    Detailed Description : In Frankes work, the autonomous image, space and in his
site specific installations, apparent opposites seem to meet quiet easily: Soft and hard, light and heavy, density and transparency do not exclude each other but co-exist in carefully balanced tension. Frankes recent work in public space, “achat” (2001-2016), covers the Metro Station Graf-Adolf-Platz in Düsseldorf, Germany.

  • Axel Lieber  (+)

    Biography : Axel Lieber was born in 1960 in Düsseldorf, Germany. He lives and works in Berlin, Germany and Stockholm, Sweden. Axel Lieber uses everyday objects as references and alienates their shape, often by rearranging or downsizing. This intrusion often results in alternative functionalities of the objects. He reduces the density of objets trouvés semantically and fills the resulting gaps with new contents. Axel Lieber studied at the Art Academy Düsseldorf finishing with the MFA. In 1993 he co-founded the artist group “inges idee” which focuses on art in public spaces. Lieber worked as professor of sculpture at the Art Academy Düsseldorf and taught as lecturer at the Art Academy Malmö, Sweden, as well as at the Academy Jyske, Denmark. In 2016 he became a member of the Royal Academy of Art in Stockholm. His works are represented by different important collections such as the contemporary art collection of the Berlinische Galerie. Recently Lieber arranged an extensive installation as a crossover of his works in the permanent collection of the Kunstmuseum Bonn.

  • Markus Linnenbrink

    Biography : Markus Linnenbrink was born in 1961 in Dortmund, Germany. He lives and works in Brooklyn, New York, USA. After finalising his studies 1988 at the Academy of Fine Arts, Berlin, Germany, Markus Linnenbrink started his artistic career by showing in several galleries and institutions in Germany, since 2000 also in an international context. His work is part of important institutional and private collections like ERGO Düsseldorf, Germany, Justiz Vollzugsanstalt Düsseldorf, Germany (wall painting), Ministry of Culture, The Hague, The Netherlands, Borusan Contemporary Art Collection, Istanbul, Turkey, San José Museum of Art, San José, California, USA or Collection Mark Giambrone, Dallas, Texas, USA. Liberation of the colour from the object represented, developing its own materiality and colourful luminosity is Linnenbrink’s story, referring to Jean Dubuffet, Jean Fautrier and Emil Schumacher in Europe in the mid-20th century, followed in the US by Jackson Pollock and Morris Louis at the same time. Linnenbrink elicits from the colour as matter and material a dazzling variety of individual colours, which he can achieve through different admixtures – covering panels, walls or even floors, be it outside or inside. The by far largest drip painting is on view in the lobby of the Rockefeller Center, New York, USA.

  • Huseyin Sami  (+)

    Biography : Huseyin was born 1979 in the United Kingdom. He lives and works in Sydney, Australia. Huseyin Sami’s multi-disciplinary practice engages with painting, sculpture and installation to explore aspects of time, action and process. Sami pours, drips, rolls, stretches and cuts dried household paint in his works, which sometimes incorporate other household objects. Examining the possibilities of colour, form and materiality of household paint, he deconstructs the process and substance of painting in order to formulate what he calls ‘a unique material language of painting.’ Sami has been exhibiting since the late 1990s. Sami’s work is held in the collections of Saatchi & Saatchi, Wellington; Artbank, Sydney; and private collections in Australia, Germany, Japan, the UK and USA.

    Biography : Jan van der Ploeg was born in 1959 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. He lives and works in Amsterdam, The Netherlands. Artistically educated in both UK and the Netherlands, Jan van der Ploeg completed his studies at the Rijksakademie van Beeldende Kunsten in Amsterdam, The Netherlands in 1985. Having shown solo and in group shows in Europe, New Zealand and Australia in galleries and institutions since 1984 (1983), he is also known for his permanent works in public spaces like in the Service Garage in Amsterdam, the Netherlands. His paintings expand the best of contemporary non-objective work in their shear boldness and fearless scope, the entirety of the painting’s dynamics are always greater than the architecture that supports them – maximum effect with a minimum of artistic resources. Inspired by art styles and movements from the past century, connecting the 20th with the 21st century he sees his work creating graphic dream worlds in physical space. Van der Ploeg is a co-founder of PS Projects, an artist-run exhibition space in Amsterdam.

  • Markus Weggenmann  (+)

    Biography : Markus Weggenmann was born in 1953 in Singen/Hohentwiel, Germany. He lives and works in Zurich and Lumnezia, Switzerland. Painter Markus Weggenmann started with solo shows in 1987 and has been shown in group shows since 1992. First part of shows in Switzerland and Germany, his work expanded more international since 2000. Weggenmann’s works are part of important institutional and private collections such as Kunsthaus Zurich, Haus Konstruktiv, Zurich, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Kunstmuseum Singen, Lenbachhaus, Munich, Collection Credit Suisse, Collection Hyundai, South Korea or AKZO Nobel Art Foundation, The Netherlands. Having started with conceptual stripe paintings, followed by high gloss paintings on aluminum, Weggenmann developed his work with side steps to tapestry and sculpture up to a back-to-the-roots distemper on canvas painting. Always investigating various aspects of the intensity and scope of colour, Weggenmann’s work is highly charged reactive substance that wraps the viewer in a kind of atmospheric spatial grasp.

    Detailed Description : His installations, sculptures, assemblages and collages are constructed in constantly changing new shapes, colours and materials (often office or household items found in department stores) and are part of private and institutional collections like Kunsthaus Zürich, Zurich, Switzerland, Kunstmuseum Bonn, Bonn, Sammlung Bundestag (both Germany) and European and US private collections. Reminiscent of the work of Mondrian, van Doesberg or Venet, the complexity of each piece consciously allows imperfections and mistakes. Zoderer moves towards a concrete and constructive position in art.
