Kristina Schuldt Video

In this interview, Kristina Schuldt is giving significant insight into her exhibition BEBEN at our gallery in Leipzig.

"The common ground in the exhibition is an awakening, this tremor - as the titles says - makes you wake up to reality.“ (Kristina Schuldt)

Kristina Schuldt (*1982 in Moscow) lives and works in Leipzig and is one of the major female painters. Her work embodies influences from Post-Impressionism, Cubism and late Futurism. In her desire to break away from conventional methods of painting and the amenities of representational art, Schuldt discards classical rules of perspective, color and composition to encompass her own visions, while realizing a unique aesthetic with geometric shapes and new forms of abstraction.

"The images find their way to me, have to go through me and then they land on the canvas."

In conversation with Neo Rauch in Leipzig

Neo Rauch doesn’t like to be in the spotlight - in an intimate, relaxed interview in his studio the artist is talking about the development of his artworks, his journey to become a professional artist, former exhibitions e.g. at the Kunstmuseum Wolfsburg in Germany (2006), at the Metropolitan Art Museum in New York (2007) or at the Uffizi/Palazzo Pitti in Florence (2019). How did the curated shows influence his view on his works and what does the word „painting“ mean to Neo Rauch?

The talk is in German, you will find a translation in English as PDF here.

Birgit Brenner Video

Apocalypse Now! The artist Birgit Brenner specializes in catastrophes large and small. Have an insight into her solo show at Museum im Kleihues-Bau Kornwestheim.

In tiny ink drawings as well as huge spatial installations, Brenner poses questions: Why can't politicians find a solution to the global crises? Why do we revolve so unwaveringly around ourselves?The exhibition in Kornwestheim could therefore be pitch-black. But it isn't, because the artist always includes a good dose of black humor.

Gabrielle Kruger Video

It's worth taking a look behind the scenes – South African artist Gabrielle Kruger takes us into her studio and shows us her very individual way of working.

Gabrielle Kruger's work has already been shown in several group exhibitions at our gallery in Leipzig. Now we are also presenting her work on our stand at the fair in Cape Town, where the South African artist also lives and works.
Gabrielle Kruger has developed a process where the paint mimics the viscosity of glue when wet and the elasticity of rubber when dry. Drawn to the malleability of her chosen medium, the artist pushes and plays with the limits of acrylic paint.
You can now look over her shoulder as she creates her works using this exciting technique. So dive in and enjoy Gabrielle Kruger's weave!

In the second part of the video, Ricarda Roggan is taking us into her studio for an exclusive sneak peek into the exhibtion making.

"It is always a conversation with the things or with the spaces, so that I can ask questions like, “What's going on here and why is it like this? And why are there such strange, such scratch marks in these clay walls?” Who was there 100, 200 years ago?” I'm just incredibly interested in that." (Ricarda Roggan)

In this video the artist is giving you a tour through his exhibition Facing the Light at our Berlin gallery and great insight into his work series of oil on paper and iPad drawings.
"In fact what impresses me about painting is that you can go back 40,000 years and these images are still there and, above all, they still reach us. So the drawings permeate everything - it reaches and touches us. And that's a form of communication that I think only exists once." (Stefan Guggisberg)

Ulrike Theusner Video

In this interview, Ulrike Theusner is taking you with her to Mahagonny. Enjoy!

Mahagonny – that’s the city of unbridled hedonism invented by Bertolt Brecht and Kurt Weill, where having no money is a crime punished by death. Ulrike Theusner has turned her years of interest in Mahagonny into her current exhibition. She conceived an oversized fictional studio wall on which she has pinned pastels and drawing, prints, and photographs, all shreds of memories of her life between Europe and the United States.
"All images are of course always closely related to my current emotional state, to my experience, to life itself. You can't put it into words very well, but if something is transferred, then I've definitely achieved what I wanted, which is to transport something and to touch the emotional level of the viewer. That's what art is for."

David Schnell Video

Throwback: Join us for a tour through Schnell's exhibition in Leipzig 2021. We associate the resounding word S T E R E O with the world of sound and music. The letters are spaced out on the amplifier of the audio system, and the lowering of the needle on the record starts a crackle; a short wait, and then, the instruments and sounds coming from the left and right open up a space.

The pleasure of listening to music on a good stereo system has a lot to do with looking at David Schnell’s pictures. The quality of the stereo system plays an important role here, because a high-quality system makes the details that play the space ring out properly.
