Alumnus Collaboration: “Disco Apocalyptic” // Opening 13.03.18

Last Tuesday, we were invited to our former participants’ exhibition DISCO APOCALYPTIC in Gallery am Ratswall in Quedlinburg, where our head Martin Holz held a speech after some music by Le Petit F. Martin Schuster, Local Participant in round 33, shows painting, drawing and objects there until April 29, 2018. Some of the paintings were created during Martin’s stay at Pilotenkueche. The gallery is open from Tuesday to Friday and on Sundays from 10 am to 4 pm.

This was the 33rd Round

Last week we said goodbye to our most recent residents. We will remember the ideas and collaborative spontaneity inspired by the third group, and last round of 2017, to work at our new studios! 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.

“What Did You Expect?”// Exhibition in Progress

This week, we focused on preparing our preview exhibition. The final show of our most recent residents from the UK, Canada, Israel, Korea, China, Slovakia, the US, Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands, will present the work of nearly three months spent at the residency.

Through photography, found objects, painting, sculpture, and digital media, aesthetic and social boundaries are blurred. The 33rd round of artists is especially interested in the play of art, its capacity to contain, convey, or spur an experience. We are also pleased to incorporate the work of our local participants, Martin Schuster and Sébastien Kauffmann, as well as our guest artists, Willy Le Nalbaut and Ando Saori. 

All are welcome to attend our opening event this Saturday, December 16th.

Final Exhibition // “What Did You Expect?” of the 33rd round / 16.12 – 22.12.17

The final show of our most recent residents from the UK, Canada, Israel, Korea, China, Slovakia, the US, Spain, Belgium, and the Netherlands, will present the work of nearly three months spent at the residency.

You approach one of the disintegrated dwellings on Franz-Flemming. You do this because you have heard there will be a night of performances; perhaps you have even visited before. You are led by candle light up two flights of stairs, and peer through a partially shattered opening. You glimpse a volleyball court, a pi(nk)nic, a cluster of reeking balloons, a fools fire, a suspect living room. What did you expect?

Through photography, found objects, painting, sculpture, and digital media, aesthetic and social boundaries are blurred. The 33rd round of artists is especially interested in the play of art, its capacity to contain, convey, or spur an experience. We are also pleased to incorporate the work of our local participants, Martin Schuster and Sébastien Kauffmann, as well as our guest artists, Willy Le Nalbaut and Ando Saori.

Visiting: West Side / Andrea Garcia and Martin Schuster // 30.11.17

Last week we visited two studios in the West side of Leipzig. We began with the former pilot Andrea Garcia Vasquez (Mixed Media; USA). She uses textiles as a mimetic device, and as a basis for psycho-geographic experiments. We spoke of her process, her recent visit and exhibition in Beirut, the ways she adapts her work to an immediate context, of art as a way to aggregate and relay data, and of other artists that inspire her work.

We continued to the painting atelier of Martin Schuster, one of our Guest Artists this round, at FF15. We had the chance to look at Martin’s portfolio, ranging from parodic Bruegel inspired landscapes that incorporate the characters of more than 80 video games, to a series of cloud paintings and vivid landscapes, to his most recent experiment involving the male figure in contemporary portraiture.

Thank you Andrea and Martin for your time!

Re-View: Consultations // 10-17.11

Consultations, curation talks and follow-ups are an important part of our program. In the last weeks we have discussed the ongoing processes with individual residents of the 33rd round as well as with our guest artists and local participants, commencing the process of curating the final in-house exhibition, “What Did You Expect” held on December 16th. All are welcome to attend!

Re-View: Open Studio // 03-04.11.17

During last weekends Open Studio event, we were pleased to introduce the current round of pilots to an inquisitive public. Mid-way through the residency program, the 33rd round hasn’t stopped surprising us with their curious and playful approaches. 

Impressions

 

Our artists also explained their processes and cogitations during the first series of “Work in Dialogue” talks.  We had the chance to discuss the interrelation of themes and disciplines with the audience. Thank you to all who attended this series and expressed interest in our endeavors. We hope to see and meet you during our final exhibition, “WHAT DID YOU EXPECT?”
