The exhibition "Eight for Infinity" presents a selected insight into the range of contemporary art production.

Curated by Sascha Boldt.

About

∞:

"Infinity"is a concept that challenges the limits of human imagination.

The lying 8 (∞) as a typographic sign symbolizes on the one hand the infinite or boundlessness which on the other hand is closed and connected in itself in the form of a loop.

The eight selected contributors to the exhibition form markers in the broad field of contemporary art as a context with infinite attributions.

Minor Alexander creates images and objects flocked with velvety material, thereby breaking the boundaries between painterly and sculptural methods.

Sascha Boldt combines digital and analogue image sources in his workgroup of "Hybrid Constructions" in a multi-layered form in order to re-examine the condition of reality nowadays.

Wolfgang Flad produces lacquered relief pictures whose surfaces are interspersed by the mortised transcriptions of brushstrokes which put the outcome into an extended context.

Luke Glinkowskis relief-like paintings consist mainly of mounted tiles, which are pictorially reworked through various processes and recite existing places.

Christoph Neumann uses mobile light equipment for his photographs to create excessive contrasts and boost the depicted content dynamically and powerful.

Ann Schomburg deals with the interweaving of the presence as “Zeitgeist”, social media and art in the context of "Life immitates Art".

Alexander Skorobogatov gives his work a unique surface through the usage of oil paint, silicone and pigments, which particularly highlights the object-oriented component of the depicted.

Gabriel Vormstein modifies daily newspapers to papmaché, which he fixes with dried flowers on canvases. He overworks the surface with printing techniques to produce extraordinary interwoven image spaces.
