Eröffnung der Ausstellung once in a blue moon in der Klosterpresse

Rechtzeitig zum Vollmond eröffnete am 15. Juli 2016 die Gruppenausstellung once in a blue moon in der Klosterpresse. Der Titel once in a blue moon ist einer englischen Redewendung entlehnt und kennzeichnet ein selten auftretendes Ereignis. Ein „Blauer Mond“ ist ein zweiter Vollmond in einem Kalendermonat. Dieses Naturphänomen tritt nur alle 2,4 Jahre auf.

Nach Stationen in der Galeria OFF Piotrowska in Lodz und der Galeria pod Atlantami in Walbrzych feierten neun Künstlerinnen und Künstler aus Großbritannien, dem Iran, Polen, dem Senegal und Deutschland nun vom 15. bis 17. Juli 2016 die Farbe Blau in der Klosterpresse in Frankfurt.

Die Ausstellung ist in Zusammenarbeit mit der in Lodz ansässigen, privaten Kunstschule OKO  entstanden. Ziel war es die Farbe Blau mit allen Sinnen erfahrbar zu machen.

Gezeigt wurden Malereien von Aleksandra Frankowska und Susan Sluglett, Fotografien von Rodney Dee, Max Pauer, Krzysztof Ślaziński und Mamadou Touré aka Béhan sowie plastische Arbeiten von Mindy Lee, Niloufar Shiriani und von Line Krom Skulpturen aus blauem Kuchen, die zum Verzehr einluden.

Im Rahmen der Ausstellung gab es auch einen Bazar, zu dem Besucher eingeladen waren, Objekte in verschiedensten Blauschattierungen vorbeizubringen und dort zum Verkauf anzubieten.

Neun Künstlerinnen und Künstler aus Großbritannien, Polen, dem Senegal und Deutschland feiern die Farbe Blau.

Internationalen Studien zufolge ist Blau kulturübergreifend die beliebteste Farbe. Blau wird mit Vertrauen, Gelassenheit und Einheit in Verbindung gebracht. In Kunst und Populärkultur finden sich zahlreiche Beispiele, die diesen Sachverhalt belegen: Picassos Blaue Periode, Yves Kleins Monochromien in Ultramarinblau, die Europa Flagge oder die Logos multinationaler Konzerne, beispielsweise Facebook, IKEA und Nivea.

Der Titel „Once in a Blue Moon“ ist einer englischen Redewendung entlehnt und kennzeichnet ein selten auftretendes Ereignis. Ein „Blauer Mond“ ist ein Vollmond, der zwei Mal in einem Kalendermonat erscheint. Dieses Naturphänomen tritt alle 2,4 Jahre auf. Das Motiv des seltenen Ereignisses greift die Kuratorin Aline von der Assen auf Ebene der Besucherpartizipation auf. In der Regel werden Ausstellungsbesucher selten selbst zu Akteuren innerhalb der Galerie. Im Rahmen der Ausstellung gibt es einen Bazar zu dem Besucher eingeladen sind Objekte in verschiedensten Blauschattierungen vorbeizubringen und dort zum Verkauf anzubieten.

Blau steht für Eleganz und Kostbarkeit – das breite Spektrum der Farbe wird durch die verschiedenen künstlerischen Techniken ausgelotet. Gezeigt werden Malereien von Aleksandra Frankowska und Susan Sluglett, Fotografien von Rodney Dee, Max Pauer, Krzysztof Ślaziński und Mamadou Touré aka Béhan. Ausserdem plastische Arbeiten von Mindy Lee, Niloufar Shiriani und von Line Krom Skulpturen aus blauem Kuchen, die zum Verzehr einladen.

Last days of Once in a blue Moon at Galeria pod Atlantami Walbrzych

The group show ‚Once in Blue Moon’ presents works of Aleksandra Frankowska, Rodney Dee, Mindy Lee, Line Krom, Max Pauer, Niloufar Shiriani, Krzysztof Ślaziński, Susan Sluglett and Mamadou Touré aka Béhan.

The show makes the colour blue a holistic experience it addresses various senses: seeing, smelling, touching and tasting. ‚Once in Blue Moon’ at Galeria pod Atlantami opened on 3. February 2016. A great number of visitors came to revel in the colour Blue!

The title of the show picks up on an English saying describing a rarely occurring event. Despite the literal delineation the moon actually does not appear blue. A “blue moon” is a calendarical event, – a full moon occurring twice in a calendar month. This happens once in every 2,4 years. Taking the ‘rarely occurring event’ as leitmotif for the show the featured works function as gateway between art, artists and lay people. Many of the selected pieces were developed in collaboration between the artist and non-artists and invite for dialogue with the audience.

The blueness of the sky has always been object of human longing and phantasies. For Iranian artist Niloufar Shirani aircrafts represent a metaphor for the possibility to escape political strangulation and pressure. She declines the motive in various ways – in traditional painting and in interactive workshops with children.

Rodney oiabm

The British artist Rodney Dee states „The colour blue is synonymous with the spirit, the sky, the water, the immaterial and the remote. … no matter how tactile and close-up it is, the colour blue is always about distance and disembodiment.“ Often his work is assembled of many individual shots or print outs of the very same image. This technique hints on the process of production through repetition.

Mindy Lee’s paintings grow and mutate, merging attraction and repulsion into enticingly monstrous hybrids. Her  work „slips between decay and revival, where disgust and seduction intertwine through a revelling in squeamishness. Freshly served or exquisite leftovers, elements of the bodily, the abject and the grotesque beautifully fester.“ (Mindy Lee)

Polish artist Aleksandra Frankowska too reflects on family and parenthood through painting. Her recent works blend images of her childhood with pictures of raising her own son. While the images reflect on repetition of social patterns the colour blue all enwraps the sceneries into timeless distance.

Max oiabm.jpg

The snapshots of German photographer Max Pauer often convey a subtle humorous punch line. He seeks out for the funny and grotesque. His recent series “Moscow” is about the political and social ambiguities in contemporary Russia.

Mamadou oinabm.jpg

Mamadou Touré aka Béhan lives and works in Senegal. He is well known for his documentary photography and publishes his work in African and European magazines since 1989. His works ranging from panoramic landscape motives to newsworthy social and political issues.

 

“I want someone else to see the solitude, the alienation and the attraction hidden in the geometric form.” states Polish artist Krzysiek Ślaziński. He is searching for rhythm and repetition as constructive element through photography. He focuses on constructive elements of architecture which create an urban rhythm.

Sue oiabm.jpg

Susan Sluglett is a painter from Great Britain. Her blue flower still lifes create an extraordinary visual experience for the viewer: colour fields, vivid brush strokes, broken lines and nasty varnish runs, all together moon flowers, morning glories, tulips and hydrangeas vibrantly jitter in front of one’s eyes.

The German artist Line Krom presents minimalistic sculptures. „Untitled (after A. Truitt)” is a reference to the American minimalist Anne Truitt, but in contrast to the original Kroms sculptures are edible as they are made up by cake. The artworks are consumerable and will disperse in the on-going exhibition.

The works will be on display at Galeria pod Atlantami, Rynek 9
58-300 Wałbrzych until 4. March 2016. Opening hours monday to friday 10 – 16 o’clock.

Upcoming: Once in a Blue Moon at Galeria pod Atlantami

Wystawa Once in a blue moon – Srodmiescie

 

once in a blue moon walbrzych plakat_atlanty

curator: Aline von der Assen
Aleksandra Frankowska, Rodney Dee, Mindy Lee, Line Krom, Max Pauer, Niloufar Shiriani, Krzysztof Ślaziński, Susan Sluglett and Mamadou Touré aka Béhan.

 

3 lutego o godz. 17.00 Galeria pod Atlantami zaprasza na wernisaż wystawy Once in a blue moon, której motywem przewodnim jest kolor niebieski. Swoje prace (malarstwo, fotografie, rzeźbę) przedstawi dziewięciu artystów z Wielkiej Brytanii, Niemiec, Iranu, Polski i Senegalu: Rodney Dee, Mindy Lee, Susan Sluglett, Line Krom, Max Pauer, Niloufar Shirani, Aleksandra Frankowska, Krzysztof Ślaziński oraz Mamadou Touré aka Béhan. Wystawa czynna będzie do 4 marca 2016, od poniedziałku do piątku w godz. 10.00-16.00 – wstęp wolny!

Po raz pierwszy ekspozycja prezentowana była w Łodzi w Galerii OFF Piotrkowska i zorganizowana została przez pracownię OKO – placówkę edukacyjną prowadzoną przez artystów.
Tytuł Once in a blue moon odnosi się do angielskiego zwrotu, który oznacza wydarzenie pojawiające się niezwykle rzadko. W astronomii „blue moon”, czyli dodatkowa pełnia, to zjawisko, które obserwujemy raz na 2,4 lata. Nieczęsto mamy też okazję oglądać w naszym mieście prace artystów z różnych kontynentów.

Badania pokazują, że niebieski jest jednym z najbardziej lubianych kolorów. Jest kojarzony z zaufaniem, spokojem i jednością. W związku z tym posługuje się nim wiele komercyjnych marek, takich jak Facebook, IKEA czy Nivea. Pierwsze skojarzenia z wykorzystaniem niebieskiego w sztuce to “niebieski okres” Picassa i prace Yves Kleina.

Wystawa prezentuje różne wymiary niebieskiego – techniczny, metaforyczny i zmysłowy. Jeden z artystów prezentujących swoje prace na wystawie, Rodney Dee, pisze: „Kolor niebieski jest tożsamy z duchem, niebem, wiatrem, tym co niematerialne i dalekie… nieważne jak namacalny i zbliżony, kolor niebieski zawsze wydaje się odległy i niecielesny.”. Z fizycznością niebieskiego pozwoli natomiast zmierzyć się widzom inna uczestniczka – Line Krom. Artystka, która zajmuje się sztuka partycypacyjną, zaprezentuje minimalistyczną, jadalną rzeźbę. W czasie wystawy konsumowana przez odwiedzających rzeźba będzie coraz bardziej dekonstruowana. Kolejną artystkę błękit zachęca do ucieczki, zatopienia się w nim, a dla innego uczestnika wiąże się z samotnością, alienacją. Dwie artystki pochylają się w swoich pracach nad doświadczeniem macierzyństwa, a kolor niebieski nadaje pokazanym scenom charakter ponadczasowy

Last days of „Once in a blue Moon“ at Galeria OFF Piotrowska

Once in a blue Moon

12 september – 27 september 2015

///Galeria OFF Piotrkowska// ul. Piotrkowska 138/140// 90-062 Łodź, Polska///

The title of the show picks up on an English saying describing a rarely occurring event. Despite the literal delineation the moon actually does not appear blue. A “blue moon” is a calendarical event, – a full moon occurring twice in a calendar month. This happens once in every 2,4 years.

Once a year with the beginning of the winter term OKO launches it’s new program. OKO is an artist’s run art school providing art classes for people from every background and age expanding the participants experience through art and aesthetic learning. Now for the second time in a row OKO assigned me as curator to pick up fresh art works to inspire it’s students.

This year I chose the colour Blue as leitmotif for the show intending to create an aesthetical sensitivity for colour schemes. According to surveys Blue appears to be the world’s most popular colour. Therefore many brands such as Facebook, IKEA and Nivea pick up that colour scheme. Many objects we unconsciously choose for our every day surrounding have the colour blue as we associate it with elegance, harmony, peace, trust, serenity and union.

The selected works in “Once in a blue Moon” are very sensuous and often address collaboration between artists and lay people.

 

The blueness of the skies always created a desire of longing for mankind to dive into and escape. Taking planes as a metaphor for escape political strangulation and pressure Iranian artist Niloufar Shirani paints and designs plane installations on her own and in collaboration with children.

Once in a Blue Moon Rodney Dee

The British artist Rodney Dee states„The colour blue is synonymous with the spirit, the sky, the water, the immaterial and the remote. … no matter how tactile and close-up it is, the colour blue is always about distance and disembodiment.“ Often his work is assembled of many individual shots or print outs of the very same image. This technique hints on the process of production through repetition.

„mooning/ gninoom“ from „Our first years together (series)“ made in a collaboration between the British artist Mindy Lee and her son J.A.L-B. „Having a baby has radically altered my sense of self, transforming from singular, to a fused identity into a new hybrid state.” The painting technique refers to the Rorschach print, a psychological test. „This print (…) evolves from one gesture being brought together and pulled apart to create two interdependent images. The cut slices the paintings in-two to create a gap which allows the two halves to develop into individual paintings.“

Polish artist Aleksandra Frankowska too reflects on family and parenthood through painting. Her recent works blend images of her childhood with pictures of raising her own son. While the images reflect on repetition of social patterns the colour blue all enwraps the sceneries into timeless distance.

The snapshots of German photographer Max Pauer often convey a subtle humorous punch line. He seeks out for the funny and grotesque. His recent series “Moscow” is about the political and social ambiguities in contemporary Russia.

 

Mamadou Touré aka Béhan lives and works in Senegal. He is well known for his documentary photography and publishes his work in African and European magazines since 1989. His works ranging from panoramic landscape motives to newsworthy social and political issues.

“I want someone else to see the solitude, the alienation and the attraction hidden in the geometric form.” states Polish artist Krzysiek Ślaziński. He is searching for rhythm and repetition as constructive element through photography. He focuses on constructive elements of architecture which create an urban rhythm.

Susan Sluglett is a painter from Great Britain. Her blue flower still lifes create an extraordinary visual experience for the viewer: colour fields, vivid brush strokes, broken lines and nasty varnish runs, all together moon flowers, morning glories, tulips and hydrangeas vibrantly jitter in front of one’s eyes.

„Untitled (after A. Truitt)” are edible minimalistic sculptures by German artist Line Krom who deals with the supporting system of the gallery space, gallery assistants and the audience. For the duration of the show the sculptures will more and more disperse as they will be consumed by the audience.

Collaboration between artists and lay people is an integral part of this show as it is an approach of OKO to create an awareness and understanding for contemporary art. Therefor we take this engagement for aesthetical awareness, visual research and participation in arts even further and invite the visiting public to submit blue coloured everyday objects building a collection in all shades of blue. Both art works and everyday objects will be on display and for sale in the gallery for the duration of the show.

Galeria OFF Piotrwska prezentuje wystawę Once in Blue Moon. Dziewięciu artystów z

Wielkiej Brytanii, Niemiec, Iranu, Polski i Snegalu celebruje kolor niebieski.

Niebieski zdaje się być najpopularniejszym kolorem według przeprowadzanych ankiet. Jest kojarzony z zaufaniem, spokojem i jednością. W sztuce i popkulturze wiele przykładów natychmiast przychodzi na myśl: od “niebieskiego okresu” Picassa i prac Yves Klein’a po międzynarodowe marki takie jak Facebook, IKEA czy Nivea.

Aleksandra Frankowska, Rodney Dee, Mindy Lee, Line Krom, Max Pauer, Niloufar Shiriani, Krzysztof Ślaziński, Susan Sluglett oraz Mamadou Touré aka Béhan podchodzą do różnych wymiarów koloru niebieskiego w sbosób techniczny, metaforyczny i zmysłowy. Podczas gdy obrazy wpisują się w podstawy teorii koloru, fizyczność niebieskiego może być właściwie skonsumowana za pośrednictwem pokazanych rzeźb.

Tytuł Once in a blue moon odnosi się do angielskiego zwrotu, który oznacza wydarzenie pojwiające się niezwykle rzadko. W astronomii blue moon, czyli dodatkowa pełnia, to zjawisko, które obserwujemy raz na 2,4lata. Nakreślając motyw przewodni wystawy – niecodzienne wydarzenia – kuratorzy zapraszają do przynoszenia niebieskich przedmiotów, które wraz z dziełami sztuki współtworzyć będą bazar we wszystkich odcieniach niebieskiego. Prace artystów oraz przedmioty przyniesione przez odwiedzających można będzie nabyć w galerii.

Galeria OFF Piotrwska proudly presents the upcoming group show „Once in Blue Moon„. Aleksandra Frankowska, Rodney Dee, Mindy Lee, Line Krom, Max Pauer, Niloufar Shiriani, Krzysztof Ślaziński, Susan Sluglett and Mamadou Touré aka Béhan – a selection of nine artists from Great Britain, Germany, Iran, Poland and Senegal revel in the colour Blue.

International Mail Art Exhibition Fundamental Ephemeris II at the Exhibition hall of the Goethe University Frankfurt

From Tuesday July 14th to Friday July 17th 2015 the international mail art exhibition Fundamental Ephemeris II took place at the Exhibition hall of the Goethe University Frankfurt at the Department of Art Education. 30 artists from Europe, USA, Asia and Africa were invited to send their works by mail to the exhibition space. The drawings, paintings, photographs, sculptures and video works were all kept within the format of 21 x 29,7 cm (Din A 4), small enough to be sent by mail.

The exhibiting artists were Faris Barakat, Khaled Barakeh, Florence Bechu, Alexander Bühler, Marina Cerea, Linda Cunningham, Robyn Doty, Carolyn Flood, Raul Gschrey, Jutta Heun, Won-Seok Hong, Yoonjung Kim, Wolfgang Klee, Dirk Krecker, Line Krom, Kerstin Lichtblau, Llobet & Pons, Mona Löffler, Kate Mahony, Rhea O’Neill, Pirjo Pulkkinen, René Schohe, Susan Sluglett, Annegret Soltau, Mamadou Touré aka Béhan, Annika van Vugt, Friederike Walter, Max Weinberg, Bas van Wieringen and Tammy Wolsey

In 2013 my partner Jutta Heun and me initated the Mail Art Project “The Magic Cube” in 2013. Curious to find out what the informal exhibition format would have to offer in the area of globalisation and e-mail. (There will be some reflections on that topic in the catalogue Fundamental Ephemeris accompanying the exhibition. Going to be published by the end of August 2015.) In September of the very same year we organised our first mail art group show with works of 32 international befriended artists at the Bronx Art Space in New York. Friends from Europe and the Americas send their works to New York. The art works were on display from 1st to 14th of September 2013. (Further information here). Now two years later with the support of the Department of Art Education and Prof. Dr. Adelheid Sievert head of the Alumni Association of the Department Jutta Heun and me received the opportunity to organise another group show inviting art practitioners from around the globe to present their works at the Exhibition Hall of the Goethe University Frankfurt.

Like in the first show “Fundamental Ephemeris” the exhibtion’s theme is “Time” in a very broad sense. The submitted works deal with the topic in various ways. Following I will give a few examples. The relationship between the photographic image and time became quite a big aspect of this exhibition. Images in a sequence can form to a moving image which we all know from the cinema. Image in a sequence is the topic of Pirjo Pulkkinen’s work “Aika Liikeh” (2015). Faris Barakat presented excerpts of his image archive of the Israeli Westbank Barrier. He shot his photographs for eight years in a row, each year between 2005 to 2013. Khaled Barakeh withholds the image from the viewer – no one except the artist himself knows what depiction is hidden behind the cryptic code of the gallery note. An artist embracing the moment is Mamadou Touré aka Behan, who is based in Dakar while travelling through Frankfurt captured precious and fragile moments of live and joy.

The reoccurring of death in life is also an important aspect of the exhibition, Alexander Bühler quotes the “Danse Macabre” of the Mexican Day of the Dead, Carolyn Flood reflects in her very personal work on the relation between mother and daughter, which she considers as “ties which can produce the feeling that her life spreads out through generations.“ (C.F., 2015). Florence Bechu’s poetic video work “Le Dernier Soupir“ caputures the last breath.

Either as an ongoing orgiastic phantasy or terrifying never ending nightmare one could describe the works of Max Weinberg, Wolfgang Klee and Annegret Soltau.

In contrast Bas van Wieringen reflects on the postitiv aspects of the “what happend if” in his video “Possibilities”.

From different perspectives the artists Yoonjung Kim, Line Krom and Marina Cerea take repetition as an agglomeration of time into account.

René Schohe focus on the ephemeral and immediate. His work “Sound Schnecke (Sound Snail) (2015)” is sound responsive to it’s surrounding. Dirk Krecker’s retro-like typewriter images visually recall a pre-computer or maybe an early DOS-era. Both artists Dirk Krecker and René Schohe also work with sound. On Friday night René Schohe, Philipp Russeger and Peter Fey presented their sound project Messy Brothers fusing electronic avant-garde, club music and classic cello. They were followed by Dirk Krecker and his collaborator Martin Bott, who together form Monorain. They presented live-electronic. Hardware only. No presets.
F.E.II Catalogue

A catalogue featuring the art works of 60 artists presented in both shows will be available end of August 2015. Texts by Aline von der Assen and Jutta Heun.
