STUDIO VISITS Hajime Mizutani at Künstlerhaus Bethanien

A white space. The morning light has just passed. Atmospheric sounds of Brian Eno’s New Space Music fill the room. The sound of boiling water. Hajime Mizutani, a current Kuenstlerhaus Bethanien resident, welcomes me to his studio and invites me to a Japanese oolong tea. His studio is very clean. There are no brushes, no paint stains or any traces of creative artist chaos.

INTRODUCING Maria Thurn und Taxis

Her "beings" often have a totem-like quality, something fine and dense but also chaotic, wild and well yes, intangible. They are unmistakably hers. I love imagining them as creatures gathering around her when she is working in her studio. I clearly remember the first...

INTRODUCING Michael Pendry

Softly lulling coos fill the nave. More than two thousand origami paper doves, popped in blue light, whirl softly on the ceiling. Visitors stop, inhale, lift the view and rest. These doves are a testimony to a divinely calming presence among the visitors. And this reaction is intended. „Les Colombes - the doves“ is a site-specific multimedia installation by artist Michael Pendry.

DOUBLE TROUBLE with Danni Pantel & Karl-Luis Vossbeck in New York

DOUBLE TROUBLE with Danni Pantel & Karl-Luis Vossbeck in New York

At tonight's charity exhibition, "TRANSITION" at Hotel de Rome which is held for Olafur Eliasson's Little Sun Foundation, you can meet the two participating artists Danni Pantel and Karl-Luis Vossbeck. Both recently returned from an intense enclave like work trip from New York. The enclave part was certainly not necessarily what the two had in mind and bargained for and was caused by the ice cold and extreme weather conditions. And boy, we know New York can get really freezing! In direct opposition to the temperatures outside was the stirred up energy inside their workplace. Working and living next to each other for the period of two months, preparing and producing large scale paintings for a one night pop up show without being able to leave the house might create an interesting challenge. Especially as Danni Pantel and Karl-Luis Vossbeck are an odd pairing when it comes to their personalities and works approaches as artists, yet they seem to be feeding on their artistic feuds and antithetic mindsets in a very productive way!

Yellow shredded silk flowers whirl in the wind. Some remnants leave neon yellow traces on the dusty grounds and greyish waters of the Hong Kong harbor. The softness of the yellow textile visually and mentally collides with the industrial nature of the area. It is a...
