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: Spinnerei Galleries & Nicolás Dupont

Last week we introduced our artist to the “Spinnerei” complex and its contemporary galleries, including Gallerie Kleindienst, EIGEN + Art, and REITER. We also had a chance to speak to the artist Nicolás Dupont about his practice and current projects. We also met his studio-mates who were kind enough to give us impromptu talks about their work. Thank you Nicolás for receiving us at your atelier!
