Exhibition ONE DAY Berlin at Benhadj & Djilali Galerie

Yasmine Benhadj-Djilali, founder of the gallery and curator of the exhibition, is delighted with the resounding success of the ONE DAY | BERLIN exhibition, which she will now extend until next year. The artist Adrian Sierra Garcia comes from Tijuana/Mexico. The binational artist grew up right next to the much-discussed border between Mexico and the USA. For his exhibition, Adrian Sierra Garcia creates an impressive and brutal installation. The installation is aggressive, irrational, and absurd, allowing the visitor to feel what it means to be affected by exclusion.

At the same time, however, the sculpture also enables, in the broadest sense, a creative approach to the search for one’s own happiness within an imposed system.

With ONE DAY BERLIN, Adrian Sierra Garcia wants to pay tribute to all those affected by the wall between Mexico and the USA.

The most important exhibition in Berlin

The Benhadj & Djilali Gallery opened in November 2018 and attracted over 500 enthusiastic visitors. For one year now, Berliners and tourists will have the opportunity to
to visit and experience an eye-catching exhibition. “This is currently the most important and relevant exhibition in Berlin,” says Dr. Filipp Goldscheider, publicist, film producer and art collector.

Paying tribute to the victims of the border wall between Mexico and the USA

“I want to show my appreciation and respect to all people affected by the border between Mexico and the USA. I would also like to offer my condolences to all those who died trying to get to the other side. The public does not know that since 2005 more than ten billion dollars have already been spent on border barriers between Mexico and the USA. It’s important that people experience all the atrocities that are happening because of the violent division between the two nations,” says artist Adrian Sierra Garcia about his work.
