We celebrated the opening of our exhibition of Simon Becker’s photographs from our art book „Eurylochus“. This was special to us for various reasons. One obviously being that we are able to show one of our artist’s work to a broader audience. Another one is that with this step we set our foot in the field of high quality art print – which you can easily get excited about!
Luckily finding the right location for the exhibition wasn’t a challenge at all. When we got to know this beautiful french wine bar „oui, madame“ in Mitte, we fell in love right away. With lots of black and wooden elements the atmosphere of the bar is very cosy and stylish at the same time. Simon Becker’s mysterious and equally inviting photographs were the obvious choice for this place – it was a perfect match!
We decided to pick up the black and wooden theme and create frames from natural wood to contrast and also complement Simon’s black and white pictures. We found the perfect material in old attic doors and upcycled them into these handmade frames.
Obviously none of the photographs we showcase at oui, madame is round and all of them are very square, but we nonetheless stayed true to our concept, which stands for an extraordinary format. We enable our artists to give every picture its very own, individual dimensions at the highest quality – in our books as well as in art prints. Thats why the photographs at our vernissage are everything but standard format. The largest exhibition piece is over two meters long, the smallest only 40 centimeters.
In the end we are beyond happy with the outcome of this evening. We had a fun time at the vernissage, enjoyed fine wine and beautiful live music by „La petit mort“. We can only recommend everyone who is into photography (and french wine) to pay oui, madame a visit (Almstadtstraße 43, 10119 Berlin). There you can still keep Simon Becker’s framed photographs company, admire them or even – if you feel the urge – decide to purchase a piece of art, printed and handmade in Berlin.
