Our annual open call exhibition Fresh Legs 2017 was an even bigger success than we could have hoped for.

Fresh Legs 2017 is currently on display at Galleri Heike Arndt DK Berlin and will be running until September. After July we are on a summer break and so the gallery will be closed in August. During this time we welcome you to call us and set up an appointment to see the exhibition!

KETTINGE 2017
ART RESIDENCY, KETTINGE

We are proud to have the possibility to offer professional artists an opportunity to stay in our art residency in Kettinge. This year we are happy to host two artists, sculptor Iván Prieto and printmaker Fabio Valencia.
Their stay at the residency is supported by Integra Advokater . Thank you very much!
Iván Prieto (ES)
Iván Prieto’s work focuses on ceramic sculptures, but he also creates illustrations and installations. In his colorful surrealistic sculptures, Prieto captures certain fragility of humans and life in general, including indications to physical disabilities (such as deafness and blindness), as well as mental imperfections, with each character being inspired by real-life human counterparts. Prieto wants to explore the transgressing of physical and mental borders in his art, which is in some way relatable for everyone.

Fabio Valencia (CO)
Printmaking artist Fabio Valencia, depicts the poetical aspects of different objects and nature in his print works. In this exhibition, Valencia’s art concentrates on expressing concerns about water supply, and reflections about water’s vitality as an element, creating a clear theme to his series of works. Valencia’s pieces show simplicity and detailed prints that focus on important and current issues of our everyday lives.

ARTIST TALK 
On Sunday 23rd of July we would like to invite you to the Artist Talk with sculptor Iván Prieto and printmaker Fabio Valencia at Galleri Heike Arndt DK in Kettinge, Demark. It is going to be a friendly meeting with this year’s ArtLab residents to have a nice conversation over a glass of wine about their artwork and colorful personalities! Come by to hear interesting stories about their life and work. We are looking forward to seeing you there!

Our event is supported by Guldborgsund Billedkunstråd. Thank you very much!

you can join us on Facebook for the event.

We also hope some of you would like to meet the artists and function as a mentor – meaning to spend some time doing their month stay  -having a meal together or showing them a bit around in our region. Please call as at +45 60902481 in case you are interested to meet one of the artists and being part of making their stay memorable.

Retrospect in BERLIN and Kettinge

2016  Berlin

We are very pleased with the steadily growing number of visitors. Among other things several groups visited us, including the women’s network “Morgenfruer”, they joined our series of lectures / intro arrangement, and it was a super success.

We decided to move our Mini Print Berlin Exhibition 2016 due to technical changes. This opened the possibility to test our new pop-up exhibition concept. “24 hours – my personal choice” 3 days 8 hours a day with a selection of works that I was particularly keen on. We are looking forward to your response to this initiative.

2016 in Kettinge

Galleri Heike Arndt DK Kettinge was also able to record a growing number of visitors, and we were able to help several new customers in Copenhagen to choose art for their office space. Integra lawyers Copenhagen supports our fantastic exhibition discoveries 2016, organized under Artlab Kettinge, where we show new international and local talents. This show can still be visited until December 4th. We were pleased to note that Marian Heyerdahl, introduced by us, had a huge audience with her sculptures “Teracotta Woman” at the annual “Lys over Lolland” art and culture festival.

Artlab Kettinge welcomed Elena, Franco and Mirco from Italy for a 14-day stay at our Residence in Kettinge. They contributed with great enthusiasm and support, now the completion of the space only needs the finishing touches. They also had time to explore and enjoy the surroundings.

Newsletter October 2016

Dear art lovers!

Galleri Heike Arndt DK is pleased to present ‘Hindsight,’ exhibiting a selection of current and existing works –  sculptures by Henry Stöcker (DE) collages by Poul R. Weile (DK) and paintings by Michael Kain (DE). Our choice of title reflects the notion that when exploring a new creative direction, one may not know it until afterwards – as the English saying goes, with the benefit of hindsight.

This idea of retrospect is integral to our exhibition. All three artists having produced work in the context of numerous significant changes in Europe, and have explored a wealth of creative processes. Presenting a journey through multiple directions in artistic expression, ‘Hindsight’ captures experience, reflection and nostalgia.

We are delighted to share this collection of works with you at Galleri Heike Arndt DK. Whether you are an art enthusiast or just want to look around and discover something new, everyone is welcome to join us for our opening on the 5th of October where Poul R. Weile, Michael Kain and Henry Stöcker will be present.

If you are not able to attend the opening event, please do come by during the run of the exhibition until the 29th of October.

poul_weile_02

Poul R. Weile (DK)

Born in 1954 in Odense, Denmark, is a recognized sculptor and visual artist. Integral to Weile’s practice is his open-minded approach and the fact that he follows no style, which has indeed become his artistic signature.

In his mixed-media collages, Weile creates a weird and wonderful environment for a found image, often an erotic female form. His work bridges the line between kitsch and art, and embodies senses of humour and irony that are incredibly inviting. Weile has a great thirst for knowledge, and an inherent curiosity that still today leads him to push boundaries in his own expression of visual art.

michael_kain_02

Michael Kain (DE)

Berlin-based abstract painter, with roots in the traditions of classical figurative art. He now creates works comprised of heavy layering of oil paint and demonstrates attentative experimentation with colour and tone. His pieces can be said to reminisce modernist values of pure painting, where there is an honesty in the relationship between the paint and the canvas and no ‘illusory’ storytelling through recognisable figures.

Today, Kain’s work has been exhibited internationally with significant shows in Germany, Denmark, Great Britain and Russia, and he continues to create art through abstract expression.

henry_stocker_01

Henry Stöcker (DE)

Born in 1954 on the island of Rügen, Germany, is a predominantly sculptural artist whose works are significantly influenced by his extensive biological studies at the University of Rostock and fascination with the subject.

The result is a body of work that demonstrates a perfectly balanced dialogue between science and art. Through playful use of form, Stöcker is continually testing the viewer to look for something recognisable, bringing to life biomorphic shapes that may otherwise only be seen under a microscope. Stöcker’s innovative approach to sculpture has won numerous awards throughout his artistic career, and he remains to be a practicing artist in Berlin today.

We are looking forward to your visit to this unique exhibition! You are very welcome to forward or share this invitation with other art enthusiasts.

Sincerely,

Galleri Heike Arndt DK

Laura – Nanna – Clara – Britannie – Bärbel – Heike
