Capsule 03 / 04: Lynette Yiadom-Boakye / Adele Röder
With the Capsule exhibitions, Haus der Kunst provides young, international, emerging artists the opportunity to show new works in a museum setting. For this format, each artist is given one exhibition space, a fact reflected in the format’s name, “capsule.” This year, the Capsules present the work of two London-based artists, Lynette Yiadom Boayke (b. 1977) and Adele Röder (b. 1980). 

Yiadom-Boakye created a series of oil paintings for the exhibition, all depicting figures in an environment that cannot be specifically located in either time or place. The dark figures, luminous shadows, the meeting of colors, and her backgrounds create a spectrum in which accents of light are pronounced. The figures’ features do not simulate particular characters, moods or situations. Yiadom-Boakye is more interested in what it is to be human than in the individual itself. 
Each painting is usually executed within one day, two at most. The act of painting as an intense, temporally-limited exercise reflects her reservations about the notion of a “masterpiece,” and the openness of her pictorial understanding.

For many years, Adele Röder has collected photographs of prehistoric tombs. The postures of the discovered skeletons and x-rayed mummies are still comprehensible and legible, transferring cultural knowledge over millennia. For her presentation, Röder developed a series of line drawings that depict postures and details of the body. These are based on circles, circle segments and L-forms, borrowed from her COMCORRÖDER project (since 2010). Infant and skeleton constitute the “physical brackets” that define human existence. Her drawings materialize in two different ways: as looped slide projections and as florescent tubes. With her study of behavior, Adele Röder combines not only past, present and future, but also social and intuitive personal knowledge.

DER ÖFFENTLICHKEIT – Von den Freunden Haus der Kunst: Laure Prouvost
Haus der Kunst is pleased to present Laure Prouvost as the upcoming artist for the annual art commission conceived especially for the Middle Hall of the building with the support and collaboration of the museum’s Gesellschaft der Freunde (society of friends). The commission DER ÖFFENTLICHKEIT at Haus der Kunst addresses a generation of artists, who have developed a clear and challenging line of artistic inquiry. Laure Prouvost (b. 1978) follows artists like Haegue Yang, Manfred Perniece and Anri Sala. In her videos, the artist employs tropes both derived from and challenging the distinct filmic languages of cinema and art, bringing corrupt reveries to life through humor and mistranslations. For this project, she will develop an immersive environment that creates a sanctuary in contrast to the strict architectonic structure of the Middle Hall.
