    João Penalva // MUDAM, Luxembourg

    SOLO EXHIBITION

    Curated by Clément Minighetti. More
    By freely moving from one medium to another, by using diverse materials, the Portuguese artist João Penalva creates artworks that usually combine language and image, and develops poetic fictions that leave much room for interpretation. They come both in the form of artworks of an intimate character and large staged installations in which painting, photography and documents, text and sound, writing and memory, combine to create visual tales. These plunge the viewer into a world that oscillates between reality and fantasy, in which the tenuous line that separates them is not always distinguishable. Through a meticulous composition, specific to each of his exhibitions, Penalva tells a story that is itself loaded with multiple scenarios and whose narrative and visual structure uses figures approaching the ellipse or the asyndetic in order to create a rhythm that gives the artworks the operating power of the fable.

    DIETER APPELT // Kurt Tucholsky Literaturmuseum Schloss Rheinsberg

    Solo Exhibition

    Dieter Appelt's metrically-structured drawings of recent years were created as individual notations, whose open arrangements of lines and dots nevertheless require a musical interpretation. The Sonar Quartett, founded in 2006, will perform his drawing No. 37 (2016) at the opening of the exhibition "Vortex  Für Marguerite Duras" and will develop an improvisation based on Appelt's drawings.
    More
    Appelt's concept of notation provided the initial spark for the eponymous exhibition at the Akademie der Künste. He uses it in novel ways as well as in tribute to the French writer and filmmaker Marguerite Duras. The exhibition also includes photographs and films. The exhibition takes place as a collaboration between the Akademie der Künste and the Kurt Tucholsky Literaturmuseum at Rheinsberg Palace.
