We are happy to announce our pop-up group show UMÆTTELIGHED_VORACITY at BLAA GALLERI KØPENHAVN October 7th + 8th 2016. We presented this exhibition with the title VORACITY as a contribution to Berlin 48 Stunden Neukölln Art Festival in June 2016 before its roll-out in Copenhagen. The show introduces five distinct artistic positions, each understanding art as an engagement as an insatiable driver of individual expression, here displayed together for this temporary presentation.
In their drawings , paintings and installation works, the artists Beate Baumholzer, Davide Hjort, Donata Kindesperk, Robert Niemann and Jan Ziegler demonstrate modern societies steady greed for aesthetic novelties and changes. The need for unexplored visual stimuli is deemed to be a base of human culture. Since always, portrait images are giving the opportunity to display reality in versatile variations and mostly play with glorification and idealisation.
The yearning of a narcissistic society for self-portraits, for admiration and confirmation by its social environment is playing a key role in this context and is reflected critically in the artwork displayed.
