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.

This was the 31st Round

Last week we said goodbye to our most recent residents. We’d like to commend this round of artists for making our first term in the new studios an exceptional learning experience; We will not forget your openness and your efforts! In addition we would like to thank our  friends, attendees and our supporters during these months of transition, as well as the broader Leutzsch community for participating in our Tour de Franz open studio event. We hope to foster a continued exchange between our international residents and the local artists.  

Here is a selection of impressions from the 31st round, including museum tours, gallery visits, artist talks, and our preview and final events:

Re-view: ‘FULL STOP’ / 20 – 27.05.17

Here are some impressions of the final show of the recent residents from Brazil, Belgium, Greece, Canada, Sweden, Northern Ireland, USA, UK, Russia, Malaysia, China, and South Korea after they worked three months in PILOTENKUECHE.

This group was particularly special to us as the first group of artists that has vitalized the new site of Pilotenkueche. Their work offered a very special focus on painting, research based work, installation and photography, presenting a diversity of expression around the topics of identity, data aggregation, & nature with a myriad of technical & activistic approaches. During the opening were three performances, live music, and a chance to discuss the final work with our international residents. In addition we were pleased to include three guest artists from Leipzig: Hannes Uhlenhaut, Marie Lynn Ravens, and hansen_windisch. With an ethos of inclusion, we presented a range of narratives to explore the dialogue of the broader context in contemporary art. The show  took place at the new space of PILOTENKUECHE, where all were welcome to attend the celebration of the tenth anniversary of the project. Here are some impressions of the exhibition:

“Walls blanketed in holes and cracks lay bare the pasts that precede us. We seek to consider these small histories and to converse with them, highlighting their presence.

„Und doch sind sie, diese lange Vergangenen, in uns, als Anlage, als Last auf unserem Schicksal, als Blut, das rauscht, und als Gebärde, die aufsteigt aus den Tiefen der Zeit. – Rilke
