嗯,
不能到現場的朋友,
一起來看看這個外星級別的收藏展。

From 26 May to 16 September 2012, me Collectors Room Berlin will be presenting the collection of Selim Varol. The 39-year-old collector from Düsseldorf with Turkish roots has been collecting toys since his childhood and owns one of the largest collections of figurines in Europe, numbering some 15,000 pieces. A further focus of his collection lies in works by artists who trace their origins back to street art and ‘Pop Surrealism’. Many works in this collection are well-known due to their presence in public spaces. Shepard Fairey helped create a groundswell for Barack Obama with his iconic ‘HOPE’ poster during the United States presidential race in 2008. And JR, the current TED Prize winner, attracted international attention in 2008 with his film ‘28 millimètres: Women Are Heroes’ in the favelas of Rio de Janeiro. The New York artist KAWS is another artist who has exerted a major influence on Selim Varol’s collection, with Varol’s first acquisition of his work in 1999. He is represented in this exhibition with more than 160 works. The exhibition includes a total of 3,000 works by more than 200 artists & designers from over 20 countries.
