On the 27th of July the Watermill Center @watermillcenter celebrates the Annual Summer Benefit & Auction TABULA RASA.

The artistic „Think-Tank“ gives you the chance to purchase works from over 100 artists such as our beloved Rainer Fetting, Katherine Bernhardt, Anish Kapoor, Barthélémy Toguo or Spencer Tunick.

The Center was founded in 1992 by the avant-garde visionary and theater director Robert Wilson in the search of a new artistic base. It has since developed into a laboratory for interdisciplinary experimentation and collaborations, by giving artist the chance of exchange in their residency program.

25/05/2019

Rainer Fetting paints men in various constellations and stagings and develops a painting style, which – just like its subjects – is “in drag”, that is costumed, staged; it is a style setting a scene, playing with a precise set of gestures, poses, connotations. His paintings are full of contentual as well as formal references to subculture, art history, the social situation. While Markus Lüpertz and Georg Baselitz bulldoze their way through Germany's Nazi past and the country's subsequent division by painting heroic images, symbolic oak, ears, and eagles, and in doing so ooze pathos and machismo, Fetting develops a much more subtle, almost quotidian access to the genre of historical painting. He eroticizes the male body as much as entire cities (Berlin and New York) and the fraught history of Germany as a whole.

In his paintings of the Berlin Wall, the so-called Mauerbilder, he generates an abstract, colorful flatness, reminiscent of Mark Rothko, Ernst Ludwig Kirchner or the set designs of expressionist films. In Fetting's works, the city appears as ever-nightly and dead, characterized by its contrast between gloom and vibrant colors. Indeed, at night, the area around Moritzplatz in Kreuzberg, where Fetting, Salomé and the so-called “Moritzboys” had opened their gallery in 1977, remains pitch-black. Only a handful of the crumbling buildings in the neighborhood are inhabited, the streets are deserted come nighttime. That is, until the legendary punk-club SO36 – co-owned by Martin Kippenberger – opens its doors around the corner on Oranienstraße, in 1978.

„Fetting's ‚expressive‘ portraits and cityscapes manage to capture psycho-social energies which reveal themselves in every painterly decision. On one and the same canvas dry strokes, jotted down in a seemingly careless fashion, violently collide with islands, clumps of pastose paint or dark patches, reminiscent of the old masters. However, at no point does Fetting's work become overloaded with symbols, nor does it ever resort to irony. Perpetually moving along the lines of abstraction, it remains surprisingly open-ended within the confines of its composition. It remains uncertain – in the best possible sense of the word.“ Excerpt from Oliver Koerner von Gustorf essay for the exhibition.

We are delighted to invite you to an artist talk with Stefan Knauf and
Margit J. Mayer on the occasion of Knauf's exhibition 'Oscar Columno'.

Save the Date: 5 April 2019 | 6:30 PM

Followed by a closing event to celebrate the last day of the exhibition.

Stefan Knauf's (*1990) work comprise a broad spectrum of materials and substances from the construction and furnishing sector. Hereby, his interest lies in the aesthetics of materials and their culture. Knauf’s sculptures and wall paintings form material collages, which raise questions on taste and trends. What are the longings behind the choice of specific materials for architecture or furnishing? What does the proliferation of a material say about the taste and sentimentality of the place and time in which it was used? Knauf’s technically proficient sculptures combine forms and materials that achieve a delicate equilibrium while at the same time connecting questions of art history and aesthetics.

Margit J. Mayer

Having contributed extensively to Vogue and GQ, she became editor-in-chief of the German edition of AD Architectural Digest in 2000 until 2011.

Don’t miss @stefan_knauf’s solo show - two more weeks on view

The prestigious spaces Knauf’s work points towards are typically clad in surfaces crafted from stone, fine wood and metal. The artist arranges them as formal studies with classic proportions. Upon further exploring the show, the visitors witness a process of gradual dismantling, or rather an incremental gaze behind the facade: The premium surfaces are replaced with rough contemporary construction materials, such as drywall sheets and metal stud frames, which are transformed by the artist according to aesthetic considerations. Grooves segment the sheets’ surfaces, steel screws become structuring elements, metal rails emulate a rudimentary colonnade. These works that form this second cycle are meticulously crafted and maintain a sense of ‘noble’ formality and proportion. The supposedly pedestrian materials step out of their shadow existence as construction materials of an ordinarily invisible substructure and are themselves morphing into an ennobled surface on display. In his play of omission, exposure and upgrading, and the simultaneous building of a connection between a specific time in history and a contemporary condition, Knauf reveals the precious surface materials as construction elements of a fragile modernist fiction and uncovers a physical as much as a psychological supporting structure.“ By Till Wittwer @ Robert Grunenberg Berlin

Don’t miss the opening of „Urban Requiem“ at Galerie Lelong Galerie Lelong & Co., New York New York, on Friday, March 15. A solo exhibition by Barthélémy Togue @barthelemy_toguo that „will spark a larger conversation on the language of authority, border control as a mode of policing and the flow of human bodies and capital that is inescapably tied to colonial and imperial histories“. We are grateful to have featured Barthélémy Togue's work in our very first exhibition "Paradise Is Now. Palm Trees in Art“ and his first-ever solo exhibition at a German gallery "Secret Evidence“, that was accompanied by an artist talk: Barthélémy Toguo in conversation with Hans Ulrich Obrist @hansulrichobrist

We are open, come and see Stefan Knauf‘s new show 🔛

With Oscar Columno Stefan Knauf (*Munich, 1990) presents his first solo exhibition at Robert Grunenberg Berlin. The Berlin-based artist shows new sculptural works which are immersed in an extensive installation setting dominated by skeletal columns. Thus, Knauf examines the stylistic and formal language of modernist interiors, specifically referenced in the imposing spaces of bourgeois apartment buildings in Milan. Whereas these spaces are usually clad in marble, brass and mahogany wood, Knauf takes a literal look behind the noble materials’ facade to reveal their supporting structures which otherwise remain hidden. In this act of uncovering, the artist transforms rough and untreated construction materials, such as drywall sheets and metal stud frames according to aesthetic considerations and applies meticulous craftsmanship to reconfigure them. Thus, the ordinarily invisible and pedestrian substructure itself is morphing into an ennobled surface on display. In his game of omission, exposure and upgrading, Knauf reveals the seemingly precious surface materials as construction elements of a brittle modernist fiction. The eponymous Oscar Columno may be understood as a clue in a double-deal, here: In a function not dissimilar to said Milanese interiors, this generic, yet evocative name of a fictional architect offers a fragile scaffolding for projections of grandezza and elegance.

A lyric poet, Marcel Broodthaers did not commit himself to visual art until 1964, when he was forty. In just twelve years, he created a complex oeuvre that stakes out a unique position in the orbits of Minimalism, Pop Art, and Conceptualism. The use of language and writing is crucial in his work. In „Metamodernity“ his playful semiological experimentation with the signification of words and images in "Journal d’un voyage utopique” (1973) reflects on the mechanics of imagination and meaning-making and their consolidation in cultural memory. The delicate writing in an ornate frame, which is placed over what might be a sea with a bird flying along the horizon or may be read as a forlorn island. What do you see looking at this utopian voyage?
