“What Did You Expect?”// Exhibition in Progress

This week, we focused on preparing our preview exhibition. The final show of our most recent residents from the UK, Canada, Israel, Korea, China, Slovakia, the US, Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands, will present the work of nearly three months spent at the residency.

Through photography, found objects, painting, sculpture, and digital media, aesthetic and social boundaries are blurred. The 33rd round of artists is especially interested in the play of art, its capacity to contain, convey, or spur an experience. We are also pleased to incorporate the work of our local participants, Martin Schuster and Sébastien Kauffmann, as well as our guest artists, Willy Le Nalbaut and Ando Saori. 

All are welcome to attend our opening event this Saturday, December 16th.

Final Exhibition // ‘What Did You Expect?’ of the 33rd round / 16.12 – 22.12.17

The final show of our most recent residents from the UK, Canada, Israel, Korea, China, Slovakia, the US, Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands, will present the work of nearly three months spent at the residency.

You approach one of the disintegrated dwellings on Franz-Flemming. You do this because you have heard there will be a night of performances; perhaps you have even visited before. You are led by candle light up two flights of stairs, and peer through a partially shattered opening. You glimpse a volleyball court, a pi(nk)nic, a cluster of reeking balloons, a fools fire, a suspect living room. What did you expect?

Through photography, found objects, painting, sculpture, and digital media, aesthetic and social boundaries are blurred. The 33rd round of artists is especially interested in the play of art, its capacity to contain, convey, or spur an experience. We are also pleased to incorporate the work of our local participants, Martin Schuster and Sébastien Kauffmann, as well as our guest artists, Willy Le Nalbaut and Ando Saori.

Re-View: Zishi Han and Olivia Malena Vidal at Ping Pong // 30.11.17

Last week, two of our pilots had a joint exhibition at an experimental art space in Lindenau. Under the title “An Evening Story,” Olivia Malena Vidal and Zishi Han presented a curated room which explored a domestic atmosphere, featuring painting and found objects.

We would like to thank the organizer, curator and artist Marcel Noack pf Ping-Pong for his collaborative spirit!

Review: Lenka L. Lukacovicova at Ping Pong

Last week, one of our pilots exhibited at a local art space in Lindenau. Under the title “Situations which were as if they occurred as yesterday,” Lenka Lukacovicova presented an investigation of boundaries between mundane acts and performativity, as well as the ways in which photographic medium can  provoke an ongoing negotiation, rather than a fixed state. 

We would like to thank the organizer, curator and artist Marcel Noack pf Ping-Pong for his collaborative spirit!

Re-View: Open Studio // 03-04.11.17

During last weekends Open Studio event, we were pleased to introduce the current round of pilots to an inquisitive public. Mid-way through the residency program, the 33rd round hasn’t stopped surprising us with their curious and playful approaches.

Our artists also explained their processes and cogitations during the first series of “Work in Dialogue” talks.  We had the chance to discuss the interrelation of themes and disciplines with the audience. Thank you to all who attended this series and expressed interest in our endeavors. We hope to see and meet you during our final exhibition, “WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?”

Open Studio // international group exhibit / 03-04.11.17

The upcoming show of our most recent residents from the UK, Canada, Israel, Korea, China, Slovakia, the US, Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands will present ongoing work after a month spent at the residency. This round of artists has a particular interest in painting, installation, print media, found objects and performance.

The “Open Studio” event is a preview for the final presentation, taking place on December 16th of 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.  

On the second day of the Open Studios, we would like to invite the public to further participate in an open discussion about the process of our current residents.

“Work in Dialogue” Talks:  4.11.17, 14:00h 

The PILOTENKUECHE art program is an independent project, open to artists of all nationalities. The common goal of the final group exhibition leads to intensive dialogue about individual ideas and practices, and binds each artist temporarily into a group, leading to a long term network that exists even after the residency is over.
