First exhibition in Germany by London-based artist duo BeckerHarrison on view at galerie hiltawsky

With 'Holy Shit', on view at galerie hiltawsky in Berlin presents the first exhibition in Germany by London-based artist duo BeckerHarrison. The show features 17 black & white photographs from their eponymous series, which was produced during Easter and Passover celebrations in Jerusalem. Their visual commentary on the coexistence of the three world religions Judaism, Christianity, and Islam is both subtle and ironic. Using Carolin Becker’s photographs like a canvas, painter and graffiti artist Simon Harrison integrates signs of a seemingly omnipresent military presence. Through skillful airbrushing techniques, he equips the depicted protagonists with weapons and other trappings. 'Holy Shit' thus visualizes the interplay of religion and violence that has prevailed in Jerusalem since the 1960s. The work 'Machine Gun Preachers' depicts a procession of Catholic priests
