    Olaf Metzel – Plattenbau

    WENTRUP, Berlin, Germany

    Olaf Metzel’s second solo exhibition in the Wentrup gallery presents new works under the title Plattenbau [prefabricated apartment building usually made of concrete slabs]. For Metzel, the “Platte” (‘pre-fab’; literally: slab) is not only an architectural construction practice and material culture of the former East Bloc, but also a promise of Western postwar Modernist architecture, and similarly it highlights the discrepancy between ideal and reality.

The ancient war game of chess neatly makes the point that there are always rules demarcating a field of endless possibilities, rules that provide the necessary basis for all subsequent progress and development.

In recent years, artists, curators, and art connoisseurs alike, have flocked to the nation’s capital to set up shop, chasing after the next big thing.

    As a pictorial object, the candle has deep cultural and art historical roots. In addition to its practical function as a source of light, its use is also replete with symbolism: candles can stand for transience and death, illustrate biblical scenes and charge them with emotion, express feelings such as grief or melancholy, illuminate portrayals of science and the arts in the true sense of the word or subtly add an erotic layer to the scenes depicted.

In the past century artists have developed varied methods and processes to trigger chance and make the »[un]expected« visible within fixed parameters. With around 120 works, the large special exhibition shows for the first time how experimentally or systematically artists have dealt with the element of chance.

    For his exhibition "Bilder malen wie Cure" (“Painting Pictures Like The Cure”), Hildebrandt has created new collages from audio cassette tapes recorded with songs by the British band The Cure. Even though only one song is used for each work, often times multiple recordings are needed to cover the canvas surface – and those little spots between the dark strands mark the physical and musical beginning, or ending, of each song.

Berrada imitates, in the spaces he designs, conditions of nature and then moves them from their original context into the exhibition space. The conceptual art strategy of context displacement often resembles the scientific experimental setup.

    Matter, material and materiality have acted both as points of departure and subjects of artistic production since the 1960s. While for example Minimal Art focused on the specific characteristics of the used material, today’s phenomena of digitization bring about a new tension between materiality and immateriality that is reflected in contemporary art practices.

    Beton

    Kunsthalle Wien, Vienna, Austria

    In the 1950s and 60s, concrete was regarded as the epitome of modernism. An individual architectural style based on concrete established itself, so-called brutalism (originating from the French word for exposed concrete: béton brut). Brutalist architecture not only distinguishes itself through an expressive application of concrete but through a distinct social element; brutalist architecture stands for social housing, municipal educational establishments, cultural centers, and universities.

    Zu den wenigen Arbeiten der Art Basel, die unsere politische Wirklichkeit in den Blick nehmen, zählt die „Sammelstelle“ von Olaf Metzel. Dafür erwartet die Berliner Galerie Wentrup 180.000 Euro. Sie zeigt die In-situ-Arbeit als Feature-Beitrag in einer beklemmenden Ecksituation. Eine Drehtür, ein schief hängender Metallabfalleimer und eine von Kämpfen zeugende Metall-Wandverkleidung simulieren den gefängnisartigen Raum einer Sammelstelle für Flüchtlinge.

    Alexander Forbes: At Art Basel, the Most Relevant Art Today Is from Decades Ago

    www.artsy.net

    The presentations best poised to address the particular troubles we’re facing at the moment can be found in Art Basel in Basel’s Feature section of gallery-led curatorial projects. Olaf Metzel’s Sammelstelle (1992), presented by Berlin’s Wentrup, was initially conceived as a response to the influx of migrants Germany received in the early ’90s from Yugoslavia.

    This year’s Feature sector is bigger than previous editions — 32 booths, up from 30 last year — each of which will be presenting a bold curatorial project. Two galleries are addressing themes of migration: Wentrup (Berlin) is reviving Olaf Metzel’s installation “Sammelstelle” (1992), made in response to refugees arriving in Germany from the former Yugoslavia that year.

    Heimischer Stein und orientalische Muster in der Wiener Innenstadt Wien – Der Wind spielt auf einem Triangel im Baum. Das Vor- und Zurückwippen eines Spielplatz-Schaukelpferdchens bringt das um seinen Hals gelegte Tambourin zum Klingen. Die Schwerkraft entlockt einer Ziehharmonika ein letztes Stöhnen. Die Stadt als Orchester: So poetisch, aber auch mit Sinn für Humor hat Nevin Aladag ihre Heimatstadt Stuttgart 2015 im Projekt Traces porträtiert.

Wie Wandteppiche zieren die Screens die Flaniermeile, verstellen und verblenden durch ihre steinerne Eindringlichkeit die innerstädtische Geschäftigkeit. Sie markieren die Grenzen eines Raumes, bilden Konturen und Achsen innerhalb eines Feldes der Bewegung, das durch Schaufenster und urbanes Mobiliar geregelt ist.

When we think of interfaces, we think of a way to access digital ephemera through screens and simulacra. But isn't every surface an interface and every interfac a surface?

    Episode Two, 2012 Since the rise of appropriation in American art of the 1980s, the strategy has become so commonplace as to evade continued examination as a unique vein of artistic practice. At the same time, recurrent intellectual property battles around appropriative gestures in contemporary art have threatened its viability, giving rise to College Art Association’s important report published in February 2015, the Code of Best Practices in Fair Use for the Visual Arts.

    “L’image volée”, a group show curated by artist Thomas Demand (Munich, 1964), will be held in the two levels of the Nord gallery at Fondazione Prada in Milan. The exhibition revolves around the idea that we all stand on someone else’s shoulders, and explores how artists have always referred to existing imagery to make their own. Questioning the boundaries between originality, conceptual inventiveness and the culture of the copy, the project will focus on theft, authorship, annexation and the creative potential of such pursuits.

What is the relationship between the artist’s painting and sculpture dating from the closing years of the 19th century?

    Creating a portrait of our society in the form of three-dimensional images is Olaf Metzel’s (b. 1952 in Berlin) stated artistic intention. Few other German sculptors bring our contemporary situation and collective memory so sharply into focus. Metzel’s fundamental aim is to give shape to our time by making current concerns visible and initiating a discussion of important sociocultural issues.

    For the dance performance MOVE, Nevin Aladağ explored the question of how certain people move and what fates are told by their movements. The result is a series of movement sequences, which Aladağ has taken out of their natural, individual and social context and abstracted from their protagonists. These movements are being enacted simultaneously by several performers in the exhibition space.

Meanwhile Demand´s images are narrative, relating his photos to a specific story, Böhm relies on textures, lines, and volumes of a more abstract work.

    The title “Caverne” says it all. While art galleries are normally light places, Berlin’s Wentrup Gallery is plunged into gloom for Hicham Berrada’s new show. The artist, who is of Moroccan origin and based in Paris, turns the gallery room into a dim grotto, exploring the relationship between art and natural forms.

    In Erlangen, the city where the mp3-format was developed, the group exhibition “SAVE THE DATA!” focusses on the interference of fine art and various forms of storage. In what ways do artists use digital storage media – current and obsolete – for artistic expression und how are the different levels of meaning entangled? What influence does the digitization have on the creation of pictures in photography, film and sculpture? How are the changes, which happened to storage media within the last years and decades, questioned through artistic processing?

Why we expect more from technology and less from each other” (Basic Books, 2011). At WENTRUP, works by the artists Verena Dengler, Florian Meisenberg, David Renggli and Gabriele de Santis address various aspects of the query posed by Turkle, here reprised within the context of artistic production, reception, and choice of medium.

Using the media of paint, performance, installation and video, his work reflects the variety of skills that he experienced throughout his life: Florian first studied media design, until he eventually entered the art academy in Düsseldorf and studied with Peter Doig. Whilst being intensely sincere about formal and critical concepts behind his work, he openly discusses what moves and motivates him.

    A full-length dressing room mirror as a portal to Hades. Orpheus touches the mirror’s surface. Concentric circles ripple out from his finger, the glass liquefies, and he slips through a quicksilver sea to the other side. Jean Cocteau adapted the tale of Orpheus, the tragic bard from Greek mythology who unsuccessfully sought to rescue his wife Eurydice from the underworld, for his film Orphée (1940).

    For MUTANT, Peles Empire worked site-specifically, responding to the architecture of SALTS. Further emphasizing the process of layering both physically and conceptually, a dramatic tear in the front wallpaper uncovers a monumental paper backdrop, highlighting the room’s top light shaft, while visually merging floor and ceiling. Adding to the visual be wilderment, two column-like Jesmonite sculptures finish the dramtic setting.

    Böhm’s recent works build on the investigation developed in her earliest photographic series; by repeatedly photographing arrangements of simple materials and reincorporating printed images into their source arrangements, Böhm arrives at a finished image that contains excerpts and iterations of itself. Sometimes modifying her images with overlaid materials, drawn lines, and in-camera techniques, Böhm’s approach to photography is fluid and expansive, adapting to the particular inquiries of each series.

    When is a photograph a photograph? Isn’t a sun-bleached patch of lawn actually also the result of a photographic process? When does a photo transpire? When a lens has opened and shut? Or at the moment an image first materializes in the developer? Possible ways of defining what a photo can be have become even more diverse since camera-produced digital images can be represented in binary codes and pixels.

Barbara Wolff (*1980) and Katharina Stöver (*1982) have worked together as Peles Empire for nine years – their photographic appropriations of this “edifice of copies” and their subsequent ongoing spatial interpretations of the source material constitute a central point of departure for their works.

A moment of pause, to focus on our senses, and let our brain slow down and stop focusing on discourses and extra ordinary events so that we can finally observe what we are all made of, what we all have in common and share, but never take the time notice in the permanent race we are trapped in.
