Venice - Exhibition

Attached Beside Beyond Architecture

La Galleria Dorothea van der Koelen

23 May 201825 Nov 2018

On the occasion of the 16th Architecture Biennale La Galleria Dorothea van der Koelen presents 9 international artists from 5 countries as Lore Bert, Daniel Buren, Mohammed Kazem, Wulf Kirschner, Arne Quinze,Vera Röhm Turi Simeti, Günther Uecker and Martin Willing with works in different kinds, materials and techniques that show possible relations between Art and Architecture.

This relation can be simbiotic – as some ideal art-in-architecture-projects show – if the artwork enters into a dialogue to the architecture in terms of content and form and on the other hand side the architecture creates a platform where the artwork appears as its best. Sometimes artworks are integrated in architecture (as Daniel Buren in Paris) or they are placed just in front of a building (like Martin Willing in Stuttgart). Others are beyond architecture placed in public space (as Kirschner in Mainz or Quinze in Belgium). The last group are artist who work with the theme of space and create »Concetti spaziali« (space concepts) like Simeti with his ‘Ovali’, Uecker with his ’nails’ and Lore Bert with her painting objects in paper.
