Hungry Dungeon Friends Curatorial Tour

First and foremost, we’d like to thank everyone who packed the house for our Hungry Dungeon Friends vernissage at Kunstkraftwerk. The evening was one that still has people thinking nearly a week after. For those who missed it, the show is on until Sunday 1 September.

This Saturday at 3PM, our curator in residence, Colette Patterson will be giving a tour. Come find out what is behind the high quality works created by our International artists. We will also be gifted with a performance by Tom Austin.

Meanwhile, here are some images from the install and the vernissage shot by Stanley Louis, one of this round’s interns.

Hungry exchanges are often communicated through the affective fields of our bodies. The body-organism is linked to the world through a network of primal signifiers. An underworld of currents, there are some conversations that can only take place on the borders, on the edge of ourselves, of our contact with the other. The exhibition tries to circulate these borders, these textures, these interiorities, that are viscous, unformed, multiple and many times. We morph between states of consciousness, mapping unknown desires. This exhibition is the interim show of the Pilotenkeuche residents, and explores the possibility to traverse these spaces, inviting a tactile sensibility, and begs to ask what happens in a dungeon with friends?

Artist Spotlight: Undine Bandelin

In this series, we present artists currently working in our studio. Today, we introduce you to Undine Bandelin.

We visited our current Local Participant Undine in her studio close to Pilotenkueche. Born in Jena, Undine studied painting in Halle and lives in Leipzig since 2013. Currently, she collaborates with galleries in Leipzig and Erfurt. Her subject is mainly the human figure, its ways of expression via posture, movement, and physique, but her motifs digress into portraits, landscapes, and animal studies as well. Interpersonal communication plays an equally important role as much as individual traits.

Often, she begins with a screen print, transforming a photography into a template which is then modified. This requires high anatomy skills and coenesthesia, intuitive knowledge she often supports by practicing, sketching, and working over the image several times, adding colorful layers that transform the original starting point. The result is settled somewhere between dream and reality, story and status quo, a very unique take on surrealism and expressionism.
