Anouk Lamm Anouk is Painter, is Poet and everything in between. Or as they say: «I am nothing, no one», which could be a reference to their embedding in Zen Buddism. 

Anouk identifies as non binary.

Reduction as condensation was their early goal that lead them to the development of a deeply personal approach to abstraction. Based on the exploration of their identity and body in relation to society.

Artworks – Anouk Lamm Anouk

Anouk Lamm Anouk official Website

Early experiences and growing into a wrongly gendered body were transformed in a wide body of work.

Confronting and transforming pain into beauty and power. By doing so, they challenge the viewers by examining sex, eroticism and female liberation. 

Certain motifs, beings, rhythms are repeating themselves or are found fragmentarily in different series of works. Just like a subtle reference to the big picture.

Everyday life, dreams, work, the extravaganza — Anouk's oeuvre is about uniting all aspects of being.

Visibility is the key and an essential part of their self and creating. For being true to yourself — visible queerness is a big concern of Anouk. Being out and proud is a fundamental part of their practice.

Visibility is activism in a world that is still shaped by discrimination of all kinds.

That is why a space of peace and contemplation is so central in Anouk’s work. Make the medium visible; linen is the oh so present painting ground and also the first hue of most of their paintings.

A compact pallete of colours create a mediative non-space — especially in their non-figurative abstract series «post/pre». 


At Spark Art Fair Vienna Klodin Erb will present works from her latest series titled Flowers for Sale, flower paintings that only reveal themselves to the public when viewed closely and allude to the selling off of nature.

Lullin + Ferrari
Lullin + Ferrari, founded 2008 by Corrado Ferrari and Etienne Lullin, is a gallery dedicated to contemporary art with a strong network of artists, collectors, museum people and other gallerists.

Klodin Erb is represented by Lullin + Ferrari Gallery

The pictures were all created on plasticized tablecloths, whose motifs Klodin Erb artfully continued, altered, or added new elements to.

Klodin Erb is one of the most famous Swiss painters. In her expressive, fantastic pictorial worlds, she explores the boundaries of painting and simultaneously questions definitions of gender and identity.

In an effort to combine topicality and timelessness in her paintings, the artist uses various techniques to "sample" borrowings from art history with motifs from the contemporary world.

Klodin Erb lives and works in Zurich and is a lecturer at the Department of Design & Art at the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts.

Simone Fattal was born in Damascus, Syria, and raised in Lebanon, where she studied philosophy at the École des Lettres in Beirut.

She then moved to Paris, where she continued her philosophical pursuits at the Sorbonne.

In 1969 she returned to Beirut and began working as a visual artist, exhibiting her paintings locally until the start of the Lebanese Civil War.

She fled Lebanon in 1980 and settled in California, where she founded the Post-Apollo Press, a publishing house dedicated to innovative and experimental literary work.

About Simone Fattal

Simone Fattal Website

In 1988 she enrolled in a course at the Art Institute of San Francisco, which prompted a return to her artistic practice and a newfound dedication to sculpture and ceramics.

Fattal currently lives in Paris, and has had recent solo exhibitions at the Whitechapel Gallery (2021), ICA Milano (2021), Bergen Kunsthalle (2020), and MoMA PS1 (2019).

Fattal’s work—watercolours and collages as well as sculptures made from clay and bronze—exists between figuration and abstraction.

She draws on sources ranging from war and conflict, to landscape painting, ancient religions and mythologies, Sufi poetry and the fragility of the human form.

Hubert Winter Gallery Vienna

She explores the impact of displacement and migration as well as the politics of archaeology and excavation.

Using frequently recurring motifs and forms, and just enough detail to make her characters discernable, her works construct worlds that feel as though they have emerged—temporarily—from history and memory.

GALLI was born in 1944 in Heusweiler, Germany – The artist lives and works in Berlin, Germany.

Establishing herself amidst the tumultuous, hedonistic spirit of the West Berlin art scene in the late 1970s and early 1980s, Galli rejected the austere visual language of conceptual art and embraced narrative forms and subjective experience.

Fragmented objects, human limbs, and amorphous blobs are playfully melded together in her drawings and paintings. 

Galli determinedly blazed her own path within a generation dominated by the (male) painters of the New Fauves.

Fundamental to her work are the physical and psychological torment of her figures and her agile intellectual play with literature and language. 

Galli became a prominent figure of her generation in Germany, presenting solo exhibitions in countless galleries as well as Forum Kunst Rottweil, the Bodensee Museum in Friedrichshafen, and the Salzburger Kunstverein.

In 2020 her works were on view at the KW in the context of the 11th Berlin Biennale, and in 2022 she had her first solo show with brunand brunand gallery, Berlin.

Who we are is often determined by our social environment and (family) history. How we build our self-esteem, often determines how we look to the outside world and how we react to the other.

In her work, Lansink explores these relationships, trying to bridge the personal and universal.


Margaret Lansink Website

The way she photographs is purely intuitive; her images present an open and honest reflection of her own inner emotions at a certain time, space and interaction.

Shot as self-portraits in the broadest sense of the word.

With this intuitive way of photography she invites the spectator to embark on a journey through his-her own intricate web of memories, emotions, expectations, fears and desires.

Margaret Lansink uses various analogue camera's to capture the different atmospheres of her inner emotions.

IBASHO means ‘a place where you can be yourself’ in Japanese. IBASHO is a gallery in Antwerp that opened her doors in March 2015, showing fine art Japanese photography ranging from works by well-known Japanese photographers to younger contemporary Japanese artists as well as works from Western photographers who were…

Giving the images the freedom to act as an overflow from reality to dream and vice versa. More and more she experiments with her images, with paint, goldleaf, charcoal as well as with liquid light in the darkroom.

The powdery surfaces of Evelyn Plaschg’s works on paper oscillate between matte and brilliant, depending on light conditions, turning the works themselves into fragile ‘bodies’ that rub off when touched – through display, storage, and presentation; an incipient dissolution of the work.

Starting from photographs, Plaschg translates the captured bodies into drawings, which are then in turn drawn up with pigments.

Her works show the permeability of a supposedly defined subject and its environment, that allows the vulnerability of its outward-facing surface to shine through. 


Evelyn Plaschg Website

Evelyn Plaschg (b. 1988 in Gnas, Austria) is an artist based in Vienna. Plaschg studied at the Academy of Fine Arts in Vienna and at ENSBA Paris.

She received the Marianne Defet Stipend for painting in 2020/2021.

Extracted and abstracted, these elements form a sign which at a symbolic level incorporates an inherent narrative, directing us towards the story of an object while introducing dynamics and humour which camouflage criticism under a tarp of advertising approaches, entertainment or play.'

Sprache, Architektur und Skulptur sind Grundlagen ihrer Zeichensysteme, auch in ihren zweidimensionalen Arbeiten. “Andere Materialen, die ich verwende, sind klassische Baumaterialen der Architektur wie Zement oder Styropor. Der „Cartoon Charakter“ ergibt sich aus den unterschiedlichen Thematiken und Gegensätzen, die ich in meine Arbeit einfließen lasse. Dazu gehören die Jugend- und Undergroundkultur, sowie die Musikkultur und die Gegensätze zwischen Hoch- und Popkultur.” (Zit. Maruša SAGADIN) --- Language, architecture and sculpture are the basis of her sign systems, even in her two-dimensional works. “Other materials I use are classic architectural building materials such as cement or polystyrene. The “cartoon character” results from the different themes and contrasts that I incorporate into my work. These include youth and underground culture, as well as music culture and the contrasts between high and pop culture.” (Quot. Maruša SAGADIN)
