Exhibition at Kunstverein Springhornhof

This post comes to you from Cultura21

28 October–16 December, 2012 – Opening: Saturday, 27 October, 5pm; artist talk with Angela Bulloch 6pm

Kunstverein & Stiftung Springhornhof – Tiefe Straße 4, D-29643 Neuenkirchen (Germany)

With: Angela Bulloch, Josephine Meckseper, Shana Moulton, Simon Starling and winners of the Daniel Frese Prize 2012 Fabian Reimann and Niko Wolf

The exhibition The Simple Life opening on Saturday, will present artworks addressing the desire of lifestyles becoming more concerned with sustainability and naturalism as well as resulting dilemmas, from different perspectives.

The role which art plays in this discourse is taken up in different ways by the artists:

Angela Bulloch developed her new wall painting “Let`s Go Paleo!” specifically for this exhibition venue, depicting the supposedly healthy paleolithic diet as an extreme example of longing for naturalness.

Simon Starling, interested in visualizing permanent “re-cyclability” of materials, forms and ideas across space and time, is showing his installation “Carbon(Pedersen)”, which transforms two bikes into “survival kits”. The bike, a classic example of a healthy lifestyle and a natural means of mobility, is becoming more and more fashionable as a lifestyle vehicle.

The realized drafts of the winners of Lüneburg’s Daniel Frese Prize 2012, this year dedicated to the theme “Art and Sustainability/Non-Sustainability”, are also presented at the exhibition. Niko Wolfwith his installation “Museum of Mounds or: The Economy of Oblivion” and Fabian Reimann‘s spatial essay “The Memory of the Stars”.
