until 14.05. | #3398ARTatBerlin | Galerie Inga Kondeyne – Raum für Zeichnung presents from 2. April 2022 the exhibition PRETTY SHINY STUFF by the artist Astrid Köppe. 

As a viewer of Astrid Köppe’s drawings, one becomes an observer of an artistic amoeba world of sheer inexhaustible gestalt development, whose irritating, sometimes bizarre otherness seems at the same time often enough to be underlaid with a wink and thus invites one to a voyage of discovery of its own kind. Naturally grown forms, reduced to their origins, are imaginatively reshaped by her. With the keyboard of drawing, combined with striking colour settings – brilliant radiance sometimes appears in passing – she brings forth surprising new existences. Endless in its individual manifestations, one follows the other over the years, as one suspects when leafing through the newly published catalogue.

The exhibition will be accompanied by the catalogue “PRETTY SHINY STUFF”, published by Galerie Carolyn Heinz (Hamburg); it contains around 90 illustrations and a text by Andreas Schalhorn: Aus der Wunderkammer der Kunst.
