This edition dives into Dialer's latest work titled "Embassy," which is an artistic exploration of diplomatic spaces and the emotional and political undertones they carry.

"I will leave the continent for the first time, and thus Minca was created, as a kind of premonition." "Minca, for me, is like the cable cars over the comunas in Medellín, where the delicately balanced technology floats above the fragile, makeshift balance of the communa's houses. But the name then came to me from the memory of Minca—the highest coastal mountain range in the world, near Santa Marta..." Hendrick Dialer

Color is central to Dialer's method, acting as both a canvas and a narrative. His project "Embassy" contemplates the visual language of diplomatic channels—flags, unique color palettes, and fluttering pennants on vehicles—symbolizing not only national identities but also the nuanced and delicate fabric of international relations.

Continuing his reflection, Dialer delves into the nuanced disparities among flags—ranging from hastily produced ones to meticulously crafted ones boasting vibrant, lasting hues.

This divergence sparks a broader conversation about quality, perception, and intrinsic value, epitomized by the notable distinctions observed, such as those between the Spanish embassy and others in Vienna.

In a deeply personal introspection, Dialer envisions the creation of his own embassy—a sanctuary filled with rooms and beds, a haven for his friends, each adorned with seasonal and emotional flags.

This imaginative concept seamlessly intertwines with his fascination of being "between places," evoking a sense of detachment that unfurls a world of boundless possibilities.

This introspection extends further into a self-portrait entitled "MAMA" shrimp flavor, drawing from the nostalgic comfort of childhood foods whose emblem he adopts as a heraldic symbol.

Through this piece, he prompts us to contemplate the balance between individual autonomy and societal constraints.

Dialer's artistic repertoire encompasses a rich blend of mediums and techniques, ranging from unconventional wood and aluminum constructions that challenge conventional artistic norms, to vibrant color studies and organic forms repurposed into art.

"Minca," a notable creation emerging from these explorations, derives its name from a place that resonates with Dialer's curiosity and anticipation of new discoveries.

Hendrick Dialer's "Embassy" transcends the confines of a mere art exhibition; it's a narrative woven from threads of space, identity, and the personal connections that shape our worldview.
