"I think the fragment is the form that best reflects the constantly changing reality in which we live, and which we are. The fragment is not so much a seed as a straggly atom that can only be defined when situated relative to other atoms: it is nothing less than a relation."

From the Forest Floor
January 23, 2022 - March 26, 2022
The artists translate imagery of the forest, stone, moss, vegetation, patterns and clouds, into drawings and objects which parallel other forms of landscapes. The landscape becomes a terrain of layers, fragments, aerial views and ground views, planes, perspectives and textures.
Through the differing vantage points from which their works are executed, both Katja Davar and Susanne S. D. Themlitz examine the relationship between landscape, perspective and pictorial representation.

What words to name
November 05, 2021 - January 08, 2022
Carolina Serrano (PT, 1994) lives and works between Cologne and Lisbon.
Serrano's work and research revolves around the temporal dimension of sculpture.
The artist's sculptural thinking collapses, recurrently, with the notions of light and shadow; with the ideas of destruction and appearance; and with the duality between interior and exterior and between full and empty space.
René Tavares, Coiffeur de rêve, mixed media on canvas, 150 x 140 cm, 2021
Global Narratives of Southern Peoples
September 03 - October 30, 2021
René Tavares (ST, 1983) approaches Creole identity, the result of deep research into the dynamics of migration, the central theme of his work, through a need to search for an African identity in a colonized time by the Portuguese. At the same time as an affirmation of the mestizo reality itself, the artist is interested in deepening the influence of the boundaries between histories, languages and techniques and sharing this exploratory journey.
