Our Recommended exhibition for February has a name as good as its art: Alana Richards‘s exhibition “Morphium; Hallucinations of a Kabaret” on view at the Ballery, plays with all those faces, dreams, and hallucinations that were the “normale Weise” during the Weimer Republic and that still today are taking the underground world of a modern Berlin in the shape of cabaret nights. Faces like that of Le Pustra, the local Goodness of Today’s Berlin Cabaret scene, a couple of sisters that look like the artist herself, an elegant man and his tuxedo, portraits that are painted with sadness and grace in this beautiful exhibition by the Irish young artist. Whit her show Richards take us back to a time of elegance and seduction, an era that lucky for some of us is still alive.
