Outer (Safe) Space: Ad Minoliti’s ‘GG’

Matteo Calla, Berlin Art Link, February 3, 2023

In ‘GG,’ Ad Minoliti’s latest show at Peres Projects in Berlin, the white cube has been domesticated. Stepping into the gallery space on Karl-Marx-Allee feels less like entering a contemporary art venue and more like an adolescent’s living room. On the walls and floors, the usual set of individual works for individual consumption has been swapped with decor and furniture: paintings extending seamlessly into wall paint and spilling onto carpets dotted with bean bag chairs and stools shaped like cartoon cats, all rendered in bold geometry and primary colors.
