AJLart is showing Christian Boltanski, James Lee Byars, Gianni Caravaggio, Douglas Gordon, Markus Keibel, Imi Knoebel, Robert Montgomery, Christine Rusche, Junior Toscanelli, Björn Wallbaum and Ralf Ziervogel at Epicentro art.
In sublim.kursiv the gallerist Anna Jill Lüpertz is presenting an exhibition of outstanding art pieces from international artists that have shaped the contemporary art of the present. Her show aims for a striking contrast to current exhibition concepts. sublim.kursiv renounces any theoretical discourse and the embedding of the works in any political context. Art is at the centre of the exhibition. Paintings, installations and sculptures, all in direct dialogue to each other, give space to a moment of contemplation, little more is needed.
The conviction that art in itself is sovereign, sets the tone for the choice and the presentation of the works. Conceptual installations, like those of Boltanski and Douglas Gordon are confronted with the delicate drawings of Ralf Ziervogel or the monumental murals of Christine Rusche. The poetic work of Robert Montgomery meets the large-scale sculptures of Gianni Caravaggio. Sometimes the artistic interplay of the pieces manifests immediately, other times a slow and delicate awareness arises. The exhibition sublim.kursiv covers many varieties of a precise artistic expression and of a stringency in the act of creating - it emphasizes the unique characteristics of art.
Anna Jill Lüpertz founded AJLart in 2010, under the strong conviction that certain forms of artists expressions need their respective space, even if that entails finding the right space for the right concepts. AJLart as such, is a gallery that does not limit itself to one particular space but focuses on the represented artists and their varying artistic concepts.
AJLart has developed the group exhibition sublim.kursiv in the private exhibition space of Epicentro art. Located in the historical Stalin buildings of Berlin, Epicentro art offers the perfect mixture between white cube and representative architecture. The Epicentro art was founded in 2007 by Marc Fiedler, entrepreneur and art aficionado. Since then, the private exhibition- and collection institution has been showing international artists in solo- and group exhibitions, ranging from contemporary painting to sculpture and photography.
