On the 24th and 25th of March, GlogauAIR invites once more all the art lovers or casual passersby to enjoy two days celebrating art production and creative ideas. Our 11 international resident artist will exhibit brand new projects which integrate both their previous research-focus and their journey in a new city. Also, GlogauAIR invited the collective COVEN BERLIN to curate “The Sprawls”, an unmissable exhibition focused on gender constrictions and body policing beautifully expressed by the orchestration of multi-disciplinary art works. On the second day of the event, a curators’ talk will further fuel this atmosphere of rebellion through constant experimentation and ongoing questioning that GloguAIR, as a laboratory of ideas, has been deeply committed to.
The visitors will have the opportunity of enjoying the presence of the artists themselves, as well as having direct access to their latest and freshest creations, inspired by their personal and artistic experience of inhabiting the city. The duo Maximilien Pyée and Alexandre Félix are currently exploring the potential of producing art collectively as a way to strengthen social bonds, while David Gonçalves reflects on what it means to be nomadic, by stripping out the excess and highlighting the beauty of the essential and of the practical.
The artist Tadasuke Jinno has been leading an approach to visual art that challenges the viewer through the usage of mechanisms that create discordance between reality and human’s sense of perception. At the same time, Ewa Kubiak is working on testing the limits of communication of textual and visual messages, and the degree of misleading illusion that is created by means of intentionally created settings.
The painter Uzma Sultan plunges into a social analysis of the cultures she is inserted in, at the same time that the also painter Hyoyoun Lee leads a deep but at the same time metaphysical search for already faded and fragmented anonymous stories lost in time.
By using textiles as her main work material, Natalia Urnia charges each thread contained in fabric with meaningful connotations of memory, time and place of belonging – all that we hold close to us and that, in a way, dresses and shapes our core common human nature into a variety of specific identities. Also working with the intersection of intimate personal and collective narratives, Ilyn Wong sets off to explore the complexity of multiple stories and layers that exist within and around the main narratives, which, because the hidden personal stories are forgotten, tend to be often overly simplified.
Finally, by using two completely different approaches, the artists Laurent Trezegnies and Roxanne Nesbitt deconstruct the sense of the “ordinary”, highlighting its peculiarities and hidden/forgotten potential.
