Bad Taste Is A Crime

Having previously organized two other editions, one in Paris and another in London, Thomas Erber personally selected around 40 artist guests from different parts of the world for the third edition of “Le Cabinet de Curiosités de Thomas Erber.” The show is currently being exhibited in the luxurious, artsy boutique Andreas Murkundis in Berlin’s pretentious Charlottenburg district. He has gathered curiosities from different creative fields from fashion to art, including photographs, paintings, sculptures, among other sumptuous objects.

When entering the space, my attention was immediately drawn to an enormous Teepee  (a recreation of a Native American tradicional tent) that I later find out was hand-sewn by the Japanese artist Visvim. This structure was only the first of many surprises.

As I looked around and my eyes explored the pieces of art around the room, I noticed that the works share the space with racks displaying extremely expensive clothes, including labels such as Balenciaga. I didn’t even have to check the prices to feel out of place. My visit was definitely one of those moments in life that you really wish you had more money – I felt like a diabetic kid in a candy store.
