Re-view: ‘UNS GEFÄLLT ALLES’ / 12.08.17

Here are some impressions of the preview show of recent residents from Austria, the UK, South Africa, South Korea, the USA, Canada, Brazil, Scotland, and Argentina, after having spent two months working at the residency. This round of artists has a particular interest in painting, ceramics, installation, found objects and social media, with thematic interests ranging from the narrative of digitized memory, sexual  identity & identity politics, to the autonomy and objecthood of a painting.  

We would like to thank Galerie Bipolar for hosting the exhibition, WISP Kollectiv for their performance, and all the attendees who came to the opening event.

“UNS GEFÄLLT ALLES” // Exhibition in Progress

This week, we focused on preparing our preview exhibition. This round of artists has a particular interest in painting, ceramics, installation, found objects and media arts, with thematic interests ranging from the narrative of digitized memory, sexual  identity & identity politics, to the autonomy and objecthood of a painting.  “Uns gefällt alles” is a preview for the final presentation, taking place in September 2017. This exhibit aims to share the research and production that has continued at the new site of Pilotenkueche. It is our goal to trigger and to develop a dialogue, to propel a participative mandate between enthusiasts & artists.  Tonight we are pleased to feature guest performers from WISP, as well as a collaborative performance between our own artists.

All are invited to attend tonight’s opening event.

Visiting: Andrea Garcia // 27.07.17

Last week we visited the studio of the former pilot Andrea Garcia Vasquez (Mixed Media; USA). She uses textiles as a mimetic device, and as a basis for psycho-geographic experiments. We spoke of her approach, of the adoption and manipulation of nature, topophilia, and the status of craft in contemporary galleries. We are happy to connect former residents with our recent artists. Many thanks Andrea, for your continued participation in your program!

That same evening, we had the chance to visit exhibitions at Potemka Gallery and D21, two contemporary art spaces in the Lindenau neighborhood.
