The gallery Judith Andreae from Bonn will show six artists who work with different
techniques and media at the Positions Berlin Art Fair 2018.
The young Berlin artist Lukas Glinkowski ( 1984, in Chelmno, Poland), master student
of Katharina Grosse at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf, has recently received the Villa
Aurora Fellowship 2019 in the field of visual arts. At the fair in Berlin we will show a
solo wall installed by him. In his sprayed and painted tile and mirror works, he gives
impressions of his personal environment.
Also Antje Zeiher's ( 1979, in Reutlingen) colored and gestural acrylic on canvas
works show her own environment and her everyday life in small parts. They challenge
the viewer to seek, to recognize, to associate and to interpret the painting. On some
works, one actually means to recognize something familiar: objects, architectural
elements and bodies can be guessed, yet an overall picture can not be grasped. The
viewer gets an "open end" and only a brief insight into the world of the painter, who
graduated in 2016 in the class of Jean-Marc Bustamante at the Academy of Fine Arts
Regine Schumann ( 1961, in Goslar) works with material made of fluorescent acrylic
glass. The resulting objects glow on their own, but only develop their full luminosity
when they are illuminated with black light. Due to the different light sources in the day
and night light the works are able to achieve an ever-changing surface effect. The
works of Schumann do not only have a sculptural sense of space, but also have a
picturesque deep space through their surface structure.
Achim Mohné ( 1964, in Aachen) uses a completely different medium in his series of
works ,The_Vegan_Scanning_Cooking_Printing_Project '. Here he devotes himself to
the ethical and ecological aspects of a vegan diet. Vegetables, salads, fruits and other
plants are scanned with high resolution, digitally processed and printed out with a real
pigment printer. The results are modern still lifes, which are presented as unique
pieces arranged in museum series in the exhibition space.
Aswell 'still life-like' works by Francis Zeischegg ( 1956, in Hamburg) are shown at the
fair. The series of works "Florale - digital / by Karl Blossfeld Waldpflanzen" (2018) and
"Florale-Form / by Karl Blossfeld" (2014) show plants in the same aesthetics as
Blossfeld recorded them at the beginning of the 20th century. In her drawings,
however, the artist again shows the breakdown of raster vision into points and
intersections, superpositions of structures in front of and behind.
In filigree work processes of almost manic repetition, Viktoria Strecker ( 1987, in
Hanover) explores the possibilities of a timeless and universally valid structure. In her
drawings - as well as her translation into objects and installations - she goes beyond a
self-exploration in the meditative process and strives for connection to something
universal. Her works are reminiscent of biological systematics that build from repetition
and are often both macroscopically and microscopically legible.
