Introduction and Interviews by 
Professor Colin Fallows 

Following the great success of “Or Glory – 21st Century Rockers“, the acclaimed German photographer Horst A. Friedrichs concentrates on an extraordinary design classic: the leather motorcycle jacket, which developed in the 1950s from being merely functional outerwear to become the blazing symbol of the era’s youth revolt. James Dean wore one, as did Marlon Brando and Dennis Hopper. Since then, the myth has continued to flourish, so that, to this day, leather jackets are one of the few outfits with true cult status. They have soul. They have character and they are worn with pride; they are painted, embellished, embroidered and enhanced with studs and patches. Since decades, Lewis Leathers, the  legendary British manufactory for leather motorcycle jackets, has brought together especially attractive and exceptional examples for their unique and comprehensive collection of vintage leather jackets. The artistic photos by Horst A. Friedrichs make these available to the larger public for the first time and provide authentic insight into this highly exceptional lifestyle.


Nach dem großen Erfolg von „Or Glory – 21st Century Rockers“ konzentriert sich der renommierte deutsche Fotograf Horst A. Friedrichs auf einen ungewöhnlichen Design-Klassiker: die Rocker-Lederjacke, die sich in den 1950er-Jahren vom praktischen Kleidungsstück zum Symbol der Jugendrevolte entwickelte. James Dean trug sie, Marlon Brando, Dennis Hopper. Seitdem lebt der Mythos. Bis heute gehören Lederjacken zu den wenigen Outfits mit Kultstatus. Sie haben Seele. Sie zeigen Charakter und werden mit Stolz  getragen, bemalt, verziert, bestickt, mit Nieten und Aufnähern geschmückt. Die traditionsreiche britische Lederjackenmanufaktur Lewis Leathers archiviert in seiner Lewis  Leathers-„Vintage Jacket“-Kollektion seit Jahrzehnten besonders schöne und ausgefallene Exemplare. Die künstlerischen Aufnahmen von Horst A. Friedrichs machen sie erstmals der breiten Öffentlichkeit zugänglich und geben einen authentischen Einblick in diesen ganz besonderen Lebensstil.

  • SYNTHETIC ELYSIUM - Aljoscha

    SYNTHETIC | ELYSIUM

    Aljoscha


    curated by Gérard A. Goodrow


    20.February - 27. March 2015


    Vernissage 20. February 19 - 21h
    Finissage    27. March 19 - 21h




    Aljoscha creates curiously organic sculptures, paintings, drawings and C-prints that are inspired by his keen insights into bioengineering and gene technology. He is fascinated by the microcosms of organic forms and translates these into highly complex, filigree and delicate works of art that defy classical categorisation.His sculptures and objects are created using thick, viscous acrylic paint, which is meticulously built up milligram by milligram, in some cases over several months, until the final form is achieved. This final form is not predetermined, but rather “emerges” on its own, as if, even in the earliest stages of its existence, the object had taken on a life and a destiny of its own. The Ukrainian artist calls his works “Bioisms”, thus emphasising their vital, organic nature. In fact, he regards each of his works as “living beings”, and thus invests these with as much dynamism, vitality and complexity as possible. According to his own utopian (and perhaps a bit tongue-in-cheek) theory of “Biofuturism”, the future will be marked by a biological revolution, following which mankind will use organic furniture, dwell in living houses and move about by means of organic spacecraft. More importantly, the artist’s studio will be akin to a biological laboratory, where the artist will create organic works of art using living substances, thus creating new forms of life. Aljoscha is a master craftsman. His rare paintings depicting complex biomorphic landscapes are often created with singlehair brushes, and his extremely fine and meticulously detailed pencil drawings, which the artist calls “Quintessences”, appear to have been made under a microscope. His computer-generated C-prints are based on a mathematical formula used to calculate and evaluate the spatial complexity of natural forms and are prime examples of the artist’s continued search for the perfect natural form, revealed and visualized with the assistance of science and mathematics.
