WELCOME NEW PILOTS // 37th Round

We are pleased to welcome the pilots of the 37th round, who will be at PILOTENKUECHE from October through December 2018. The artists hail from Japan, Germany,  the Netherlands, Austria, Canada, Italy, Israel, UK and USA. This round brings painting, installation, mixed media, drawing, performance, sound, sculpture, video, light installation, printmaking, conceptual art, and multimedia into focus.

It’s been a busy first week! The new residents have chosen studio spaces and are actively making them their own. On Thursday we took time out to do a mini tour of city center to introduce the artists their new home.

Afterwards, we went to GFZK where locaL artist Michael Hahn talked to us about his exhibition, Timing is Everything. He grew up in the former GDR and has lived in both systems. His playful use of materials and his take on time really resonated.

If the past could be changed, it would not exist. If the future could be stopped, it would not survive. If the present could be avoided, it would not prevail.” Matshona Dhliwayo

And on Friday the artists had their first collaboration; a potluck lunch. We are looking forward to spending the rest of the year with this group!

Final Exhibition // ‘Jungle Gym of Mind’ 29th round / 17 & 18.09.16

On the 17th and the 18th of September, on the occasion of the Spinnerei’s Autumn gallery tour, PILOTENKUECHE will present the final exhibition of the 29th round – ‘Jungle Gym of Mind’ as a result of the residency of our artists from USA, Brazil, Argentina, Switzerland, Sweden, Italy, South Korea & Canada after they worked for 3 months in Leipzig. On display selected works produced after an intense period of activity during which they have been sharing the same studio, in a vibrant and osmotic atmosphere of mutual exchange about different approaches to the creative process. Different perpectives will take place: A video installation devoted to create a meditative space, an inquiry on the obsessivity of the human addictions and a reflection on the recent history of the city of Leipzig through an analysis of his urban landascape, this is just a small overview of what you can see during the opening. We hope to see you all at PILOTENKUECHE!

The PILOTENKUECHE // international artist residence 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.
