"Atoria" for Cup by Cup, 2018"Atoria" for Cup by Cup, 2018

Herzliche Einladung zur Eröffnung CUP BY CUP in die Praline Leipzig im Rahmen des “Lindenow” für Freitag, 05.10.2018, 18.00 Uhr. Mein Beitrag “Atoria – And The Missing ‘S'” ist Teil der Ausstellung.

“Dem Hotel “Astoria” in der Leipziger Innenstadt fehlt seit Jahren das “s” im Schriftzug auf dem Dach des Hotels. Bis 1996 war das Hotel in Betrieb, seit August 2018 wird es saniert. Leerstellen und Lücken zu schließen, prägen die aktuelle stadtplanerische Entwicklung Leipzigs. Ich verstehe meinen Beitrag “Atoria” zur Ausstellung CUP BY CUP als Würdigung an den Zwischenraum und die Zeit der Zwischennutzung; die Neuinterpretation und Umdeutung eines Ortes. Unter Verwendung des inzwischen demontierten und intakten Neon-Schriftzugs am Eingangsportal des Hotels, ist ein neues, eigenständiges Signet entstanden.”

Melt Festival 2018, Ferropolis, Germany, 13.07.-15.07.2018There are 20 years between these collection of Polaroids. Ferropolis (located in Saxony-Anhalt, close to Dessau) still under construction in 1998 (below) and during the Melt Festival in July 2018. The material is part of my long-term photographic observation of a region which was once the biggest industrial area in East Germany. However, I didn’t worked with Polaroid since a long time and it just felt appropriate to use the same technology, consequently the same visual language than 20 years ago.

Sylt1Just back from a research trip to the biggest of the North Frisian Islands: Sylt. Invited by the local Kunstverein, I will work on a new project within the next year. Focusing on the representation of nature and landscape through photography – as a first step of the project I will especially investigate images from the 1950s and 1960s, which pictured the Island as a place for desire and myth. The results will be exhibited next year.

“Scenery And Nature’s Objects” – a group exhibition with Alexander Grennigloh, Jan Stradtmann, Shigeru Takato and Ann Katrin Warter at AFF Gallery in Berlin. I will show part of my series Third Nature.

Location: AFF Gallery, Kochhannstraße 14, 10249 Berlin
Opening: 18th May 2018, 7 pm
Exhibition dates: 19th May – 10th June 2018, Sat – Sun, 3 pm – 6 pm

Participating artists: Alexander Grennigloh / Jan Stradtmann / Shigeru Takato / Ann Katrin Warter

“The exhibition explores the difference between nature and staged landscape. It shows the naturalness, domestication and regulation of sceneries and points to the problem of mediated nature. The concept of nature has become problematic – it is often impossible to speak of a presupposed nature, rather how it has been replaced by a second, more perfect one. Nature is the model from which human art and technology is derived as an imitation.” (text: AFF gallery)
