Andreas Tellefsen / Jorinde Voigt / Ralf Ziervogel

28 Nov - 14 Dec 2008


28th November – 14th December 2008, Studio 1
Opening Thursday, 27th November 2008, from 7 pm

The exhibition Tellefsen / Voigt / Ziervogel (curator: Christoph Tannert) in Künstlerhaus Bethanien's Studio 1 represents a fresh tour of discovery looking for a definition of principles within the graphical cosmos.
Drawing takes on many roles and is accompanied by a range of anecdotes. It can supplement painting or sculpture as a preliminary study, but it may also appear as an autonomous work of art or an instrument of experimental research.
The graphic medium has another elementary significance for Andreas Tellefsen, Jorinde Voigt and Ralf Zier-vogel: they appreciate the nakedness of the drawing and the act of drawing, which highlights their position within their own lifetime. Every drawing, every series of drawings belongs alongside another. Nothing emerges as a self-contained system, and yet it stands alone. Nothing amounts to a narrative of development, and yet one thing progresses logically towards the other – with temporal sovereignty and within an everyday constellation that we view with amazement, somewhere in a previously undiscovered galaxy.
Andreas Tellefsen (*1976 in Norway), Jorinde Voigt (*1977 in Frankfurt am Main) and Ralf Ziervogel (*1975 in Clausthal-Zellerfeld) live and work in Berlin.
An exhibition catalogue (G/E) will be published, including texts by Knut Ebeling and Hans-Jürgen Hafner.
Exhibition and catalogue are being realised with generous support from the Governing Mayor of Berlin, Senate Office - Cultural Affairs.
