Olegs Tillbergs, born in 1959, is one of the most prominent artists of his country. In 1994 he participated in the São Paulo Biennale in Brazil and received the ARS FENNICA Prize in Finland in 1995. The ifa Gallery Friedrichstraße now presents Olegs Tillbergs’ installation “The Dream of a Little Boy in a Falling Aeroplane”, with which he logically builds on the previous installations and reflects societal, political and social processes of his time in a multi-layered way. The title of the exhibition reveals that poetry also plays a role in his work. For him, human thought is impossible without fiction. Imagination and adventure characterise his work, as does his persistence in realising monumental projects with clear stylistic consistency.
