The Chilean Artist Felipe Cusicanque will display his art and show how it has evolved since he moved to Berlin three years ago. His work will be displayed from the 5th of June until the 24th of August 2018 in the Chilean Embassy, Berlin.

Felipe Cusicanque is a Chilean artist who moved from Chile to Germany three years ago. Inspired by the German-Jewish journalist and writer Kurt Tucholsky, Felipe Cusicanque is using the last line of his poem “Eyes in the Big City” as the title of his exhibition. The author describes the feeling of not belonging and feeling like the city is intangible, which is what Felipe Cusicanque felt when he first moved to Berlin. Felipe turned to German literature and discovered that nature was one of the main elements, providing inspiration for his work.

Felipe Cusicanque uses street signs, old books, cloths and used fruit baskets that have been left behind as part of his artwork, in order to create a dialogue between the materials and the picture. The exhibition is based on trying to understand the relationship between two worlds: the city and the forest surrounding it (Berlin). Over time parks, buildings and trees found their way into his art, as he became more familiar and comfortable with Berlin.

On Monday, the 4th of June, the Vernissage of the exhibition took place in the Chilean Embassy in Berlin, where the exhibition can be viewed until the 24th of August 2018 on Mondays to Fridays from 11 AM until 5 PM. Those who are interested in attending can register via telephone: 030/7262035 or via email: cmedina@minrel.gov.cl
