until 16.06. | #1975ARTatBerlin | Galerie Gilla Lörcher shows from 21st April 2018 the group exhibition “018 geometric” with the artists Ivan Liovik Ebel, Ab van Hanegem and Francisco Rozas.
Galerie Gilla Loercher is very pleased to present the group show “018 geometric” including paintings and objects inspired by geometry of the following artists: Ivan Liovik Ebel, Ab van Hanegem and Francisco Rozas.
The phrase that maybe best describes Ivan Liovik Ebel´s work in a nutshell is “the spaces in between”. For him personally, the term “intermediate spaces” refers to a sort of investigation of the relativity of perception, of forms of non-distinguishability as well as the relationship between time and space. Ebel works with many different media like painting, print, installation, sculpture or performance. In each case, he is interested in a certain moment of indeterminacy and uncertainty, one in which one no longer knows exactly what one is actually looking at. He is always concerned with a very delicate situation, which can often only be observed upon taking a closer look. Ivan Liovik Ebel (born in 1983) lives and works in Berlin. He received his Masters in Contemporary Arts Practice from the Bern University of the Arts. In 2015 Ivan Liovik Ebel was nominated for the Berlin Art Prize.
His work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions at Kunsthaus Langenthal (CH), Kunsthalle Bern (CH), Kunstmuseum Bern (CH), Neue Galerie, London (GB) and Bern (CH), Marks Blond Project, Bern (CH), ZQM Projektraum, Berlin (DE), Lage Egal Projektraum, Berlin (DE), Galerie Widmer Theodoridis, Zürich (CH), Annka Kultys Gallery, London (GB), Galerie Valérie Delaunay / Paris (F), Espace Art & Essai, Rennes (F), Galerie Gilla Lörcher I Contemporary Art, Berlin (DE), among many others and at art fairs POSITIONS art fair 2014 (booth Galerie Gilla Lörcher), Art Karlsruhe 2017 (booth Galerie Gilla Lörcher 2017).
Art historian Constanze Musterer about Ab`s work: „Over-dimensional brush marks stretch across the canvas, tubes of colour appear to explode, and organic forms in black and white remind one of photocopied blueprints of architectural elements. Suddenly, a tangible and confusing colour field strengthens the general impression of three-dimensionality within the interaction of colour, line and direction. As a viewer, one quickly has the impression of being more in than in front of the paintings, and submits to the whirlpool of different perspectives. Overlaying colour trails repeatedly lead into blind alleys, yet the artist skilfully, and masterfully in his painting, opens up a loop hole into the next dimension. The journey races further into the world of possibilities and illusions which appear for a moment to be quite real.“
Ab van Hanegem (born 1960) studied at Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten St. Joost (Breda, NL) and at Rijksacademie (Amsterdam, NL). He lives and works in Amsterdam and Berlin. Ab van Hanegem was awarded the Stiftung Vordemberge-Gildewart stipend and the Charlotte Köhler award. His works have been shown in numerous institutions and galleries internationally (Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, NL; Drawing Center New York, US; Van Abbe Museum, Eindhoven, NL; Centraal Museum Utrecht, NL; Museum De Beijerd, Breda, NL; Museum Wiesbaden, D; Kunsthalle Recklinghausen, D; Kunstmuseum Heidenheim, D; Clemens Sels Museum, Neuss, D; City Hall de Paauw, Wassenaar, NL; Kunstverein Malkasten Düsseldorf, D; Kunstverein Koelnberg, Köln, D; Tekengenootschap Pictura, Dordrecht, NL; Galerie Art & Project, Slootdorp, NL; Vous etes ici, Amsterdam, NL; Galerie Gilla Lörcher, Berlin, D; among others) and at art fairs Art Cologne, Art Brussels, POSITIONS Berlin art fair 2014 (booth Galerie Gilla Lörcher); art Karlsruhe 2017 (booth Galerie Gilla Lörcher) and on many more occasions.
His work is part of a number of collections like KPN, Mondstudio, Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Centraal Museum in Utrecht, Collection Sanders in Amsterdam and Bouwfonds Nederlandse Gemeenten.
For some time now, Francisco Rozas has been concentrating on the constructions of big, fragile, geometric objects, that oscillate between flatness and three-dimensionality. Only on second sight the observer may realize, that the objects are created with light materials, such as card paper or paper. They embody exemplary visualisations of mathematical dependencies. For the last year´s Gallery Weekend show at Gilla Loercher, Francisco Rozas put some high objects all over the gallery as if they were models on a catwalk.
Francisco Rozas, born 1980 in Temuco, Chile. Lives and works in Berlin. The artist studied at the ARCIS University Santiago de Chile, at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf with Prof. Rita McBride and at the Universität der Künste UdK Berlin with Prof. Gregor Schneider and Art in Context (Masters Degree). He received the DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austausch-Dienst) stipend and the CONICYT (National Commission for Scientific and Technological Research) award. His work has been shown at many insitutions and galleries: Kunsthalle Bremerhaven; Al Riwaq Art Space (Manama, Bahrain); SAVVY Contemporary, Berlin; Project Space Berger Straße, Frankfurt a.M.; Katzengold, lvbg-Jubiläumsausstellung (curated by Constanze Kleiner); Galerie PANAM, art Karlsruhe 2017, Stand Galerie Gilla Lörcher; Santiago, Chile; Galerie Gilla Lörcher I Contemporary Art (Berlin) a.o. and at art fairs POSITIONS BERLIN art fair 2014 + 2015, Video Lounge; art Karlsruhe 2017 (booth Galerie Gilla Lörcher).
