mianki.Gallery works with a new generation of artists. It ac- quires its stand-alone profile through by focussing on the use of unusual materials. Its artists form special imageries by using and working with remarkable and unique materials.
At the POSITIONS BERLIN Art Fair mianki.Gallery shows works by:
Silke Katharina Hahn's approach: the change of material by heat. Her favourite material: hot glue and wax. The character: reduced, concentrated and reflective.
The work by HALFA (1950 – 2006) embodies eight creative phases that partially overlap, but also develop from the previous. These phases include amongst others the roller and moiré paintings, the scenogram, sceno mades and camera works. HALFA follows no style – he follows an attitude.
Tina Heuter concentrates on moods, expressions and situations, yet without getting lost in detail. These sentiments are by no means in your face, however, or even striking. Due to the rough surface, which denotes a skilful combination of facial expressions, gestures and posture, Tina Heuter succeeds in telling stories through her sculptures.
He is a photo painter in the best, traditional sense: in his photo paintings Jakob Kupfer creates compact works of art out of diffuse colour and light reflections. Kupfer does not merely depict things; rather, he lets the light itself live out its creative streak.
Constanze Vogt’s objects are material transformations. Her artistic process is a reflex of her medium. Through concentrated, lengthy and monotonous working processes, phenomena of transition become visible.
