Figure Outing, 13th of July
Schloss Machern at 2 pm
Curated by Kristina Semenova
The romantic landscape around the Castle Machern, an English garden, a knight tower and garden sculptures. Painting was a long time servant of aristocratic representation and the medium for the perpetuation of the self-image of the nobility. What is the potentiality of the historic spaces of the castle for contemporary art?
Artists from New York Academy of Art Matthew Comeau, Esteban Ocampo, Camila Rocha, Hannah Stahl and Meisterschüler of Professor Neo Rauch Sebastian Burger, Stefan Guggisberg, Marie Carolin Knoth, Mandy Kunze and media artist Piper Mavis from Los Angeles create site-specific art works and put already existing works in dialog with the castle. This poses on the one hand the danger to stylize the contemporary art for decoration, while on the other hand offers the chance to re-read the place and the art works as well as to generate new meanings through this encounter.
