THE FINEST BUBBLE

Magdalena Los and Pablo Schlumberger

curated by Lisa Klosterkötter

22.09 – 20.10.2019

 

 

 

Yellow presenta The Finest Bubble, un lavoro a quattro mani di Magdalena Los and Pablo Schlumberger. La mostra è a cura di Lisa Klosterkötter, curatrice freelance di mostre e di eventi culturali, nonchè co – fondatrice di Strizzi, un project space con sede a Colonia.

Nel 2018 Yellow era stato ospitato nella sede tedesca con una collettiva di pittori italiani.

 

L’opera che Magdalena Los e Pablo Schlumberger realizzano in occasione della mostra coinvolge, a partire dalle pareti, l’intero spazio. Gli artisti presentano un murales composto da disegni, dipinti e rilievi.

“The Finest Bubble” è il risultato di un’interazione di forme e immagini, alcune precedentemente realizzate e altre nate durante lo sviluppo e l’allestimento della mostra.

 

I due artisti, con base ad Amburgo, hanno già lavorato insieme su una vasta serie di cicli.

Recentemente hanno creato una serie di sculture e disegni sul tema del Putto.

Lo studio e l’uso di un’immagine così tradizionale nella storia dell’arte è analizzato da un punto di vista moderno e ironico e gioca un ruolo primario nel lavoro a due mani di Magdalena Los e Pablo

Schlumberger.

 

Generalmente di supporto alla narrazione, in gruppo, in duo, fluttuante, seduto o sdraiato, il putto spesso funge da elemento ornamentale rispetto al soggetto della scena, come pretesto pittorico e decorativo oppure per enfatizzare il contenuto.

I putti rappresentano i sentimenti dei personaggi adulti principali, raddoppiando o moltiplicando le loro espressioni facciali e i loro movimenti, imitandoli, assumendo i loro stati d’animo o rigettandoli eloquentemente. L’opera “The Finest Bubble” vuole investigare queste atmosfere e relazioni che intercorrono tra le figure.

Durante il vernissage sarà servito al pubblico “Amuse Gueules” – dei piccoli assaggi – realizzati apposta dalla chef berlinese Paula Erstmann e ispirati al tema della mostra.

 

La mostra è realizzata con il gentile supporto del Dipartimento di Media e Cultura della città di Amburgo.

 

 

 

Yellow presents The Finest Bubble, showing a collaborative work by Magdalena Los and Pablo Schlumberger. The exhibition is curated by Lisa Klosterkötter. She is a freelance curator and cultural manager as well as the co-founder of Strizzi, a project space based in Cologne, where Yellow was invited to exhibit Italian painters in 2018.

 

Magdalena Los and Pablo Schlumberger are producing the work “The Finest Bubble” for their exhibition at Yellow. The piece includes the entire room, although refers primarily to the walls. A wall fresco will be created, which will include drawings, paintings and a series of reliefs. “The Finest Bubble” is the result of an interplay of forms and images that are brought along and newly developed during the process at Yellow.

The Hamburg based artists have already worked together on a wide variety of work cycles. Recently, they created a series of sculptures and drawings that dealt with the theme of the Putto. The observation and use of a traditional, art historical symbolism from a modern, scrutinizing and humorous perspective plays a primary role in the collaborative work of Magdalena Los and Pablo Schlumberger.

 

Mostly as a supplement to the main plot, in flocks or as a duet, floating, sitting, lying, storing, the Putto often adapts as ornamental elements to the subjects of its environment and is used for pictorial and decorative purposes as well as to reinforce and underline the content. Putti represent the feelings of the main adult actors, doubling or multiplying their movements and facial expressions by imitating them, incorporating their moods and expressively discharging them. These peculiar inter-figured and atmospheric conditions are investigated in the work “The Finest Bubble”.

“Amuse Gueules” designed by the Berlin chef Paula Erstmann and based on the exhibition “The Finest Bubble” will be served at the vernissage.

 

The show is kindly supported by the Department of Culture and Media Hamburg
