Philara is a private collection of contemporary art comprising more than 1,300 works in such genres as painting, sculpture, installation, photography, and works on paper. In the mid-1990s, Gil Bronner began to build his collection, which, with its strong connection to the Duesseldorf Art Academy, has set itself the task of promoting local emerging artists. During a continuous extension of his collection emerging local talents meet established Duesseldorf artists like Thomas Ruff, Katharina Fritsch, Andreas Gursky and Hans-Peter Feldmann as well as international artists like Alicja Kwade, Kris Martin, Pae White, Rashid Johnson and Monika Sosnowska. Over the past two decades, the collection has continuously grown, many of the works being acquired from art galleries that are neighbours to the new home of the collection. The exhibition space, which is hidden in a rear courtyard was once a rather derelict industrial space. It is integrated in such a way that its significant area of 1,700 square meters of exhibition space with a varying height of 5 to 9 meters is submerged into the surrounding structures making it nearly invisible from the outside. The elaborate conversion of this building, a former glass factory, has created a range of smaller and larger exhibition and performance halls, living spaces for artists and a café. Most of the rooms are dedicated to the permanent exhibition and some are designed individually to host specific installations by artists. Artists in the Collection Matthias Bitzer, Shannon Bool, Peter Buggenhout, Natalie Czech, Björn Dahlem, Jose Dávila, Hans-Peter Feldmann, Ceal Floyer, Jonah Freeman & Justin Lowe, Katharina Fritsch, Sabrina Fritsch, Nicolás Guagnini, Lothar Götz, Andreas Gursky, Gregor Hildebrandt, Erika Hock, Rashid Johnson, Markus Karstieß, Thomas Kiesewetter, Alicja Kwade, Leigh Ledare, Kris Martin, Florian Meisenberg, Thomas Rehberger, David Renggli, Christoph Ruckhäberle, Thomas Ruff, Michael Sailstorfer, Leunora Salihu, Karin Sander, Tomás Saraceno, Andreas Schmitten, Daniel Steegman Mangrané, Taryn Simon, Monika Sosnowska, Pae White, Johannes Wohnseifer etc. Philara Collection Birkenstraße 47a 40233 Düsseldorf www.philara.de info@philara.de Photo: Stefan Müller, Berlin


Bettina Bรถhm The proposition of a charity auction that is at the same time supported by artists while also supporting others is not commonplace. In this respect, the idea of holding this particular auction is both ambitious and necessary. It felt as though each of the artists and gallerists that we asked to participate in this endeavour appreciated from the outset that with their generosity in giving works into an auction would strengthen our cultural landscape. And unquestionably, we all benefit by the value of a strong cultural landscape. Individuals who understand and support this key philanthropic idea are needed now and will be needed even more in the future, as public institutions become less financially equipped than they once were and as much as they desire to be. As long as the acquisition budgets of our museums remain at their current standard, our support and engagement is needed, people acting altruistically are needed, Outset is needed. The works that we were able to bring together for this good purpose are of great contemporary timeliness as well as great quality. We feel incredibly supported by all the names that appear in this catalogue, and are very honored and strengthened in our undertaking.

Cheyenne Westphal Phillips applauds Outset Germany_Switzerland’s incredible achievement in presenting this very special Benefit Auction. As part of an art world increasingly looking for new models of philanthropy, Outset Germany_Switzerland’s work in gifting artworks to the collections of the best German museums is so important. Phillips is proud to have this opportunity to continue our support of this effort, demonstrating our commitment to supporting contemporary arts and culture through our global programme of Arts Partnerships. We are driven to explore what an auction house can be in the 21st century, both through patronage of cultural institutions and groups such as Outset, and as a marketplace for a new generation of collectors and artists. Cheyenne Westphal, Chairman Phillips


Udo Kittelmann Outset is an international institution that one would hope to encounter more often. Outset embodies sincere idealism, which has become a rare quality even in the art-world. Outset possesses a strong and consequently unpretentious voice that supports the arts, the artists and cultural institutions. Outset is a trustworthy partner that one could only wish for when working toward establishing a cultural future. Briefly said: Outset demonstrates passion and courage! Udo Kittelmann, Director of the Nationalgalerie, Berlin Udo Kittelmann Š Staatliche Museen zu Berlin, Nationalgalerie Photo: Juliane Eirich


Yilmaz Dziewior The collaboration with Outset was not only an enrichment for the Museum Ludwig, because its collection was expanded with an important work by Avery Singer, but also because our interpersonal exchange was defined by a high level of professionalism and a particularly binding and amicable contact. This is cultural sponsoring at the highest degree. Thank you very much, dear Bettina BÜhm! Yilmaz Dziewior, Director of the Museum Ludwig, Cologne Š Museum Ludwig, Albrecht Fuchs


Krist Gruijthuijsen The necessity of Outset Germany is crucial for the development of philanthropy, especially in a city like Berlin. It enriches the possibility of broadening a dialogue in terms of art production and its contextualization, which is for an institution such as KW pivotal. Krist Gruijthuijsen, Director KW Institute for Contemporary Art Photo: Photo Ali Kepenek


Jan Fischer Being one of the first patrons to have joined, since the founding of Outset Germany_Switzerland, I am continuously taken by surprise by the dynamic and high quality events organized by the new leadership. I believe that Outset Germany_Switzerland is currently the most exciting, privately lead and independent funding institutions in all of Germany. Their first auction will inevitably underline this statement. Jan Fischer, Trustee Outset Germany_Switzerland, Munich


Ramin Salsali Outset is the most democratic, transparent and innovative philanthropic cultural platform supporting public institutions. Bettina Böhm, Phillips, artists and all involved parties deserve our admiration. It takes courage and passion to organize this auction, which intends to enhance a sustainable means of contributing to Outset, as a way of advancing the cultural infrastructure of our society.  Acquiring art from this auction is a unique opportunity to engage and become part of this process.  Ramin Salsali, Founder of Salsali Private Museum, Dubai and Trustee Outset Germany_Switzerland, Dubai, Hamburg, Berlin

Thomas Ruff: ‘I try to find out how the image was created and in what context—historical, political, or social—the image belongs … There are a lot of different photographs, and different photographs have different intentions. Fine art, medical, propaganda, and of course the most influential image-production machine is advertisement. This transformation, let’s say, of the scientific photography into the art world, or advertising photography into politics (as seen in the last U.S. election)—this modification of images from one intention to another brings about interferences. The image, and the meaning of the image, changes.‘ Source: theparisreview.org

Jonathan Meese is one of the best-known contemporary German artists. His diverse, highly individual work, powerful and unsettling, polarises opinion. It is influenced partly by his study of personalities in world history, of ancient myths and heroic epics, which the artist intensifies into a fantastical whole, using elements taken from popular culture. Always walking the tightrope of humoresque distortion, as an artist he consciously takes the risk of causing offence.

Berta Fischer Azelo, 2016 Acrylic glass 65 x 67 x 38 cm 25 2/3 x 26 1/3 x 15 in. Certificate of Authenticity 14.000 EUR Gallery Price

Lightness and beauty. Fischer has a knack to turn the rigid interior of a gallery into an almost inconceivable land of mind-boggling objects. They are both menacing mutants and luring creatures, and the inherent tension and sense of fragility that accompany them is characteristic to the artist, who has been working with synthetic materials for years, always testing the limits of their stability. (This was also put to the test at the show’s opening night, where a spidery piece lost some of its ends). While beauty and art may not always go hand-in-hand, here we see a convincing argument for sculptures both thought provoking and bedazzling at the same time. So much so, one would want to stare at them, touch them, and play with them, while losing one’s self-consciousness outside of the walls of the gallery. Source: galeriebarbaraweiss.de

Armin Boehm Voices, 2017 oil, fabrics on canvas 80 x 85 cm 31 1/2 x 33 1/2 in. Signed 13.000 EUR Gallery Price

Armin Boehm’s paintings oscillate between origination, presence and abstinence regardless of their sujet, that is not really tangible and finds itself somewhere between landscape and portrait painting. Existence and disappearance becomes valid in the haptic of the surfaces of Armin Boehm’s paintings, and compositions, too. The question points to the possibility of painting that the artist lets become subject while developing his painting between figuration and symbolic. Source: meyer-riegger.de

Gregor Hildebrandt Le Vent est tombé (Santa Maria de Guadeloupe), 2016 Magnetic cassette coating, adhesive tape and acrylic paint on canvas 74 x 74 x 3 cm 29 1/4 x 29 1/4 x 1 1/4 in. Signed 14.000 EUR Gallery Price

Gregor Hildebrandt makes great use of pre-recorded cassette tapes as material in his pictures and installations. The tapes are applied directly onto canvases and photographic prints and in room-sized installations. Although Hildebrandt’s work makes formal reference to Minimalism, the addition of a great number of subjective and autobiographical citations actually deliberately repudiates this strategy. For Hildebrandt, the cassette tape as artistic medium, especially in its original function of storage medium, fulfils an important function: it enables the artist to add a further “invisible” dimension to his pictures. Playing with perception in this way is a major characteristic of his work; the picture is completed in the head of the viewer. If the contemplation of his art incorporates the heterogeneous cosmos of Gregor Hildebrandt’s references to music, film, literature and, last but not least, art history, his works turn out to be complex montages, in which pictorial associations from different spheres combine and interpenetrate. Hildebrandt employs the material of his every-day environment without aesthetic or theoretical inhibition and playfully links aspects of conceptual art and minimal art with his personal life and experience of pop culture.

Henning Fehr and Philipp Rühr Festival Sculpture (Absent Healing), 2016 Wood, burning pen 204 x 170 x 170 cm 80 1/3 x 67 x 67 in. Signed 12.500 EUR Gallery Price

[T]he works revolve around techno and the history of the culture of the outside, festival produc- tion, the esthetics of escapism and desire in late capitalism since the Beatniks. Monterey and Land Art. Fehr and Rühr who are not sculptors but filmmakers had objects reconstructed, which were the creation of others. They present the beauty and happiness of sculptures at festivals, sculptures that are made by artists, construction managers, professionals and fantasy fans, anonymously or in groups, of short-lived existence and bound for destruction either by recycling or burning (Burning Man, Nevada). It is Festival Art, previously called Folk Art. The titles originate from a list of exceptional human experiences, the branded phrases from the book “Idols of the Tribe. Group Identity and Political Change” by Harold R. Isaacs, the geometric shapes from mathematical systems whose idealist aesthetics probably also mean social structures and individual psychological processes.

Times, spaces and places are caught in a slur. [...] In the objects formal languages shift. It’s about longing motives, promises of happiness. The position of this work process is both inside and outside. It refers to what motivates. Thus, of any possible origin, which is both fractal and mono, reality and construction.

Wolfgang Tillmans Plant life, c, 2013 Inkjet print mounted on aluminum, in artist’s frame 71.9 x 94.1 x 3.3 cm (in artist frame) 28 1/3 x 37 x 1 1/3 in. (in artist frame) Edition 1/3 + 1 AP Signed 30.000 EUR Gallery Price

The artist’s studio, a classic trope from art history, here takes the form of an inventory, not a peek behind the scenes but an attempt to create a cartographical representation of what this space and its constituents mean to Wolfgang Tillmans. The studio’s role as a complex entity or apparatus that is itself generative reflects back into the production. “Studio” suggests a spectrum of designations: a photographic darkroom, a place for manual production, a viewing space where artworks are hung and seen (for the first time, but also revisited or viewed over a duration), a testing ground to place works in different configurations; a model room for developing projects; a social space in which different practices are carried out in immediate proximity to one another; and an archive in which the history of the artist’s own work, and its present, are managed, engaged with, and housed.

Wim Wenders Sauerkraut Factory, Montana 2003, 2015 C-Print 127 x 153 cm (framed) 50 x 60 1/4 in (framed) Edition 2/ 6 + 2AP Signed 25.000 EUR Gallery Price

Wim Wenders is one of the most important figures to emerge from the New German Cinema period of the 1970s. Alongside directing atmospheric auteur films, the artist works with the medium of photography, and his poignant images of desolate landscapes engage themes including memory, time, loss, nostalgia and movement. Sauerkraut Factory was shot 2003 in the middle of the American Midwest. About his experiences of the American and German roadside Wim Wenders states: “I think I had wide-open eyes for America, and „the American landscape“ in a general sense seemed extremely attractive to me, both as a photographer and a filmmaker. But maybe that long absence from Germany of altogether 15 years has enabled me to see places here with the same wide-open eyes now. What has remained the same: in those landscapes, German or American, I’m still looking for the traces of civilization, of history, of people.” Source: Blain | Southern, Berlin

SEO Raum für Dich III (Room for you III), 2016 Acrylic on canvas 160 x 130 cm 63 x 51 1/4 in. Signed 41.000 EUR Gallery Price

The Korean-born artist SEO who now lives in Berlin artistically deals with the themes of “globalization” and “technologization” and their impact on our surrounding world, on our culture and on what moves us as human beings. With our continually advancing technical capabilities, we are driven by the desire to always create something new. Globalization changes our actions, thoughts, feelings and life; worlds and values become blurred. Internationally SEO is known for her large-scale, brightly colored rice paper collages in which she is dealing with these issues thematically. Her most recent works are extensively elaborated acrylic paint works that contain rice paper elements sporadically. They consistently show architectural, surreal spatial compositions of clear geometric shapes and figurative elements. Looking at these, we wake up in a digital, colorful world, in a diffuse intervention of vastness, emptiness, nothingness, color surfaces and water, sky, mountains and meadow.

Hossein Rezvani FRENCHIE TURQUOISE, 2014 Hand knotted with 400.000 knots per sqm in Isfahan, Iran, with persian highland wool and pure natural silk 300 x 200 cm 118 x 78 3/4 in. 11.500 EUR

About the Frenchie Design: French nostalgia. The series picks up the pattern of classically hand-woven Aubusson, but designs it more minimalistically. “You don’t find the faded vintage look in my collections otherwise, but here you do”, explains Rezvani. “Because here it fits perfectly.” Frenchie is offered with a knot density of 400.000 knots per sqm, using Persian highland wool with 35% pure natural silk. About the artist: Deeply influenced by the elegance of the Persian rug culture, Hossein Rezvani grew up to appreciate its intrinsic role in Iranian art and culture. Woven into the fabric of Iranian history, religion, society and culture, the Persian rug is as much part of Iran’s philosophy as it is of its culture. Persian carpets have always been and remain profoundly entrenched in Iranian culture and the daily lives of its people. For generations, the Rezvani‘s have produced and distributed masterpieces from their home country. Hossein, who is the third generation of a family to be involved in this profession, is dedicated and passionate about the rug industry and he gives the traditional Persian rug a contemporary twist. Each single rug designed by Hossein has the desire to bring forth something new that holds an emotionally touching and enduring value. During manufacture, a significant value is placed on reinterpreting classic craftsmanship and combining this with design that is contemporary and simultaneously elegant. Another main aspect is to avoid mass production and rather to produce a bespoke rug that may be inherited by future generations of families. Thus, creating a modern classic for the 21st century.

About the brand: “21ST-CENTURY PERSIAN CARPETS” This is what our carpets have been called many times, but our mission is more than just creating a carpet. We are the only brand to offer contemporary carpets Made in Iran, with up to 1.000.000 knots per square meter and we are very proud to bring this cultural heritage back into today‘s contemporary living spaces. We produce exclusively with the best raw materials. We use Persian cork- and highland wool, the most durable and best quality wool in the world and pure natural silk. We also refrain from using mechanical or chemical treatments. Natural dyes are a must, which not only preserves the sublime characteristics of the high quality natural materials but also underlines the vibrant colors and shine of these timeless masterpieces. The result is a unique craftsmanship that carries the seal of quality “Made in Isfahan”. Source: hosseinrezvani.com

Claudia Wieser creates works on paper, objects and installations that revolve around the contrast between old and new. In her work, traditional handicrafts and materials such as hand-blown glass sculptures, ceramics, tapestries, intricately coloured wood objects or complex drawings made of gold leaf and coloured pencil meet digital printing methods and clean cut geometric objects made of mirror or shiny metal.

Laure Prouvost Metal Man - Talking About Art, 2015 Video (2.09 min.) and metal sculpture 142 x 150 x 98 cm 56 x 59 x 38 2/3 in. Certificate of Authenticity This piece is unique 21.000 EUR Gallery Price

Laure Prouvost’s artistic output consistently returns to themes of escape into unfamiliar worlds or imaginings of unexpected alternative environments. A strong narrative impulse propels her practice, resulting in immersive, transmedial installations with interwoven story lines that combine fiction and reality. Her videos, installations, paintings and tapestries unhinge commonplace and expected connections between language, image, and perception. Stepping away from traditional linear narratives, the artist crafts sensual environments laden with playful mistranslation that open a space for the viewer to grapple with the unstable relationship between imagination and reality. The elasticity of the written word comprises a central element of Prouvost’s practice, stating: “Words for me are very visually powerful, because with words people create their own vision. I am just hinting and suggesting possibilities, the audience is making its own image in its head. It is also about misunderstanding, misinterpreting, miscommunicating - words also suggesting failure and other senses.” Source: carlier | gebauer

14. Julian Charrière and Julius von Bismarck Objects in Mirror Might Be Closer Than They Appear, 2016/2017 Video, sound; 17‘ 17” Edition 3/5 + 2AP Certificate of Authenticity 25.000 EUR Gallery Price

Presented as a double-channel video installation with a semi-transparent mirror in the center, Objects in mirror might be closer than they appear is a new film by Julian Charrière and Julius von Bismarck. It alternates between found footage from NASA and other archives, showing some of the first images of Earth seen from space and close-up imagery as reflected in the eyes of a deer, which the artists recorded in the exclusion zone near Chernobyl, having mounted a small portable camera to the animal’s antlers. Both images present the viewer with scenarios where humans have extracted themselves from their natural habitat. Early space travelers’ unfiltered awe at the first sightings of the blue planet stands in stark contrast to the dystopian post-nuclear wasteland that was left after the Chernobyl catastrophe. Where the exclusion zone is portrayed as an uncanny universe, seen through ghostly projections, the NASA archive footage presents Earth from a metaperspective, in all its fragility. With this project, Charrière and von Bismarck continue their artistic collaboration that has been going on – parallel to their own separate practices – since they started sharing a studio in Berlin in 2011.

Fabian Marti Deep Egg (Nihil), 2015 Epoxy, silver gelatin print (photogram), mounted on aluminium 206 x 144 cm 81 1/8 x 56 3/4 in. Certificate of Authenticity 22.000 EUR Gallery Price

Predominantly, the works of Swiss artist Fabian Marti deal with formalism, abstraction and Op Art. Through the multifaceted layering of spirals, stripes and dotted patterns the objects and symbols acquire a hypnotic character that allows the viewers access to a secluded world. Shamanism, the engagement with the conscious and the expansion thereof in form of a temporal, spatial, spiritual and cultural borderline experiences are returning elements in Marti‘s body of work. He combines traditional handcraft and manual methods of artistic production with the newest technologies and mechanical reproduction techniques in a way that the former don‘t suffer the loss of their directness. His new photograms (all silver gelatin print, mounted on aluminium, covered with epoxy resin.) show egg-shaped convergent circles in the center of the image – which at first appear to be the artist‘s enlarged fingerprint. Using computer made stencils, Marti exposes the photo paper directly to light, evoking a unique range of colors in the photographic process. The artist skillfully deploys the resulting blurs, dust particle and scratch marks as well as overexposures as an aesthetic component of the work. Source: Galerie Peter Kilchmann, Zurich

Tony Cragg Listeners, 2015 Glass 37 x 35 x 21 cm / 14 1/2 x 13 4/5 x 8 1/3 in Certificate of Authenticity This piece is unique 60.000 EUR Gallery Price

Tony Cragg is one of the world’s foremost sculptors. Constantly pushing to find new relations between people and the material world, there is no limit to the materials he might use, as there are no limits to the ideas or forms he might conceive. Cragg understands sculpture as a study of how material affect and form our ideas and emotions. His work does not imitate nature and what we look like, rather it concerns itself with why we look like we do and why we are as we are.

Arik Levy Rock Triple Fusion 113, 2015 Mirror-polished stainless steel 113 x 113 x 69 cm 44 1/2 x 44 1/2 x 27 1/4 in. Signed This piece is unique 68.000 EUR Gallery Price

The fusion of several rocks is one metaphor for a slow motion snapshot of a lifetime process. Just like the biological fusion in nature and the social fusion of society and cultural identity, this series expresses the very critical moment of material and emotional merge. The verticality of these pieces farther extends the artist‘s ever-lasting opposition and resistance to natural process and its forces. Not without effort these compositions are standing, nearly holding a Tai Chi posture, and reflect a specific moment in our life and active environment. Each rock has its gravity and its reflections, and each visual weight creates a tension that gives a dynamic to the movement and a speed to the frozen moment. Like every captured moment in life it is at the same time a connection to the past and a forecast on the future. It is an everlasting process, a fraction of a global structure that defines the presence of a physical, emotional and spiritual being, just like our trace in existence and in the future imagination.

Michael von Hassel North Korea - Kindergarten, 2017 Metallic lambda archival print mounted behind diamondwhite glass 180 x 120 cm 70 4/5 x 47 1/4 in. Edition: 1/5 Signed 15.000 EUR Gallery Price

Michael von Hassel is longing to show his surreality in a hyper-realistic way and impresses the beholder with keen crispness, vibrant colours and strong arrangements of light. The pictures may appear to be painted but they are photorealistic artworks. The fascination lies in enabling the viewer to see more than he would ever be able with his own eyes, if he would stand at this very photo-location by himself: all the different colours in nature available in abundance are caught in many single photographies taken over a certain period of a day, are melted into one single multilayered image. The result is a hyper-realistic landscape with seemingly synthetic colours. The more or less marginal themes show our world way more intense. Michael’s images are an invitation to the viewers to leave their reality for a moment quasi to get caught up in the maelstrom of timelessness and fantastic sides of our world - as he wishes – this should be seen every day. Michael’s sources derive both from the capitals of the world and from the very end of civilisation. In early 2017 Michael went to North Korea to portray this very different kind of a society. North Korea Kindergarten shows a real nuclear rocket in the centre of some after-school-care-and-training-club. Source: Michael von Hassel

Signed This piece is unique 40.000 EUR Gallery Price Seungmo Park uses layers of wired mesh to create sculptures that, seen from the distance, show the image of forests or human figures. A closer look will make the representation dissolve. These dynamics in perception reflect the artist’s conviction that there is no essence to be captured. The title of his series MAYA implies that “in truth, there is nothing” or just an illusion. Other works show life-size human figures with skin made of thin aluminium wire, creating a pattern of waving, parallel lines that reflect the light, again alluding to the emptiness underneath the surface of the ego.

Born in Japan, Ikemura moved to Europe as a student. After spending time in Spain and Switzerland, she eventually settled in Germany in 1985 where she continues to live and work, dividing her time between Cologne and Berlin. In 1991, she was appointed professor of painting at the Berlin University of the Arts. Over the last 30 years, Ikemura has created an substantial body of work, which crosses the disciplines of painting, sculpture, and works on paper. Painting came first. Her early canvasses from the 1980s deal with the themes of dreams, struggle and conflict. In 1987 she began experimenting with sculpture. And in the early 1990s abstract interpretations of the female form emerged as the primary theme within her work. Source: news.artnet.com

Abstract shapes plotted in bright colors characterize David Renggli‘s paintings. The intensity and brightness of the colors is created through the technique of reverse painting on glass. In multiple layers, the color is painted or sprayed directly on the glass, leading to a visual depth. The works exude a lightness and spontaneity, which invite the viewer to muse and explore the effect of proximity and distance. The artist creates spirited color formations in which the materials have seemingly become independent and merged autonomously. Source: peterkilchmann.com

Thomas Kiesewetter’s monochrome metal sculptures consist of curved and sharp-edged, arched and almost two-dimensional abstract shapes whose starting point is always a maquette made of cardboard and paper. The flat, easy-to-fold source material is clearly traceable in the finished sculptures: crimped connection points, fanned seams and long bow taut tracks suggest lightness and spontaneity that are in contradiction to the barely malleable metal. It is only the chipped pieces of paint, since the material was colour coated before processing, that reveal the forces used to bend the metal.

The paintings, sculptures and drawings of Thomas Scheibitz demonstrate the categorical resolution of the abstract and the figurative. Scheibitz investigates the relationship between the historical and the contemporary pictorial world, among them include references to media, advertisement, theater and film-sets. The work “gp 194” illustrates the construction of a stage with primary colours, where the open space is framed by three elements. The foreground is marked by a sign containing unknown characters, with an erected tail and a white hill. These components announce a new game in which yellow, red and blue may play a main role.

Ulla von Brandenburg Grauer Wald, 2011 Cut out on ancient maps 48.5 x 54.5 cm 19 x 21 1/2 in. Signed 6.200 EUR Gallery Price

The work of German artist Ulla von Brandenburg (born in 1974 in Karlsruhe, lives and works in Hamburg and Paris) is based on historical elements of all kinds of origin and significance, which the artist finds in literature, the visual arts, theatre, Hollywood films, photography as well as in glossy magazines, daily newspapers and at flea markets. Her works, which include films, drawings, paper silhouettes, watercolours, magazines, wall drawings and performances, always circle around the “rules” of social reality. She frequently goes back to materials which make the late 19th century and the transition to so-called Modernity tangible, whose “cultivated” appearances and image ideas she uses as a formal filter, and not one shaped by a subjective artistic style, in discussing contemporary collective experiences. Ulla von Brandenburg: ‘Mich interessiert schon alles Vergängliche besonders. Meine Wandbilder sind zum Beispiel immer nur für die Dauer der Ausstellung gedacht. Danach werden sie übermalt. Auch bei meinen Aquarellzeichnungen schütte ich so viel Wasser darüber, dass die Zeichnung fast am Verschwinden ist. Man braucht keine Kunst für immer. Ich finde es gut, wenn Kunst auch vergeht.‘ Source: kunsthallezurich.ch

FLESHOUT can be seen as the enhancement of Czerlitzki’s dust-series. Whereas the trace herein defined their process-related making as much as their handling, exhibiting and further being, FLESHOUT (re-)presents the sealing of a precedent process and a new form of distance that is created through a thick layer of liquid acrylic being applied recto and verso. The viewer is finally confronted with a finished work, he can no longer take part in the works’ further transformation, whether it was leaving a simple trace in or wiping away all the dust from the work’s surface. In a place where he was able to fully track the artist’s process, now the varnish-like closure keeps him on a maximum distance and presents a pre-ready, hermetic object.

Marcel Dzama absorbs on a formal level a variety of influences from art history, from the pre-war avant-garde until today: particularly recognizable are Dada, Man Ray, Duchamp, and Oskar Schlemmer – by the latter in particular his Triadic Bauhaus ballet, whose original costumes Dzama saw at the Reina Sofia in Madrid. Additionally, his apocalyptic collages and drawings feature references to literature, expressionistic film history, pop culture and current events – the drawing Die Revolution wird weiblich sein (2017) for example refers to the women’s march which took place due to political transformations.

Jens Einhorn’s abstract paintings are material collages, which border between object and painting. Layered by torn mesh, bleached fabrics, paint, and adhesive mediums, these relief-like works emanate a strong spatial presence with elegant traces of the artist’s process. In his new colourful series, Einhorn uses various types of mesh to create dynamic yet light-handed forms, lines and threads. Merged together, these layers create a path through which the eye can trace and wander. The work Harmonie Ist Eine Strategie (Harmony Is A Strategy) is inspired by the process of meditation in which thoughts and emotions seemingly flicker, lift, melt and then dissolve into one another. This sense of the unfixed, ever-shifting, merging, receding, and re-emerging of elements can be seen everywhere in Einhorns work. Source: DUVE Berlin

Designed to echo the layout of a traditional newspaper, “Classifieds” and “International News” resemble the typical front pages of classified advertisements and international news sections, respectively. However, Elmgreen & Dragset’s oversized prints have an intentionally faded effect and are cropped to include only the middle of the page. Both are dated “Tuesday, October 1, 2013”, the opening date of the artists‘ solo exhibition “Tomorrow” at London’s Victoria and Albert Museum. “Classifieds” includes fictional classified ads that encompass many subjects, including apartments for rent, dogs, bathroom & kitchen, and campers, flanked by personal ads on either side. Interspersed throughout are a mixture of found images and photographs of iconic Elmgreen & Dragset works, including “Short Cut” (a car and caravan breaking through the ground—here referred to as “Chateau Road Coach, 2003”, with a nod to the year of the actual work) and “Marriage” (double sinks connected by a winding drain pipe, here with the caption “New bathroom?”). The imaginary personal ads range from the likes of an old lady seeking a ride to work to a man who wants to go cruising in the woods to a band searching for a new singer.

“International News” begins with the headline “British Architect Norman Swann Found Dead in His Family’s South Kensington Apartment”, a direct reference to Elmgreen & Dragset’s fictional character Norman Swann, the absent protagonist of their exhibition at the V&A. Visible sections of surrounding articles refer to British cultural heritage, recent political events, homoerotic gay saunas, and the headline “Community Service for Unemployment Benefits.” In a cut-off shoe advertisement, the distinctive Prada font can be discerned from the last two letters, “DA”.

“You have to follow all my instructions.” And you do. You very reasonably do. You smile. You scream. You dance. You express your own self. As you are requested to. The instructor (Emily Chaveau) shows you how. She smiles. It crosses your mind that primates smile as a show of potential force. You do feel somehow threatened. Wait, no. You feel happiness, she says. She talks of finding an inner calm while flashes of images are projected in the background. Your pulse catches up with the electric speed. As she comes closer, and the expressive play of light casts a shadow on her face, you submit more and more to her orders. Her hands touches you, you feel her breath. Breathe. Look at me in the eyes. Her gaze addresses you directly. But you are not alone. Off-screen a whole bunch of you started dancing bizarrely, expressing their own selves. You are not protected by the screen, it has become transparent, and you see your awkward mirror-image in it. The experience is carefully monitored. You present your clumsy little ego for the benefit of the cause. The artist is recording it. As Falsnaes puts it,

performances are about “creating a significant experience”. In this work, Falsnaes shows us the underlying mechanisms of the enjoyment mottos we constantly submit to. Living in the now. Be the person you want to be. Chaveau lends her voice to the watchwords of a culture of wellbeing. It feels desperate, yet we feign, we bare our teeth and clap our hands. Her authoritarian gaze guides us in the chase for an elusive present, where we can grasp the now and our own selves with it. Yes, she said – “your own”.

The work Relic, 2016 is made with the slip casting method, where liquid clay is poured into a plaster mold. This is a common technique for mass production of pottery and ceramic and has shaped our modern life. Relic, 2016 is built from different casts and has additionally hand built elements attached, resembling motives of Afghan war rugs. For example the two round shaped pieces on the bottom of the works symbolize abstracted grenades, while the fleshy half organic top piece is more explicit a shape of a grenade. Though the ornamented part is originally a casted Ikea tee light holder, by itself a mass produced object. The whole series deals with a fetish-driven consumer society, cultural voyeurism and the link between artwork and consumer commodity. Source: Carbon12, Dubai

Grünfeld‘s creatures, rather than raising issues of visual perception or the politics of style, make reference to a popular storytelling tradition from southern Germany - the politics here are symbolic. Called wolperfinger, the stories tell of improbable animals with human traits. Like most folk tales, they are moralistic; suggesting that Grünfeld‘s strange pets are meant to put us face to face with our principles. By manipulating Mother Nature, in the form of antlered animals with webbed feet or furry specimens with wings, Grünfeld seems to wander into a dialectic territory: the real versus the imaginary and, perhaps, eventually good versus evil.

Haring understood something of his debt to sixties culture- its public and popular culture and thought, that is, as opposed to its art. On the latter front, he was selective: he adored Andy Warhol, but he was skeptical of the “overrationalization” he found in Minimal and Conceptual art, and worked partly in reaction against it. Of the events and ideas that flowed through American everyday consciousness in the sixties, on the other hand, he wrote, in that same letter to Leary: “I was born in 1958, so while I was growing up I was only aware of the events in the early Sixties through a strange mixture of sources… television, Life magazine pictorial essays, and some associations with enlightened relatives. I was very absorbed and interested, however, and I think affected at a time when my personality and ideology were in their most ‘affectable’ or impressionable stages.” Source: Haring.com, David Frankel, American Beauty

Robin Rhode S‘ Class Made in China, 2010 Oil pastel on paper 75 x 105 cm (framed) 29,1/2 x 41 1/3 in. (framed) Signed 10.000 EUR Gallery Price

For the South African artist Robin Rhode, drawing is never enough. He draws on gallery walls, then throws his body against the images he’s made, or drags his hands through the fresh chalk or charcoal. He draws in public places, in choreographed acts or in improvised, highly physical exertions. Drawing is not a stand-alone artistic medium; it forms part of a constellation of techniques, from performance to photography and video, which in turn informs a larger cluster of concerns, from his own childhood to the politics of urban space. It would be a mistake to inscribe Mr. Rhode’s public drawings into a tradition of graffiti and street art, though he did have an early flirtation with break dancing. In South African cities, especially in the townships, walls were usually decorated not with individual tags but with political murals, often with messages of social inspiration and public protest. Mr. Rhode’s more abstract and poetic wall drawings have at least partial roots in that tradition, though the murals and installations of Sol LeWitt and Bridget Riley may also come to mind.

Rottenbacher works with two types of rings. The majority are transparent plastic forms inside of which there are fine webs of wires fitted at regular intervals with small, colorful LED lights. The exteriors of these forms are enhanced with painted stripes of various color intensities, thicknesses, and densities. These dynamic compositions of painterly line formations meet the strict linear arrangement of the wire networks. The regularity of the arrangement of colorful points of light further accentuates the works, creating a dialogical interplay that characteristically structures the ring forms and simultaneously illuminates the surroundings in a way that is as invasive as it is diffuse. As forms of light and color, they illuminate the entire (.......) space and ultimately occupy it in relation to the surrounding light, which is constantly changing according to the rhythm of the time of day.

121. Tomás Saraceno View of Uyuni from Lacaille 9352, 2017 Fine art InkJet Print 64 x 45 cm 25 1/4 x 17 3/4 in. Edition 3/15 + 3 AP Signed 8.500 EUR Gallery Price

Near the border with Chile, located in southern Bolivia, Salar de Uyuni is the most expansive salt flat in the world. Both bare and barren, the Salar has been witness to the great astronomical discoveries of the century. It is well known among astronauts who seek its refuge upon returning from space missions, perhaps nostalgic of its vast landscape or curious to experience the image of the endless horizon. In the Salar light moves as energy does at the surface of the Sun. As it reaches the Earth transformed into light, it illuminates the infinite cloudscape above our heads. There is no horizon to parse our sight, there is only movement. Light is bound upwards and downwards surmounting any sense of gravity. Fernando Pessoa once wrote, “Dust hovers where the night ends, on the edge of visibility.” Interstellar dust, full with the elemental basis of life, forms stars in molecular clouds and aerial dust modulates atmospheric clouds. Dust, which astrophysicists once found as the condition for the possibility of sight generates all sorts of forms: cirrocumulus, cumulonimbus, nebulae. Earthbound, or standing at the outer edge of this planet, clouds are everywhere, as movements of light, as formations swirling in airflows, on which dust rides. Printed using traditional lithographic methods, the photograph View of Uyuni from Lacaille 9352 was produced in Salar de Uyuni January 2016, where the artist Tomás Saraceno has traveled to record and reflect upon the blurred horizons of the cosmic plane. The photographic print is pressed on cotton paper. With the passing time, dust settles on the print surface, making a layer, a seam of time, a record of its own. 40.000 tons of cosmic dust reaches the Earth every year, simultaneously traversing and inviting us to partake in its planetary scale.

Avery Singer Untitled (Study), 2014/2015 Ditone print 45.7 x 61 cm 8 x 24 in. Edition 100 + 20 AP Signed and numbered 2.000 EUR

Human figures metamorphose into geometric shapes, mannequins, or machines; intricately refracted choreographies of light are projected into painted spaces; canvases capture cubistic compositions: Avery Singer’s work is recognizably inspired by the formal vocabulary of modernism. But the questions she explores are hardly the problems of centuries past. The accurate simulation of the refraction of light, for example, continues to be a major challenge in digital animation and videogame technology. Singer constructs her figures, broken down into geometric components, in a freeware 3D program and then transfers them onto large canvases using an airbrush and masking tape. Painted in grayscale, the resulting works leave the viewer confounded as to what they behold, both in regards to the canvas’s material facture and the physicality of what they show: figures that look like paper cutouts and yet read, if not as individuals, then certainly as characters. Many of them (e.g., as in the series “The Artists”) are faintly caricatured types based on art-world figures who go about their daily business, sitting in a studio or at a cafè, staging performances or photo shoots.

Singer’s edition for Texte zur Kunst is a study in spatial depth illuminated by a double source of light: a female figure, seen in a close-up quarter profile view, fixing her hair. The light, engendering a play of subtle shading on her face and hair and the wall in the background, animates the digitally generated surfaces and bathes the scene in an atmosphere that is dreamlike and theatrical in equal measure for an iridescent tableau delicately poised between warm and cool, nostalgia and a highly contemporary appeal.

Andreas Slominski Wieselwippbrettfalle mit Souffleurkasten, 1986 Wood, plywood, wire and staples 18 x 11 x 50 cm 7 x 4 1/3 x 19 2/3 in. Signed 9.000 EUR Gallery Price

Andreas Slominski (born 1959) is one of the most remarkable representatives of a new spirit of sculpture and installation art. He made a name for himself with his trap objects beginning in the late 1980s as well as his seemingly absurd performances, whose practical use bore no relation to the effort involved in them. Dirk Luckow, General Director of the Deichtorhallen, Hamburg: ‘In his art, Andreas Slominski combines humor, sarcasm, engagement, absoluteness, and an enjoyment of art. He is a master of aesthetic double strategies.‘ Source: deichtorhallen.de

Haim Steinbach’s art plays a major role in the contemporary artistic discourse on the object. Starting with the practices of Minimalism and Pop Art, as well as Performance and Conceptual Art, Steinbach’s ideas evolve towards the formation of a new paradigm for the object and its place. It links important elements of these art forms and sets new focal points between art and the everyday, production and consumption, and the relationships between image, object and space.

Paloma Varga Weisz Untitled, 2007 Watercolor and pencil on paper 31 x 41 cm 12 1/5 x 16 1/7 in. Signed 4.000 EUR Gallery Price

While still a student, Paloma Varga Weisz turned her attention to figural sculpture in wood. Though she adopts familiar motifs and explores the history and imagery of figural sculpture, she alters and subtly questions these. In Varga Weisz’ fantastical figurations, the transition from the animate to the inanimate world is fluid. Bodies are often disguised, as in the wicker figures, the angelically expressive suspended figure or the white-clad youth of the Still-Life with the chemical laboratory glasses arrayed above him.

The buyer shall be responsible for all taxes, costs and fees related to paying the purchase price. Exempted from VAT are export deliveries to non-member states (outside the EU) and also to companies in EU member states upon submission of their VAT ID number. If the buyer of an artwork purchases it for export exempt from VAT, he must promptly inform OUTSET of this by notification pursuant to section 3 of thes e auction conditions, in particular to which non-member state the artwork is supposed to be exported or if the buyer intends to export the artwork him self.

The withheld VAT will be reimbursed to buyer by bank transfer if he provides to OUTSET va lid export documents by customs authorities or the shipping company. If the buyer of an artwork purchases it as an intra-Community delivery exempt from VAT, he must promptly inform OUTSET of this, in particular to which country of the European Union the artwork is supposed to be delivered. When notifying OUTSET pursuant to section 3 of these auction conditio ns, the buyer must prove it has satisfied the requirements, in particular submissi on of a valid VAT ID number. Also in this case OUTSET will invoice German VAT.
