KRISENSKULPTUREN

Tobias Becker and Astrid Piethan
sculpture/photography, March/April 2020 

The current situation of quarantine forces us to withdraw into our own four walls. The homeliness of one’s own space, after a time of forced confinement, is not a gift, since it is always formulated in correspondence to the outside, which has suddenly fallen away. The homely is taken away from the familiar and living spaces slowly become blurred with internal worlds of thought. No conclusion can be found, since there is no end. Unteathered thoughts take over in this everyday life that has gone out of control, they stand as speculative objects in the room, charged but without direction.

The modelling of negative moulds in clay is an act of searching. One works blindly, attention entirely focused on the sense of touch, which is experiencing a strange renaissance these days. The gestures of this search are manifested in the plaster cast. They become tangible as sculptures, but do not explain themselves. On the contrary, they carry an uncontrolled life of their own because they enter into a dialogue with the space that surrounds them. As unpredictable actors, they infiltrate everyday rituals and courses of action and thus fuse physical and psychological space.

We cordially invite you and you to our last event. To our finissage.
Fin. The end of a film. Before the last picture rolls into the spool, celebrate the moment, let the experience linger, rejoice.
10 years of Opekta studios, 10 years of art, music, films and talks. 10 years of living community.

Opekta Ateliers closes its doors at the end of January 2020 and is for the time being without new effects.
a involuntary farewell from our rooms after doubling the rent.
With our last finissage and a sculptural dinner, the artists of Opekta Ateliers bid farewell to an uncertain future.

SMART NATURE

Opening: SAturday, 9th of June, 7 pm

Duration: 9.06.-11.08 2018, Opening Hours: Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday, 2-6 pm, Thursday 4-8 pm,, Saturday 11 am -3 pm

Today, in the early 21st century, nature appears to us no more as the wild, untouched and unknown side of our society. Today nature has literally been made legible, programmable and usable. Many things today seem to have been artificially awakened to new life - also and especially in nature.

But where exactly do the new boundaries between artificial life and inanimate nature lie today? What fantasies are embodied in a dead piece of plastic grass? How can alum, an inorganic salt compound, suddenly be transformed into images of artificially produced growth?

In their works, the participating artists question the changing concept of nature in different ways. They often work at the interfaces between artificiality and nature and reveal how our relationship to nature has shifted as a result of the aesthetic experience of artificial growth processes. "smart nature" does not formulate a vision, but a reality that has become artificial creation and makes many things seem possible. Never before has our current image of nature been so artificial and art so unnatural as it is today.

Participating artists:
Tobias Becker, Fabian Bürgy, Andreas Gehlen, Vlatka Horvat, Gereon Krebber, Dominique Koch, Peter Möller, Elisabeth Windisch

DRAWN TO AFFECT

Opening: 19th November, 5-7 pm

Show dates:
Saturday 19th - 28th November 2016
(by appointment)

This show offers an experimental platform for a group of 7 artists for whom drawing plays an important role. Each artist has invited someone else (artist / writer / scientist / architect etc) to respond to one of their drawings - be it a sketch, a resolved work or a part extracted from another project. The purpose of these pairings is to explore the dialogue that takes place when a drawing is translated and re-formed. The collection of works on show are collaborative and singular objects, some of which operate in tandem, while others quietly sit alone disconnected from their origins.
