It takes time. It's risky. It might last forever

In Human Condition, Hannah Arendt states that works of art have the ability to stabilize human lives. Yet during the creation of this work she herself was anything but stable. Making art is a labour that seldom yields a stable result. It takes time until a coherent aesthetic message takes shape. Sometimes risks are inherent in the material. The ceramic objects, for example, at the center of the Künstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral residencies in 2017-2018 can survive for thousands of years, but they can also explode in the kiln or develop irreparable cracks ...

 

Producing, exhibiting and perceiving art always involves risk. Experiencing art exposes one to the danger of having one's thoughts and actions modified. The artists-in-residence of the Künstlerhaus Schloss Balmoral and grant recipients of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate examine such controversial current themes as globalization, communication, gender, religion and visions of the future and explore such questions as the history of forms, mythology and the search for the self. The exhibition will be curated by Olga Vostretsova (curator-in-residence).

 

Artists of the exhibtion: Emma Adler, Ingo Bracke, Ebinger-Schnaß Keramik (as guests), Antye Guenther, Elmar Hermann (in cooperation with Soya Arakawa, Nora Hansen, Anne Hoffmann, Taisiya Ivanova und Olga Vostretsova), Emily Hunt, Berit Jäger, Markus Karstieß (as guests), Hayeon Kim, Fabian Knöbl, Alfons Knogl, Maria Kropfitsch, Lambert Mousseka, Emma Perrochon, Yvonne Roeb, Claudia Schmitz, Daniel Wetzelberger
