Claudia Zweifel
Be it a painting, drawing, or object – whether digital or analogue – everything Claudia Zweifel displays, paints, draws, or sculpts is reality and illusion at the same time. Her works encompass visual possibilities and perceptive stimuli in the surface and in space and probe colour as the comprehensive bearer of expression, as a constitutive as well as virtual element, whose effect ranges from sublime colour-space to individually placed structures to constructive flow and beyond all of these.
Image data are woven in a dye-sublimation printing process with a fine synthetic support material and permanently materialised. Everything flows in a picture, whether data, colours, swathes of colour, or graphic structures. Nothing is left to chance. Everything is there, in thoughts, as a concept, before the transfer procedure begins. Yet, how can a trace of colour, the flow of oil paint, or of a watery aquarelle be stopped? Do we see in the «bitmaps» composite sketches of the colour-spaces so well known from Mark Rothko? Can one reproduce the effect of those icons of painting and «cartographically» position the quasi digitally pixelated colour-space contained in them? (Text: Birgit Möckel / translated by David Sánchez)

Claudia Zweifel, born in 1981 in Zurich, Switzerland. The artist studied Fine Arts at the Lucerne University of Art and Design (BA) and at the University of Arts Berlin (Meisterschülerin). She lives and works in Berlin. She showed her work a.o. at:
KW Institute for Contemporary Art (Berlin); Kunstmuseum Luzern (Switzerland); Kunstverein Schwäbisch Hall; Kunsthalle CCA Andratx (Mallorca); Sammlung Falckenberg / Deichtorhallen (Hamburg); Kunstsaele Berlin; Galerie Krobath, Vienna; Arthur Boskamp-Stiftung / M.1, Hohenlockstedt; Künstlerhäuser Worpswede; Kreuzberg Pavillon and Galerie Gilla Lörcher (Berlin).

A monographic catalog has been published in 2020 at Kerber Publishing House. You may purchase the catalogue at our booth.

Ute Schendel
The series of vintage print portraits from the 70s and 80s show personalities from the world of theatre, film and literature with
whom the photographer was / is in close contact. Back then, Schendel experimented with a sulfur toning technique on Agfa P90 paper. This painterly component gave the „realistic“ portraits an expressive power. After a series of attempts, she left it at that and turned to documentary photography in the future. The vintage portraits remained in the photographer´s studio archive and were rediscovered by her in 2019.
Large-format sulfur tonings (each 45 x 60 cm) by: Fernando Arabal, Mauricio Kagel, Walter Stöhrer, Samuel Beckett, George Tabori and others are on display. These pictures are complemented by black and whit portraits (silver gelatine prints, also mostly vintage) by Gisèle Freund, Lee Strasberg, Heiner Müller, Herbert Achternbusch, Einar Schleef, Peter Kurzeck, Miriam Cahn, R.A. Penck, Kasper König, Joanna Jones and others.
The black and white portrais are shown in the newspaper at the booth. The original vintage photographs and fine art prints are presented on request.

The photographer Ute Schendel born in Berlin in 1948, lives and works in Basel. She studied Photography in Berlin and Hamburg. For forty years, Ute Schendel has preferred to use black and white photography. She started as a theatre and portrait photographer in the 1970s at the Schiller Theatre in Berlin, at Städtische Bühnen Essen, at Theater am Turm in Frankfurt and accompanied productions by theatre directors such as Einar Schleef, Heiner Müller, George Tabori, Samuel Beckett, Patrice Chéreau and Jan Fabre. From 2000 to 2003 Ute Schendel was visiting professor in the field of visual communications at Fachhochschule Mainz / University of Applied Sciences. Her extensive image archive contains portraits of actors, directors, photographers, painters, musicians, writers and other cultural workers. Ute Schendel has also created a large oeuvre in the field of landscape photography over the past decades.
Her photographic work has been shown in numerous exhibitions and galleries, a.o. at: State Museum, Mainz; the German National Library, Frankfurt a.M.; Art Museum Olten, Olten (Switzerland); Kunstverein Hattingen; Kunstverein Schallstadt; Kunstverein Schloßplatz 1, Hoechst; Nietzsche Haus, Sils Maria (Switzerland); Forum Dominican Monastery, Frankfurt a.M.; Galerie Altes Schloß, Wehr; Galerie Lévy Gorvy Rumbler, Zurich (Switzerland); Galerie Gilla Loercher, Berlin.

John Cornu
John Cornu works with an aesthetic inherited from minimalism and modernism (monochromy, seriality, modularity), while maintaining a strong relation to context (historical, architectural, societal) and a form of contemporary romanticism (a penchant for degradation, blindness, violence, and destruction). With an interest for modern ruins, coercive systems, logics of power, and the passage of time, the artist imbues his productions with an atmosphere at once poetic and without compromise. Whether sculptural, pictorial, or installation-based, they blend paradoxical forces, setting up a multiplicity of meanings and readings.

Born in 1976 in Seclin (France), John Cornu lives and works in Rennes and Paris. His work has been shown in numerous solo and group shows at: Palais de Tokyo and Maison rouge (Paris, FR), Mains d’œuvres (Saint-Ouen, FR), CNEAI (Chatou, Paris, FR), Galerie Edouard-Manet (Gennevilliers, FR), 40mcube/Hub Hug (Rennes, FR), Parvis Centre d’art contemporain (Ibos, FR), Bel ordinaire (Pau, FR), CACN-Centre d’art contemporain (Nîmes, FR), Les Trinitaires (Metz, FR), BF15 (Lyon, FR), EAC - Espace de l’Art Concret (Mouans-Sartoux, FR), BBB centre d’art et Abattoirs - Frac Midi-Pyrénées (Toulouse, FR), Musée des beaux-arts in Rennes and Calais (FR), Lyon Biennale (FR), Busan Biennale South Korea (KR), Biennale d`art contemporain de Jukoutsk (RUS), Attic (Brussels, BE), Académie Royale des Beaux-Arts (Brussels, BE), Les Brasseurs (Liège, BE), SCVA - Sainsbury Center for Visual Arts (Norwich, UK), CIRCA (Montréal, CA), MACRO - Museo di Arte contemporanea di Roma (Rome, IT), Chambre Blanche (Québec, CA), ZQM (Berlin, Germany), the Nuit Blanche in Montreal (CA),
