    Frankfurt 23/09/2022—03/12/2022

    In this exhibition, the artists from our gallery program Deniz Alt, Patrick Cierpka, Jan Davidoff, Marc Jung, Katrin Kampmann, Florian Lechner, Jirka Pfahl, Römer + Römer, Jukka Rusanen, Sandra Schlipkoeter, Lars Teichmann and Danil Yordanov each enter into an exciting dialogue with another artistic position that they themselves selected and invited. Together with their guests Sascha Boldt, Filip Zorzor, Knopp Ferro, Michal Schmidt, Daniel Mohr, Aaron Scheer, Terry Haggerty, Deborah Wargon, Marianna Uutinen, Anne Jungjohann, Oliver Gröne and Mimi Rumenova, they present themselves in new constellations.

    In addition to the variety of different works, materials and techniques, this presentation questions similarities and differences in the dialogue between the respective positions. The selection of works was made in lively exchange between the individual artist pairs, so that the references to the works prove to be an interplay curated by them. The twenty-four artists occupy the exhibition spaces on both floors of our gallery and open up lasting conversations about and through their artistic objects.

    With ›+1‹ we once again analyze the possibilities of contemporary art and focus on the personal perspectives of our gallery artists, who address both shared opinions and existing discourses in their choice of guest.

    In ›+1‹ we asked our represented artists Deniz Alt, Patrick Cierpka, Jan Davidoff, Marc Jung, Katrin Kampmann, Florian Lechner, Jirka Pfahl, Römer + Römer, Jukka Rusanen, Sandra Schlipkoeter, Lars Teichmann and Danil Yordanov to select and invite an artist of their choice and to start a dialogue through their works of art. Together with their guests Sascha Boldt, Filip Zorzor, Knopp Ferro, Michal Schmidt, Daniel Mohr, Aaron Scheer, Terry Haggerty, Deborah Wargon, Marianna Uutinen, Anne Jungjohann, Oliver Gröne and Mimi Rumenova, the artists will create new creative universes.

    Deniz Alt *1978 Aschaffenburg

    The artist's interest in the architecture of the past and that of the future is reflected in his works. Human individuals are repeatedly placed in direct juxtaposition with architectural elements in his imagery. Deniz Alt lives and works in Frankfurt am Main and studied at the renowned Städelschule.

    Patrick Cierpka *1967 Giengen

    In his paintings he contrasts the depiction of nature with human perception. In his sensitive works he plays with light and shadow, contrasting faceted color with brilliant white. Patrick Cierpka studied under Karl Horst Hödicke at the University of the Arts and lives and works in Berlin.

    Jan Davidoff *1976 North

    His pictures are unmistakable, figurative, powerful and here actually omnipresent: plants, often in raking light, conquer space. The divergence between foreground and background multiplies the levels of meaning and thus creates new variants of contemporary landscape painting. Jan Davidoff lives and works in Munich.

    Marc Jung *1985 Erfurt

    In Erfurt, the master student of Prof. Wolfram Adalbert Scheffler works on his impressive works. He repeatedly refers to contemporary pop culture with his picture subjects and the respective titles. Using different techniques, he brings the figurative moments to light in an energetic style.

    Katrin Kampmann *1979 Bonn

    With her colorful works, Katrin Kampmann takes us into a dreamlike world of flowing colors. She studied at the University of the Arts in Berlin and was a master student of Prof. KH Hödicke in 2006. She lives and works in Berlin.

    Florian Lechner *1981 Burghausen

    Virtually generated figures are captured and processed by the artist in material so that they circumvent a specific physical state and overcome the classic limitations of painting. Florian Lechner lives and works in Munich, where he studied sculpture under Hans Op de Beek and Hermann Pitz as a master student.

    Jirka Pfahl *1976 Wurzen

    Jirka Pfahl combines masterful craftsmanship and intelligent blockchain technology in his three-dimensional works made of paper and as NFTs. He lives and works in Leipzig. He studied media art at the Academy of Visual Arts in Leipzig, where he was a master student of Helmut Mark from 2006 to 2010.

    Römer+Römer ( Nina Römer *1978 Moscow, Torsten Römer *1968 Aachen)

    Unique, interpersonal encounters are made up of many small, overlapping dots of color. Nina and Torsten Römer have been working together as an artist couple since 1998. They completed their painting studies together under AR Penck at the Düsseldorf Art Academy.

    Jukka Rusanen *1980 Jyväskylä, Finland

    Through lovely colors and an energetic style, he combines vulnerability with expressiveness and power. Jukka Rusanen, born in Jyväskylä in 1980, studied fine arts at the Turku School of Fine Arts and the Finnish Academy of Fine Arts in Helsinki. He now lives and works in Lahti.

    Sandra Schlipkoeter *1979 Solingen

    "In my work, I focus on making an invisible phenomenon visible, which I make visible in a 100th of a second with a camera. I transfer this artistically over days and weeks of work onto canvas, in paper cutouts and in sculptures." Sandra Schlipkoeter studied under Professor Eberhard Havekost at the Düsseldorf Art Academy and was awarded the title of master student in 2011.

    Lars Teichmann *1980 Burgstädt

    Art history is quoted and new interpretations of the great classical themes are confidently implemented in an innovative formal language. Lars Teichmann studied fine art under Prof. Daniel Richter at the Berlin University of the Arts from 2002 to 2008 and was a master student under Prof. Valérie Favre in 2006.

    Danil Yordanov *1972 Balchik, Bulgaria

    Yordanov exploits the subtle nuances between black and white. Achromatic tonality is paired with the texture of the surface. The artist lives and works in Kaiserslautern and studied painting at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Veliko Turnovo, Bulgaria, where he received his master's degree in 1997.
