Your 3steps




A Piece Of Home | Opening reception 13th of June 2018 | Gallery in the Town Hall of Linden

The exhibition “A Piece of Home” brings the 3Steps collective back to their origins and into the city, where some of their first works were created 20 years ago. As part of the 150th Anniversary cycle of the gallery of the city hall of the city of Linden 3Steps show next to new works also a small retrospective. This gives an overview of the complexity of the portfolio and also reveals unknown studio work. In its current creative phase, the group is dedicated to the term AMBIVALENCE. In doing so, the collective questions the ambiguity of objects, facts and situations People. The works are supposed to evoke new associations in the viewer, to let him see everyday things with different eyes in order to question what he has seen. What is reality, what is Fiction? What do we feel and think intrinsically?
