First solo exhibition in Berlin by British artist Jodie Carey opens at Neue Berliner Raume
In all her works, Jodie Carey is concerned with the complex dynamics of remembering and letting go.
BERLIN.- Neue Berliner Räume and Galerie Rolando Anselmi present Immemorial, the first solo exhibition in Berlin by British artist Jodie Carey. The exhibition takes place both in the gallery and at a further location.

In all her works, Jodie Carey is concerned with the complex dynamics of remembering and letting go. The artist's approach is marked by her desire to trace the vulnerability of mortality while at the same time attempting to retain something lasting. In doing so, Carey obscures the lines dividing a pure documental archive from a poetic narrative as she carefully weaves these two parts together in her work.

The question of the material sits at the core of Carey's work. The artist uses materials that are at times mundane — like ashes from a cigarette or dust — and at other times highly loaded with symbolic meaning, like blood or bone ashes. Almost always, Carey is interested in a material that is derived from the actual object or moment that she is concerned with. This approach reflects Carey's attempt to create authentic moments of memorializing. Much like religious relics, the artist's works are not merely a symbolic representation but more so, the repository of a material essence. In this duplicity, we see the reinforcement of a remembering that is so typical for Carey's work.

The question of the adequacy of a particular way of remembering is always at the centre of Carey's interest. The artist's aspiration towards an appropriate presentation of the material reflects our own quest for a challenging and meaningful, perhaps even dignified treatment of those moments and objects which we want to secure to our memory. More than anything, the artist's works are always a reference to what is lost in this process, to what is not included. Through her approach, Carey renders this loss an invisible, intangible part of her work.

Jodie Carey (b.1981) studied at Goldsmith’s College, London (2002-5) and the Royal College of Art (2005-7). She has since exhibited widely. Recent solo exhibitions include The New Art Gallery, Walsall 2012, Pump House Gallery, London (2011), Art Forum, Berlin (2009) and Towner Contemporary Art Museum, Eastbourne (2009).
