Transcendent Realites is a group exhibition that challenges a static way of living in terms of how we connect with one another, our surroundings, and our values while defending individuality and freedom from prejudice, expectations, and judgment.

Anselm Reyle: Anselm Reyle's art is closely related to modernism since it simultaneously adopts, critiques, and reinvents its tenets. Reyle uses neon colors, found items, and shiny ordinary materials like foil, glitter, and mirrors to create abstract sculptures and paintings. Reyle self-consciously revives elements like Hard-Edged stripes and the expressive brushstrokes of Abstract Expressionism, drawing inspiration from early abstract painter Otto Freundlich and employing methods invented by Jackson Pollock and Barnett Newman. Reyle made his appreciation of popular culture clear in 2011 by designing accessories for the fashion label Dior.
Camille Schaeffer (Cille Sch): French artist based in Berlin. The core of her work explores the connection between artistic production and its unique relationship to the creation of fiction(s). More specifically, Cille Sch is interested in how these created fictions and subsequent notions of perception and understanding come into being. As an artist, performer and creative director, Cille Sch is fascinated by the interaction between the body and space, and uses this interface as a means of fundamentally exploring and reflecting on societal norms and constructs. Inherent in this activity is the questioning of identity, and the way in which we understand ourselves in relationship to others and that of broader culture.
Tabitha Swanson: Tabitha Swanson is a Berlin-based multi-disciplinary designer, creative technologist, and artist.

Commercially, Tabitha has worked with brands including Vogue Germany, Nike, Highsnobiety, Reebok, Origins, and others to create beautiful work in the creative tech and design sphere.
