Painting S(e)oul (1F)

Eberhard Havekost, Frank Nitsche, Tatjana Doll, Slawomir Elsner, Thoralf Knobloch

May 31 – June 30

Painting S(e)oul presents the works of five artists from Germany who are gaining increasing attention in Europe and America. Focusing on clichéd motifs as the basis for their works and representing these motifs in a way that reflect upon our postmodern, industrial, media-saturated world, their works pay witness to the banal, sometimes brilliant, sometimes more or less tedious everyday world of our pop society. In these bodies of work poetic matter can be found alongside pop-like fetishizing, social critical realism, as well as formulations that reflect on the media and abstract visions.

Eberhard Havekost, Fank Nitsche and Thoralf Kobloch studied at the Dresden School of Visual Art and Tatjana Doll graduated from the Düsseldorf Kunstakademie. Slawomir Elsner was born in Poland and studied in Kassel. They currently live and work in Berlin and Dresden.

Are you lonesome tonight? – Yeondoo Jung (2F)

May 31 – June 30

Living in a world where any images can be easily altered or synthesized, we often find ourselves scrutinizing over the details of a beautiful picture looking for a sign of digital touch up or alteration. Since the invention of the digital camera and image editing programs, it is sometimes impossible for us to have an absolute certainty about any kind of photographic images we encounter. Yeondoo Jung’s ‘Are you lonesome tonight?’ is the artist’s commentary on our world where the real and the fake coexist, where reality is confused with simulation. Through his new series of works called “Locations,” the artist combines real landscape and staged setting to explore the boundary between real space and imaginary space, painting and photography.

Yeondoo Jung graduated from Seoul National University and Goldsmith College in London. Currently living and working in Seoul, his work has been featured in group and solo shows throughout the world, including the recent Venice Biennale in 2005.

Opening Hours: Tues-Fri 10:00am-6:00pm, Sat, Sun 10:00am-5:00pm
