23.02. - 03.03.2024 Kunst Studio 16 – Archipelago

23.02.2024-03.03.2024

An archipelago is a group of islands that lie at a short distance from each other and are united into a common system. 

 

This is the metaphor used by Ukrainian artist Aglaya Nogina to describe the essence of the connection between her and her close friends. In the last 2 years, the war, like tectonic movements, has divided them into different parts of the world, but their inner unity has remained unshakable. The series of large-format portraits reflects on femininity, female strength, inner and outer beauty, and the powerful force of friendship.

 

Aglaya works with her author’s texts and the xerolithography printing technique. 

 

This project involves participation: 

 

The photo references embodied in the finished works were created directly by the models themselves. The image of their “island” emerged through a sincere dialogue about the nature of the depicted.

30.06.2023 "Open Studio" at Kunst Studio 16

30.06.2023 ab 18:30 bis 22:30 c.a.

Kunst Studio 16 has been active since 2020. We are a project space that is mostly used as an exhibition space as well as a studio and darkroom.

The exhibition space opened in October 2021, within an exchange project where the Romanian artist Andrei Ispas was invited.

Araiké Da Silva and Severin Messenbrink are actively working on site, offering workshops in analogue photography and painting/drawing.

Our focus is the district of Wedding, in particular the Soldiner Kiez, which we would like to help shape as a cultural place with artistic exchange for everyone.

24.11. - 26.11.2023 Society - Radio Thomas

24-26.11.2023

This year’s works are all about “social” media. How they bring us together, but also divide
us. What influence do they have on our society? Which media is actually social?
The first part #Gesellschaft is about exposing the bandwidth of our totality and visualising
a personal ideal, depicted in three paintings.
(Acrylic on aluminium/glass)
With the second series #Soziales Medium, the artist Radio Thomas explores the questions
experimentally: Can art be social? Can the value of a painting be separated from its
price?
6 paintings, 6 prices, 1 experiment and 1 goal. Community.
The aim is to create a common value that is much higher than the individual value of a
painting. Allegorically, the materiality of the 6 paintings (acrylic on concrete and poplar
wood) stands for our living space.

26.01. - 28.01.2024 Higher States Of Matter

26-28.01.2024

HIGHER STATES OF MATTER – 2022/2024 –

Trapped between the universal and the particular. Salt as an element of illusion, through a journey into an unknown planet.

Introduction by Paolo Nocentini – Higher states of matter is an investigation of space carried out through a change in the subject’s perspective, a revelation in which the artist finds a now transfigured reality, a space in which an apparent collection of evidence opens up to the fantastic. The attempt at reconstruction falls into phantasmatic voids where the element is created, used, buried, excavated, transported and repositioned, the living forms presenting themselves anew to the photographer by changing their appearance and now showing their dark, silent profile. The viewer is invited to enter a world where the real and the unreal intersect. The work is a meditation on the power we have to act on images (and thus memories) simultaneously, as if it were the same movement, on the power images have to change us.
The even mental landscape that “Higher states of matter” leaves to us, indeed invites us to explore, is rather a threshold between phenomenon and being – a wasted land, perhaps itself a remnant like an unlit satellite showing only its hidden face. We are then overcome by a shiver of fear or loneliness: this world could be ours, we ourselves its relicts.
