"For everyone, "the sun rises in the east", but it moves through the most diverse realities."
Galerie 3AP is pleased to announce the first duo show of the year, summarizing past activities as well as sharing glimpses of upcoming projects and visions. Exploring partial aspects of contemporary art, “Partikel” points out that the concept of art, and thus art itself, eludes an unambiguous interpretation. It remains a temporary setting and observation. For everyone,’the sun rises in the east‘, but it moves through the most diverse realities. On display are works by Jacqueline Hen and Philipp Naujoks, which also represent a fragmentary excerpt from “The Line is never quite obedient”.
Jaqueline Hen’s installation “One’s sunset is another one’s sunrise” thematizes the equality of cultures in the form of a large sun, at the same time manifesting certain power relations and ideas of reality. In her light art objects and large-scale immersive installations, she explores the unconscious perception of one’s own movement, tension, posture, and position in space (proprioception) as well as experiences of contingency (Luhmann, Parsons) in the intertwining of physical and virtual living spaces.
What does it mean to become aware of different realities and perspectives and to transfer these to exhibition concepts? ‚Colour‘ and ‚line‘ are explored in Philipp Naujoks‘ work in a technically sophisticated and unusual way, as he shoots the canvas with a laser to create his images using photochemical processes. It shakes up the viewer’s usual viewing habits while depicting perhaps the most fundamental subject of painting: ‚colore‘ and ‚disegno‘. Hidden in the title is a reference to the constellation “Cetus” – a very extended but less conspicuous one, whose interpretation dates back to the ancient world.
