Editors Letter by Suzanne Langer
For their part of the ever-growing exhibition "Domino", Josef Zekoff and Sarah Bogner have decided to look for the crux of the matter in their work and decided to include pictures from all possible worlds.
There are raw scraps of canvas and delicate drawings.
There is Cezanne and Picabia, hand in hand.
Nothing else matters.
That says a lot, but even a single horse can look back benevolently.
Is it really just about whether to smoke or not, or non smoke or not?
But it's never about painting or not. And it's never about publishing or not: A striking part of this contribution by Sarah Bogner and Josef Zekoff is not necessarily to be experienced on the wall, but literally on the parquet:
In the publication accompanying the exhibition you can not only see the mycelium-like ground with its diagonals and ornaments becoming the supporting surface, but also the connection between "City" and "Paysage", "Cezanne" and "Picabia".
It shows the domino-like impetus and recoil between the artists and their works and the subsequent relief caused by falling over on the floor.
The whole exhibition architecture of this printed matter keeps the viewer in suspense - the hard edges of the oak and the surprisingly soft carpet as a centerfold pull us into a performance between the pages:
Each shape is unique, like from the blockchain, each group is lovingly laid like an egg from a golden goose.
The publication can be picked up for free on site as a giveaway during the exhibition (instead of regular 20 bucks).
Since Sarah Bogner and Josef Zekoff neither live behind the mountains in their artistic development, nor does any of them just let the Zeitgeist pass by without saying „Hello“ in a polite manner, there will be a digital moving image mined from the analog centerfold that will soon be available for sale!
With this in mind: See you there! Sincerely yours,
