About Heike Arndt:
Since Heike Arndt fled from GDR 25 years ago she has had residence and citizenship in Denmark. Today she considers herself as a Dane and cosmopolitan. The cultural change from east to west and her many journeys worldwide have had a great impact on her artistic work. Human relations have always been the focus and main drive in Heike Arndt’s personal life and art. Her East German upbringing and innumerable residences in nearly all continents of the world has given her a great insight in different cultures. Heike Arndt portrays the basic emotions of human beings. From Greenland to Africa she has collected experiences of different life situations and by living amongst people and doing interviews she has tried to find the key to empathy. To Heike Arndt, empathy leads to the respect, acknowledgement and understanding of other people which is so important in a globalised world. This comes to show with her very successful travel exhibition in Greenland which was later presented in both the US and several places in Europe. Heike Arndt tries to make human emotions visible in her art, where it is possible for the viewer to recognize him/herself and a given situation, and she finds it necessary to portray this constant interpretation of nonverbal and verbal language. Heike Arndt worked and had her own studio in Italy with Ansgar Elde (friend of Asger Jorn) since 1993.Since then she moved her studio to Finale /Ligure. Besides German, Danish and English Heike Arndt also speaks Italian, and therefore it is possible to establish a great contact with the audience during the period of the exhibition where she will be present a great part of the time. Open panel discussions with prominent Italian artists, art historians, socialists, philosophers are planned – and also several evening lectures with Heike Arndt.
Heike Arndt about her artwork: “When the human being communicates with its surroundings it uses a verbal and non-verbal language. The human understanding is imbedded in historical, cultural and social contexts and is therefore a basic element in our basic integration and ability to treat each other with respect.The interpretation of the heard and the seen is a constantly ongoing process in the human sub consciousness. We interpret experiences and situations differently due to our history and culture, so therefore the verification of the expressed language – verbal and non-verbal – is necessary to our mutual understanding.It is necessary to strengthen our awareness of the ambiguity in the human communication to prevent misunderstandings and create a more empathetic behavior. We need a ‘home’ to identify our selves as human beings – but in order to meet others with respect it is just crucial to understand that people have different experiences of ‘home’.”
biografi Heike Arndt was born an only child on the 4th of June in 1963 in Strausberg (Eastern Germany).Her mother, Bärbel Nimmert (born 1943), worked as a primary school teacher.Her father, Frank Arndt (born 1943), now retired, worked as an engineer for a government building company. Both grandparents lived their whole lives in Herzfelde and Strausberg, near Berlin.1965 The family moved to Berlin-Mitte to an old working class quarter close to the Berlin Wall.1969 Heike entered the local school and was transferred in third grade to a language school specializing in Russian.1973 The family moved to Berlin-Friedrichshain.1973 She was offered a place at a ballet and sports school. Her parents refused the offer.1976 Because of difficulties the school offered to move Heike to another school. Her parents refused.1976- 1979 The family got a piece of land in Berlin-Altlandsberg. They spent most weekends there and built a small summerhouse. Her grand parents lived nearby and the whole family often got together at their house in the evening to play cards. Here Heike spent a wonderful time with her grandparents painting, playing in the garden, visiting neighbours or heading to the village with her cousin Gabi. Until 1979 she showed great interest in the music and theatre scene in Berlin. She read excessively and started to write diaries. With the money she saved she bought books and records. She enjoyed going to classical concerts and to the theatre. One evening on a street in Berlin she barely escaped from an attempted rape. Struggling with expectations and the image of how a girl was supposed to be she started to suffer from bulimia.1978 The art college refused Heike Arndt as a student. Art school was now out of her reach.1979 She was offered a place to study stone carving and another for ceramics. With the support from her father she chose to learn ceramics. Heike Arndt moved to the small provincial town, Kamenz, near Dresden.Her parents agreed to let her live by herself as the rented room was part of a private household of a 73 year old man and his daughter’s family.At only 16 she moved in with them. In order to get an education in ceramics at the Lausitzer Ceramic Factory she had to work for one year as a simple fabric worker in the different departments of the factory. Their main production was for the exportation to western countries.At the weekends she often hitchhiked back to Berlin or sometimes to Poland or Czechoslovakia. While hitchhiking to Berlin she met her Danish boyfriend.Over the following 5 years they tried to get her a permit to move to Denmark. The eastern German government refused their request for marriage 4 times and suggested she found a German husband. Even a letter to the queen and contact with the Danish embassy did not help.At Christmas in 1980 she was admitted urgently to hospital having suffered a physical breakdown resulting from psychological stress. A week later, she was admitted to a recovery clinic for 4 weeks near Dresden. Later her passport was confiscated and she spent a few days in a juvenile detention centre for having been seen moving around a ferry ship going to Denmark suspiciously but she knew neither the reason for her detention or for how long. A gynaecologist here examined her without any explanation. Her father picked her up, having been convinced by the authorities that she worked as a prostitute. She had had no previous sexual experience at that time.1981 She finished her education in Kamenz with high grades especially in design and production development.1981 She got a job as a potter in a small family business in Crinitz, near Finsterwalde and met Christel Kiesel. They became very close friends. This friendship made a deep impact on Heike Arndt and she started the process of questioning life’s circumstances and society.1983 She moved to Vipperow, 100 km north from Berlin and got a job as a housekeeper for the local priest Meckel and his wife who was also a ceramist. Here she was as much confronted by environmental issues as she was by questions about religion and the freedom of speech.1984 She moved for a short time into the country home of ceramicist Manfred Müllers, which was even closer to Berlin. 1984 She found an empty-looking apartment in Berlin and moved in. She started to work for the ceramist Beate Bendel. As she was not registered in the apartment she was afraid of discovery and went on to find an apartment in Boxhagener Strasse that she sub-let through one of the people she had met previously while hitchhiking which helped as it was impossible even for normal people to rent anything in Berlin at that time.A few months later she started to work for an industrial ceramic factory doing a three shift system. At the beginning of 1985 she applied to get the authorisation to marry and leave the country for the last time. In the same letter she pointed out that whatever the outcome she would leave anyway by the 1st of April, 1985.Berlin had become restless by that time and the first signs of agitation and demonstrations began to happen. Several embassies were occupied by people trying to get out of the country. The Danish embassy worked together with the East German police and refused to help the refugees.Jutta, a close friend of hers throughout the years in Berlin, was the only one who knew about the planned escape and helped to move her most important private things to her father’s cottage the night before from Boxhagener Strasse.On the 3rd of April Heike arrived in Hamburg, West Germany. In Berlin the authorities collected Heike’s private things, both those at her address and the rest that had tried to be hidden at the cottage. She traveled with her boyfriend Henri through Europe to Italy on a false passport. A few weeks later she went with him to Lolland in Denmark where he had bought an old farmhouse for them to live in. In May 1985 she moved to Hamburg for a couple of months to get registered and her West German passport. She refused to work as an informant for West Germany, like she had refused a few years earlier in East Germany.1985 She moved in with Henri Madsen to Errindlev, Denmark.1987 She attended the NCEA ceramic conference in Boston, USA and also stayed a month in N .Y.C.two years later they separated.1987 She met Finn Poulsen and moved to Væggerløse on Falster, buying an old bakery on Lolland for her future studio. Besides her artwork she worked as a teacher, barkeeper and saleswoman in order to pay her bills.1988 Monza, Italy, at the Torneguzzo studio she worked for 3 months with mosaic in glass and stone.1989 She worked at the AVURE artist centre in Porto, Portugal with Lithographs.1990 She received a big commission for a work from Danisco, a decorative work with glass mosaic.1991 She met Ansgar Elde and a lot of other artists at Gallery Syd.She visited and met with many of these artists but only with Ansgar Elde and Inka Uzoma did she establish close lifelong friendships.Every year she would stay at Ansgar Elde and his wife Toni’s house and became integrated as a part of their family.1992 She started printing seriously at the “Il Bostrico” studio in Albisola, owned by Toni’s brother Alfredo. Heike became integrated into this group of artists. Only some of them are named here: Sabatelli, Lou Lamm, Carlos Carle, Sandro Lorenzinni, Lis Zwick, Jørgen Nash and many others.Sculptor Inka Uzoma was the other second home where she often stayed for shorter times.1993 Heike travel most of the time in Europe but also overseas in the USA where she met Russ Tolman an American musician. He confronted Heike with personal issues such as her Bulimia. Her first big solo show at the Museum for Contemporary Art in Maribo took place. Some of her colleagues were very angry and complained.She stayed for a month at the Valparaiso foundation, Mojacar, Spain. She painted and met the writer Inge Eriksen and Rifberg, whose house was close by.Spanish influences in her work are obvious, deep sienna being found in all of her pictures of that time.She travelled and worked with Russ Tolman. She met a lot of Russ’s musician friends and helped organise their European tours.The studio in Kettinge was often now the home for friends giving concerts in Europe like Steve Wynn and many others. But this relationship didn’t last either.She worked excessively but also faced her Bulimia and started counselling. She started regular supervision with a psychologist, which continued for several years. Almost every week she would visit Ulla Frellsen, the Danish painter, to discuss some work or opinions they had on art, politics or just life in general.In the summertime Kettinge would always fill up with people passing by for a coffee or staying for a few days.Heike integrated into the Kettinge area well, known as a globetrotter, but never really established close relationships with locals in the area besides Ulla Frellsen. She always had time for her visitors.1994 She took her first trip to Greenland and was astonished by the nature and decided straight away to come back with a travelling exhibition.Just one year later she was back with a big exhibition travelling as the first foreign artist to tour the coast of Greenland. She was invited to do a big commissioned work for Sønderstrøm Airport, Greenland’s international airport. That work took about 6 months to finish.She worked partially in Greenland and Denmark. The administration of Sisimiut town bought one of her big sculptures. The capital of Greenland, Nuuk, decided to buy a bronze sculpture for one of the public places. This justified the tremendous economical risk she had taken to do this travelling exhibition in Greenland.She fell in love with the fantastic nature and the indigenous people and helped to develop the first common studios where local could work.She also developed a project to start an international school for handcraft for the town of Nuuk.She used the most of her time to follow the locals in their duties and travelled by boat to many different places. She received a lot of practical help to move by helicopter, boat or dog sledge. She went hunting, fishing and picking berries and learned to cook the local food.She lived mostly with local families while travelling. She thought seriously about moving permanently to Greenland. While in Greenland she met with Lars Rasmussen, the grandson of the famous explorer Knud Rasmussen, just as had been agreed ten years earlier.1995 Back in Denmark she really missed Greenland and prepared the second half of her Greenland exhibition.She got the idea of learning to fly and perhaps work as a pilot part-time. The school refused her for a professional career as a pilot. She was over 29.She decided to learn to fly anyway and started at a private school where she met Ib Frydendahl, an engineer with whom she would share the next few years. It was a very loving relationship. They shared their love for flying but also sitting out and counting stars or discussing science. They both liked living abroad. Heike took off for Greenland again and Ib went to Australia for several months and that was the end of their relationship, it was just not the right time. Heike took her exhibition to the military base of the navy and through her close friend Ralph she was able to travel with them for some time but also to live the life in a base far away from any village.Going back to Denmark she suffered from terrible back pain and had an operation a few months later. Ralph nursed her devotedly, as she couldn’t move at all for several months and had no family or other support for her everyday living. Not to move was one of the most difficult things for her. She is a fighter and trained hard for almost a year to get back in shape. She took some months off to recover in Italy with her friends there and slowly began to work again. She concentrated on ceramic and prints. She also painted sometimes in Ansgars studio in Santuario.Back in Denmark she was invited to do a solo show at the Nordic Herritage Museum in Seattle, USA.The preparation for it took almost a year. This show included more than 100 of her pieces combined with a photo exhibition about Greenland.She met the family of Pete Schoening, a world-class climber, and they became friends. She held several lectures about her trip to Greenland. The book, Heike Arndt, was released together with the exhibition.1999 The exhibition travelled to several places in Europe. As usual, Heike went back to Italy and was introduced to climbing. She now climbs regularly besides doing her artwork. She met Lars Thorslund, a devoted climber and they became lovers. They combined work and travel and their last trip together before breaking up was to Ethiopia to do research for a new art project together with Folkekirkens Nødhjælp. She decided not to go further with this project as it would have taken up all her resources.2003 Heike thought about moving to Italy permanently. She found a studio in Finale shortly before returning to Denmark.She opened her annual show in Kettinge and just a week later she found out that she had cancer. Despite this she went back to Italy to oversee the start of the remodelling of the studio. She then flew from there directly to the operation table in Copenhagen. She lost the possibility of having children. She received great support from her many friends and her earlier boyfriends and their families.Heike went back to Italy to recover as soon as she could and just months later she met Alejandro Ross, a polo trainer from Argentina, through her friend Kikka. He moved with her to Denmark.2005 In spite of difficulties in getting Alejandro’s permit to stay in Denmark, they got married in 2005.They took a trip to Argentina together for two months.Heike stayed in Denmark almost a year to support her husband whiles he settled in.She postponed her trip to China. During this time in Denmark she worked on an international project with a group of students and some experts related to art and social behaviour. They had to stop as the project suffered economically due to the “Mohammed Crisis” (cartoons by a Danish illustrator depicting Mohammed and causing an international reaction from the Islamic community).By the end of 2005 she had started her research and travelled to China several times before finding a place for a studio in Beijing.She stayed four weeks in Jendezhen, Sanbao, at a symposium together with Kevin Grealy, Sylvia Nagy and Vilma Villaverde.In China she worked on an exhibition featuring human behaviour and emotions. For almost ten years her work has described human relations and there emotional impact.2007 After working in Beijing for nearly two years she showed at the CIGE art fair. She has met many international artists at the BIAC art compound where she now lives. David Evison, Vanessa Notley, Marianne Heyerdahl, Sebastian Heiner, Laurens Tan, Alexandro, Rugero Rossi, Martin Salazar are the “local” ones, besides many more who are just passing through. She has struggled with the Chinese language and differing interpersonal relations but despite this has managed to establish a print studio in her studio in Beijing.2007: After a short visit to Denmark she was back at her studio in Beijing for a longer working period (February – December ). This time she concentrated on oil paintings, graphic works, ink paintings and some sculptures too. After the challenge to get her studio ready here in Beijing she worked for a big solo exhibition atOne Moon Gallery in Beijing in the fall. She participated with a little solo show at the international Artfair CIGE in Beijing, China, in the beginning of May with the One Moon Gallery and there was a very good response from other galleries and collectors. She made a short trip back to Denmark in the summer to open her summer exhibition there. In the fall she worked in Beijing again, mostly on graphics prints and paintings and the preparation of her new Artbook ”Response”. It was released in the spring of 2008. She participated at the international group show at the Gallery Artchanel in Beijing together with Alexandro Rolandi, Ruggero Rossi, Wang Shugang and a few others. In December she went to Berlin and afterwards to Italy to spend the New Year.2008 The year began with a heavy loss- Toni Meconi, her closest friend and Ansgar Elde`s widow, died 58 years old. After spending the hole of January in Italy she got the following months busy with the preparation of shows in Europe.From March she was back in Beijing to prepare her upcoming solo show at the One Moon Gallery in Beijing and the release of my book. 2009 She finished her work in China and closed down her studio and print place in Feja Sun, Beijing (BIAC Art centre). In the fall of 2008 she had started the Galleri Heike Arndt DK in Berlin-Friedrichshain in Germany and that brought her stay in Beijing to an end. She presented her work at the exhibition Masnesøfortudstilling (DK) and Lys over Lolland (DK) and started preparation for her upcoming museum exhibitions in Italy in 2010. In the summer of 2009 she found a new place a old house in Denmark. Her she and her husband started to rebuild a space for a sculpture/ceramic studio and a painter’s studio with guestrooms for other artists. She received an invitation from Tabor press in Berlin to participate in their Artcallenderproject in 2010.2010 She travels between Italy, Denmark and Berlin in order to prepair several shows in Italy and abroad. She get divorced from her argentinien husband in the spring. The planed transfer to Argentina is put on hold insted she will return to her studio in Finale Ligure in Italy for a longer timeperiod.2011 Galleri Heike Arndt DK in Kettinge(DK) and Berlin (DE) demand all her attention and she introduces fatastic artists like Herbert Mondry,Heike Ruschmeyer, Romen Bannerjee,Frank,Paul, Carina Jo Sivager and Henry Stöcker undtil the summer. Heike Arndt also start to concentrate on her own work and after traveling to Argentina she decides finally to forfill her dream of bringing her large exhibition ” Where is home ?” to Southamerica in the coming years. She establish her first studio in Southamerica and will work with the next part for the exhibition this time-made in southamerica.
