HVW8 Gallery Berlin is pleased to present LE LUCKY, a fictional and functioning bar created by Josep Maynou, opening Saturday, February 16th. As a celebration of love, friendship and the avant-garde, LE LUCKY is the Catalonian artist’s tribute to his thirteen years in Berlin, as well as a bittersweet goodbye to the city. The exhibition signifies a full circle for Maynou, who during his first year in Berlin worked as a bartender in Berlin's Mitte neighborhood, nearby to HVW8 Berlin. Through the element of collaboration, the artist establishes the gallery as a site of fortuitous social interaction: he has invited fifty of his creative friends to contribute to the installation a performance, artwork or DJ set, programmed throughout the show’s one-month duration. As captured by its title, the exhibition is symbolic of good fortune in social and occupational relations, initiating a chance for new beginnings and exchanges.
