SO UND SO

JILL COLCHESTER – 9./10. MARCH 
9th   : 2pm – 8pm, with a private view, 6pm to 8pm
10th :  2pm – 6pm.

How are drawn figures regarded?

Are they seen, or perceived, as un-named sexual objects or are they seen as the epitome of womanhood, fulsome, feminine and curvaceous. Do we, the viewer, change our perceptions of who they are, as we gaze at them, and do they, the drawn figures, appear to change in their pose from this way to that. What kind of mental and visual adjustments do we make when we view them?

Jill Colchester is challenging our perceptions of young women. She is celebrating their dynamism, their grace, their fluidity and youth.

This pop-up exhibition is fleeting in time, catching glimpses of the posed model, who turns this way and that.

The English translation of So und So, is this way and that. The models are drawn looking this way or that way. However, in English, So and So means ‘a person or thing whose name the speaker does not need to specify or does not know or remember’. The double entendre in the title challenges us to rethink our perceptions of women, how they move and how they are seen.

Jill trained in Contemporary Dance and is fascinated with movement and body language. She lives and exhibits in the UK, where she tutors adults on her 60-week drawing course, with Abingdon & Witney College, Oxfordshire.

Oscar Ray – This is my way to be free

Im Selbstfindungsprozess entstand die eigene Technik in Nebeneinander und Gegenüberstellungen, Ideen und Bildern in Malerei, Skulpturen, StreetArt und Fotografie Ausdruck zu verleihen. Es gibt keine Kluft zwischen Kunst und Leben für Oscar Rey, es ist Ausdruck von Erleben und Gefühlen, von Liebe oder Gleichgültigkeit. Die Arbeiten zu betrachten ist wie in einem Tagebuch lesen aus Politik, Anspruchslosigkeit, Liebe, Farbenfreude, Musik. Kunst ist sein Lebensweg . Materielle Fundstücke oder digitale Neuerungen bieten neue Herausforderungen in seiner Arbeit . Der Stil ist wie ein Schwamm, der Veränderungen absorbiert. Die Konstante durch sämtliche Experimente ist die Liebe zum Expressionismus, die Synthese die Verwendung von Mischtechniken. 3 Die Arbeiten zu betrachten ist wie in einem Tagebuch lesen aus Politik, Anspruchslosigkeit, Liebe, Farbenfreude, Musik.

 “I’m an artist graduate at the Pablo Picasso Art School of Coruña. I have worked, traveled and exhibited for the last 10 years around Spain, Italy, UK and Germany trying to find myself and developing a technique based on the juxtaposition of images and ideas that applied to my painting, sculpture, street art and photography work. There is no gap between my life and my art, I talk about what I feel, about what I hate and what I love. See my work is like read a diary in pictures full of politics,primitivism,love,colors, and music. Art has always been a way of life, also an outlet for me. Any physical or digital mean is a new weapon to work with, and my style is like a sponge absorbing changes. If there’s something that hasn’t changed in this time is my love for the Expressionism, the synthesis and the use of mix techniques. Since 2011 I live and work in Berlin.”

ICH BIN DER FLUSS

Tantão

Der Künstler ist anwesend.

 Vernissage:   23.2., 20:00 Uhr

Eröffnungsperformance : Jonas Ohlsson / Sound Artist

Ausstellung: 24.02. – 02.03 • 12 – 22 Uhr

und nach Vereinbarung.

Tantão is a visual performer, painter and musician from São Gonçalo, in the opposite side of the bay toward Rio de Janeiro. After studying classical violin in his youth, he followed both his father and grandfather steps and worked for some time as a draftsman in a shipyard. He also ran a paralel music career playing keyboards and synths with his former band Black Future – which recorded an LP in 1988 and split a year later, after the label’s director was fired for their record being considered ‘too experimental’. Now it’s worth a fortune as only 5000 copies were printed and it became a cult. All the music parts of the record were made by him and the lyrics were made by his partner Satanésio, who was the lead singer. Their hit single “Eu sou Rio”, which named the film, had a new relese in 2006 as part of a compilation of Brazilian post-punk songs produced by the Berlin-based label Man Recordings named Sanguinho Novo, in 2006. 

A short time after their house was set on fire (Tantão lost his violin but the paintings were incredibly safe) the band split and he was by himself stepping in between the borders of visual arts and sound performance. His drawing and painting have been heavily influenced by his work on the naval industry as well as the street art and his passionate relationship with the history of modern painting and contemporary art. It’s impossible to define the limits between his musical performance and visual work, as he always claims that his art is anywhere he goes. Tantão’s work fit perfectly the increasing Noise scene of Rio and it’s subjacences in the underworld – being himself an icon of the art scene in town ever since the 80’s, as well as the ever growing queer club scene. He has performed alongside groups like Chelpa Ferro, Demillus & Duloren, John Merrick Experience, DEDO and many others before creating his new band, Tantão e os Fita, with Cainã Bomilcar and Abel Duarte. 

Now he’s the frontman and their first record, made in 2017, is a nightclub hit in Brazil. As a painter he’s had collective and individual shows in many cities in Brazil and also in Holland, where he’s been twice in an art residence program promoted by the Mondriaan Foudation between 2010 and 11. His painting range from abstract to concrete, using all kinds of different techniques and materials. Now his friends Anne and Gabraz, a filmmaking documentary duo, have made a film with him and the first international screening will take place in the Berlinale’s Forum Expanded, in february 2018
