Munich Artists created an art book called Inspired 2016.
For the first book, artists created an art piece inspired by this artwork by Brigitte Pruchnow.
A group of around 26 Munich Artists created art pieces based on Brigitte’s artwork.
The following is the tentative list of artists involved (A final list will be shared on the project page when all artwork has been submitted):
The book will be published as an A4 Landscape. If you are interested in a copy of the book, please let me know. We are only printing a limited number. You can email me firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested. The cost per book will be 50 Euro. We will only print one run per Inspired book.
If you are interested in purchasing an original piece of artwork from the book, please contact the artists directly.
The installation focuses on the connection and disconnection of asylum seekers representing the asylum seekers symbolically through video, augmented reality and sculptural art forms.
There will be six videos placed in an augmented reality images.Each video will represent a country of an asylum seeker.Each sculptural pieces will represent ideas associated with asylum seeking as interpreted by the above artists.We are letting the visual artists pursue their ideas on 2 m lighted columns and we will share their artists statements online and in a brochure so that you can understand each sculptural piece and how it relates to the overall theme of the installation.
I’ve asked the artists to keep the artwork in column form but they are welcome to manipulate the light element, the height (must be a minimum of 2m), and the materials used for the column.
Only a small percentage of the population knows how to use augmented reality.We are using this technology in the exhibition to show the struggles asylum seekers face learning new skills needed to integrate into German society.Augmented reality also points to the need for specific tools to connect the asylum seekers to German society.
A WordPress site will house the images of the sculptures and the videos so visitors can see the different elements of the installation together online.
The exhibition will be organised as a circle of columns that represent trees.The outer five trees will represent German society towering and rooted.The middle column will be shorter and have no roots. It will be images/words whitewashed to represent a new start and will contain a Zoetrope showing a simple scene. The zoetrope will need to be hand spun to work.You must pass through the other sculptures to reach it.
This zoetrope sculpture represent the asylum seeker who is sheltered by Germany but has notroots and no German story yet to tell/show.All is within the Asylum seeker and one must look closely to see what is inside. The zoetrope is a simple scene representing one of the needs requested by valid asylum seekers in Germany.
We will continue posting information about the installation each week. Next week, I will share some images of the different elements of the installation.
This morning, I wondered what ransom I would need to pay to get the sun back from the fog. As I walked over the Isar, I saw this moody image of Munich and decided that the sun could stay away for a bit longer.
Art Challenge News: Munich artists are doing a collage challenge. There were some images here but when I moved the blog they disappeared. Maybe, someday, I will find them again. If you want to look at our challenge work, please visit the challenge page.
We will be showing several of the collages on Friday at the Friday gallery in combination with Emmy Horstkamp’s T-project. If you don’t know Emmy, come and visit the gallery on Friday and say hello.
Munich Artists News:
Munich Artist Brigitte Pruchnow is having a busy autumn. Last weekend she attended the Rotterdam art fair and she has been accepted into a gallery in Japan (The gallery will be taking her artwork to a Tokyo art fair in the spring). If you want to see Brigitte’s work, her art is scattered around Bavaria in group exhibitions like this one and she will be having a solo exhibition at the Friday gallery in 2015.
Gabriele Rothweiler will be one of the 70 artists displaying work during the evening. Her paintings will be on display at Asam-fashion in the Schlossergasse 376. Gabriele will also have her artwork on display at her gallery during the open studios in Neuhausen if you don’t want to leave Munich this weekend or have made other plans for this Saturday.
Emmy Horstkamp will be showing the Title pages from her T-project at the Friday gallery starting on September 19th. The series is based on the idea that women like to see their romantic partners as projects to be fixed up or manipulated. The title pages are the initial architectural idea of what each man should be. The series continues with a blueprint for each man and then the final man created in a mixed media format which may be nothing like the ideal (Just like the difference between what the architect designs and what the builders actually create. The art pieces are made using photography, digital printing and acrylic paint on art paper and canvas.
ARTMUC starts today. If you are interested in going, Here are a few of the Munich artists who are going to be at the event and the Floorplan so you can find them. (floor plan is a pdf – Standplan ARTMUC)
More artists will be added in a post tomorrow after we visit the show. If you have a favourite artists showing their artwork at ARTMUC, please let us know and we will go visit their booth and take some photographs of their current work.
Good Luck Munich Artists! Have a great time over the next couple of days and we wish you much success!
The first Munich artists Installation was a success and it was great to see Munich artists collaborating for the pure joy of being creative.
Several of the artists who participated in the Munich Artists Installation brought more than one piece of art. Ines Seidel, who creates mixed media pieces, brought pages where she had cut out circles, boxes she’d made from books and a few mono prints.
Hazel Ang, who enjoys creating with oil on paper, brought three pieces of art which were political in nature. Hazel is a news junkie but she isn’t a political artist. The three canvases expressed her feelings but were tucked away in her closet where they took up valuable space.
For Hazel, taking her art pieces and using them to create a new art piece on Friday was Cathartic-A final release of the feelings trapped within the original art pieces. Although many of the artists found it exciting, energising and even cathartic to deconstruct, some artists were experiencing deconstruction for the first time and finding changing their perspective about their work challenging.
As we ripped and cut and glued canvas from various art pieces, one artist walked over with her canvas where she had created a small hole. She was inspired to make the hole while watching us but when we talked with her about taking the canvas off the frame her eyes grew big. She wasn’t ready to deconstruct her art piece and we didn’t push her. This artist had taken the first step in releasing the reverence placed on a finished piece of art by altering the work she has laboured so hard to create. By the end of the evening she had made several more holes and her work was added to the window installation which is on display in Neuhausen for the next 8 weeks.
Munich is getting ready for the holiday season. Christmas markets are under construction and the Christmas tree corrals are up. Are you getting into the holiday mood? If not, maybe this week’s Friday gallery will help.
