Galerie Reinhard Hauff is pleased to announce the group show TRANSFER * TRANSITION * TRANSLATION curated by artist Thomas Locher, which includes works by Pia Eikaas, Sylvester Hegner, Ana Pavlovic Jensen, Alexander Marchuk, Magnus Pettersen, Philip Poppek, Simon Rasmussen, Martha Svihus and Vladimir Tomic. This group show focuses on young artists from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, who Thomas Locher got to know and appreciate during his 2008 – 2016 professorship there as Director of the Graphic Department. TRANSFER * TRANSITION * TRANSLATION brings together nine artistic positions, which explore formal aspects of a range of diverse media. Because of their very different points of departure, there doesn’t immediately seem to be a unifying overarching theme. The exhibition does not attempt to confine the different art works selected into one conceptual scheme, but offers the artists space for an open and free presentation. The viewer is likewise encouraged to interact with the works on view with an open mind, free of expectations and preconceived ideas. Nevertheless, the concepts defined in the title of the show TRANSFER * TRANSITION * TRANSLATION do attempt to formulate a broad field or a common denominator of ideas, which should make it easier for the viewer to identify coherences and likenesses among the works. TRANSFER * TRANSITION * TRANSLATION sheds light on the artists’ interest in history, art history, politics, subject construction and everyday life, and uses a methodical as well as photographic or cinematographic dispositive as reference system. What they all have in common is an interest in aesthetic form, which invites or asks for translation: in things as well as concepts in transition refusing one-dimensional reading. The artists are well conscious of the distance and the obstructions on the road from point of departure to final form materializing. They know that something goes amiss in every transitory movement while in the process something new gets created.

The
Galerie Reinhard Hauff wishes to extend a heartfelt thanks to all participating artists as well as Thomas Locher for invaluable support in realizing this exhibition.
