a site-specific work

In 2020 the first long-term nuclear waste repository in the world will be ready for use in Finland under the name Onkalo. Onkalo is a deep geological construction, built over a period of 25 years and made for storing highly radioactive nuclear waste in a safe manner until its decay in 100,000 years. The project raises questions not only about the conservation, reliability and durability of the site, but also of how life on earth could look like in a very distant future and how to protect the inhabitants from opening the site.

For Corridor I visitors will enter into speculations of how to transmit information about the site’s danger over thousands of years; of imagining who or what that information will be transmitted to; and what the potential discoverers will believe they have found when they come across Onkalo.

In addition to a multilayered discussion around the topic of Onkalo mixing artistic positions and non art information and material, Corridor I presents a site-specific commissioned work by artist Armin Keplinger.

Corridor I: Onkalo marks the launch of insitu’s Cycle IV, an ambitious three exhibition cycle dealing with the potential of time travel. Described as Corridors each exhibition takes visitors on an unfolding narrative that provides a special exhibition-viewing experience. Each show will begin with a significant moment related to scientific discoveries or notorious events in history.

pilote : pilote @ SEZ


Pilote proudly presents pilote:pilote!

Eröffnung: Donnerstag 20. Oktober 2016, 18 – 22 Uhr

„It is pilote´s first pop-up exhibition and its introduction into the Berlin art scene.“

In pilote:pilote around 80 works will occupy a 1.000 m² space, located in a building complex of the SEZ (a former recreational center in the GDR) in Berlin-Friedrichshain reviving it as an art space. The works shown depict a unique and impressive diversity of contemporary art forms, some of which include Fine Art Photography, Post Media Art, Painting, Drawing, Sculpture, Film and Video installation. At first glance, the strong appearing heterogeneity of the shown positions opens not only interesting discourses about the arts, but also finds its harmony within the exhibition’s interpretational concept. The media spectrum of the art works shown and the artist’s incongruent approaches of contents visualize the current occupation with the contexts about reality and truth, nature and science. They display latest perceptions and tendencies within contemporary art and let the audience feel them.

With Sarah Strassmann (*1980), Kathrin Ganser (*1977), Valentina Torrado (*1981) and Theresa Schubert (*1980) pilote introduces four graduates with PhD or Phd candidacy from the renowned Bauhaus-Universität Weimar, Germany. Strassmann and Ganser connect a strong interest in architectural spaces and surfaces through the medium of frontal photography to emphasize their characteristics. With their unique image and media aesthetic both, analyze different locations and objects by referring to the accuracy of documentary photography. As every other artist in pilote they work serially.

That noticeable conceptual approach is also clearly visible in the work of Theresa Schubert, but in an otherwise indentified way. Based on biological experiments the post-media artist explores the coincidences and the unpredictability of nature since 2011. The results and new developed concepts found in these processes are presented in her artistic practice, which combines audiovisual and hybrid media to conceptual and immersive installations or work on paper. She researches in the intersection of art and science.

Valentina Torrado’s art is an “extension of her body“. The Uruguay native lives and works in Germany since 1998. She never lost her love for her home country and especially the ocean. Ever since and displays her close relation to her origin. The artist’s confrontation with the element water as compensation for the absent ocean is omnipresent in Torrados major work. Her large-scale mostly monochrome or neon shade paintings or drawings demonstrate her desire in an impressive manner.

Cécile Dupaquier (*1970) and Attiilo Tono (*1976) present their artistic approaches through drawings and mainly sculptures. The French and Italian artist both developed specific techniques for her preferred materials to visualize artistic essences.
Cécile Dupaquier transforms usual materials from DIY stores like for example kappa-board and pursues the principle of the fold by cutting, folding and bending. The straight objects seem to reach a condition of physicality and end up as concrete installations of Minimal Art. Dupaquier’s artistic practice is located between architecture and sculpture but indicates her considerable affinity and passion for painting.

The latest works of visual artist Attilio Tono focus on traditional sculpture material like marble and plaster. Referring to the oblivious connection between object and surface he uses the natural characteristics of nature’s raw materials. In his installations, the artist brings them to a symbiosis with another product of nature: red wine. An ongoing visual transformation is a distinctive mark in Tono’s work. He also plays between the medium of drawing and sculpture, trying to find a balance, a limit, even a fusion of both.

Daniela Zeilinger (*1976) brings photography and painting in a complex and multimedia dialogue. Located in the artistic field of new media she constructs settings for her photographs by referring to abstract art, especially abstract painting. Zeilinger’s complex work processes include multiple techniques and media, such as analogue large-format camera, watercolor painting, collage and cut out. It is through the large-scale prints sensual effects that they assume an important role in her main work.

Selket Chlupka (*1981) and Betty Böhm (*1979) graduated at Staatliche Akademie der Bildenden Künste Stuttgart, Germany.
In her installation combining video and objects, Betty Böhm processes her fascination for spaces with a particular history. The human being between the poles of territorial characteristics and effects that ordinary and artistically situations may cause on a psychological aspect is the recurring topic in Böhm’s mostly autobiographical works. She searches for and creates distinctive settings through her multidisciplinary practice of video, installation, performance, and photography. She provides the spectator with space for his own perception and imagination. Selket Chlupka is a young artist who works mostly site-specific. Through collage, photography and large installations she displays subconscious mindsets and dreams, which are often deeply rooted in the artist’s involvement with her own self. The inclusion of Chlupka’s personal awareness of her direct environment and within her artistic work is consequently transformed into the process. It helps the artist to reach the sophisticated self-established goal to create visual realities

Eröffnung: Donnerstag 20. Oktober 2016, 19 Uhr

Artist talk: Freitag, 28. Oktober 2016, 19 Uhr
mit Kim Dotty Hachmann, Rebecca Wilton und Martin Wrede

Im Rahmen des Festivals „Monat der Fotografie-Off 2016 zeigt die erste Ausstellung fotografische Positionen von Kim Dotty Hachmann, Rebecca Wilton und Martin Wrede mit dem thematischen Schwerpunkt der Raum-Inszenierung. Durch das Re-Arrangement vorgefundener Orte mit Personen entsteht bei den Arbeiten eine mehrdeutige Sicht auf die Realität. Die zweckentfremdeten Inszenierungen provozieren einen Bruch mit trainierten Sehgewohnheiten. Sie erscheinen als eine dokumentarische Bühne, in denen die Personen, wie in einem absurden Theaterstück, Teil einer unbekannten Handlung sind.

Eröffnung: Donnnerstag 20. Oktober 2016, 19 – 23 Uhr

Die FOG Platform widmet sich der Fotografie an der Schnittstelle des Künstlerischen und des Dokumentarischen, die Betonung liegt auf der Vielfalt an Themen, Arbeitsweisen und Stilen. Die Ausstellung zeigt vier Positionen aus der diesjährigen Ausgabe 3 des FOG-Magazins.
Jakob Ganslmeier nutzt in seinem Projekt Lovely Planet: Poland die typischen Kategorien eines Reiseführers, um den Strukturwandel in der Mitte Europas ironisch zu kommentieren.
Zerwühlte, karge Landschaften bilden die Kulisse für die Serie Kowitsch von Robin Hinsch. Er fotografierte während der vergangenen Krisenjahre in der Ukraine und zeigt Schauplätze des Konflikts.
Bereits seit zehn Jahren fotografiert Adelaide Ivánova ihre in Brasilien lebende Großmutter Adelaide. Die beiden Frauen teilen mehr als nur den Vornamen – ihr inniges Verhältnis spiegelt sich in humorvoll-verspielten und zugleich ehrlichen Porträts.
Hannes Wiedemann widmet sich in Grinders den Selbstversuchen der US-amerikanischen DIY-Cyborgs, die mit einfachsten Mitteln an der Verschmelzung von Mensch und Maschine arbeiten.
