Event Details

After long weeks of lockdown, Sfeir Semler Gallery is pleased to announce the opening of a new exhibition at their Hamburg gallery. Curated by Ana Siler, the exhibition WHERE THE LEMONS BLOOM… brings together works by Etel Adnan, Moritz Altmann, Yto Barrada, Bettina, William Kentridge, Timo Nasseri, Ania Soliman, Christine Streuli and Akram Zaatari. “Know’st thou the land where the lemon-trees bloom” is a poem by Johann Wolfgang von Goethe that speaks of longing for heavenly distant lands: The South, the sun and light, Mediterranean flora, bright white buildings, marble, music, laughter and joy. Goethe’s romantic contemplation echoes into our present, lending its title to Christine Streuli’s series of drawings based on advertisement billboards she saw during a recent stay in Hawaii.
