By means of textile applications on the canvas, Daniel Ferstl creates campy, cartoon-like archetypes of contemporary subject models, which also emerge from the paintings in the form of textile sculptures.

Without the physical support of the paintings, their protagonists loiter passively and flaccidly in the exhibition space.

Between optimized self-image, disappointing reality, and dreamy wishful thinking, the fictional individuals are confronted with the void at the center of any subjectivity.

Equally inspired by movie posters of the 70s and 80s, pop culture of the 90s and contemporary internet culture, Ferstl's art finds a position of agency in the emphatic affirmation of the surface – in the abandonment of the standardized-idealized self in reliance on one's own, however oblique and supposedly kitschy, taste.

Currently on view at Neue Galerie Gladbeck: "Water" by Artist Vivian Greven | Curated by Luisa Schlotterbeck

In her exhibition WATER, artist VIVIAN GREVEN reveals a series of large-scale paintings depicting different moments of birth. Greven paints birth explicitly, depicting it in itself, as an act of action. And despite the explicit pictorial subjects, it seems as if time stands still in the paintings: they hold something infinite.

Darja Shatalova at Bildraum 07 curated by Michal Stolarik

Our eyes, restlessly moving, almost dancing, follow the lines and diagonals shooting from the core in multiple directions. Every single line of colourful fabrics, hand-written expressive notes, tokens of systems, symbols or other visual aids imply a passionate, deep dive into unexplored topics. An information cluster instantly triggers our fantasy. What are these? The eager notes of an explorer, accounts from a diary, mental maps, or obsessive doodles with signs of automatism combined with an intentional loss of control?
