Visiting: intershop interdisciplinaire, Helge Hommes and Saxana N. Schötschel // 26.04.18

Last week we visited two spaces, intershop interdisciplinaire in the Spinnerei and the studio of Saxana N. Schötschel and Helge Hommes. At textile artist Louise Walleneit’s  intershop interdisciplinaire, we saw the work of Anita Kriebel and Carsten Busse, and had the chance to discuss the exhibition with Carsten himself. The exhibition consists of conceptual multimedia installations which combine various techniques and forms of expression. We spoke to Carsten about his constructivist influences, references to Beuys, and desire to let his art speak for itself rather than explaining it. Thank you Carsten for having us!

Next we visited the studio of Helge Hommes and Saxana N. Schötschel, where we learned about not only the paintings and installation pieces, but also the political and personal motivations behind each artist’s work. We discussed the ways that Helge and Saxana’s work has evolved since meeting each other, and the pressure that comes along with the “trap” of recognition. Thank you for your time Helge and Saxana, and for giving us a copy of Helge’s manifesto!

Re-view: ‘Augment’ // Preview Show of the 31st Round

After the wonderful opening of the “COMMA,” show at Galerie Bipolar our artists from Belgium, Greece, Canada, UK & Malaysia presented at the “Salon Similde / Kulturny Dom Lipsk” (on facebook) a collaborative room & sound installation. The exhibition gave an impression on a diversity, which was displayed in one project the artist created together. This shows an important aspect of the project “PILOTENKUECHE” in its group dynamical focus to do something as a group and to learn from each other.

Date: 30.03.17, 20:00h
Location: Salon Similde, Simildenstr. 9, 04129 Leipzig

Salon Similde / Kulturny Dom Lipsk” (on facebook) is a underground space in Leipzig and explores with its exhibition, lectures and performces a diversity of the local and international art scene.

Re-view: ‘COMMA,’ // Preview Show of the 31st Round

We had a wonderful time at the opening of the “COMMA,” show at Galerie Bipolar. Thank you to all who came. This show of the recent residents from Brazil, Belgium, Greece, Canada, Sweden, Northern Ireland, USA, UK, Malaysia, China, and South Korea presents recent results after having worked for two months in the residency. This round of artists offers a very special focus on painting, research based work, installation and photography. The works present a diversity of expression around the topics of identity, technique, data aggregation, & nature with performative & activistic approaches. Each position highlights the other, allowing for a range of narratives exploring a deeper dialogue in the broader context of contemporary art.

To all those who missed the opening, the show is still on until the 1st of April – the day of our finissage.

Open from: 25.03 – 01.04.17
Location: Galerie Bipolar, Haferkornstr. 15, D-04129 Leipzig

Impressions of the 31st round

 

These exhibitions aim to give a preview for the final presentation, which will take place in May 2017. The show will take place at the new space of PILOTENKUECHE, where all are welcome to attend the celebration of the projects tenth anniversary. Before we present the final result, it is our goal to trigger and develop a dialogue between participants & artists. The goal is to reflect upon individual positions collectives, to discover intersections between a myriad of approaches.

The PILOTENKUECHE Artist Residency is an independant art program open to artists of all nationalities. The work towards the common goal of a final group exhibition leads to intensive dialogue about individual ideas and working practices, binding the artist temporarily into a group, which leads to a longer-term network that exists even after the residency is over.

exhibition in progress: curation talks

Consultations and follow-ups are an important part of our program. Last week we discussed ideas and projects for our preview and final shows. We are keen on pushing the works and limits of our artists!

Preview Exhibitions // ‘COMMA’ 31st round / 25.03-01.04.2017

The latest shows of the recent residents from Brazil, Belgium, Greece, Canada, Sweden, Northern Ireland, USA, UK, Malaysia, China, and South Korea will present recent results after having worked for two months in the residency.

Each position highlights the other, allowing for a range of narratives exploring a deeper dialogue in the broader context of contemporary art.

“COMMA,” / preview exhibition

COMMA,

A list, a group, a pause.

Envisioning the residency as a sentence; a period in which ideas are articulated and developed, COMMA represents a halfway point. A view into a collection of varied practices, from artists midway into their stay in Leipzig.

Paralleling the comma’s function, the exhibition serves as a mechanism by which dissimilar concepts and aesthetics can be grouped into a whole whilst remaining distinct.

The works themselves act as punctuation marks; generating a series of pauses as each is viewed in turn –  creating those spaces in which communication can occur and thoughts can be formed.

Opening: 25.03.17, 18:00h
