|We show at ART COLOGNE:|
||ART COLOGNE - we are pleased to announce the participation of new works by the following artists at our booth:|
Ian Burns's sculptural machines are made up of rudimentary materials of housing construction. They are highly visual and engaging. The very ways in which they function invoke curiosity, the materials and methods of construction openly explain the functioning of the device, and the humor at play all serve to engage the viewer in a unique and personal experience.
Like an author of comics, Andreas Leikauf seems to have access to and use of an inventory of images, which is surely traced back to the anonymous pictorial style. The idea of trash is certainly no problem for the artist. Trash replicates all major genres of advanced civilization and parodies it, too. The potency of popular culture - which of course also existed before pop art - lies in its directness and supposed inarticulacy. His image-word combinations seem to be part of a collective subconscious.
Anastasia Khoroshilova creates fine and sensitive photo-portraits of people that live outside of their world, their country and who temporarily have changed their home for a united living. She is especially interested in people that have grown up in between two different cultures - just like the artist herself, who grew up both in Russia and in Germany.
