A Union of Voices

 

13th December – 18th January PV Friday 12th 6-9pm

The Lord Nelson

66 Canon Beck Road London
Rotherhithe
London

SE16 7DN

A Union of Voices unites a group of 108 artists through a framework that is structured around the concept of “community”. The exhibition explores the human and primeval desire to want to belong to something greater than one’s self. This wanting to belong manifests itself within all communities, growing, responding and developing, uniting all within it. For the exhibition each artist has been asked to responded to the concept, bringing their own set of values and asserting their own position and identity.

At the exhibitions core is the concept of building a community and this is reflected in the process of selecting each artist, as well as what each artist will be asked to submit. The curatorial approach creates a foundation group of 54 artists to form the basis of the community, who then each propose one other artist to participate in the exhibition, thus expanding and ultimately doubling the community over a geographically broad area.

The book was chosen because of its role as an effective tool of communication and because of the undiscriminating nature of its content. This allows all participants to freely reflect the depth of their artistic practices and as a whole create a dynamic and artistically varied library.

A Union of Voices proposes a greater shared function beyond that of the individual. The nature of the chain coupled with the ethos behind the book allows for a transparent manufactured community. Consequently, the library allows an engagement with the notions of the individual existing within a community.

12. November - 11. Januar

Exhibition at the Gutenberg Museum Mainz

Designpreis Rheinland-Pfalz 2014 for

LU

LU steht für Ludwigshafen und Ludwigshafen für alle Städte dieser Art. Städte ohne das symmetrische Gesicht der Schönheit und ohne offensichtliche Glücksversprechen. Städte, an denen man ohne Bedauern vielspurig vorüberfährt, auf direktem Weg zum Ort der Wahl.
Es braucht indes kein Ziel, um anzukommen und deshalb will dieses Buch die Ausfahrt nehmen, hinein nach Ludwigshafen, hinein ins Herz der Stadt. Es stattet ihr einen Besuch ab, der es in sich hat, weil er Fragen stellt, Antworten sucht und Inspiration findet. Philosophen, Schriftsteller, Architekten, Künstler, Journalisten und Dichter porträtieren die Stadt von innen und von außen, begegnen ihr als Reisende, Ortskenner, Ausländer oder Liebhaber. Kurzweilig und unterhaltsam erzählen sie in Glossen, Essays, Reportagen, Zeichnungen, Fotostrecken und Kurzgeschichten von ihren Erlebnissen - dem was ist und auch dem, was sein könnte. Sie zeigen, dass Inspiration im Alltag entsteht und dass sie diesen Alltag mit Leben, Seele, Sinn und Geist versorgt. Was also sucht ein Pariser in Ludwigshafen und warum fährt eine Berlinerin zum Tangotanzen an den Rhein? Was bleibt von einer Stadt, wenn wir sie nicht sehen können, weshalb ist es eine Chance David und nicht Goliath zu sein und womit sorgt Ernst Bloch für gute Aussichten? Das Wesen und die Möglichkeiten einer Stadt, sie erschließen sich vor allem zwischen den Zeilen – das gilt in Ludwigshafen wie überall.

Mit Beiträgen von: Ernst Bloch, Nicola Borgmann, Markus Clauer, Theodor Fontane, Max Frisch, Benoît Gausseron, Dagmar Gilcher, Friedhelm Hengsbach, Nicole Heß, Andra Joeckle, Junges-Spiel-Theater (JUST), Johannes Klaus, Julia Kronberg, Klaus Kufeld, Tim Gerhard Mayer, Hasan Özdemir, Jan-Philipp Possmann, Stephan Röthele, Norbert Schick, Lisa-Maria Seydlitz, Dorothee Schumacher, Patrik Stäbler, Olga Tsitiridou, Karsten Umlauf, Helmut van der Buchholz, Markus Vater, Konstantin Voit, Laurence von der Weid.

Invitation to the exhibition opening with book presentation on September 26

“A man walks into a bar. . . .”—the unmistakable prelude to a joke. This remarkable collection of artist’s postcards of the same name could not have a more fitting title. Drawn, written, or stuck together, postcards featuring the contributing artists’ favorite jokes make up the unique content of this amusing small volume that will soon be published by Hatje Cantz. The 101 postcards are addressed to the fictitious figure Pepe Nietnagel—a pseudonym that prompts us to pick up our ears: is it the rascal from the popular series of German “Pauker” films from the late sixties and early seventies? As it happens, there is indeed something mischievous about this undertaking. The two editors, Franzsika and Johannes Sperling, wrote to selected artists, and about one hundred of them responded to their request and mailed them small works of art. Besides word- and joke-savvy contemporaries such as Erwin Wurm, Lawrence Weiner, Nedko Solakov, or Ragnar Kjartansson, to our great delight, protagonists such as John Baldessari, Jonathan Meese, Daniel Richter, and Karin Sander also participated in the playful game.

The first presentation of this publication will take place on September 26, 2014 in Mainburg where the whole collection of postcards will be exhibited.

This occasion also marks the launch of the collector's edition of the book that contains one original postcard per copy.

Mainburg in Lower Bavaria is the place where the postcards have been sent to over the past three years.

» Kultur im Überblick » Kunst Artikel vom 06. Juni 2014


Sven Sachsalbers „hands“ im Museion

 

Wenn es um die eigene Selbstdarstellung geht, kommt der Verein „Hands“ mit Sitz in Bozen mit einem einfachen Satz aus: „Wir sind ein Verein, der sich mit der Information, Therapie und Rehabilitation von Menschen mit Alkohol- und Medikamentenproblemen befasst“. hands ist auch der Titel einer Ausstellung des in Schlanders geborenen Künstlers Sven Sachsalber, die am 12. Juni um 20 Uhr im Museion Project Room eröffnet wird.



Der Bezug auf die Organisation, die seit drei Jahrzehnten Suchtkranke in Südtirol kostenlos und anonym behandelt und berät, ist kein Zufall. Sven Sachsalber zeigt im Project Room Bruchstücke seiner Familiengeschichte, die sich wie ein Puzzle zu einem komplexen Bild zusammenfügen, in dessen Zentrum das Verhältnis des Künstlers zu seinem Vater Markus Licata steht, der im „Hands“-Ambulatorium am Hadriansplatz in Bozen betreut wird.


Bei dieser Operation, die nostalgische Larmoyanz bewusst vermeidet, bleiben die Wände des Ausstellungsraums im Erdgeschoss leer. Der Besucher muss hier einen weiteren Raum betreten, den der Künstler im Project Room eingerichtet hat. Der Zugang zu diesem Zimmer, das von außen ein Rohbau zu sein scheint, ist nur durch eine schmale Öffnung möglich, die Eintretende dazu zwingt, sich zu bücken. Wer sich in diesem engen Rückzugsort befindet, steht dann vor sauber verputzten weißen Wänden, die eine dicht gehängte Bildersammlung tragen. Sven Sachsalber hat seinen Vater gebeten, Füchse auf Leinwänden zu portraitieren. Ein Rückblick in die Kindheit: In seiner Familie wurde der Künstler aufgrund seiner roten Haare immer mit einem Fuchs verglichen. Darüber hinaus stehen zahlreiche Gemälde, die der Vater im Verlauf seiner Therapie bei Hands malte, im Dialog mit fotografischen Arbeiten, die der Sohn für dieses Projekt in seiner Wahlheimat New York produziert hat.


Diese Konstellation ergänzt eine Intervention des in London lebenden Künstlers Markus Vater (1970, Düsseldorf), der in der Ausstellung mit einem Text und einem Portrait von Markus Licata vertreten ist. Sven Sachsalber betreibt hier ein Wortspiel, das den Vornamen (Markus) und den Nachnamen (Vater) des Künstlerkollegen mit einem „doppelten Boden“ ausstattet. Diese Ausstellung fügt sich in eine Programmlinie des Projekt Room ein, die unveröffentlichte Arbeiten einheimischer Künstlerinnen und Künstler vorstellt, die inzwischen jenseits der Südtiroler Landesgrenzen leben und arbeiten, wie etwa Vera Comploj, Sonia Laimer, Leander Schwazer und Gabriela Oberkofler. Das Museion wird damit zu einer Plattform, die zu Experimenten in einem institutionellen Rahmen einlädt. Der Project Room im Erdgeschoss des Museion ist gratis zugänglich.
Sven Sachsalber (1987, Schlanders) lebt und arbeitet in New York und Laatsch. Er studierte am Royal College of Art in London und nahm am International Studio and Curatorial Program in New York teil. 2013 wurde er mit dem New York Prize ausgezeichnet. Einzelausstellungen (Auswahl): „You are not alone“, Gallery So, London (2013); „Movin´Image“ (mit Luuk Schroeder), Galerie Rianne Groen, Rotterdam (2013); „Liftboys“ (mit Peter Holzknecht, Performance), Transart 13, Bozen (2013); „Pillen gegen die Traurigkeit“ (Performance), Schlanders (2012). Gruppenausstellungen (Auswahl): „Surprise and Reprise”, Ram Foundation, Rotterdam (2014); „BYOP”, ISCP, New York (2014); „Der Raum der Etablierung....”, Kunstraum Super, Wien (2013); „Black Mariah”, Granary Building, London (2013); „Drawing-Quote”, Pigna Project Space, Rom.
Anlässlich der Ausstellung von Sven Sachsalber im Project Room verlegt das Museion eine Publikation mit Texten von Letizia Ragaglia, Frida Carazzato und Markus Licata (ita /dt/ eng).

DIE WÖRTER IN DEN VIER ECKEN

Kunstbunker Nürnberg
Mit Arbeiten von Natalie Czech, Friederike Feldmann, Uwe Henneken, Irène Hug,
Stefan Marx, Anna Meyer, Gunter Reski, Wawrzyniec Tokarski, Markus Vater.
Zusammengestellt von Gunter Reski

Zur Eröffnung der Ausstellung am Mittwoch 05.06.2013 um 19:30 Uhr
laden wir Sie und Ihre Freunde herzlich ein

Die Ausstellung „Die Wörter in den vier Ecken“ zeigt neun zeitgenössische Positionen, die explizit mit der Verbindung von Wörtern und Bildern als Kunst arbeiten. Auch wenn die Kombination von Text- und Bildsprachlichkeiten (als zweier Mitteilungsebenen) auf einem Bildträger oder medialen Format eher alltäglich klingt, ist in der Bildenden Kunst dieses mediale Crossover keinesfalls so gang und gäbe, wie es beispielsweise in der Werbung üblich ist. Auf Anhieb scheint hier eine verquere Trennung zwi–schen sogenannten konzeptionellen und bildnerischen Arbeitsweisen ein möglicher Grund zu sein. Oder im Falle verschiedener tradierter Malereibegriffe erscheinen typographische wie schriftliche Bildanteile als Bedrohung illuminativer Kontemplationsmodelle. In diesem Sinne könnte man auch sagen, haben sich insbesondere große Teile der bildgebenden Kunst anscheinend für einen fortdauernden `Stumm–filmstatus´ entschieden. Demgegenüber liefert die Ausstellung einen kleinen ausgesuchten Überblick innerhalb medialer Konstellationen, die die beschriebenen Möglichkeiten, beide menschliche Hirnhälften synchron anzusprechen, nicht außer Acht lassen wollen.

Der gemeinsame Nenner der Ausstellung wird zum kleineren Teil von ausstellenden Künstlern in ver–gleichbarer oder auch konkurrierender Weise bespielt. Irène Hug, Gunter Reski und Wawrzyniec Tokarski arbeiten mit slogan- und schlagzeilenartigen Versatzstücken im Bild- und Installationsraum. Irène Hugs Arbeiten agieren zwischen Sprachirritation, entfremdeter konkreter Poesie und skulpturaler Wortzersetzung. Die zerbrochene Signifikantenkette wird hier durch wortwörtliche Objektwerdung einzelner Begriffe noch weiter fragmentiert. Wawrzyniec Tokarskis Displaymalerei strotzt nur so vor Botschaften und Willen zum Allover-Statement. Scheinbar. Versiert und unterhaltsam führt er (mit einer Art semiotischer Messagemassage) per Ambivalenzen und Doublebindings die fließenden Grenzen zwischen überkommenem Agitprop und und aktueller Werbehysterie vor.

Der größere Teil der Ausstellungsteilnehmer operiert mit Bild- und Textmomenten in sehr unterschiedlichen Formatierungen. Friederike Feldmann untersucht sinnfreie handschriftliche Anmutungen auf ikono–graphische Präsenzen. Ein psychographischer Duktus im entleerten Sprachgewand erinnert auch an Unmengen nicht mehr geschriebener Briefe heutzutage. In den gezeigten Bildern Uwe Hennekens (er ist eher für eine tragikkomisch neoromantische Bildwelt bekannt geworden) werden menschliche Kernbegriffe durch Bildbestandteile wie Vögel oder Bäume befremdlich flüchtig in Szene gesetzt. Anna Meyers Installationen und ihre „Nachkrisenmalerei“ bewegen sich kontrovers in einem vernachlässigten politischen wie kunstgeschichtlichen Agitationsraum („Futurefeminismus“). Eine humorig wie traurig verzaubernde Poesie wird bei Markus Vater in wenigen treffenden Zeilen durch zeichnerische Bildanteile multipliziert („Der Mann veränderte seine Wesensform! Er wird eine Verspätung.“). Zwischen Protestbanner und Flyer-Arte Povera bilden Stefan Marx’ großzügige wie leichtfüßige Bildarrangements eine bisher selten vertretene Stilposition. Jeder Text enthält unweigerlich eine Vielzahl möglicher anderer Texte. Was üblicherweise auf Subtexte, Rhetorik und weit gestreute Lesweisen zutrifft, nimmt Natalie Czech wortwörtlich, wenn sie in unterschiedlichsten Druckerzeugnissen per handschriftlicher Markierung darin verborgene Gedichte der Weltliteratur ausfindig macht. Werden diese möglicherweise unterschwellig von uns selbst unbemerkt auch immer mit gelesen?

An important rule one learns in basic first aid training and lifesaving: the casualties that scream for attention are not the priority in the first instance, no matter how desperate their cries. You go to the silent ones first.

The facility with which art institution press releases, exhibition concepts, curator's statements deploy the concept and language of 'urgency' can recall the strident shrieks of a weather presenter forecasting heavy rains in Wales and the drama of an everything-must-go sale in the high street.

This 'urgency', and seeking its bestowment onto the art object itself, becomes a theatrical framing device. As a visibility strategy, it seeks to raise a consumer craving for action and intervention and to fulfill this with a presentation of artworks. Bent on drama, it scripts the parameters in which these works are to operate. As a call for action, it sucks the lifeblood out of the social and political context to spit out lymphatic dogmatic rhetoric.

news of the world space in Deptford exists as a 'curator's studio', allowing works to be looked at in an R+D / process setting.

Each Friday and Saturday over the coming weeks, one new artist is present in the space. Under the curator’s duty of care, the artist on an examination bench inhabits the gallery alongside their work, underlying the visitors’ part in the diagnosis of observable trauma, anxiety, acute failure, unstable critical condition or fitness for purpose.

Rather than summoning 'urgency', Intensive Care refers to some of the procedures and mechanisms which can deal with emergency; aligning in one space the artist, the work, the curator, the visitor, to take the time and foster calm, focus, expertise, dialogue and unity of purpose in the truthful assessment of the artwork.

Is 'urgency' a symptom of a much deeper malaise affecting the curator patient?

'The possibility of physical and mental collapse is very real now... but collapse is out of the question; as a solution or even a cheap alternative, it is unacceptable. Indeed. This is the moment of truth, that fine and fateful line between control and disaster' Hunter S Thompson


GETTING THERE: From London Bridge, Deptford train every 10 mins, takes 6 mins. The gallery is across the road from Deptford station.
From east London, take the overground to New Cross, and 8 mins walk.

Wann kommt Immendorff?"

Markus Vater, Michael Stevenson, Cornelius Quabeck und Ina Bruchlos

"The hunter" , Markus Vater, 225cm x 180cm, Acrylic on Canvas, 2007

Kornhäuschen freut sich, die Ausstellung “Wann kommt Immendorff?” zu zeigen. Anlass ist die Ausstellung “Affentheater” in der Kunsthalle Aschaffenburg mit Arbeiten von Jörg Immendorff, die am gleichen Abend eröffnet wird. Die vom Kornhäuschen eingeladenen Künstler nehmen auf unterschiedliche Weise Bezug auf Immendorff.

“Wann kommt Immendorff?” ist der Titel einer Arbeit von Cornelius Quabeck. Die Bilderserie entstand 1998, als Quabeck an der Kunstakademie in Düsseldorf als Tutor für Immendorff arbeitete. “Wann kommt Immendorff?” war die Frage der Studenten und Quabeck malte die Termine auf kleine Tafeln, die er an die Ateliertür hängte. Immendorff hakte die Termin-Bilder ab, wenn er tatsächlich zur Klassenbesprechung kam. Auf der Bildrückseite signierten beide Künstler. 
Michael Stevenson zeigt Arbeiten aus seiner Serie “Revolution in New Zealand”. "The beach is boring", "I hate cheap champagne" oder "I hate weak artists" steht auf den Postern von Stevenson. Es sind Aussagen Immendorffs, die er 1987 während eines Künstleraufenthalts in Neuseeland machte und die von der Boulevardpresse des Landes aufgegriffen wurden. Anstatt sich von der spektakulären Landschaft in Neuseeland inspirieren zu lassen, verbrachte der Künstler viel Zeit in Nachtklubs, machte Schlagzeilen wegen seines Drogenkonsums und seiner Vorliebe für Champagner und Frauen. Neuseeland steckte zu dieser Zeit in einer schweren Wirtschaftskrise, der ausschweifende Lebensstil von Immendorff erregte viel Unmut.
Das Gemälde von Markus Vater “The Hunter” zeigt einen gehetzten Mann mit Affengesicht, in der Hand hält er einen Knüppel. Der Affe erscheint wiederholt im Werk von Jörg Immendorff und wurde zu seinem Markenzeichen. "Für mich war und ist der Affe einfach ein zweites Ich. Symbol für die Ambivalenz der Künstlerexistenz, der Überzeugung und Selbstzweifel", so Immendorff. "Die Wahrheit ist nur eine unentdeckbare Lüge" ist der Titel einer Installation von Vater, deren Materialien Spiegel und Puderzucker für sich sprechen.  
Die Arbeit von Ina Bruchlos "Das Malerschweinchen malt sich selbst und Deutschland" zeigt ein Meerschweinchen, das an einer Staffelei mit Deutschlandfähnchen sitzt und Jörg Immendorff mit Krone malt. Als Studentin wurde Bruchlos immer wieder von ihrem Professor darauf hingewiesen, sich mit der Bilderserie Café Deutschland auseinanderzusetzen. “Ehrlich gesagt mochte ich noch nie, wie Immendorff Menschen malte. Ich dachte auch kurz an Affen, aber auch die hat er nicht hübsch gemalt.”

A Videoinstallation of "At the end of the world......."

..."Markus Vater’s series of canvases, entitled ‘At The End of the
World’,
offer tragi-comic, stream-of-consciousness snapshots of what will
happen
when the apocalypse dawns. Vater possesses a protean appetite for
committing
the oldest sins in the newest kinds of ways, reinventing genres and
painterly styles through a freewheeling imagination and unlikely comic
inversions. Rather than adapting historical ways of picture-making
however,
Vater adapts the oldest, most ‘universal’ and ‘profound’ subject-matter
to
his own ends. Working across every conceivable medium, Vater’s
multi-faceted
oeuvre is, like Martin Kippenberger’s, united only by the artist’s
quixotic
take on the world…………" Alistar Robinson

LINIE LINE LINEA

Contemporary Drawing

11 February – 16 May 2010

Drawing has always played a role in the discussion of art, but especially in recent years, its international significance has become particularly visible as a global pictorial language. The exhibition Linie Line Linea contains groups of works by 20 artists, men and women who live and work in Germany. Concentrating on line and surface, pencil and paper, the spectrum ranges from improvisational movement to a complex picture of the world, from individual experience to everyday culture, from concept to reporting. Following the premiere in Bonn, the show will travel throughout several continents. Participants are: Irina Baschlakow, Marc Brandenburg, Monika Brandmeier, Fernando Bryce, Marcel van Eeden, Gerhard Faulhaber, Katharina Hinsberg, Pauline Kraneis, Pia Linz, Christiane Löhr, Theresa Lükenwerk, Nanne Meyer, Thomas Müller, Christian Pilz, Alexander Roob, Malte Spohr, German Stegmaier, Markus Vater, Jorinde Voigt and Ralf Ziervogel. 
This is an exhibition of the Institut für Auslandsbeziehungen (Institute for Foreign Cultural Relations) in conjunction with the Kunstmuseum Bonn.

Pamphile Show

A pictorial novel in pieces

The Pamphile Show presents 31 international painters. The group show is like an open instructed collaborative work with a turn of superstructure. Starting point is the novel “Capitan Pamphile” by Alexandre Dumas published 1839. Especially the end of this book can be read as a current description about running economical crises and crashs that still are happening right now. A significant selection of particulary visual scenes in the novel should become traceable, so one might get parts of the storyline, even though this might be hardly possible. The multitude of different authorships here may induce a soft touch of `Gesamtkunstwerk´. Broken handmade literary film or trailer about the book are other keywords to describe the idea of this group show. In the last years narration or storytelling techniques had been one main focus in contemporary art. Here now the show tries to turn those singular spot-like narrative moments into an extended and
collaborative format. Further on a term like ´pictorial novel´ (Charlotte Salomon, William Hogarth, Pushwagner) was essential for developing the Pamphile Show.

‘A show about things that are there because they are not there, like a shadow or death’

In the Interim | Part One of Three |29 May – 4 July 2009| open Thursday to Saturday 12.00 h - 18.00 h

 

‘In the Interim’ is a series of London based exhibitions hosted by Amsterdam gallery ZINGERpresents, prior to moving into its new Amsterdam exhibition space. From its temporary pop-up location at 92 Hoxton Street, London, the gallery will be hosting a cycle of three exhibitions. The series commences with ‘A show about things that are there because they are not there, like a shadow or like death’ by London based German artist Markus Vater.

To illustrate the parameters of his practice and to divulge the much-needed key to unlock the simultaneously courteous as well as rebellious universe behind the objects that conjure up this multi-facetted installation for this exhibition the artist says the following;

‘The fact that the growth of an embryo is much more about precise negation than precise creation was ignored by the artist. He made things. The conditions of the making stayed unclear. He had bought a cd which was lying on a table. It had the title " Shakin Stevens : Listen now" . Beside the cd lay a remote control. A bit of stardust was sticking to its rubber buttons. It was made in Korea. The young man who had assembled it, rested his hand on the warm tank of a motorbike and observed how the moon disappeared behind a building. The building had given an architect nightmares for more than two weeks. In his dreams the architect stood on a wooden plank that vibrated like an electric toothbrush. The plank was looming over a very still abyss. It was obvious that you couldn't compare dream wood with wake wood, thought the architect and pushed his hand beneath his cushion. The cushion was filled with feathers of a goose, which had been served at a Christmas dinner where nobody had spoken a word. The reasons for this speechlessness were lying far back and originated in the suicide of the mother, which had been kept secret for years.’ (M.V.)

Booklaunch

at Studio Voltaire in London 23rd of May from 7pm

"Black Mountain"

Markus Vater

"There are people who are unable to lie. Others are able to lie enthusiastically and convincingly. And others are not really able to lie but do it anyway, hopelessly and without any talent. Under certain circumstances, i.e. faithfully complying with the logic of their own lives, only the second group feels the pulse of truth and is thus able to adapt to the fickle curve of life with almost geometrical precision." Andrei Tarkowsky

We are pleased to announce the launch of the monograph Black Mountain by Markus Vater. Black Mountain was published by Kettler-Verlag/Boenen in correlation with a show at the Museum Baden in Solingen-Germany . It features texts by Friedrich Heubach, Andrei Tarkowsky, Paul Watzlawik , Sandra Danicke and Johannes Stahl. The book is bilingual German/English. The launch will be accompanied by an evening of film, music and drinks.
