PROJECTS



To Half Sell A Duck
A solo project by David Bernstein

Opening reception, performance & dinner on September 10, 2022, central Athens.

To Half Sell A Duck is an exhibition and performance that brings together a constellation of works around the theme of queer religious futures. Bernstein comes from a Reconstructionist Jewish background and is influenced by “The Crash”, a concept from progressive Rabbi, Bennay Lappe. She argues that religious “master narratives” will eventually crash and we should choose a path of radical re-imagination. This is embodied in the artist's exploration of "Judeo-Futurism", reclaiming historical symbols of oppression by placing them into queer fantasies. Guests will be guided through the exhibition with a performance that tells a story about a radical priest who makes kinky paintings, the creation of a Golem who fights canards, and an encounter with the artist Danh Võ who asks Bernstein to cut up a medieval wooden Jesus into pieces.

David Bernstein (He/him, 1988, San Antonio, Texas) is an artist based in Brussels and Amsterdam. He is a linguistic, metaphysic, mystical lunatic, and likes to play with words. Bernstein makes objects and finds ways to activate them with storytelling performances. His projects deal with a range of subjects: psychology, wellness, hospitality, and spirituality. Next to his individual practice, he collaborates with a variety of people and is a member of the cosmic cowboy collective, Self Luminous Society.

David has completed an MFA from Sandberg Institute (Amsterdam) and a post-graduate residency at Jan van Eyck Academy (Maastricht). He has exhibited and performed internationally at: CAC (Vilnius), SculptureCenter (New York), SALT Galata (Istanbul), Stedelijk Museum (Amsterdam), Abteiberg Museum (Mönchengladbach), Raven Row (London), Ludwig Forum (Aachen), De Appel Art Center (Amsterdam), Nomas Art Foundation (Rome).
