Aurel Scheibler is delighted to be showing a solo show of new works by Georgia-born German artist Tamara K.E. under the title of 'Ink Under the Skin'. 'Ink Under the Skin' is K.E.’s first solo exhibition in Berlin. At the same time, her output from the years 2001 and 2003 are included in the show '31: Women' at Haus Huth, Sammlung Daimler, Berlin, from February 29 onwards.

'Ink Under the Skin' comprises two monumental pieces on filmscreen that are no less than ten and four meters in size as well as miniature-like drawings produced with a Copic Marker pen and covering the entire breadth of the world of images Tamara K.E. has created. The display is rounded out by two freestanding filmscreen works, neon tubes scattered around the space as well as a lightbox.

In her works, Tamara K.E. combines the classical medium of painting with a Photoshopped world of images that she then prints out with analogue methods. In terms of both pictorial idiom and creative process, there is no clear separation of analog and digital. The pieces reflect our cultural memories, newer or already wide-spread socio-political themes, and address the progressive transition into a digital world.
