Wonderful, intensive exhibition of panel paintings and drawings by the famous Altkalen painter in the immediate vicinity of the Lyonel Feininger Cabinet
In recent years (since his first survey exhibition at the Galerie im Kloster Ribnitz in 2017), Christian Kabuß has allowed himself to be attracted by focal points and draw connections, like Feininger on a bicycle. The result is a cosmos of themes and movements that warm the heart and find a detour to the mind - comet-like via islands of art.
Kabuß' principle of translating active perception, felt with all the senses, the whole body, the integration into the experienced world, as originally and deeply layered as possible into imagery, has gained new forms of expression: reduction to the visually light, figurative, narrative, new types of pictorial intensity, materiality and space
The visible is determined by an aesthetic of relationships and context, gentleness and beauty, blossom and strength, in order to also convey the painful and the relevant. The search for paths of free expression finds its way back into life
you can experience Kabuss' investigations into travel and distance (Japan), silent film and midnight, encounter and resistance, warning and rescue, which are above all one thing in an impressive way: Movement, unfolding, painting.
