Galerie Judith Andreae is a contemporary art gallery from Bonn, representing both young and established international artists from the fields of painting, drawing, photography, video, sculpture, object, installation and performance.
Duration 15.07.2021 — 04.09.2021
New works by the artists Hildegard Elma (*1948, Freudenstadt/Black Forest) and Julia Gruner (*1984, Lüdenscheid) are on display. While Elma's painting process is influenced by body dynamics, the chosen colour spectrum of red and blue and the always identical paper and brush format, Gruner uses the physical and chemical properties of the material paint to apply it to canvases as well as to objects. What both have in common is the concentrated exhaustion of their working methods, which leaves room for coincidences and variations.
Gudrun Kemsa | HITTING PUBERTY EPISODE 321 June to 25 July 2021 As part of the anniversary programme Hitting Puberty - 15 Years of the IMAI Foundation, young artists from the Foundation's distribution programme will present their own works in relation to historical videos from the IMAI archive that have been groundbreaking for their personal development. Gudrun Kemsa will show her work Merry-go-round (2001), which was created together with Marcus Maida. The screening programme with works by Gudrun Kemsa, Marcus Maida and Marcel Odenbach relates his observations to global economic cycles, ranging from the blinking merry-go-round of the capitalist entertainment industry to the brutal vicious circle of colonialism.
Claudia Mann | Hab keine Angst vor mirClaudia Mann (*1982 Wuppertal) is one of the most exciting and serious sculptors of the new generation. Time and again, she questions sculpture about its essence and its limits. In doing so, she developed the central thesis "Sculpture is Ground", based on the realisation that when working with the ground as a basic material, every negative form appears at the same time as a positive form and therefore no valuation can be made in favour of one or the other. Claudia Mann, "Hab keine Angst vor mir", MMK, Passau. Opening 16 July from 10 am. Duration: until 3 October 2021.
Lea Grebe |Transformation9.7.–3.9.2021 Lea Grebe "Transformation", exhibition at ITO Freier Projektraum Stuttgart Lea Grebe is concerned with the observation of nature at the interface with science and technology. In her works, insects exemplify the creatures that surround us and the ecosystems they animate. Her works also reflect techniques of archiving and presentation in museums - fascinated by the impossible attainability of a true order of things, man's will to systematise seems desperate in the face of the entropic disorder of all that is natural. Insects can be used to mirror and examine man's interest in the orders imposed on nature. The casting of individual animals and plants in bronze points to a reprocessing of nature that transforms living flora and fauna into relics of conservation and musealisation. The focussing and over-stylisation of individual seemingly insignificant creatures is also concerned about the search for a new ecological empathic thinking and a new, more sensitive access to our environment. Central to Grebe's work is the concept of transformation - a state that holds the possibility and hope of change.
