LRRH_ AERIAL is situated right in the historic city center of Düsseldorf in a building made of a spectacular glass and steel construction, which forms the walls and roof of the given space, folding along the building edges of the two neighboring protected heritage sites.

A lofty air space extends up to the entire height of the structure. The impressive interior is filled with light thanks to the all-glass exterior which provides unobstructed views and an exalted spatial quality. A glass elevator brings visitors to the entrance of the gallery located on the upper floor of the adjacent building.

LRRH_AERIAL chapter_¹

KATHARINA GROSSE

20 Nov 2021 – 31 Mar 2022

“For me, contemplating the world has always been linked with simultaneously doing something in it, with it or to it. Painting makes possible the simultaneity of imagining and acting.”

Like Beautiful (a 12-piece edition Grosse designed for LRRH_ in 2020) While Many is made of a photograph printed on metal mesh, yet on a much greater scale. The printed image represents a new branch in Grosse’s exploration of haptic painting and the transformative impact of colour.

The image is chosen from a series of photographs showing situations or actions, connected to Grosse’s painting practice in some way or another. Depicting a moment, where the boundaries between the artist’s body and the material blur in the act of painting, it oscillates between surface, texture, image and object, order and disorder, destruction and creation, tension and release, forced and free-flowing movement.

Printed on a 5.6 x 7.5 m piece of metal mesh and suspended – lushly draped – from the wall, the objective legibility of the image is obscured, focusing the generative possibilities of that which is no longer or not yet visible. Further, the glittering image is in constant flux, as the metal reflections resonate with the viewer’s movement. In reference to Leibniz’s concept of the folding of time, space and movement While Many invites us to experience reality as processual and malleable.

PAULINA HOFFMANN

20 Nov 2021 – 31 Mar 2022

Paulina Hoffmann‘s installation Störung des Gebräuchlichen in the Attic Showroom was created entirely on site – the alliance with the environment is important to the artist. She used the same materials here as in Protektion, which will, a.o. LRRH_ editions, be shown in the Ground Showroom.
Hoffmann has joined black PVC fragments, held together by white seams, to form organisms hanging on hooks. These unite two antagonists in the industrial aspect of PVC and the craftsmanship of the seams, reflecting the conflict between an ever faster world and the desire to slow down. The material finds new forms – beyond its original use and benefits. This creates something that eludes our vocabulary and our urge for explicability and initiates free associations.

BJÖRN SCHÜLKE

17 Jun – 7 Nov 2021

For the opening chapter Björn Schülke created “Solar Mesh Dance”, a hanging solar-kinetic sculpture. The ambient light influences the degree of activity. Energy is briefly saved and converted into motion. The sculpture continuously transforms, whilst displaying a poetic interplay of light – space – motion. The sparkling mesh projects light reflections and shadow plays onto the surrounding walls and windows, thus evoking an arcane aura.

SOLAR MESH DANCE

For LRRH_AERIAL chapter_¹ Björn Schülke realised “Solar Mesh Dance”, a hanging solar kinetic spatial sculpture.

With reference to the work, two posters were produced – as representative, inexpensive take-aways for the exhibition visitors. Marion Anna Simon, painter and performance artist and Björn Schülke’s wife, painted these posters with personal quick portraits. The performance “VIEW ME – SKETCH ME – DRAFT ME” provided those who had the guts to go from observer to observed with a particularly personal souvenir of the show.

The opening presentation moreover features editions by:
Christian Aberle, Albrecht Fuchs, Katharina Grosse, May Hands, Liliane Lijn, Jonathan Meese, Mike Meiré, Paulina Olowska, Rosemarie Trockel, Anselm Reyle and Johannes Wohnseifer, amongst others.
