It is an immersive projection on all the walls and floor of the gallery.

The exhibition consists of a series of inkjet photo collages, a slide projection and a new edition of his HD video ‘Out of Projection (2009 – 2014)’.

Displaying a series of canvases characteristically heavy with paint, collages and including sculptures and watercolours, Kiefer explores the thematic dialectic of war and peace, love and pain, beauty and destruction. Among the study of these dualities are Keifer’s recent interest in the function of the iconographies of a variety of myths, that if the Christian, cabalistic and Germanic. These subjects are drawn from literary sources, among them is Ingeborg Bachmann’s (1926 – 73) poem ‘In the Storm of Roses (1953)’ from which Keifer coined the title of this exhibition. http://ropac.net/exhibition/im-gewitter-der-rosen-in-the-storm-of-roses Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac Mirabellplatz 2 A-5020 Salzburg Austria —————————————————— Zheng Guogo: Visionary Transformation Veneklasen/Werner Opening 21 March – 25 April 2015 An exhibition of new works by Zheng Guogo. This is his first solo show in Berlin and features paintings, photographs, sculptures and his 20 minute film ‘Mind Acts Without Attachments’. Guogo is recognised as one of China’s most versatile contemporary artists heavily driven by his thematic approach. Tied together by a narrative line, the exhibition features works from a variety of series some which attempt to express the mental space of artists like Marcel Duchamp and Joseph Beuys as well as paintings inspired by Buddhist Thangka paintings. The structural effect and the psychological affects of mass commercial media are explored as with the conflation between fiction and reality. http://www.vwberlin.com/exhibitions/Zheng%20Guogu:%20Visionary%20Transformation/dates VeneKlasen/Werner
