Viva la Internet! Better said: Luckily there is Instagram. Corona makes it impossible for me to visit galleries at the moment. Thank God that Instagram is also a good platform for this because I’m looking there for artworks and video installations which I would like to share with you.

Today I present you: me.magritte – a video installation by Stefanie Rübensaal. Have a look at the video installation first and let it have an effect on you.

It is important for Stefanie Rübensaal to produce the idea for her video installation from out of the flow. “ Here it went very quickly from designing the graphic mask to photographing and installing the figure,“ she writes to me. She spent a day by the sea to record the video and in the end „the work is a digital collage of all the elements,“ she continues.

For me personally, the video work has something calming about it, but at the same time, it encourages me to think and reflect. There is something mysterious in it. Being at the sea and looking out to the open sea makes me melancholic sometimes. How do you feel about it?

Stefanie came up with the idea through „inner chaotic states“ – in times of Corona a state that many people are experiencing. “ Standing still, emptiness, upheaval, change, transformation. Where are we going? A moment of stop and questioning“, she explains, „To see the sea, but not to be at the sea. To walk along the sea in your mind and at the same time holding on to the protection of the umbrella.“ Also in the interpretation of dreams, the umbrella stands for protection and safety. A state of mind that many currently hope for.

Stefanie Rübensaal has a mixed relationship with video art: „On the one hand, I think a video is a cold working medium and product […]. On the other hand, videos (video collages) can be used to expand existing images and add an additional level of meaning to them. When this happens, I really enjoy the medium […]“, says Stefanie.

So if anyone would have liked to go to the seaside over Easter, this is a good alternative to explore the sea near to Rostock even when we are not allowed to travel actually.

Susanne Britz – Digitale Fotodrucke

Same place, different artist.  I’m still at the Inselgalerie and visiting the exhibition „transformer“ because another artist is presenting her artwork here.

Susanne Britz has focused on photographs, pigment prints, and installations of everyday objects. The working process behind these works is exciting and is based on each other, so Susanne Britz runs through different phases during her creative process: it probably starts with an idea, then a spatial installation follows. Here she uses everyday objects from the household, sports equipment, tools from the studio or children’s toys. Once the installation is finished, she takes a photo of this work. Afterward, the photo gets digitally overdrawn.

Many of her artworks that are exhibited here seem like instructions to me, even if I am not sure for what exactly.  But if I am honest, it probably doesn’t matter.

I like the strong colors and the general idea behind this artwork. It‘ s funny to see all the things and to realize what you can do with everyday objects.

Usually, I would recommend a visit to the gallery, as the exhibition has been extended.  But nothing is normal these days: Unfortunately during the Corona COVID-19 Pandemic, it is not possible. If you are interested in the art of Susanne Britz, please have a look at her homepage or check the Instagram account of the Inselgalerie.

The artist Mia Hochrein works with many different tools for her art. She decides in the creation process which creative tools she uses for her work. As a result, she creates photographs and also installations or performances.

When I stood in front of these two photographs, it was instantly clear to me that I would write about them. Why? Well, let’s start:

Mia HochreinWhat do I see immediately? Two people wearing different textiles and always several of them. The textiles look like old towels, shirts, tablecloths or window curtains. In both pictures, the faces are covered. In my opinion, this gives the photographs anonymity and something mysterious.

Gender is also not directly interpretable. Is it the artist herself, or is it a woman and a man? The hands in the right picture seem a little more masculine, but the feet in the left picture seem more feminine. Perhaps this is too much stereotypical thinking. In the left photograph, the toes also point towards the wall. The rest of the body, however, appears as if the person is looking at me with his or her face. I start thinking and I have to find out what these photographs represent.

Mia HochreinI take a look at the titles of the photographs. They are called „Strangers 1“ and „Strangers 2“. The exhibition has the title „transformer“ and the gallery manager Eva Hübner tells me that the textiles are garments. Clothes that were once worn by the artist’s mother and grandmother. Several generations are thus connected, quite inconspicuously. Thus the photos express the following for me: Even if some of them are no longer with us, we still carry them with us throughout our lives.  They are a part of us.

Because of the anonymity, I can identify myself more easily with the basic idea. Do you?

The exhibition is on until 23 of march at Inselgalerie Berlin. Have a look!

…where the digital becomes physical. Artists of the YOUR ART BEAT MARKET

-EXHIBITION – GROUP SHOW-

…where the digital becomes physical

is not only the moving motive behind the YOUR ART BEAT MARKET, now it also becomes an active program in a non-virtual form! For the first time, YOURARTBEAT is presenting its artists offline and exhibits the works that were previously only available for viewing and buying in the online shop.

In addition to a lovingly compiled and eclectic selection of original works, as well as specially produced art pieces, also a variety of materials are demonstrated with which we not only experiment and create alternative forms of artistic manifestation, but in particular transform the digital and media arts into physical shape.

Individual media contributions by the artists themselves not only open up new perspectives or give background information, they also enable a more personal encounter with the creators.

YOURARTBEAT look forward to an inspiring interplay of the polarizing textures of the digital-virtual and the analogue-physical, to the exploration of various materials and consistencies in combination with digital art and interactive media stations, creating personal approaches, highlighting and deepening specialized backgrounds.

During the two-week show, there will also be accompanying programs of virtual reality and audiovisual design.

 

Exhibition Opening: 14 Febuary 2019 – 7 PM

Duration: 15 to 28 Febuary 2019

Opening Hours: Monday to Friday: 4 to 8 PM // Saturday: 1 to 6 PM

I M O G E N   D A V I S

is a London-based photographer.

Artist statement: I use photography as a way of capturing and holding on to feelings that would otherwise escape my grasp. It’s a way of taking something like breath or the feeling of loss and sadness and holding on to it, making a photographic world of these immaterial things.

I believe that photography is used to capture moments of people’s lives, moments that would otherwise be lost in our memories forever, only to be manipulated and distorted by our own thoughts and other memories built on top, each overlapping and contorting the last. However, to document breath within photography is to capture something that is invisible. For these images I learned how to blow my own glass, making physical recreations of my breath that now have memories of their own.

PEER TO SPACE

Peer to Space is a creative organisation focusing on young contemporary arts -especially digital and Internet art-. Tina Sauerländer is the founder of peer to space (2010) and has already curated exhibitions and shows in frame of reputable institutions like HeK (Haus der elektronischen Künste, Basel) or at POSITIONS (a yearly Berlin Art Fair).

But she curates online exhibitions, as well,

to increase the visibility of new ways of artistic expression,

to create an easy access & raise the people’s interest in art and

to bring new forms of creativity into our modern environment, to current channels and devices,

thereby she totally catches up the nower Zeitgeist. Pioneering…

Mermaids and unicorns is the name of peer to space’s latest online exhibition and deals with the blurry boarders of humans’ on- and off-screen reality, the perception and acceptance of new truths, the impermanence and evanescence of up-to-dateness.

 

Next to interdisciplinary exhibitions, workshops and other projects, peer to space presents new forms of expressions and approaches in young contemporary art. Similarly to the concept of YOURARTBEAT, peer to space also serves a platform for artistic exchange of knowledge and experience.

The intention of peer to space is defined by its name – it combines the structure of Peer to peer Networking with the ideas of space, freedom and openness to artistic expression.

Aside: Peer to peer networking (P2P) means computer-networks where several computers can work together equally – it is an offering and sharing of own, as well as the use of the others’ services, functions and resources.

Posted by Isabelle Franz,
Passing those walls in Barcelone and Berlin, I was wondering about their different purposes. Definitions like „a continuous vertical brick or stone structure that encloses or divides an area of land” or “a thing regarded as a protective or restrictive barrier” are coming up. – A barrier, something dividing one from the other, protecting what’s inside or maybe what’s outside. But what are they reflecting? Do they show me what they protect or what they face? Are they a mirror of what they face right now – or an image of what they had faced over time? Or may be they show me what people behind them want me to think. Sometimes they seem to melt with the outside, with no reference to what they were built for.

SENSITIVITY – SENSUALITY – SEXUALITY

Women of Canterbury (2011) and Gentle Creatures (2007) are names of two photography series from Marianna Rothen, a visual artist based in NYC. Inside her collections she portrays the most beautiful traits of the female gender, concerning to their mental, as well as physical charisma.

Alternative Beschreibung

The nudity of the shown girls communicates a very sensual impression and represent them in all naturalness, vulnerability and delicateness. The women’s elegance and graceful aesthetics are pointed in such a playful and maiden way that you could rather call them girls –than women. The same can be seen in the presentation of the women’s body - as an object. Of course, on the one side the nudity emphasizes sexuality and female attractions but has no erotic focus or aim of the other side.

This girly mood gets also supported by the organic environment and the natural or human way of the women’s movement and attitude, especially in their interaction and behavior in group. This appends a very flowery and hippie like touch that is additionally complemented by Rothen's photography methods whose visual vintage style is strongly reminiscent of the 60’s and 70’s.

marianna-rothen-tangerine-3arcane17_les_etoilesAnother interesting association -both thematically and visually- is the link to one special card of a tarot deck. The talk is of a very esoteric, emotional and especially female card: „The Stars“ (no.17). This card pronounces a female matter of emotion, the women’s nativeness, tenderness, vulnerability and sensualism. Likewise the photographs, the tarot card „The Stars“ emanates a childish, playful and easy mood, it attaches importance to a soulful life with mindful reflection, female awareness, balance and a focus on amusement and joy.

 

I really fell in love with this photography series and the aesthetics of Rothen’s theoretical approach,

as well as the successful implementation.

- a romanticized fairy tale

of the female flower children

walking in idleness,

devoting themselves to

the sweet and carefree life.
