Visiting: Shaima Sobhy // 06.04.18

On Thursday, PILOTENKUECHE visited the studio of Shaima Sobhy, whose paintings are influenced by her Egyptian heritage. Shaima was born in Dubai, worked at German University Cairo and is currently writing her Ph.D.-thesis at Bauhaus University Weimar.

The mostly female figures she displays are often provocatively naked, their bodies twisted in surrealistic deformations, often sexualized, partly veiled, oscillating between two extremes of visibility and complete disguise. Especially in older works, she also includes references to traditional ancient Egyptian artwork. She talked about her motifs as well as her experiences with exhibiting her art in Cairo and Leipzig.
Thank you Shaima for having us!

This was the 34th Round

Last week we said goodbye to our most recent residents. We will remember the ideas and collaborative spontaneity inspired by the first round of 2018 to work at our studio! We would also like to thank our interns, local participants, guests and friends, attendees and our supporters, as well as the broader Leipzig community for participating in our events. We hope to foster a continued exchange between our international participants and the local artists.  

Here is a selection of impressions from the 34th round, including museum tours, gallery visits, artist talks, and our preview and final events:

Final Exhibition // “FLUGBAHN” of the 34th round / 24.03.18

The final show of our most recent participants from the US, Canada, Israel, Denmark, Chile, Turkey, Ireland, Germany, Italy, Brazil, and Ireland, bring a focus on painting, sculpture, textiles and photography. The group will present the work following three months spent at the program. Here are impressions of their most recent preview exhibitions, realized and displayed at the spaces of our partner “Alte Handelsschule” and “Ping Pong“:

 

“FLUGBAHN”‘ is a flight path. In the 34th round at PILOTENKUECHE, we discover new trajectories, and examine common intersections. A single space contains paper and sound, dyed fabric and video footage, modified attire and paintings. In one moment individual routes are perceived, in another, the collective enterprise of sharing one Flugbahn.

We are also pleased to incorporate the work of our local participants, Anja Heymann and René Schäffer, as well as our guest artists featured during the program of the opening night at our studios. All are welcome to board the final flight of the 34th round.
