Freya Copeland & Youvalle Levy

Replika Publishing, 2019

‘Kalt’ is a conversation between the photographic artists Freya Copeland and Youvalle Levy, exploring the existential dread, boredom and isolation experienced in many northern European cities, in particular Berlin. The artists communicate as if in written correspondence, the longing for their native lands’ warmth and light, while at the same time fighting against their native lands in order to find comfort in their adopted city.

Replika co-founder, Freya Copeland (b.1990), is an artist and curator primarily interested in archival systems, documents and evidential photography. Her work explores the boundaries between institutional systems and personal narratives, constantly drawing from any transitory written or printed matter not intended to be retained or preserved. Through media such as police evidence and pictorial encyclopedia, she demonstrates her predisposition to singling out the inherent limitations of the photographic medium and uses these restrictions as a vehicle for exploring personal narratives.

Youvalle Levy (b.1991) as well as co-founding Replika, has studied both photography and Architecture in Berlin. She is interested in documenting spaces and abstractions and creating abstractions defined within architectural space. Through various mediums the relationship between documenting, creating and archiving is paramount in her artistic work. However, architecture remains the ground stone on which Youvalle deals with creating spaces specifically for art and artists within the capacity of curator. Her work explores the basic need for art to exist in a space, and how to construct a physical space which fulfils this need.

The launch exhibition will take place in the Blue Room, Braunschweigerstr. 16, 12055 Berlin-Neukölln on the 31st of May from 6 – 10 pm. There will be a short artist talk (held in English) with the artists Freya Copeland and Youvalle Levy at 8 pm.
