Re-View: Pilots at Ping Pong // Kaleidoscope GmbH / 08-11.02.18

Last week, some of our pilots had a joint exhibition at an experimental art space in Lindenau. We had a wonderful time in the collaboratively curated room, in which there was a nail-painting intervention, oil paintings, paper works, as well as an ominous fabric sculpture.

We would like to thank the organizer, curator and artist Marcel Noack of Ping-Pong for his collaborative spirit! Please join us for our next show, DURCHDASHAUS, on February 22nd!

Visiting: Hannes Uhlenhaut and Studio Paunsdorf // 01.02.18

Last week, PILOTENKUECHE visited the east side of Leipzig. Hannes Uhlenhaut, co-founder of Studio Paunsdorf, welcomed us at his ceramic & mixed media collective atelier. We discussed the history of ceramics, its connection the the baroque, new was of using an old material, and art for space ships. We discussed process and the notion of a “calculated mistake,” when a mistake is more interesting than what is meant to happen. Thank you Hannes for having us!

Visiting: Halle Trip and René Schäffer // 25.01.18

Last week we visited the studio of René Schäffer, the current artist in our Local Participant Program, where we discussed his photography practice, methodology, and influences. He gave us very interesting insights into different works of his artistic career and his creative processes, starting with light paintings and photo series at Galerie Nord to more recent works like anti-photographic images at his studio. This was our first tour of Halle, and we will certainly return. In the evening and back in Leipzig, there was also an event at our partner venue, Krudebude

Thank you René for showing us the city, gallery and studio!
