Artists: Bora Akinciturk, KAITO Itsuki, Benjamin Reichwald

Stirring the paint and casting the spell, KAITO Itsuki, Bora Akinciturk and Benjamin Reichwald join forces for the 2020 renauguration of The Residence Gallery in London’s East End. Pointy fingers swathed in gradients of pastel purple flames, the Amazon Fire burns bright tonight! This painting exhibition forms a rite of passage into an intangible omniverse of alien escapades and unidentified cosmetic textures in an information age. We re-purpose a sense of ourselves for a taste of things to come.

Stirring the paint and casting the spell, KAITO Itsuki, Bora Akinciturk and Benjamin Reichwald join forces for the 2020 renauguration of The Residence Gallery in London’s East End. Pointy fingers swathed in gradients of pastel purple flames, the Amazon Fire burns bright tonight! This painting exhibition forms a rite of passage into an intangible omniverse of alien escapades and unidentified cosmetic textures in an information age. We re-purpose a sense of ourselves for a taste of things to come.

Benjamin Reichwald (born in Sweden, 1994) lives and works
in Berlin. Since 2013 he has built a critically acclaimed body
of work under the moniker “Bladee”, as a singer, producer,
fashion designer, visual artist and CEO of Drain Gang. This
exhibition, however, is the first time his paintings and drawings
have been shown in a gallery setting. The work extends
the cult-like mythology and symbolism of his self-made album
artwork towards a high-pitched psychedelia inspired from practice
in realizing and defining hyperdimensional pictures.

KAITO Itsuki (born in Sapporo Japan, 1993) makes her London
debut with paintings that play out an immorality and shameful
narcissism through situations and characters. Common
motifs include knives, tightened belts, excrement and divinely
destructive hands of Amazones. Her paintings take us to the
darkest regions of the human psyche, offering a painted mythological
lesson for a contemporary digital age.

Bora Akinciturk (London based, born in Ankara, Turkey, 1982)
playfully disorients us amidst fact-checked physical “reality”,
intergenerational sensibilities and the slippery virtual outskirts
of the internet. Featured in this exhibition are 2 re-worked
paintings; an Igor Morski digital illustration of surreal alien
star children remade as a traditional oil painting. The other, an
oil painting after a copy believed to be attributed to a copy of
a lost work by Godfried Schalcken (Dutch painter 1643–1706),
featuring a person taking a light from a naked flame.
