Star Spangled
June 4 – July 16

art tausch is pleased to present “Star Spangled” with a solo presentation of Nina Lamiel Bruchhaus.

Bruchhaus’s bold, colorful, and untethered works invite close, deliberate examination.

Her work deals with the question of overarching themes of sustainability, spirituality and feminism in contemporary art. The artists rejects the hierarchy of body, mind or soul and pursues a holistic approach, in which physicality and sensuality play a major role. Femininity is not seen as a weakness but as a strength. Vulnerability, tenderness, poetry as possibilities for renewal and progress towards a more just, sustainable world for all living beings. The utopian potential of Nina Lamiel Bruchhaus’s work lies in its turn to the terrestrial. According to Bruno Latour, a new grounding can bring humans back to their natural origins. Perhaps the only way to save survival on our planet in the long run.

These game-changing works from any recognizable references to the physical world envelope you in forms of dusty orange to pale lavenders, and contribute to their levitating power. Her marvelously varied means of applying color, entangled with riveting compositions arrives at a complex visual unity. The feeling of security in nature and nature as a symbol of liveliness is expressed, focusing on similarities and differences, continuities and shifts.

The images radiate joie de vivre, lightness and optimism.

VOLTA New York
May 18 – May 22

art tausch is pleased to present for the first time at VOLTA New York: Viktoria Strecker, Cécile Lempert and Nina Lamiel Bruchhaus

Three exceptional women artists creating urgent, moving work, ranging from figurative paintings, to spiritual abstractions, intricate drawings and sculptures.

Iconic looped- and tied sculptures arise in fractal iterations and extend to multiple layers of Viktoria Strecker’s extraordinary drawings. This larger context illuminates her pursuit of form as a means to reshape how we see the world, reminding us of something within ourselves: A long-held desire to place art and life in a permanently dynamic conversation.

Cécile Lempert’s portraits open up a painterly and conceptual dialogue between the dual role of subject and artist. The artist examines its presence and its absence as well as offering an extended consideration off the medium’s ability to capture qualities of form, light and atmosphere. Painted in distemper on canvas, each work seems to contain a narrative world of its own.

Morendo Spiritoso | Viktoria Strecker
May 7 – June 2

art tausch is pleased to present “Morendo Spiritoso” with a solo presentation of Viktoria Strecker.

“You can draw with everything. Your hands, a scalpel, your mind, with a paths in your life, even with time.”

Iconic looped- and tied sculptures arise in fractal iterations and extend to multiple layers of Viktoria Strecker’s extraordinary drawings. This larger context illuminates her pursuit of form as a means to reshape how we see the world, reminding us of something within ourselves: A long-held desire to place art and life in a permanently dynamic conversation.

“A drawing is also a flirt, seducing rhythm and paste: fluently static, sincerely playful- time is getting bent while you are following collateral patterns and chords dissolving in arpeggios full of striking staccatos bound in grand movement’s densities. Morendo spiritoso. Passion. Devotion. The love of your life.” Viktoria Strecker

Viktoria Strecker’s work is disruptive and deeply moving.

The Augurs’ Silence
March 30 – May 3rd

art tausch is pleased to present “ The Augurs’ Silence ” with a three-person presentation of Cécile Lempert, Eun Young Lee and Jana Jacob.

The exhibition The Augurs’ Silence is featuring 4 paintings of dreamy, melancholic figures carried out in Cécile Lempert’s poignant and wondrous style. Painted in distemper on canvas, each work seems to contain a narrative world of its own. Her attempt to capture the moment brings us solace: The consoling beauty and flow of time that connects us all.

Eun Young Lee’s works present an exploration of the continuities of nature and a belief in the enduring vitality of beauty and the perpetuation of methods of timekeeping through oral and visual traditions. Governing belief systems of our lives are caught up simultaneously as a visualization of the past and as a perception of the present from an imagined future: a physical approximation of imaginary utopia.

Jana Jacob’s meticulously rendered portraits explore insight and integrity in the genre of figurative art. Demonstrating an acute sensitivity to the psychological and emotional force of her subjects, her deceptively-precise brushstrokes seduce and disarm. Her iconic portraits adhere to their source – a photograph – emphasizing physical characteristics that define how we outwardly portray ourselves to the world. It is the spatio-temporal complexities of her paint that keep us engaged.

Dance Between the Earth and Sky

February 10 – until March 22

art tausch is pleased to present “Dance Between the Earth and Sky” with a three-person presentation of Christelle Kahla, Anija Seedler and Nora Awad.

Christelle Kahla’s vibrant paintings combine motifs of cultural and geographical fluidity and juxtapose the strokes of brushes with marks that evoke computer graphics. As a digital native, Kahla interrogates the paradoxes of our hyper-connected world and makes apparent the sporadic ways in which we consume information.

The “illustrated stories of moments” of Leipzig – based artist Anija Seedler appear as visual translations of balanced fragments of autonomous building blocks of an independent whole. With red ink she draws figures and gestures from everyday worlds making sure that the narrative in the image does not cause the movement to be lost. Her figures are and move “ in between”: between joy and sadness, inside and outside, male and female, contact and distance; their intention is not clearly visible. Finding the inherent truth in lived experience — cruelty and love, violence and beauty – is what moves the artist.

Nora Awad’s work explores the dynamics of how dreams are constituted and the way in which they are subject to a continual process of entering a dialogue between herself and others. “Dreams are like a second life that you are gifted. They are a parallel world, where everything can be different and yet the same, a type of inverted answer to our lived experiences.” Nora Awad’s intensely visual language is rooted in her observations of dreams made visual – the fleeting impulses of the past rendered concrete in art.

Anemochory

Nataliya Borushchak
Thursday, January 6 until February 8

art tausch is pleased to present “Anemochory” with a presentation of Nataliya Borushchak.

Unfathomable objects made of patterned fabrics, lace and other materials form the elements from which Nataliya Borushchak creates her seemingly floating drawings. Connected, beautiful surfaces that have a meditative effect on the viewer only emerge on the paper as surreal objects, between familiarity and alienation.

Mutable
Dorothee Liebscher and Dora Celentano
Opening Reception
Thursday, December 30 | 4:30pm – 6:30pm
On view until November 27 by appointment only

art tausch is pleased to present “ Mutable ” with a two-person presentation of Dorothee Liebscher and Dora Celentano.

In Dorothee Liebscher’s abandoned spaces, the narrative unfolds over hauntingly evocative images representing the temporal aspect: What was, What is, What will be? In these delicate, emotionally charged landscapes and interior paintings it is decay that takes over, illustrating the fragility and vulnerability of society.

Curious pictorial realms lie at the heart of this special presentation, with a particular focus on the roles and relationships between external and internal perceptions. Dora Celentano’s series is a characteristically spirited retelling of the initially lovely interior, which raises the question of security, longing and belonging.
