THE SUMMER OF CHINA 中国的夏天 | Galerie Eigenheim | 06.07.-17.08.2019

until 17.08. | #2515ARTatBerlin  | Galerie Eigenheim shows from 6th July 2019 the exhibition THE SUMMER OF CHINA 中国的夏天 – Forget it Jake it´s Chinatown – from KTV to Malatang – the China connection with the artists Frederik Foert, Konstantin Bayer and guests 忘了杰克是唐人街 – 从KTV到马拉唐 – 中国的联系.

For more than 10 years EIGENHEIM Weimar/Berlin has had an intensive connection to China. One reason for the location of the new Berlin gallery rooms in Kantstraße 28 in Charlottenburg, in the middle of the historically grown Chinese Quarter. This street is home to numerous Asian shops and specialty restaurants, which is why Kantstrasse and the surrounding area are popularly known as Chinatown. The first Chinese came to Berlin Charlottenburg at the beginning of the 20th century to study at the nearby universities. Already in 1902 the Association of Chinese Students was located in Kantstraße 118 and the Chinese Embassy was at that time on Kurfürstendamm. This cultural concentration has continued to this day.

The exhibition aims to build on this parallel between gallery programming and location and to bring together the artists of the house as well as guest artists with a Chinese background. It would not be a real OWN HOME exhibition, however, if it were not extended in content. Thus, Konstantin Bayer and Frederik Foert plan the direct inclusion of the Chinese culture of the neighbourhood – karaoke evenings, readings, artist talks and dumpling workshops will turn the exhibition into an experience space and meeting place. In this sense, Konstantin Bayer will show a karaoke stage on which visitors can step out of everyday life for a moment and, as a stage star, think their way into the world of the popular and the beautiful. The karaoke stage plays with the ideal images of today. Pop culture as a model – television and You Tube provide the masses with an image of love and light-heartedness. The karaoke stage is an exaggerated image of this state of longing.

In addition to video and installation work, Frederik Foert takes up the historically grown proximity to Chinese culture in Charlottenburg in particular with a light box. In Foert’s manner of appropriating quotations, he refers to a legendary but lost advertising poster on Budapester Straße. On this poster, Harald Juhnke, the crispy Peking duck in front of him, advertised the then oldest Chinese restaurant in the city of Tai Tung. The picture became an icon. Thousands of passers-by saw it every day. It can no longer be found in this place, it had to make way for the renovation of the bikini house. But Frederik Foert did not miss this cultural loss and brings it back to the present.

The search for a connection between past and present is also a guide through the artistic work of the guests invited by Bayer and Foert to the exhibition. Rao Fu’s visual worlds are shaped by the different cultures of the East and the West. Born in Beijing, he came to Dresden at the beginning of 2002 to study painting. Many aspects of the composition and the brushstroke have references to traditional Chinese ink painting. The motifs used, however, contain strong borrowings from German Romanticism. The artist Wang Yuhong shows still lifes in which she deals with the present necessity of finding new gender roles. Tianhong Sheng studied painting at the CAFA in Beijing and at the Düsseldorf Art Academy. He shows a tabloid consisting of 160 single pictures, which shows small, red ink drawings of city views, humorous everyday scenes, idols from film and art history, text fragments from the ideologically shaped Chinese everyday life and thus reveals us an insight into a distant cultural circle. In his current series, Caucasso Lee Jun deals with various historical events in China. The photograph shown here is entitled 1949 – the year the People’s Republic of China was founded. An extensive supporting programme rounds off the exhibition. We look forward to your visit.

Accompanying in the salon of the gallery EIGENHEIM BERLIN:
CAUCASSO LEE JUN – Fotografie

Caucasso Lee Jun’s experimental photographs take up everyday moments of China’s rapidly changing culture on the one hand, and on the other, in his latest series he stages people in historical environments, thus dealing sensitively and poetically with China’s history of development. His photographs have a historical character. This is achieved by the fact that his works are without exception hand-made darkroom handprints and since he uses his very own technique to capture the essence of a process in Henri Cartier-Bresson’s manner. Thus Lee Jun simultaneously exposes a camera of the same type to both hands, equipped with the same film material, free from the wrist and focusing on the motif point. According to his own film development, he works with the magnification in the sandwich process – superimposes the two negatives and chooses a new image focus by shifting them. Depending on which part of the picture he focuses on, perspective, movement and time delay create doublings and artefacts. Parallax, accommodation and convergence are recreated and artistically processed as part of human perception. More about the artist and his work can be found in this catalogue.
