Helena Wyss-Scheffler / Kai Klahre

25-04-2019 till
25-05-2019

Helena Wyss-Scheffler (*1983) knows how to fathom opposites with her atmospheric painting: Be it by giving her paintings an enormous radiance with delicate, flowing colour gradients or wafer-thin applied, penetrating colour ponds. Be it with a pictorial language that unagitatedly alternates between precise representationalism and blurred contours imbued with color. Thus, in one and the same picture, the artist allows striking, beautifully elaborated facial features to appear on us, along with faces that are sometimes only hinted at as a color surface, or contrasts them with intense color accents.
The persons Helena has made appear in her latest works in the series "Auftauchen" have been taken from old family photographs on the Internet and inserted into scenes of her current environment. With the depicted people she does not know, the artist interweaves an unknown, alien past with her own present. In watercolour and gouache on canvas, as well as for the first time behind glass, she creates new events and levels of time, which - staged as unspectacular everyday situations - allow us to write our own pictorial history. Helena Wyss-Scheffler studied fine arts at the F+F School of Art and Design in Zurich and lives in Würenlos.

Kai Klahre (*1981) draws the ideas for his paintings and sculptures from drawings. At first undetermined, lines become forms and forms become figures, animals and plants. Thus, with figurative motifs on an abstract background, he creates dreamlike scenes that, despite their narrative character, elude an unambiguous attribution of meaning, but allow his compositions to sparkle with liveliness. In the exhibition, new sculptures are juxtaposed with his paintings, which form the origin of every sculpture.
Kai Klahre studied free painting at the Academy of Fine Arts in Nuremberg and is a master student of Prof. Thomas Hartmann. He lives and works in Nuremberg.

Exhibition with Till Könneker at Burgerspital Bern

25-04-2019 till
07-06-2019

In 2018 Till Könneker developed pictures for the Burgergemeinde Bern and designed her many congratulation and invitation cards. At the end of this engagement, the prints and originals of some of his works can be seen in an exhibition. His installation "Waiting for Memories" will also be on view again.

The Bernese artist is constantly looking for new perspectives, stagnation is alien to him. His works are pervaded by an inquiring gaze on the everyday, giving space to chance. With his art, Könneker provides impulses for a peaceful, more playful world.

Bahnhofplatz 2, 3011 Berne
