Art of Akume exhibition in Berlin

This weekend, 29th to 30th of MarchCrush XV hosted the exhibition of my favorite artist: Akume. He exhibited four of his sculptures: The dull flame of desire, Stabat mater, Rex tremendae, and Twisted muse. I have taken photos of his sculptures for his website and every shooting was an exciting challenge, as I was trying to capture all the intricate details and materials, but also to find the right angle and lighting that would express the meaning behind each artwork. As he describes it:

My work is, in a sense, a form of aesthetical violence being forced on the viewer, an impulse to feel violence through violence and reflect.
