Eröffnung: Sonntag, 5. Mai 2024, 12 Uhr

Die Natur zeigt sich den Besuchern in unserer Ausstellung "Nature Unlimited" im Museum Art.Plus in Form von Zeichnungen, Bildern, Skulpturen und Installationen. Jedoch ist die gezeigte Natur nicht bedrohlich, nicht gefährdet, aber auch nicht romantisch verklärt dargestellt. Stattdessen finden die Besucher viel Harmonie, Symmetrie, Energie und positive Ausstrahlung.

José Arnaud-Bello (MX), Dario Basso (ES), Carlo Borer (CH), Wim Botha (ZA), Angela Flaig (DE), Friedemann Flöther (DE), Ileana Florescu (RO), Jinmo Kang (KR), David Kassman (IL), Bodo Korsig (DE), Reinhard Klessinger (DE), Astrid Köppe (DE), Gerhard Langenfeld (DE), Ulrich Möckel (DE), David Nash (GB), Martin d’Orgeval (FR), Irene Pätzig (DE), Flavio Paolucci (CH), Chanoo Park (KR), Giuseppe Penone (IT), Thomas Putze (DE), Davide Rivalta (IT), Willi Weiner (DE)

We are pleased to present the sixth ORNAMENT UND VERBRECHEN exhibition, featuring a wide selection of works by artists who have accompanied LAGE EGAL this year or whom we have met recently. The series of exhibitions takes place at our temporary space at Strausberger Platz 19, located within one of the historic neoclassical Hermann Henselmann towers, also known as “Haus des Kindes”. The title of this series takes inspiration from the renowned essay by architectural theorist Adolf Loos, who asserted that ornament was a sign of decadence and violence in modern society.

The selected works compose again an unique landscape of objects and architectural elements that reflect the narratives of modernity and minimalism and the role they play in contemporary society. This prompts us to question our own conceptions of ornamentation and the underlying complexities of our built environment.

Pretty Shiny Stuff @ Arte Giani






















ARTE GIANI zeigt vom 8. November 2023 - 12. Januar 2024

Astrid Köppe
Pretty Shiny Stuff
Emaillen und Zeichnungen
Vernissage: Mittwoch, 8. November, 17:30 – 20 Uhr

Unter dem treffenden wie zugleich tiefstapelnden Titel „Pretty Shiny Stuff“ zeigt uns die Berliner Künstlerin Astrid Köppe neue Arbeiten mit sorgfältigst gezeichneten Formen, die sich in ihrer Abstraktheit einer klaren Zuordnung entziehen. Auf den ersten Blick scheinen sie der Natur entnommen, doch das Bilderrätsel löst sich nie auf. Astrid Köppes biomorph erscheinende Gestalten fügen sich zu einem sorgfältig erdachten Spiel der Formen und Farben und sind so Zeugnis ihrer schier ungebremsten Fantasie. Nur anfänglich beziehen sie sich auf tatsächlich gesehene Dinge, um sich dann zu verändern, zu verdichten und zu Choreografien zu verselbständigen.  
Die glänzenden Emaille-Oberflächen und die changierend irisierenden metallischen Aquarellfarben auf dem Papier laden den Betrachter ein, in die erstaunliche Bilderwelt Astrid Köppes einzutauchen.

Seizan Gallery New York

September 7 – October 21, 2023 EXTENDED UNTIL NOVEMBER 2

OPENING RECEPTION: September 7, 6-8 pm


SEIZAN Gallery New York is pleased to announce Pretty Shiny Stuff, a solo exhibition of works by German artist Astrid Köppe from September 7th through October 21st, 2023. The opening reception with the artist is Thursday, September 7th, 6-8pm. Located in one of the gallery’s newly renovated exhibition spaces, the show features 30 pieces from the artist’s vast oeuvre of A4 size drawings. Four large format enamel-coated steel panel works are also on view. This is the artist's first solo exhibition in New York.

Astrid Köppe has worked with dedication to a single format of drawing for over twenty years. The focus is on biomorphic shapes meticulously rendered at the center of vertical white paper. Her use of mechanical pencils and watercolor reference illustrations from pre-photography era botanical and medical textbooks. Industrial design and classic science fiction illustration are also suggested. Just as the strange shapes begin to make sense, they slip away, refusing easy categorization. The artist consciously weaves riddles into each work.

Köppe starts a drawing with a precise visualization in mind. Each object (shape or pattern) is rendered “accurately” and convincingly. Yet, viewers cannot figure out exactly what they are looking at. Köppe plays with what she calls “pretend 3-D effect,” giving shades to objects only to confuse perspective. Iridescent watercolors add extra layers of complexity.

The exhibition also includes four works made by vitreous enameling on steel plates, a technique traditionally used for industrial signage. In these pieces Köppe explores scaling up from the drawings. Working with a fabricator, the artist applies vitreous enamel onto steel plate by spraying through stencils, dripping onto the plate, scratching around wet enamel. The glossy kiln-fired works are related to the drawings yet present a dramatic contrast.
