Lydia Karstadt curates for the second shutdown and the end of the year, a lonesome 1-person discotheque adapted to the circumstances – In one installation, the large-format collages handmade this year on canvas by Manfred Kirschner, curator Karstadt puts records on the individual visitors’ request. The access functions individually according to the slogan and strictly follows the current pandemic protection rules. In addition to the new large works, there is a small SALE series, which the gallery helps to buy, since 100% of the sales proceeds go to Crystal Ball.

Manfred Kirschner’s new semi-abstract series plays more with colors and geometric forms and deals with the loss and emptiness, the absence of physicality. His protagonists; people, mannequins, who actually usually appear on canvases and books in Kirschners collage sets, stories and as in stage sets populating his works, seem to have disappeared in favor of a painterly, aesthetic language of forms. As it turns out, however, man is not completely forgotten, on the contrary. “I am landscape – put me in” is the title of one of the great works in which beautifully shaped empty spaces open up for insertion. The title functions like a manual for the overall installation of the exhibition, inviting visitors to amuse themselves and to fit into the exhibition context. The artist’s collage photo novels, which he often sticks in photo albums or watercolor books, are also a secret tip. But to do so, one must follow Kirschner deeper into his fantasy and wonder worlds, perhaps like Alice, as she follows the forthoppelden rabbit into the dark hole, into an unknown sphere. For a visit to the exhibition, please look for the “Open” flag at the door or call us spontaneously from 10 a.m. until 9 p.m.

alle ente – Manfred Kirschner

Opening on 7 September 2018 at 5 p.m.

Curator Lydia Karstadt doesn’t seem to have returned from the summer of the year yet, but in the Crystal Ball shop window she is showing a Window of Moving Art, one of the latest collage mobiles by artist and exceptional performer Manfred Kirschner, alongside breathtaking handmade works on canvas.

In a recent interview, Kirschner replied to the question of which artist he currently values most: “I am the best artist I know”. You can only say “alle ente”:
