Finding Refuge: David Dunne discusses PILOTENKUECHE

We would like to share an article from this summer’s edition of the Irish paper The Visual Artists’ News Sheet, in which David Dunne of the 29th round shares his experience throughout the residency program and his impressions of Leipzig, as well as the city’s historic context and it’s vibrant art community.

PILOTENKUECHE is pleased to give interviews, tours and visits to the broader Leipzig or international community. For tours and visits, please contact info@pilotenkueche.net.

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.

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.

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.
