Peter Kilchmann Gallery presents the group show with Vadim Fishkin, Fernanda Gomes and Andreas Lolis. The show is taking place in conjunction with the second solo show of the Mexican artist collective Tercerunquinto. Both exhibitions focus on works that are distinguished by their unconventional approach to art and institutional frameworks.
The title The things I want to express are so beautiful and pure refers to M.C. Escherʼs (1898-1972) artistic ideas diverged from the classical themes in visual arts. This makes it difficult to classify his oeuvre in the usual categories. Taking Escherʼs exploration of impossible architectures and infinite constellations as a starting point, this show aims to present three different forms of sculptural practice that share this sense of irony, esprit and ambiguity.
Vadim Fishkin (1965, Soviet Union), lives and works in Ljubljana. Fishkin has expanded on his artistic field so it includes all types of research and explorations. His sculptural works include light projections, altered ready-mades, light-bulb installations and helium balloons. In 2012, Fishkin has participated in group shows at Kunsthalle zu Kiel, Germany, the Art Gallery of Kosovo in Pristina, and the Shanghai Biennial. In 2005, he has represented Slovenia at the Venice Biennial, Italy. The new catalog “Light Matters” will be published shortly by Gurgur editions & Association DUM.
Fernanda Gomes (1960, Brazil), lives and works in Rio de Janeiro. Her sculptures echo Brazilian Constructivism, and are more often than not found objects, which she joins through stacking or stringing. This year, Gomes will have a solo show at the Centre International de lʼart et du Paysage in Vassivière, France, and currently participates in the Istanbul Biennial, Turkey. In 2012, she participated in the Sao Paulo Biennial, Brazil and in the Rennes Biennial, France. Recent solo shows include Museu da Cidade in Lisbon, Portugal (2012) and MAM in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil (2011).
Andreas Lolis (1970, Greece), lives and works in Athens and is a sculptor working mainly in marble. The forms and materials of his sculptural installations seem to be easy recognizable as packing material, cardboard boxes, etc., but are meticulously crafted in marble. Lolis has participated in various group exhibitions e.g. this year at Palais de Tokyo in Paris, France, and was included in the Athens Biennial, Greece, in 2011.
