For her show at Meyer Riegger, Berlin, Alma Feldhandler uses the history behind the department stores, Hospitals, tailors’ shops and various Jewish manufacturers and buildings in Berlin during the Weimar Republic. The paintings are scenes in which the commercial and the biblical are woven together in an atmosphere of past splendour. The figures and mannequins are in a ‘state of vigil mixed with fatigue […]What is no longer there is again very close to disappearing’ (Somerset House, Gabriel Gauthier).

Alma Feldhandler (born 1996 in Trappes, France) graduated with a BA from the London College of Communication, University of the Arts London (2017) and postgraduated with a DNSEP from the École Nationale Supérieure d’Arts de Paris Cergy, Paris (2021). Her recent exhibitions are ‘‘Mantel Mann’’ (2023); “The Rings of Saturn”, (2023) and “Mités” (2022) at Galerie Derouillon, Paris.
