Visiting: Spinnerei Galleries & Nicolás Dupont

Last week we introduced our artist to the “Spinnerei” complex and its contemporary galleries, including Gallerie Kleindienst, EIGEN + Art, and REITER. We also had a chance to speak to the artist Nicolás Dupont about his practice and current projects. We also met his studio-mates who were kind enough to give us impromptu talks about their work. Thank you Nicolás for receiving us at your atelier!

Visiting: Lucino Veo & Natalia Kalicki

Last Thursday we visited the neighboring studios of Franz-Flemming Str. 15, to visit the ateliers of Lucino Veo and our own Natalia Kalicki. The two previously studied at Concordia University, in Montreal, Canada, and after adventures in Finland and Italy, are currently Leipzig based.

Veo has cultivated a fascination for old master painting techniques. His intensive process reflects a careful investigation of bygone methodologies, and the relation of that methodology to sometimes whimsical, often fantastical, yet distinctly lucid themes. Kalicki, while also focused on oil painting, approaches the material with Dionysian zeal, and is absorbed by concepts of obsession, consummation and self-consumption, electing a jolly grotesqueness to best epitomize the human kingdom. 

PILOTENKUECHE is regularly visiting artists, galleries and museums with its residents to introduce them to the local art scene and – moreover – to create an exchange between our international guests and the practitioners based in Leipzig.

Visiting: Museum der Bildenden Künste

This week we visited the fine art museum in Leipzig, and had the chance to view the permanent collections as well as the newer Klinger and Lüpertz pieces, among others. Invigorated by a lively afternoon, we finished the day by brainstorming about our upcoming shows.

Re-view: ‘GOODBYE HORSES’ / 14.01.17

Here are some impressions of the final show of the recent residents from USA, Germany, Chile, France, Canada, Poland, UK, Ireland & the Netherlands with the results after they worked 3 months in the residency. After several preview shows the exhibition gave a selection of the previous works as well as new ones of this productive group of artists. They offered a very special focus on abstract painting, performance, drawing and science art. The works are presenting a diversity of expression around the topics of identity, technic & nature with performative & activism approaches. Each position lighted from its own perpective onto contentual interfaces to light them out from diverse points of view. This was the last show, which will take place on the current space. During the show the group of artists went in the costumes of the performance “popessy” (idea and costumes by Jacqueline Van De Geer) to put a spot onto the exhibition and a sign for the future of the project.

Final Exhibition // ‘GOODBYE HORSES’ 30th round / 13 & 14.01.17

The final show of the recent residents from USA, Germany, Chile, France, Canada, Poland, UK, Ireland & the Netherlands will present the results after they worked 3 months in the residency. After several preview shows the exhibition will give a selection of the previous works as well as new ones of this productive group of artists. They offer a very special focus on abstract painting, performance, drawing and science art. The works are presenting a diversity of expression around the topics of identity, technic & nature with performative & activism approaches.

We hope to see you there to enjoy all the art and to say goodbye to the old space and hello the future.

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

Impressions of the 30th round

Visiting: Fernando Davis & Christiane Bruhns

Last week we visited the studio of the passionate and talented artist Chrisitiane Bruhns. She talked with us about the creative and the compositional process of her abstract paintings. Her new studiomate Fernando Davis who was a pilot of the 29th round presented his works too.

After that we turned back to our studio and celebrated christmas. Many thanks Christiane and all the best Fernando!

Re-view: preview shows of the 30th round

Here are some impressions of the preview shows of the recent residents from USA, Germany, Chile, France, Canada, Poland, UK, Japan, Ireland & the Netherlands . This round of artists offers a very special focus on abstract painting, performance, drawing and science art. The works are presenting a diversity of expression around the topics of identity, technic & nature with performative & activism approaches. Each position lights from its own perpective onto contentual interfaces to light them out from diverse points of view.

The exhibitions aimed to give a preview for the final presentation which will take place in January 2017 and to develop a dialoque between interests & artists. The goal is to overthink and to reflect the own position as well as the results of the others to discover interfaces and common topics.

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