How did it get so late so soon
Opening Dec 06, 2013 at 07:00 pm
Start date Dec 07, 2013
End date Feb 16, 2014

Sofia Hultén (born 1972 in Stockholm, lives in Berlin) delicately occupies herself in her videos, installations, sculptures and photographs with the wide variety of opportunities for action. By reconstructing or rearranging courses of events she explores in the process banal everyday procedures like eating an apple as well as the character and history of profane objects with little value like a worn piece of wood or an old toolbox she finds at construction or demolition sites. She hence regularly succeeds in breaking through conventional patterns of perception and tracing unknown dimensions in the everyday. Along with the 2009 Kunstfond Grant and other prizes, Sofia Hultén received the 2011 Moderna Museets Vänner Sculpture Award and participated in international group exhibitions at the National Gallery of Iceland (2012) and the Today Art Museum Beijing (2010). Her work has also been seen at solo shows organised by the Langen Foundation, Neuss (2012), the Künstlerhaus Bremen (2008) and the Kunstverein Nürnberg (2007). The exhibition catalogue will e published in early 2014.

Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen

Space Fiction & The Archive
Opening Dec 06, 2013 at 07:00 pm
Start date Dec 07, 2013
End date Feb 16, 2014

Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen explores a forgotten landmark and its history in her multi-part installation Space Fiction & the Archives: the world’s first UFO landing pad. Built in the Canadian town of St. Paul, Alberta, on the occasion of the celebrations honouring Canada’s centennial in 1967, it was intended to symbolise the country’s cosmo(s)politanism. At a time of extreme political tension in the United States, Europe and the former Soviet Union, Canada was undergoing a period of festive euphoria, hosting Expo ’67 in Montreal and becoming a pioneer of multiculturalism with its demonstrative urbanity. Nguyen’s exhibition encompassing a film (1967: A People Kind of Place) and a collection of documents, photographs and sculptures takes the viewer on a trip back through time to this incongruous episode of Canadian history. Science fiction and identity politics enter in the process into an unconventional relationship that poses questions regarding the ideological structure of a multicultural society and the concept of the “alien”. Jacqueline Hoang Nguyen (born 1979 in Montreal, lives in Brooklyn and Stockholm) studied in Montreal, Malmö and New York City, and has already been awarded a number of prizes and grants, including from the Canada Council for the Arts (2012) and Iaspis, Swedish Arts Grants Committee (2010). Her most recent solo exhibitions could be seen at VOX: Centre de l'image contemporaine, Montreal (2012) and the Skånska Konstmuseum, Lund (2009).

The Air of Songs

Opening Dec 06, 2013 at 07:00 pm
Start date Dec 07, 2013
End date Jan 24, 2014

The international group exhibition The Air of Songs is the materialized portrayal of the bonds that have sprung from the activities surrounding the AIR CELEIA artist’s residency programme at the Center for Contemporary Arts in Celje. The year 2014 will see the 10th anniversary of its implementation, and with it the aspiration to meet up again with the foreign artists that were hosted in Celje, bringing together also the Slovene artists that were given, through the joint partnership, the opportunity to live and work in Ireland as part of the artist’s residency at Flax Art Studios in Belfast. The Air of Songs is therefore an exhibition that is primarily conceived with the aim to re-actualize the existing international links. This includes work created after the residency in either Celje or Belfast, hence offering an insight into the most recent art practice of the participating artists. The works which are diverse in subject matter (from addressing scientifically unprovable phenomena such as the paranormal field, to the reinterpretation of events from the past or exposing the topical issues of today, the power of the entertainment industry in forming a collective consciousness, the effects of consumerism on individual subjectivity and the natural environment ...) all share an explicit use of sound, various ways of using the voice, music, singing … And this is also where the title of the exhibition comes from.

Der Portikus präsentiert eine Ausstellung mit Arbeiten von Amelie von Wulffen: Gezeigt werden neue Bilder, eine Diashow ihres jüngsten Comics und eine Werkgruppe bemalter Stühle. Eine solche Vielfalt an unterschiedlichen Medien, die für von Wulffens künstlerische Praxis charakteristisch ist, war bislang nur selten zu sehen. Insofern kann diese Ausstellung durchaus als Modell für die unterschiedlichen medialen Verfahren betrachtet werden, die zum Repertoire der Künstlerin zählen. Amelie von Wulffen entwirft für den Portikus eine exklusive Edition. Portikus is presenting an exhibition by Amelie von Wulffen, showing recent paintings, a slideshow of her latest comic, and a group of painted chairs. It has only happened on rare occasions that this variety of media, which is deeply rooted in von Wulffen’s practice, has been exhibited in this way. This way, the exhibition becomes somewhat of a prototype for the different genres in which the artist operates. Amelie von Wulffen is creating a unique artist edition for Portikus.

Start date Nov 30, 2013
End date Feb 16, 2014

James Welling (*1951) legt seit 35 Jahren Werkgruppe um Werkgruppe mit sehr schöner und zugleich herausfordernder Fotografie vor. Er agiert im vielfältigen, "zwiespältigen" Feld zwischen Malerei, Skulptur und traditioneller Fotografie. Seit Mitte der 1970er Jahre hat er einen Fächer von Fragestellungen und Feldern aufgeworfen: Er spielt mit der Spannung zwischen Realismus und Transparenz, Abstraktion und Repräsentation, dem Optischen und dem Beschreibenden, dem persönlichen und dem kulturellen Gedächtnis, und natürlich auch mit der physikalischen und chemischen Natur der Fotografie. Sein Infragestellen von Gegebenem, die Zweifel und die Lust, das Vergangene und das Bestehende mit neuen künstlerisch-fotografischen Behauptungen herauszufordern, wirken sich direkt und aufregend auf sein Werk aus. In Zusammenarbeit mit dem Cincinnati Art Museum. James Welling (*1951) is an artist whose work occupies the grey areas between painting, sculpture, and traditional photography. For over 40 years his work has addressed the theme of representation and abstraction in the visual image. By critics, artists, and collectors alike he is considered a central figure in international contemporary photography. In addition to presenting Welling’s documentary oriented work, which follows the tradition of classical artistic photography, as exemplified by the work of Paul Strand, the exhibition Autograph also includes his abstract photograms. Organized in collaboration with Cincinnati Art Museum.

Am Samstag, 7.12., 18 Uhr wird in der Galerie Wack in Anwesenheit des Künstlers die Ausstellung Werner Haypeter eröffnet. Gezeigt werden Arbeiten aus dem Zeitraum 1991 bis 2013, die die Entwicklung im Schaffen des bekannten Bonner Künstlers deutlich machen. Bei aller Klarheit und Strenge, die Haypeters Papierarbeiten, ebenso seine Werke aus Kunststoff kennzeichnen, bleiben wesentliche Elemente bewusst verborgen, ja "rätselhaft" – aber doch vorstellbar. Umso stärker fühlt sich der Betrachter herausgefordert, selbst weiterzudenken und die Präsenz der Kunstwerke im Raum zu ergründen. Zur Eröffnung der Ausstellung spricht Dr. Annette Reich vom Museum Pfalzgalerie Kaiserslautern, wo parallel bis 2.3.14 die Ausstellung "HAYPETER raum maß-geblich" gezeigt wird.

Start date Nov 29, 2013
End date Jan 31, 2014

This is Marcus Jansen’s first Italian solo show. On display are 20 small- and large-scale canvases presenting not only Jansen’s latest works, some of which have been created especially for Milan, but also some not-so-recent works to give a more complete understanding of the US artist, who is new to the Italian public. Discovered by Jerome A. Donson, who used to oversee travelling shows for MOMA New York, Jansen is now an established artist, defined by many as a pioneer of Expressionist urban landscape painting. His most prestigious acknowledgements include Best US Artist in 2011 and working with Absolut Vodka. His works also are on display at the Moscow Museum of Modern Art (MMOMA), Taiwan National Museum of Fine Arts and the Smithsonian Institution in Washington DC. Jansen’s work is configured as an urban tale that unfolds amid mystery and restlessness. What emerges at first glance – a work with an intense surreal metropolitan atmosphere inhabited by both conscious and unconscious – is confirmed in the technique used by the artist, who deals with the creative act like a free flow issuing forth directly from the unconscious, without preparatory sketches. This technique allows him to recreate an original universe where vastly dissimilar figures amalgamate into one complex framework, in an expression of the deeply interconnected world we live in.

Slow Talk
Opening Nov 21, 2013 at 07:30 pm
Start date Nov 21, 2013
End date Jan 25, 2014

The exhibition 'Slow Talk' - the first individual show of this photographer in Spain - will be composed of twenty-eight images in which his camera captures serene and fragile moments in which the invisible presence of life is revealed. The selection comprises pieces from six of his most representative series, where white is predominant. This is the case with Portraits of Time, created in 1998. In this series, Koo creates compositions that eliminate the spatial context and do not focus on particular objects but rather on the textures and sensations of a blank wall. "The works shown in this exhibition are the result of an accumulation of personal journeys through the careful observation of nature and myself", explains the artist. "The notable void and emptiness in the images deliver susceptibilities of the mind’s eye to viewers". The exhibition will also include work from his series White and Pencil of Nature, which depict white walls and snow covered ground subtly marked by vegetation. The show, which will be open at Ivorypress until 25 January 2014, performs more recent works from the series Vessel; white porcelain objects captured by a large-format camera and long exposure times in order to reproduce their shape in a delicate and austere way.
