Re-View: Consultations // 15.03.18

The consultation between a curator and an artist is a crucial moment for the exhibition. The direct contact between the participants guides the overall direction of the curation, and encourages creativity, a process that transforms the initial and individual ideas. In this pairing, we develop a different concept about an exhibition, one that is greater than the ideas of one mind. The consultation period also allows the artist to reevaluate their work and to compare their ideas with an outsider, which ultimately helps define their position in the exhibition. It is likewise essential for the curator to understand the individual pieces that are a part of the exhibition as a whole. We are looking forward to a night of performances and collaboration, and would again like to invite you to Flugbahn, the final exhibition of the 34th round at our studios!

Opening: 24.03.18, 18:00h

Open: 26.03 – 28.03.18 (Mo, Tue, Wed, 12 – 15h)

Alumnus Collaboration: “Disco Apocalyptic” // Opening 13.03.18

Last Tuesday, we were invited to our former participants’ exhibition DISCO APOCALYPTIC in Gallery am Ratswall in Quedlinburg, where our head Martin Holz held a speech after some music by Le Petit F. Martin Schuster, Local Participant in round 33, shows painting, drawing and objects there until April 29, 2018. Some of the paintings were created during Martin’s stay at Pilotenkueche. The gallery is open from Tuesday to Friday and on Sundays from 10 am to 4 pm.

Visiting: Laura Eckert // 08.03.18

Last week, PILOTENKUECHE visited the Spinnerei in Leipzig. Laura Eckert welcomed us at her studio, where we had the chance to take a closer look at her sculptures. We discussed her method of using recyclable material, the intersection of medium and message, her aesthetic choices, and discussed her position as an artist. Thank you Laura for having us.

Expansions: Magdalena Cichon joins PILOTENKUECHE

We’d like to introduce Magdalena Cichon as the new Program Coordinator. She studied Painting and Textile Art at Burg Giebichenstein Halle until 2014, cooperating with galleries since 2011. Since 2015, she has been writing her Ph.D. thesis at Bauhaus University Weimar about painting as a means of research and epistemology. From April 2018, Magdalena will continue Natalia Kalicki’s work at Pilotenkueche.

As a painter, Magdalena mostly works with acrylic on canvas, experimenting with coincidence and oscillating between display and abstraction. The human body, its means of expression via its diverse ranges of shape and posture, is her main topic.

Check out her website here.

We are excited that Magdalena is going to join the team of Pilotenkueche where she will coordinate activities, set up exhibitions and care for PR-related tasks.

 

Re-View: Consultations // 26.02-28.03.18

Consultations, curation talks and follow-ups are an important part of our program. In the last week our in -house emerging curator, Maria Aria, discussed ongoing processes with individual residents of the 34th round, in preparation for the final exhibition “Flugbahn” held on March 24th at Pilotenkueche.  All are welcome to attend!

Visiting: Anja Heymann and Christian Brown in Connewitz // 01.02.18

Last week, PILOTENKUECHE visited Connewitz in Leipzig.  Anja Heymann, our local participant this round, welcomed us at her studio, where we had the chance to take a closer look at her work, collections, and methodology. We continued to the studio of Christian Brown, also a former pilot who relocated to Leipzig, to take a look at his drawing and printing practice. We ended the trip with a visit to Werk 2 Kulturfabrik, where we had the chance to speak about the various open studio programs, ranging from etching to book binding. We thank the artists for hosting us!
