experience in and of itself for those fortunate enough to find themselves wandering Friedrichshain on a rainy Friday.
