Kunst Im Kontext

Kunst Im Kontext KIK organises visual art exhibitions and events in Berlin. KIK - is an exhibition programme that takes place in Kino International, Berlin. KIK has organised a very successful series of eight art exhibitions at the venue.

The uniqueness of KIK at Kino was the world-class quality of the movie theatre, which is used for each exhibition as a screening point and focus for an artist's video. We showcased amongst others Julian Rosefeldt, Nicolas Provost and Elmgreen & Dragset. Each video helped create an individual theme, which was reflected throughout the curated exhibition. Guest curators are invted each year to create

More fabulous work from Tracey Moffatt at KIK EIGHT, in the shape of her video piece, Other. "Very funny, very hot."

OTHER is a fast paced montage of film clips depicting attraction between races. Marlon Brando looks at Tahitian girls and Samantha from S*x and the City ogles an African American football player in the men’s locker room.Seven minutes of gazing and touching and exploding volcanoes.

62 artworks, 30 brilliant artists, and one Kino International labyrinth. Needless to say we're excited. Don't miss out - it's going to be KIK-ass!

Heute Pressetermin - MORGEN geht´s los:

Für einen Abend wird das denkmalgeschützte Kino International in ein Labyrinth der Kunst verwandelt. Es öffnen sich die sonst verschlossenen Türen in die "Honecker Lounge" mit filigranen Zeichungen und geheimnisvollen Ölbildern. Durch eine in den frühen 90gern über und über mit Graffitti besprühte Hintertreppe gelangt man zum ehemaligen DDR Jugendclub. Somit wird schon das Erkunden der Hinterzimmer und Hallen des Kinos zu einer kleinen Zeitreise, wo einen in der Bibliothek im Erdgeschoss Videos, Skulpturen und begehbare Installationen in den Bann ziehen, die Panoramabar mit zeitgenössischer Kunst glänzt, die sonst im Museum zu sehen ist, und selbst der letzte versteckte Raum seltene Schätze von Biennale Künstlern birgt.

Very happy to show a beautiful painting from Alisa Margolis, Gallery Judin ... TOMORROW at KIK SEVEN - TIME LIES

Alisa Margolis
Pastoral, 2014
Mixed media on canvas
175 x 200 cm

Margo­lis’ paint­ings rise from simple beginn­ings: flow­ers, the baroque, glam rock, fash­ion mag­a­zine ads, satellite photos of far off galaxies, heavy metal, cheerlead­ers, and Dutch van­itas paint­ing among them, lin­ing her stu­dio floor on overlapping pie­ces of copy paper. The banal is cen­tral to the orga­ni­za­tion of her major tropes. How­ever, where one’s typ­ical Gen-Xer might approach banal­ity by cast­ing it aside with a heavy dose of irony, Margo­lis’ posi­tion is one of earnest­ness. She lets her­self become seduced by the very canni­ness of her themes, to take them on with almost reli­gious ded­ica­tion.

Indeed transcen­dence, a power gained through the rou­tine acceptance that one is ulti­mately pow­er­less, is cen­tral to her practice. But, all the same, Margo­lis’ art is by no means a trea­tise on God and all that is holy. On the con­trary, her paint­ings posit con­tem­po­rary ana­logues to the reli­gios­ity of her pre­de­cessors, those ana­logues repro­cessed through art histor­ical modes to cre­ate results that are both timely in con­tent and near time­less in form.

„Berliner Starfotograf von New Yorker Polizei verprügelt!“ titelte die BZ kürzlich. Am letzten Wochenende eröffnete Oliver Rath nach der eigenen Galerie in Berlin Mitte mit einer grandiosen Feier jetzt auch die Rath Factory - mehr Raum für die typische Rath Fotografie extrem, erfolgreich, sexy ... Und wie verbringt der Mann sonst seine Zeit?
Oliver Rath zeigt bei KIK SEVEN eine Fotoarbeit, die im Internet viele Kontroversen hervorgerufen hat: „Familiensonntag“. Es zeigt Oliver, wie er seiner Frau eine stilisierte Waschmaschine auf dem Rücken tätowiert. Diese offensichtliche Ironie stellt Rollenzuschreibungen in Frage. Womit verbringt „DIE Frau“, „DER Mann“, „DAS Kind“ seine Zeit? Wie sieht glückliches Familienleben aus - in diesen Zeiten?

Oliver Rath challenges the traditional family unit and the way they might spend their time with his photograph, Familiensonntag

A little taster of our video programme in former GDR library, Klub International for KIK SEVEN

“COLETTE has been a visionary presence on the New York art scene since the early seventies. Internationally known for her highly articulate lyrical environments, as as well colorful alter egos and personas. Colette's work touches on many themes. These include seduction and desire, identity, beauty and the female form, as well as death and resurrection.”
Paul Tshinkell /ART New York. Colette the Artist. Documentary . 93.

BORIS ELDAGSEN’s work revolves around the idea of losing yourself, from the metaphysical to the erotic. Rather than exploring stories, a place or a person, his work hijacks and transforms the external reality, to paint a reality beyond TIME and space: that of the unconscious.

SARAH ABU ABDALLAH
With this work, most recently shown as part of the Centre Pompidou’s The Filter Bubble, the artist uses a rapid overlay of imagery, ranging from the seemingly supernatural to the mundane...to sift through the absolute, the predefined, constructs of anxiety, and the absurdity of the agreed-upon in a time of excess. The film extracts slivers from everyday life and references virtual reality. How does one place one’s coordinates in the physical, metaphysical and the digital citizenry?

KATHARINA ARNDT
The film „I ♥ NY“ consists of scenes of 18 Hollywood movies, in which New York City is destroyed. These films are a projection screen for fears and desires. NY is gate to the new world and a symbol of a strong USA, but at the same time vulnerable. This fear, whether before or after 9/11, is processed unchanged in Hollywood. It seems that the maximum vulnerability implicates also the maximum sensation and maximum catharsis.

Two wonderful works from Olivia Berckemeyer at KIK SEVEN this Friday

Fünf vor zu spät, 2011
Zahn der Zeit, 2014

Ships and airplanes dynamically rise up against gravity and time, long forgotten mythical creatures conquer the postmodern and the patina of aged structures meets surfaces of iridescent bronze or gold – in her unique sculptures, Olivia Berckemeyer generates confusion and fascination through the combination of apparent contradictions. Alone the use of bronze casting, an apparently anachronistic technique, undermines clichés of what contemporary sculpture ‘should be’. Yet precisely because of this medium’s unexpected flexibility is Berckemeyer so virtuosically successful in bestowing her subject matter with the appropriate form. Due to the natural characteristics of this medium, she can vary amorphous impressions of melting, dissolving, smelting – in short: the process, together with the her objects distinctive motifs and characters and alloy them to overall shapes. Subsequently, the represented figure or object remains clearly recognisable whilst exhibiting the notable effects of liquefaction, which recalls melting wax or dripping acid and often accounts for the majority of the sculpture. The production method has much to do with these deformations, as the original positive of the cast is indeed formed from wax. The contrast in the materiality becomes especially apparent when clearly recognisable areas are smoothed to a polish and the ‘effects of liquidation’ show a typical bronze patina. Thus there arises a very sensory interplay between sparkling gloss and deep, rough matt. The astute observer suddenly finds himself vis-à-vis a variation of baroque chiaroscuro, encapsulated in a contemporary sculpture.

Super excited and thrilled to include work from the amazing Tracey Moffatt in the KIK SEVEN video programme for the world-class cinema screen at Kino International

“The clinch that signals the fade-out in so many movies is just the beginning of Love, as Moffatt and editor Hillberg turn their energetic montage technique (introduced in Artist and Lip) to the cinema’s most obvious and most multifarious subject. As it turns out, Bette Davis and the Bond girls have a lot in common. A wealth of clips, from chaste black-and-white Hollywood classics to more full-flooded fare from the ‘60s and ‘70s, show women’s love, lust, longing and revenge. Without commentary or condescension, the film remakes the age-old story of a boy and girl in love with exhilaration and irony.”

Only 5 more days until we show some really wonderful works from Fiete Stolte in the KIK SEVEN labyrinth!

https://www.facebook.com/events/990754010947047/

Fiete Stolte is a Berlin born artist that can be described as a conceptual sculptor. His work varies from sensitive interventions within the course of time to manifestations in various materials and media. The structure of a week of 8 days and the resulting detachment from sunlight are the framework for observations and traces in every day life. In the suspense of day and night, visiblity and invisibility or presence and absence, the artist creates different works that make the observer the center of his own contemplation.

Oana Farcas' super miniature paintings at KIK SEVEN

Tracey Emin, 2014
Oil on Wood
3,3 x 3,3cm

"At the heart of Farcas’ practice is portraiture. Portraits of women, men and children, real and fictionalised, parade across her boards and canvases. Ranging in size from the diminutive world of the miniature, to large scale crowd scenes, Farcas’s work delivers a colourful ensemble of characters. Sometimes Farcas tends towards the fantastical, combining animals or anthropomorphic beings with her fully human figures; drawing from mythology and fairy tales, often sourced from her native Romanian heritage. Always though, it is possible to find Farcas herself in the work."
- From “Oana Farcas: Between the Visible and the Invisible by Jane Neal”

Delighted to be showing work from the wonderful Almagul Menlibayeva on the world-class cinema screen in Kino International for KIK SEVEN

"My educational background is in the Soviet Russian avant-garde school of Futurism, which I combine with a nomadic aesthetic of post-Soviet, contemporary Kazakhstan – something that I have been exploring in recent years through my photographic and video work. I use specific ways of expression in modern and contemporary art as a vehicle to investigate my personal archaic atavism as a certain mystical anthropomorphism. In other words, I explore the nature of a specific Egregore, a shared cultural psychic experience, which manifests itself as a specific thought-form among the people(s) of the ancient, arid and dusty Steppes between the Caspian Sea, Baikonur and Altai in today’s Kazakhstan." - Almagul Menlibayeva

Some fantastic work from Carina Linge to be shown at KIK SEVEN

Liebeskrank, 2014
Tableau Infrathin, 2011

Carina Linge addresses the nonvisible: that which adheres to it as shadow, as impression, as residual warmth, e.g. memories, projections, relationships, especially feelings. All works refer to things that are past, to things that were never there, to things that are imagined, to things that are missed or longed for, to death, to stagnation, or to loss. Their iconography recalls the vanitas still life of the Baroque period as much as Roman and Greek mythology, or as allegories and medieval love-magic. The language of Carina Linge's pictures often has sexual undertones, with numerous personal references and self-reflective allusions mixed in. With all the stylistic, motif-filled, and iconographic references to history, numerous references to the present are contained. In this way the symbol-laden, deeply melancholic content of Linge's allegories of desire are conveyed timelessly and universally; her works are a challenging reflection of the condition humaine.
