until 19.06. | #3418ARTatBerlin | König Galerie (Nave) presents from 29. April 2022 the exhibiton UNINTENDED BEAUTY by the artist Xenia Hausner. The GALERIE KÖNIG is also showing an exhibition by Ukrainian artist Zhanna Kadyrova in the Chapel of ST. AGNES.

Fiction plays a significant role in the oeuvre of the artist. Her creative process is characterized by filmic and photographic methods. In preparation for her large-format paintings, Hausner builds elaborate spatial settings in her studio, which are then photographed to be used as models. These scenarios remain enigmatic and elude clear reading, like decontextualized film stills or fragments of a narrative.

Xenia Hausner’s settings are placed in a female counter-world in which vividly modelled figures represent universally valid circumstances and existential questions. Her themes and stories are primarily represented by strong, contradictory, and complex women. Standing for all gender identities, they oppose stereotypes and contrast the male gaze that has dominated art history for the longest time.

Xenia Hausner (b. 1951) is based in Vienna and Berlin. The Museum Franz Gertsch in Burgdorf, Switzerland, currently shows Hausner’s retrospective, which had previous stages at the Albertina, Vienna, and the Pushkin Museum, Moscow (2021).

GALERIE KÖNIG also presents an exhibition by Ukrainian artist Zhanna Kadyrova “Palianytsia” in the Chapel of ST. AGNES. Kadyrova works in a variety of disciplines, such as sculpture, photography, video, or performance. Her practice is always site specific and partially informed by the plastic and symbolic values of urban building materials like ceramics, glass, stone, or concrete.

Exhibition dates: Friday, 29. April to Sunday, 19. June 2022
