Visiting: The Grass is Greener, Josef Filipp Gallery

Last week we visited two spaces at the Spinnerei: The Grass is Greener and the Josef Filipp Gallery At The Grass is Greener, we were shown ,,Schwimmer und Türmer,” an exhibition by Aachen-based artist Sigrid von Lintig.  A painter, Sigfrid von Lintig’s has been focused on swimmers for around five years.  The collection combined this recent focus on swimmers with  older projects of hers focused on towers, creating a dialogue between these themes.

Afterwards at the Josef Filipp Gallerie we were shown three photographers’ exhibitions in the wake of f/Stop photography festivalFantastic Realism by Sebastian Gögel, Bauhaus Dessau by Georg Brückmann, and Wende Zeiten by Thomas Steinert. Each artists’ work covered a specific location and theme throughout German history, as well as aspects of the local history of Leipzig.  Former Pilotenkueche curator Philipp Anders, currently co-curator of the Josef Filipp, took us around each artist’s collection, explaining the context and process behind them.

Special thanks to Sigrid von Lintig and Esther Niebel from The Grass is Greener for the tours!

Visiting: intershop interdisciplinaire, Helge Hommes and Saxana N. Schötschel // 26.04.18

Last week we visited two spaces, intershop interdisciplinaire in the Spinnerei and the studio of Saxana N. Schötschel and Helge Hommes. At textile artist Louise Walleneit’s  intershop interdisciplinaire, we saw the work of Anita Kriebel and Carsten Busse, and had the chance to discuss the exhibition with Carsten himself. The exhibition consists of conceptual multimedia installations which combine various techniques and forms of expression. We spoke to Carsten about his constructivist influences, references to Beuys, and desire to let his art speak for itself rather than explaining it. Thank you Carsten for having us!

Next we visited the studio of Helge Hommes and Saxana N. Schötschel, where we learned about not only the paintings and installation pieces, but also the political and personal motivations behind each artist’s work. We discussed the ways that Helge and Saxana’s work has evolved since meeting each other, and the pressure that comes along with the “trap” of recognition. Thank you for your time Helge and Saxana, and for giving us a copy of Helge’s manifesto!

Artist Talks II & Museum Tour

Last week, we made use of the open-museum day to investigate Leipzig’s Museum der bildenden Künste & GfZK. Finishing our day at the bau bau cafe, we discussed the differences between the way these institutions present work and involve audiences. How does the Museum blueprint enhance or limit spectatorship, and how do other institutions respond? We then continued our in-house Artist Talks, and were joined by our guest artist Matthias Garff.  Here are our plans for our upcoming exhibitions!

Visiting: Robin Zöffzig

Last week we visited the atelier of Robin Zöffzig at the Spinnerei. He gave us a generous overview of his practice, from detailing the influence of Chinese art on his methodology to his conception of contemporary religious iconography. We also discussed the history of German art and the fine art academic system. We are looking forward to further working with Robin (our guest artist) during our Final show at our studios!
