Daddy, YOU can’t make a cactus… this has been done!
Grimmuseum, Berlin, Germany
Curated by Cato J. Dibelius
Braking Matter, 2006
At the age of 10, Cato J. Dibelius’ first show will appear at the Grimmuseum in January 2013. Having grown up in San Francisco, Munich and Berlin, Cato has visited over four hundred exhibitions with his father, the artist Robert Barta.
Cato’s favourite works stimulate the senses: they smell, they move, they are loud, they are colourful, some you can even eat. He likes art works that are humorous, works, where the original function of the object makes way for a peculiar re-interpretation.
This exhibition is not a theoretical confrontation with art and artistic production, but rather one in which intuition determines the selection of works and their relationship to one another.
Braking Matter will be part of this group show.
