Julie Oppermann’s artistic work operates at the interface between science and visual art. With a focus on perception as such, the trained neuroscientist captures the sensory depths of human experience and sensation. Julie Oppermann’s formally abstract paintings move to the level of visual illusions, but clearly transcend the boundaries of the Op-Art genre
“Au 79 – shit and gold” spans an arc between the pliable material gold, its fascinating shine, sacral semantics and a critical examination of the connection between shit and gold (money) against the background of the various meanings anchored in cultural history.
Does Anybody Here Speak Japanese? is dedicated to the three artists, Shigeko Kubota, Ben Patterson, and Takako Saito, whose work is influenced by their transnational experiences.
Andrea Tippels oeuvre can be understood as a transcript of personal reflection characterised by great openmindedness. boa-basedonart is pleased to present a wide selection of her drawings, artist’s books and some objects from the series “Wegwerfe” which have not been yet been exhibited
boa-basedonart is proud to present Friedl Kubelka vom Gröllers collaborative works with Franz West, daily portraits, pin-ups as well as a selection of her movies curated by the artist.
boa-basedonart present the works of two artists with a corresponding fascination for the human image. Japanese-born Hiroh Kikai (1945-2020) and Canadian-born, Berlin-based Joel Stevenett (b. 1980) each have their own unique photographic style, but they address similar questions.
The way of seeing Julie Oppermann’s works is enigmatic, inviting the viewer to reflect on his or her perceptual relation to the world. An encounter with the artist’s paintings and videos is primarily an intense physical experience. In playing with the dynamics of visual perception, the studied neuroscientist captures our immediate sensorial attention, penetrating deeply into the heart of emotion and consciousness.
Basedonart is proud to present Takako Saito‘s „You and Me Shop,“ a compilation of artists‘ books and a selection of never-before-seen works from the 1950s and 1960s. The latter originated mainly in Japan, belonging to a large body of abstract paintings, watercolors, collages, and etchings that showcase the artist’s delicate handwriting. Moreover, they reflect the influence of artists like Ei-Q (Hideo Sugita) and highlight Saito’s largely unnoticed, yet significant contribution to painterly trends in post-war Japan.
“Road to documenta fifteen” is a prelude to the presentation of Takashi Kuribayashi and Rai Shizuno (Cinema Caravan) in Kassel in 2022. The project in Düsseldorf sets the ground for the exploration led by Takashi Kuribayashi and Rai Shizuno on the German grounds
We dedicate the 2nd exhibition of „Resonances of DiStances“ to the work of Shigeko Kubota (1937-2015) and Hanae Utamura (1980-).
Both artists are or were inspired by the relationships between nature, technology and the human being – the transfusion of the organic with the artificial. In a poetic yet unsparing manner, the works exhibited at basedonart explore the ephemeral.
