Daniël van Nes' Fallen Angels show opens at Strychnin Berlin tonight, and I must confess that I'm actually even fonder of the works of the three special guests the gallery has invited:

Marina Bychkova (see image above, previously featured here), Cliff Wallace (see image below) & Virginie Ropars will all exhibit their doll/creature effects/sculpture works alongside Daniël's oeuvre and I really, really wish I could beam myself to Berlin-Mitte to see this exhibition, particularly because Daniël announced on his blog that:

"This will be a show that's in a completely dark gallery... the confessional, the large tryptich and other new work will be present."

I have no idea whether that's a slight exaggeration or whether people will have to bring torches or just stumble through a "completely dark gallery" in the faint hope to smash the least expensive sculpture to pieces, but I admit that it does sound conceptually interesting to say the least. Further details below.

INTERNA

I know all you rich bastards beloved readers have been impatiently waiting an entire year for the glorious moment to buy me a yule present. Which is exactly why I have just updated all my Amazon wishlists (click for UK, US, DE) as well as my Etsy wishlist.

You can of course also buy me a pony and an iPhone central heating and thermo underwear instead or make a small donation if this website has put a smile on your face at some point. If, however, you suffer from facial paralysis and can't stop smiling, please consult a doctor or a qualified plastic surgeon.

Thank you very much for your support!
