Watchlist Artist: Stijn Ank  
by
2/13/14 Posted 2/13/14

Galerie Michael Janssen Berlin is proud to present its first solo exhibition with Belgian artist Stijn Ank (b. 1977) entitled diSTANCES. Ank’s body of work can be considered as an extensive research into the relationship between matter and void and the various ways in which contemporary sculpture can be defined in relation to its surrounding space. Because of the hypothetical and non-referential nature of his pieces Ank simply numbers them chronologically, avoiding giving them titles and... [more]

Sommer & Kohl are happy to present the first solo exhibition of new works by Swiss artist Vanessa Billy (*1978 in Geneva, Switzerland). The exhibition Dear energy can be understood as a homage to energy, how we can get it through the transformation of matter, whether it be food, gas, petrol or water, all of which are constantly available to us. In every household there are countless appliances that need electricity to function. The energy consumption when sending an email amounts to the same as... [more]

20130923130056-090rep Primary Forms with a Bold Function  
by
Eva Fidjeland, Jane Walker at Galerie Stexwig September 15th, 2013 - October 27th, 2013
Posted 9/23/13

I like the slight melancholy mystery of these images. In general, the softened color palette and contrast evokes a faded memory, but the primary forms have a bold function. `Evolution´ employs a primordial form, spiraling up out of the water like a mythic sea creature. I also see the faintly grainy quality and washed out magenta tonality as harkening back to old photographic documentary film, though I`m unsure of the media/process employed here. I find the vertical orientation is also unexpected fo... [more]

20130801220611-mvg-0089 Monique van Genderen: Abstract Works  
by
Anders Kjellesvik, J. Ariadhitya Pramuhendra, Monique van Genderen at Galerie Michael Janssen August 17th, 2013 - September 7th, 2013
Posted 8/19/13

Through abstraction the artist explores concepts that dominate modern physics, namely non-linear time and dimensionality, but rather than playing out in the vacuum of space, the forces triggered are human and visceral–exploring human perception of time and space. Title-less compositions, each with the same size and orientation hand as half of the current exhibition at Galerie Michael Janssen. The wooden bench in the middle of the room is a work from Monique van Genderen (2007) , as well, mad... [more]

by
Janes Haid-Schmallenberg at Galerie Villa Köppe September 27th, 2013 - October 26th, 2013
Posted 8/16/13

Elf Sekunden, das sind etwa drei Atemzüge, verbringt ein durchschnittlicher Betrachter angeblich vor einem Kunstwerk. Um die Aufmerksamkeit des Betrachters zu vergrößern, muss ein Ausstellungsexponat eine stärkere Wirkkraft entfalten. Wie dies gelingt, zeigen Janes Haid-Schmallenbergs Figurenbilder, meist großformatig und in Öl ausgeführt. Sie wirken durch ihre subjektive, mehrdeutige, bisweilen rätselhafte und assoziative Aussagekraft, hervorgerufen durch The... [more]

by
Jennifer Oellerich, Marc Schmitz at Galerie Seitz & Partner April 26th, 2013 - June 5th, 2013
Posted 7/16/13

Wasser, das vom Himmel fällt, ist Jennifer Oellerichs Obsession – ganz gleich, ob als milder Mairegen, hitziges Sommergewitter oder trostloser Graupelschauer. „Am 6. Regentag“ (2900 Euro) heißt eine neue Skulptur, die einzige mehrdimensionale Arbeit der Ausstellung „Avalanche“. Dafür hat sie Holzplatten mit Bitumen bestrichen und dem Regen ausgesetzt. So entstanden auf dem nachgiebigen Material Spuren, die an Nasa-Aufnahmen von Mondlandschaften erinner... [more]
