Chéri Samba is born in 1956 in Kinto M´Vuila (DRC) as the elder son of a family of ten children. His father was a blacksmith and his mother a farmer. In 1972, at the age of 16, he left the village and the school to find work as a sign painter in the capital Kinshasa, on Kasa Vubu Avenue. From this circle of artists (which included Moke, Bodo, and later Samba´s younger brother Cheik Ledy among others) arose one of the most vibrant schools of popular painting in the twentieth century. In 1975 he opened his own studio. At the same time he also became an illustrator for the entertainment magazine Bilenge Info. It is at this time when he develops his signature style of combining paintings with text. His work earns him some local fame. In the early 1980s he began signing his paintings “Chéri Samba: Artiste Populaire”. Indeed, the popularity of his paintings soon went beyond Kinshasa´s city limits; by the mid 1980s his work was gaining an international audience. His breakthrough was the exhibition Les Magiciens de la Terre (curator: Jean-Hubert Martin) at the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris in 1989, which made him known internationally. Followed the Pompidou Center(Africa Remix), Fondation Cartier, Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao, The Venice Biennale, Museum Kunst Palast in Düsseldorf, National Museum of African Art in Washington DC, Museum of Fine Arts Houston, Museum Ludwig in Cologne, Provincial Museum Voor Moderne Kunst in Ostende, ….

The Danish painter and art theorizer Asger Jorn (1914-1973) is considered one of the key figures of Avant-Garde of post-war Europe. The retrospective exhibition at DIE GALERIE units approximately 50 objects, paintings, works on paper, sculptures and ceramics, thus illustrating all important creative periods from 1937 to 1972 in the life of the Danish artist. Due to its range of important periods and selection of different kind of artwork the retrospective solo show of Asger Jorn at DIE GALERIE is the by far the most outstanding of its kind. His early work of the 1930s still displays the influence of Fernand Léger, Yves Tanguy, Paul Klee, Joan Miró and Max Ernst. His concepts of an art contrary to all norms and conventions made him a leading pioneer among the new generation of artists. Asger Jorn was a decisive influence on the art and appearance of the artist group CoBrA, which he founded in 1948 together with Karel Appel, Constant, Corneille, Christian Dotremont and Joseph Noiret. Jorn's influence, as well as his questioning of artistic originality and his demand for the elimination of borders between high and low art, has left its mark on everything from Art Informel and Abstract Expressionism through Post-Modern Art.

The social and cultural conflict in China’s Islamic region is a shaded theme. Once as a young artist living in Urumqi, Wang Ling rethought and realized the contemporary Islamic culture in Xinjiang on the other side. In the series paintings "Gobi Spring", Wang Ling made a systems analysis and in-depth study on the characteristics of Islamic patterns and shapes, which commonly can be seen curved in the wall of Mosques or public buildings. In his view, the pictures transmitted Islamic culture’s self-enclosed, exclusive, aggressive temperament, in history, when this kind of complexity met out-strangers, it often exhibited with violent conflict and discomfort. The "Night-Walking" is an art performance under the background of Urumqi 7•5 Event. As a young Han, Wang Ling had ever personally experienced that riots, his spiritual world suffered severe contusion. In the deep winter 2010, he returned to the city, holding a burning candle, walking in those scarred streets. He, in the Quran words and historical shadows, was trying to find a spiritual exit transcending the racial barriers. Wang Ling's many works, implies a silent and powerful forces of darkness. He often let the fire become the protagonist of historical narrative, interwoven and reborn with the darkness. Syrian poet Adonis wrote that "fire has its own writing, but eventually reduced to ashes." as if, all the incomplete combustion of things became a certain solo proof, after those matters went in silence.

Opening speech by curator and author Jan Hoet, Gent. The restlessness, the rawness, the mysteriousness of his works are based on a field of appealing disharmony that captures one´s attention, keeps one searching and sensing. The beauty of these images is not to be found on the surface but rather in the depth of the artistic methodology. The British painter, composer, musician, poet, performance and video artist Chris Newman (*1958) has been living in Berlin since 1996 and now has his first solo exhibition at Alexander Ochs Galleries. To find the beauty in Chris Newman´s paintings, one does not need to know the background of his work. It is even less required to identify any potential remnants of narratives. It is a sense of body, a genuine unconscious and the dismissal of rational control that makes Newman´s works so lively and filled with deeper beauty.

Maureen Paley is pleased to present a new exhibition of work by Hamish Fulton, his second at the gallery. In 1973, after walking over 1000 miles in 47 days from Duncansby Head to Land´s End, Fulton made the decision to "only make art resulting from the experience of individual walks." Since then walking has formed the basis of his practice, materializing in photographs and walk-texts in various forms that result from direct engagement with the environment. Calls for political justice recur in Fulton´s work, corresponding to his commitment to individual and artistic freedom. As Fulton has stated: "A diversity of art walks can interconnect with a wide range of actions, disciplines, philosophies, environmental issues, the meditative, and politics." For the past twenty years Fulton has been devising group walks with over thirty walks realised transnationally. In 2011 Fulton undertook Slowalk (In support of Ai Weiwei) a collective action realised at Tate Modern bringing together hundreds of people walking in silent unison.

Between Mysticism and Abstraction
Opening Jul 07, 2013 at 11:00 am
Start date Jul 08, 2013
End date Aug 30, 2013

Photographer Wolfgang Bartels, born in 1948 in Hannover, Germany, shows his work "Between Mysticism and Abstraction" in the Fagus-Gallery in UNESCO World Heritage Fagus-Works in Alfeld (Leine), Germany. His sensitive pictures, worked out in decades, developed to be an affair of the heart. Bartels does not only expose things and situations, but is looking for enigmatic moods, conveys a third dimension which evokes emotion, touches mysticism and - or abstraction, suggests mysterious situations, which do not open up at first sight, often puts the question of being, goes into metaphysics, touches lyrically or poetically - or transports spiritual aspects. Both leads through his photographic work like a red thread. So he began an intensive research with the music and life of the great mystic and probably most important composer of all times, Johann Sebastian Bach. Bartels´s striving for abstraction expresses in leaving out redundant picture elements to reduce to the essential, "to get rid of the gossip", as the great photographer Robert Häusser would express, who sees in Bartels´s pictures a kinship to his work.

With her gift for delicate, empathic observation, Olga Chernysheva discovers art in the everyday. Her multimedia works tell of simple, yet wondrous people and things. Chernysheva’s work represents a new kind of realism that does not feed on a critical, subversive attitude, but is characterized by an awareness of compossibility. This relational concept, devised by Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz, holds that different statements, viewpoints, patterns of thought, and substances are compossible, meaning that it is possible for them to coexist in reality. Although not everything that can be imagined or conceived bears this potential, the real, extant world is the site or embodiment of the compossible. As such, it is also the inexhaustible source of Chernysheva’s art. In cooperation with the V-A-C Foundation Moscow, the Kunsthalle Erfurt is proud to present this major solo exhibition of Chernysheva’s works for the first time in Germany. In addition to aquarelles, drawings and paintings from recent years, the exhibition also includes photos and numerous videos, as well as several new works, which will be presented for the first time. The exhibition is accompanied by an extensive catalogue (German-English), published by Hatje Cantz Verlag.

Maureen Paley is pleased to announce an exhibition of new work at the gallery by Tim Rollins and K.O.S. Tim Rollins is an artist, teacher and activist who began his career as the assistant of the conceptual artist Joseph Kosuth. In 1979 he co-founded Group Material in New York. In the early 1980s, he taught students at Intermediate School 52 in the Bronx and went on to create the Art & Knowledge Workshop. His highly acclaimed collaboration with the members of K.O.S. (Kids of Survival) continues to this day. Rollins combines lessons in reading and writing with making artworks. The source material laid out and studied by the students generally relates to literary or musical classics, such as works by William Shakespeare, George Orwell, Ralph Ellison or Franz Schubert, but can also include comics or legal documents.
