For the current exhibition, the ten artist Anatoliy Babiychuk, Christian Bazant, Luz Olivares Capelle, Alexander Hengl, Christine Katscher, Mathias Kloser, Sarah Pichlkostner, Janine Pölzl, Nora Rekade and Nazim Ünal Yilmaz dealt with the subjects of Law, Order and Society.

The theme “beyond” characterises what we at fwp stand for: discovering new options, establishing new perspectives and defying conventions.

fwp would like to support the artists in the sale of their works of art, and is glad to provide additional information.

Alexander Hengl

“Brats”
Group of Fimo figurines

Group of Fimo-figurines. The brats are emotional beings, giving free reign to their drives. They live in large groups, yet have no sense of order and get along without rules. Their extrovert and naive personalities are incompatible with our societal conventions.

Anatoliy Babiychuk

“Garagen von Chervonograd”
Series of photographs, 50 x 60 cm

This series of photograhps examines the emergence and development of individual freedom in the soviet system, and their transformation under postsoviet circumstances.

Christian Bazant-Hegemark

“Procession”
Oil on two canvases, 190 x 200 cm

The painting shows two children of different origin, in in everday western clothes. They are enraptured by their game, a move could easily lead to a scrape, but just as well to the desired goal. The perspective is solely defined by shadows, which also point out the unclear potential of the scene.
Actions in our life carry the potential to lead to unintended consequences; often more than intended or liked.
Life is full of choices whose consequences are inherently unknown, and yet the one constant in life is misjudgement.
The image also carries the craving for a society in which egoism is trimmed back, and a respectful, ethical company is kept – in which there is enough time and space for the individual.

Christine Katscher

“Stadt und Natur”
Pencil and crayon on paper, ca. 40 x 50 cm (4 works)

Human created systems of classifications, such as cityscapes and living quaters, are opposite yet related to the natural, growing forms and random constellations of nature.

Nora Rekade

“Something isn’t right”
Acryl paint on cardboard

In her installations and collages, Nora Rekade transfers day-to-day situations and architectural designs into the exhibition room, and then combines them with text. Or she lets her lettering – quotes from pop songs or graffitis, curtly describing an emotion – enter into a dialogue with the exhibition room.
With her seemingly simple designs, Nore Rekade allows for the ties between might and balance of power, attraction and repulsion in interpersonal relationships, but also the relationship of individual people with their environment, to become visible and noticable.

Luz Olivares Capelle

“Ella y Ella”
series of edited photographs, 10 x 15 cm

The family is a mirror for the reality (almost everything that happened in the world could be seen inside a family, in a smaller scale of course).
This is a small world where there is peace and harmony but also latent conflicts: sadness, fights, unhappiness, absences, dissociations, death, ghosts and fear.
These conflicts are also origins of the law system. A system which would help at a certain point to organise the human relationships.

Mathias Kloser

You’re a-peein’
Pencil, acrylic paint on paper, 120 x 170 cm

I attempt to demonstrate the difficulties of asserting importance, through ample image editing as through the title. That which can only be comprehended procedurally, arises simultaneously in a gaze. Thus, what you don’t see, is always part of an images history. A challenge to our classification systems.
Utopically, a world in which calm and composure dominate, is asserted. Surrounded by nature.

Nazim Ünal

“Soldiers“ “Alone in the Bath“
Oil on canvas, 50 x 40 cm

l come to grips with themes like family, sex, nature and politics, dealing, as a painter, with the basic and fundamental language of the medium. l aim to spotlight, lyrically and critically, everyday experience and the individual positioning of the artist.
Nevertheless, l try to believe in art with an ethical content, art which bears a relation to both social and political ideas as well as working with aesthetics as a fundamental precondition for communication with viewers, in respect of viewers.

Janine Pölzl

“Ästhetik definiert nichts Gewöhnliches”
Screenprint, 70 x 100 cm

Perception of breaks, a spatial intervention.
A symbiosis of architecture, light and shadow.
Beautiful, unadorned – discovered.

Sarah Pichlkostner

Untitled
Series of drawings, 29 x 21 cm

An attempt to presently depict the feeling that you’re not yourself, in relation to family origins, and its taught and forced, routined customs and actions, that further ingrain themselves throughout life. Building on that, the mindgame who do i want to be, and its dichotomy.
The drawing shows fragments of a human body, seemingly still incomplete, that have to deal with the self-defined and self-created space in a symbiotic way.
