Curated by James Gallagher, “CUTTERS2010″ highlights contemporary collage through the work of thirteen international artists. The medium has received renewed attention of late with emphasis placed on a controlled chaos explored through found objects. In Gallagher’s terms, “collage is the recycling, reinterpretation and reprocessing of our collective past, present, and future.”
“CUTTERS2010″ runs from May 11 to July 15, 2010, at Pool Gallery.

The exhibition features:
Cless‘ frenzied scenes, Liam Crockard‘s layered accidents, Valero Doval‘s delicate vintage, Erik Foss‘s dirty girls, April Gertler‘s quiet relations, Jason Glasser’s visual soul, Sophie Kern‘s magical worlds, Matt Lipps’ provocative silhouettes, Max-O-Matic’s controlled chaos, Justin Mortimer‘s displaced limbs, Brion Nuda Rosch‘s iconic shapes, Mario Wagner‘s graphic stories, and pool gallery artist and CUTTERS curator James Gallagher‘s private moments, composed of his signature palette that includes vintage sex manuals, Sears catalogues and antique flea-market finds. One by one, each of these artists produces arresting contemporary works: from CUTTERS in Brooklyn, US, in late 2009 to CUTTERS2010, James Gallagher brings the newly invigorated art form of collage to Pool Gallery and Berlin.
