Photography, sculpture, wall objects – the exhibition „a glimpse of…“ shows works in different media and sheds some light on the latest developments in the works of some of the gallery’s artists: insect-like wire sculptures by Kathrin Haaßengier stir and send out light signals. Two series by Olaf Kreinsen not exhibited yet give unexpected insights in two cities – the serie „città eterna“ (2013) show the mystical side and the omnipresence of art of the eternal city of Rome, while „Schwarze Materie“ (black matter) transports the viewer into the 20s of the last century, an ethetic subtext underlying Kreinsens photos of Vienna taken in 2015.
Simon Halfmeyer also takes part in the exhibition with new works after having created an exuberant urban jungle of wall drawings, sculptures and prints in the gallery in 2014. Last but not least Eduard Zent gives a preview of the solo exhibition coming up in February 2016. Two works from the award winning series „Moderne | Tradition“ will be on show with the complete series following in the solo exhibition, including the latest, hitherto not exhibited works. The images of individuals in the balancing act between two cultures: Wearing the costumes brought with them from their country of origin they display accessories from their everyday life in Germany of relevance to themselves. In their calm serenity and grandeur they, despite being photographs, are reminiscent of netherlandish baroque portrait painting.
