So Far, Still So Close - A VR Art Exhibiton

Yu Hong & Nikita Shalenny 

April 26th - 28th, 2019

peer to space’s director Tina Sauerlaender curates together with George Vitale (Synthesis Gallery) the exhibition So Far, Still So Close. This is the first collaboration between Khora Contemporary (Copenhagen, Denmark), Radiance VR (co-founded by Sauerlaender) and Synthesis Gallery (Berlin, Germany). 

Both artists, Yu Hong and Nikita Shalenny, in their artistic practice deal with the altering passage of time. In Hong’s ‘She’s Already Gone’, the narrative follows differing timelines as the life and aging of the protagonist moves forward while history goes backwards. Nikita Shalenny’s work is mentally extended to infinity. The bridge and the horizon are set between two places. The horizon disappears within space, yet the strong conviction that there is a better world beyond the horizon lives on. Both artists create drawings and paintings by hand that are later transferred into the virtual space to become animated artworks. The visible brush strokes add a layer of physicality to the virtual world.

Opening reception:  April 26th 2019, 6-9pm
Private view: April 26th 2019, 5pm (by invitation only)
Exhibition dates: April 26th - April 28th 2019, 1am-7pm
At: Synthesis Gallery, Kopernikusstrasse 14, 10245 Berlin, Germany

PECHA KUCHA ART NIGHT about NETWORKS

PKAN Logo rot.jpg

January 31, 2018, 7.30 pm at Haus am Lützowplatz, Berlin

Ein Abend. 12 Vorträge à 6 Minuten 40 Sekunden. Je 20 Bilder.

Moderiert von:
Yvonne Zindel (geb. Reiners) und Tina Sauerländer

Netzwerke sind in der Kunstwelt omnipräsent. Sie manifestieren sich in der Form von Kooperationen, Vereinen, Verbänden oder interaktiven, partizipativen sozialen Skulpturen, Salons sowie ihren Äquivalenten in der virtuellen Welt. Aber was bedeuten Netzwerke für KuratorInnen, KünstlerInnen, KunsthistorikerInnen und andere Akteure der Kunstszene eigentlich? In Kurzvorträgen im Pecha Kucha-Format beleuchten die SprecherInnen aus der (Berliner) Kunstszene die Bedeutung des Netzwerks als Plattform für Austausch, gegenseitige Stärkung und nicht zuletzt als eine (produktive) Metapher für menschliche Zusammenarbeit.

Die Veranstaltung wird organisiert von Performing Encounters und peer to space

With Philip Hausmeier, Tina Sauerländer, Sven Slazenger, and Dr. Ursula Ströbele

Virtual Reality technologies are almost omnipresent, but what does this mean for art? Are those technologies capable of expanding our visions of art and design? Can Virtual Reality bring together the digital and physically-spatial experiences?

PECHA KUCHA ART NIGHT: Art in the Age of Earthquakes ?!

For the 3rd time, peer to space and Performing Encounters organize the PECHA KUCHA ART NIGHT that will take place at Martin-Gropius-Bau in Berlin on November 6, 2016, at 4 pm.  

ART in the AGE of EARTHQUAKES ?!

Die Euphorie über die Möglichkeiten des Internet und der Share Economy hat sich in eine allgemeine Skepsis verwandelt. Haben Erschütterungen wie die Enthüllungen Edward Snowdens auch der Aufbruchstimmung in der Kunstwelt zugesetzt? Oder haben deren Akteure das Potential des Internets noch gar nicht erkannt? Wie gehen sie mit der analog-digitalen Hybridität um? Wie kreieren und kommunizieren sie Kunst im virtuellen Zeitalter? Was sind Chancen und Risiken für Künstler, Galeristen oder Museen? Welche Bilder sind heute wichtig und wie funktionieren sie? Was bedeutet der digitale Wandel für die Kunst – und im Besonderen für das Bild?
