"Alone we can do so little; Together we can do so much"
5 Galleries, 5 Artists, 5 Artworks
Julia Campbell Carter presents:
Gallerie Daniel Marzona
Pilar Corrias Gallery
Gallerie Geuer & Geuer
This collaboration includes five male artists between 40 and 55 years. Although they are all from the same generation and have experienced similar political situations, they are very different in the way they express how they feel and the impact it has on their artworks.
Due to the ongoing situation with COVID-19, supporting each other and our artists has never been more important. So, together we have decided to feature the following artists and their work.
Olaf Holzapfel is a German postwar and contemporary painter who was born in 1969. His work was featured in numerous exhibitions at key galleries and museums including the Benaki Museum of Greek Culture and the Galerie Gebrüder Lehmann. He focuses on the extent to which the material and the informal worlds are connected.
Ken Okiishi was born in the US in 1978. He lives and works in New York and Berlin. He works in disparate media system. His works hover over and within relationships between matter and memory, perception, action, image -networks and language-systems, technology and emotion. Working through, and with multiple mediums in fused simultaneity, he incites moments when the 'real world' loses its coherence and where languages and images fall apart.
Stephan Kaluza studied painting and philosophy at Heinrich-Heine University in Dusseldorf. He has exhibited as widely as Korea, the Netherlands, Spain, Israel, Lithuania and Germany. Kaluza won the prize of the Carl and Ruth Lauterbach-Stiftung Foundation, Dusseldorf in 2001 and the George-Konell-Preis of Wiesbaden in 2005. His painterly work generally deals with depictions of nature, be it blurred black-and-white representations, hyper-realistic oil on canvas works or abstract compositions of forests, water surfaces and undergrowth.
Gregor Hildebrandt is a conceptual, Berlin-based artist, who was born in 1974. He transforms the near obsolete relics of recording technology - like VHS, cassettes and vinyl records- into sculptures, paintings, photographs and installations. To make his signature paintings, Hildebrandt applies tapes directly to the canvas, making impressions with them before finally adhering the cassettes themselves.
Christian Awe is a contemporary artist, based in Berlin. He was born in 1978. He studied at the University of the Arts under Professor Georg Baselitz and was a master student of Daniel Richter. In addition to his artistic activities and national and international exhibitions, he is involved in numerous social and cultural projects in Germany, the Middle East and Africa.
