Palatti Leipzig, Über den Inhalt der Zeit. Artist residency Blumen, Leipzig, and Kunstverein Leipzig, 2011-12.
In the exhibition "On the Content of Time", six Palatti-artists present their new projects, which have been developed during their three months stay in Leipzig. Painting and video, as well as installation and sculpture convey the different artistic positions which derive from a common field of interest: the relation to the city and its cultural, historical and social phenomena is the specific starting point for the historically and reflexively coined works. An exhibition develops, in which common knowledge feedbacks personal biographies. Thus it enables an individual (and new) experience. The artists’ explicit outsider view – also on suppressed history and stories, especially from not so long ago – make the spectator contemplate on present and future and lets time light up in all its dimensions and meanings.
Participating artists: Aimé Pastorino, Gachi Rosati, Aurelio Kopainig, Julia Mensch, Javier Barrio y Lipperheide and Sara Pape García.
With the support of Blumen Leipzig, Studentenwerk Leipzig, Ministerio de Relaciones Exteriores de la Nacion Argentina and Secretaría de Cultura, Argentina.
