International Summer Exhibition 2018
International Graphic Summer with 33 recognized printmakers

Albrecht Wild (DE) Anna M. Kempe (DE) Christina Tzani (GR) Chloe Grove (GB) Jean-Baptiste Monnin (FR) Lutz Hellmuth (DE) Raquel Algaba (ES) Katalin Kortmann (HU)


Our Summer exhibition shows artists such as Chloe Grove (GB), with her amazing colour pencil drawings and Jean-Baptiste Monnin (FR) (both guests in our ArtLab Kettinge residency in July) who turns buildings into abstract motifs.
In our exhibitions, we strive to promote undiscovered artists – rough diamonds in drawing, street art, illustration, mixed media and similar fields. We offer a platform where artists will be able to jointly exhibit and form networks. The audience is also invited to meet the artists and discuss the works.

International Exhibition “Summer Graphic”

With our new “Summer Graphic” initiative, we are proud to present a group exhibition featuring graphic works by international artists from all over the world. It has been a challenging task to choose from over 400 applicants – with over 2000 works.

Together, the artists present a wide range of different graphics techniques and styles that cover traditional techniques such as woodcut, etching and mezzotint, but also the exploration of modern methods known as digital prints. With global influence, the exhibition guarantees an exciting experience that shows stories from both an individual and a common frame of reference.

Our Summer Activities

Artist Talk with Chloe Grove (GB) and Jean-Baptiste Monnin (FR) 14th of July 3-5 pm open for everyone

Chloe Grove (GB)

London-born artist Chloe Grove is known for her large format drawings made with coloured pencils. The method she uses is based on thousands of strokes, building up layers until the paper reaches a burnished sheen, a method and approach that can go on for several months. Inspired by physics, space exploration and digital aesthetics, her art recreates the essence of the energy from light and reimagines it in a distorted reality. She captures a fugitive moment and recreates the feeling of it. The spectral colours Grove uses resemble the sun cutting through the rain or reflecting in a mirror, bathing everything in rainbow light, creating a vibrant and lively image.

Jean-Baptiste Monnin (FR)

Monnin is a French artist living and working in Berlin, Germany. With a background in architecture and fine arts, the French artist, Jean-Baptiste Monnin describes the architectural and urban space and our perception of it as focal points of his work. He is mostly inspired by the rhythm and the repetition of patterns in architectural constructions. The basis of his works are photographs of contemporary buildings, which he takes himself on trips through the city. The viewers can clearly sense his architectural interest in his works. The urban space and its interpretation are central to his work. In Monnin’s new artworks, he has shifted his focus from outer environmental structures to the inner structure of materials, influenced by time, light and space. The observer’s point of view and his experience is given a crucial role in forming engagement with his work.

Chloe Grove (GB)

Both artists will live and work in July in Kettinge and you will only meet them at our Artist Talk on the 14th of July at 15-17, where they will briefly talk about their work, show work samples and take part in a nice afternoon together with our visitors.

The artists like football, therefore, there will be an opportunity to enjoy the World Cup at the same time!


Artist Talk with Ivan Prieto (ES)  18th of August 3-5 pm open for everyone

Iván Prieto (ES)

Iván Prieto (ES) was born in Ourense, Spain, but now works and lives in Berlin. His work focuses on ceramic sculptures, though he also creates illustrations and installations. In his colourful surrealistic sculptures, Prieto captures a 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. Having also had similar personal experiences, Prieto wants to explore the transgressing of physical and mental borders in his art, which are in some way relatable for everyone. In this way, the works also are a self-portrait of the artist.


Iván PrietoIván Prieto will live and work in Kettinge in August and you will only meet him at our Artist Talk on the 18th of August at 15-17, where he will talk briefly about his work, show work samples and join in for a nice afternoon with the visitors.
