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:

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)

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.

Re-View: “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!
