Art, The Transcendent Function and Jungian Psychology by Matthew Kopp
22 November – Wed/Mi 18:00
Carl Gustav Jung introduced the idea of individuation as a psychological and artistic process. This process is a movement away from our persona or mask we wear for society – toward the underlying vitality of our greater selves. The idea is based on the fact that we often project unwanted or undeveloped aspects of ourselves onto other people, places and things.

4 – 30 Nov Matthew Kopp & Jimmy Wilnewic
The work of Jimmy Wilnewic and Matthew Kopp draw from the traditions of surrealism, expressionism and outsider art.
Jimmy Wilnewic’s work employs expressionistic line and color sprinkled with glittery camp. Surrealistic landscapes are often inhabited by unusual creatures and humorous oddities.
Matthew Kopp creates totemistic portraits revealing splintered introjects, alter personalities, bizarre deities, and pensive expressive abstractions
The painting, prints and drawings of both artists explore uncanny symbolic images that are psychological in tone and content.

Niels Kalk // Absurd Ditties //
The world is an absurd and extraordinarily silly place, with everyone taking themselves very seriously. From this point of view, Berlin-based collage artist Niels Kalk will take you to a world of his own, where logic mixes with illogic and where quirky looking characters find themselves in often meaningless and absurd situations.

Distant Electricity interrogates a struggling sense of ethereal belonging. A call to explore the convocation of hegemonized bodies recounting the taste of intimate light, to rediscover currents honed from the immaterial world. A sentimental approach to refuel the fundamental feelings, tap into the forgotten rituals of electronic emotions, in the circuit of polluted poetry of power-play pathways. That which reimagines the pursuit for continuity for communities with esoteric philosophies. A look at the layers that we host; the hanging hierarchies of monopolised politics, hand-me-downs from fashion to laws to curricula, shaky spout economies and belted religions that envelope faster than we could unravel our identities from 21st century Africa ruminates on a common connection to traditional practices which webs the dream dance of ancestral spirits, weaving the sacred touch into daily facets.
