“Ruinenlust” – Emilia Lloret-Photography -Friday September 1st at 18h-Berlin

Art Aia – La Dolce Berlin is pleased to invite you on Friday, September 1st at 18h to the solo show of Latin American photographer Emilia Lloret (
After a month residency at our venue, the artist will show you her newest work based on her project in Berlin.

“I always return to taking pictures. The sense of getting close to capture memories without the need of words always pulls me back in. This is why I continue.
Creating pictures allows me to acknowledge my own feelings of solitude and vulnerability and enables me to relate to the world around me”.

Emilia Lloret was born in Ecuador (1989). Her work moves between documentary and artistic photography focusing on themes regarding identity and belonging.
Her work has been exhibited worldwide in America, Europe and Asia in festivals such as the FotoFever Art Fair in Louvre Paris, La Salle College of the Arts Singapore, Framed in Sloane Square London, ECAR Art Residency in Boston, Cork Festival in Ireland, etc.
Among her most important awards and recognitions are winning the Deutsche Bank Award in Photography (2014), selected for the first Master Class Latin America by World Press Photo in México City (2015), selected for the Emmanuel College Art Residency Boston (2016), finalist for the Magnum Fellowship in Human Rights (2016).
Her work has been published in The New York Times, Newsweek, The BBC, The Telegraph, The British Journal of Photography, among others.

“Taking the exploration of abandoned places in Berlin as a departing point, these pictures are a visual record of the experiences, encounters, and emotions I went through while I was visiting these locations.
More than a testimony, this series is an exploration of the sense of loss, impermanence and imperfection”.01.jpg

“A meteorological report”. Performance by Elsa Mencagli-Berlin

La Dolce Berlin is pleased to introduce the performance “A meteorological report” by artist Elsa Mencagli ( on Monday July 17th at our venue.

Doors open at 16.30h
Performance starts at 17.00h

A meteorological report is the exploration through bodies of the meteorological conditions in the area of Valdres, Norway, during winter 2017.
Two bodies meeting the winter in the Nordic landscape. The white light, the glittering ice in the snow, the frozen air.
The observations of the meteorological conditions are based, rather than on quantitative notions, on the sensory experience of the body.
And how are the bodies reacting and responding? What movements and thoughts are emerging? What is the sound of bodies moving through the air?
The performance is inviting the audience, through a collection of words, video and sounds, into a space of white, of subtle sounds. Where the frozen snow is cracking when you walk at night, and the stars are sharp dots in the sky.



Art Aia – Creatives/ In / Residence is really excited to be developing a partnership with The Arts Territory Exchange.

The thing I love most about art is its ability to connect people across boundaries of language, background, and culture. So I especially love to capture people and nature – things that are alive. The complexity of human expression alone is something I could explore for a century.

I was born in Preetz, Germany but grew up in the American southwest, where my childhood camping in the wilderness gave me a love for travel. After high school, I moved across the country to Yale University, where I studied art and its connections to law and journalism. I have painted work from tiny newspaper illustrations to giant murals on the walls of New York, but my favorite method is bringing my sketchbook out in public and capturing what I discover. I’ve been lucky enough to work in the field in over 14 countries, mostly on artistic fellowships; destinations include Mongolia, Jerusalem, France, Iceland, and finally Berlin.

This project was inspired by Italo Calvino’s book Invisible Cities: a philosophical analysis of different imaginary cities around the world and the differences and similarities between societies. Living in Berlin – a nexus of dialogue about globalization – I’ve become fascinated by different kinds of human community. My brushstrokes stitch together historical references and my own observations into a visual collage, whose layers of detail can be explored much like a city itself.

James Devlin – Paintings – May 19th- 19h-Berlin

La Dolce Berlin is pleased to announce the solo show of Irish artist James Devlin on Friday May 19th at La Dolce Berlin Art space .



Mixing distortions of the human form with sardonic humor, Devlin paints a world that’s fresh, unyielding and distinctly his own. 7 brand new paintings will be on display from 7:00 pm on the evening of Friday, May 19th. All are invited to attend.

Dublin based artist James Devlin is self-taught in the field of painting/illustration. Practicing for the past three years, his work has been on show throughout Ireland and in New York. His work has also been published internationally. Devlin’s unique take comes from a background in Video/Filmmaking, he received his honors degree in Film from Swansea Metropolitan University Wales in 2011. Going on to work on a number of TV shows in Ireland, Devlin then turned his hand to visual art.

“It’s hard to talk about art, it’s hard to talk about meaning and motive, it’s hard to talk! I’m inspired by the people around me and the places I go, my ideas are just a regurgitation of my experiences but in a distorted way. I’m simply trying to turn myself inside out. The work I intend to show at La Dolce Berlin will be my best batch yet”
