About the Show

Kevin and Björn live the difference. ‚It takes two to tango‘ is a living environment of two partners in which the obvious difference between two creative processes turns positive. The coming together of the two artists is less an attempt to intensify agitated tensions between two individual positions but rather the inevitable consequence of two interconnected artistic existences.

Whatever the one answers, the other has said first.

The exhibition is the punch line of a joint creation. It shows the unique incessantly difference

with an eternal beginning of exchange.

*The exhibition is the punch line of a joint creation. It shows the unique difference which takes two.*

More than the pleasant thought alone, it is this attitude that carries the potentiality into the world. In Studio Huette the collected years find their current core. A space where the natural tension of the two unfolds into a collective gesture.

About the Artists

Björn Heyn, born 1992 in Berlin where he still works and lives. An Intuitive and moment based workwise, allows him to switch between medias in a very playful way. What is seen is reorganized and brought together again. New order through disorder from the usual.

„How do you like chaos? 

I like cows, I guess they have a very calm and relaxed life. 

Ohh not cows, cars! 

Well I don’t have a drivers license and I find them scary but practical. 

Hahahah ok now I got it CHAOS, in the beginning of everything I’m a fan of chaos. 

Thanks for that question!

 

 

Kevin Lüdicke is currently undergoing extensive research. His artistic work is the eternal doubt and the attempt to make the felt truth that everything could be different liveable. His works open up spaces of involved meditation, one looks through a dream-like perspective at oneself and one’s own environment – learned knowledge and felt truths are mercilessly opposed. The artistic works never suspend this existential tension, but manifest it as a stage on which we are simultaneously, ourselves and all others.

Kevin Lüdicke (1991) is an illustrator, painter and multimedia artist. He studied Visual Communication and Art and Media at the

University of Arts (UdK) Berlin.

He lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

About the Show

“THE DISTANCE BETWEEN” is a socio-politically charged group exhibition which focuses on the crucial issue of migration crisis worldwide and features a momentous lineup of international artists. Curated by Sasha Bogojev, the exhibition will include works by interdisciplinary Israeli artist Addam Yekutieli aka Know Hope, Italian spray paint virtuoso Eron, and Iran-born brothers, artists, and activists Icy and Sot.

Having a chance to present their work in a city recognized as a universal symbol for both division and reunion, the exhibition aims to present contemporary work that speaks of the ongoing crisis which is hitting shores and borders all around the planet. Deeply connected with the subject either through their personal life’s journeys or the ways it affects their homelands, all the artists strongly identify with this issue and have created works around it in the past. Icy and Sot built many installations and interventions commenting on the „travel ban“ or the idea of barriers and fences; Yekutieli has also worked around the same subject, producing a series of works that speak of displacement and human emotions that follow it; while Eron created a handful of striking pieces addressing the subject of deadly Mediterranean-crossings by refugees, migrants, and asylum seekers.

The Distance Between is designed as an installation that converts the gallery into a poetic setting which transcends the viewer from an art venue into an ambiguous space filled with uncertainty. Presenting the latest examples of their signature works, the drawings, canvases, sculptures, and mixed-media pieces are meant to provide an immersive and emotional experience fuelled by the artists‘ personal history. Bringing together different sides to the story and seeing the issue from different points of view, the exhibition celebrates humanity as a virtue while presenting an alternative overview of the delicate global issue, seen, experienced, and described by highly empathic individuals.

About the Show

Agostino Iacurci will present a new body of paintings and works on paper inspired by his daily walks across the streets of the residential neighborhoods of Berlin Charlottenburg and the observation of its shops and houses windows, where tropical plants are carefully lined up together with products, random objects and memorabilia from the owners. His images don’t refer to any place in particular, since he is more interested in the way objects are arranged and organized and how the plants stand behind the glass and shape up within the frame of the windows, chasing the little sun or the artificial lighting of the room. Alongside the paintings, he will present a new, tailor-made version of his iconic wooden plant that connects the two levels of the gallery space. Iacurci’s work is defined by clear and simple compositions and flat shapes. Colors like blue, white, black, and terracotta carry like a thread to the entire work. Despite the clarity of the elements and synthesis of forms, he generates dream-like images that evoke mystery and originate their own narrative.

 

About the Artist

Agostino Iacurci (Foggia, 1986) is an Italian-born, Berlin-based artist. His practice embraces a wide range of media including painting, mural, sculpture, drawing, and installation. Iacurci’s works are defined by clear compositions and bright colours, blurring the boundaries of figuration and abstraction. Primarily interested in everyday objects, his clean language conveys multiple layers of interpretation. Iacurci combines his artworks with scenographic spaces, to overcome the limits of painting and thus transform the perception of a given environment. His work has been shown in many exhibitions, festivals and projects in Europe, USA, Brazil, Russia, India, Indonesia, Mexico, Australia, Korea, Japan and Taiwan. Recent exhibitions include: Urban Art Biennale 2017, Völkinger Hütte, European Centre for Art and Industrial Culture, Germany; Cross the streets, Museo Macro Roma, 2017; FADA, House of Madness, The Watermill Center, New York, 2016; 16° Premio Cairo, Palazzo della Permanente, Milano, 2016; Codici sorgenti, Palazzo Platamone, Catania, 2015; From Street to Art, Italian Cultural Institute of New York, NY, 2014; Artmosphere, Urban Art Biennale, Artplay, Moscow.
