X-treme. Curator. Lily Fürstenow. October 2020. Participating Artists: Martina Singer (DE), Thomas Manelli Mann (DE), Gerard Caris, Tim Cierpiszewski (DE), Franziska Stevick (DE), Tatyana von Leys (DE), Heikedine Günther (Swiss), (UK), Mathias Roloff (DE), Semra Sevin (DE), Karol Hurec (DE), Lisa Claire Stolzenberger (DE), Julie Davidson Smith (Canada), ROBERTO ROLANDO (It)

 Extreme conditions call for extreme action. Online exhibition X-treme is an ongoing project curated by Lily Fürstenow that aims to exhibit online the work of contemporary artists across the globe in an attempt to analyse the role of art in the times of crisis. Facing repeated Corona lockdowns artists all over the world experience unprecedented circumstances where usual creative routine is interrupted with dismal artistic and financial prospects for the future. It is essencial therefore at this moment in history to analyse art at the extreme and artistic production under extreme conditions. It is an attempt to take art to the extreme, possibly to its extreme and utter limit /as far as the online format allows for that/. What is artistic practice like during the conditions of X-treme, like pandemic, financial crisis, political volatility and uncertain future? It is important to look into the strategies of artistic production and alternative modes of exhibiting art under the pandemic conditions - which is in short the aim of this online show. Artists who would like to reflect on these questions are welcome to participate, irrespective of age and country of origin. All kinds of formats are welcome: giffs, moving images, drawings, paintings, foto, sketches, open letters and poems and more. This exhibition is a follow-up on the two online exhibitions curated by Lily Fürstenow since the beginning of the Corona pandemic in March 2020 entitled Art against Corona. Kunst in der Coronakrise with over 50 participating artists. 

 For participation please contact via e-mail:   /   Facebook -  Lily Fürstenow or instagram: @lilyfuerstenow

Extreme Bedingungen erfordern extreme Maßnahmen. Die Online-Ausstellung X-treme ist ein fortlaufendes Projekt, kuratiert von Lily Fürstenow. Das Ziel des Projekts ist es, Werke zeitgenössischer Künstler*Innen  online auszustellen. Angesichts der wiederholten Corona-Lockdowns erleben Künstler auf der ganzen Welt noch nie dagewesene Umstände, unter denen die übliche kreative Routine unterbrochen wird und die künstlerischen und finanziellen Aussichten für die Zukunft düster werden. Es ist daher in diesem Moment der Geschichte von wesentlicher Bedeutung, die Kunst in Krisenzeiten und die künstlerische Produktion unter extremen Bedingungen zu analysieren. Es ist ein Versuch, die Kunst auf die Spitze zu treiben, möglicherweise bis zur äußersten Grenze / soweit das Online-Format dies zulässt/. Wie sieht die künstlerische Praxis unter extreme Bedingungen aus wie z. B. Pandemie, Finanzkrise, politische Volatilität und ungewisse Zukunft? Es ist wichtig, sich mit den Strategien der künstlerischen Produktion und alternativen Ausstellungsmodi auseinanderzusetzen - was in Kürze das Ziel dieser Online-Ausstellung ist. Künstlerinnen und Künstler sind unabhängig von Alter und Herkunftsland zur Teilnahme eingeladen. Alle Formaten sind willkommen: Giffs, bewegte Bilder, Zeichnungen, Gemälde, Fotos, Skizzen, offene Briefe, Gedichte und vieles mehr. Diese Ausstellung ist eine Fortsetzung der beiden von Lily Fürstenow kuratierten Online-Ausstellungen seit Beginn der Corona-Pandemie im März 2020 Art against Corona mit über 50 teilnehmenden Künstlern.

Artist Heikedine Günther


Down to the Core

In our times when superficiality is omnipresent having an adverse  effect on contemporary artistic practice reaching out deeper into the core of things is a happy alternative. Core as the essential deeper substance underlying universal phenomena as well as artistic production is always worth taking a closer look especially in the times of crisis like pandemic, war and political instability. In her work Artist Heikedine Günther treats the concept of core as her major subject. What is the core of color, the essence of vision and how does core relate to the cosmic light and darkness? The paintings by Günther consist of multiple layers of color pigment applied one upon the other whereas the golden color serves as the very basis. This is responsible for the mysterious luminosity that shimmers through to the very surface and all along the contours of the oval elongated forms dominating the composition. 

The floating shapes work directly on the soul without destraction of subject matter or content. The paintings convey a unique equilibrium of color planes that evoke Goethe’s farbenlehre and offer a contemporary interpretation of the centuries-old tradition of rendering of color and light in painting. 

Heikedine Günther's paintings invite us to think of various stages of sublimation from physical to spiritual states that could be represented by geometric forms. The duality of figure and ground adds extra luminous vibrations to the picture surfaces. The non-perspective conception of space and anti-materialist idea of form characteristic for her work appeals directly to the mind of the spectator due to formal simplicity, subtle variations of color tones that results in a certain rhythm. The core paintings bring to mind celestial motion of the planets caused by cosmic energies that are translated into ranges of intense color applied onto canvas. The shimmering colours accentuate the Greenbergian “optical  illusion”  of painting and the flatness of its support. One’s eyesight is fascinated by the play of luminosity produced by the optical space created by the artist's hand.

Open Letter from the Artist

COVID has affected everyone differently, for me it has influenced not only my personal life but my artistic practice and the direction of my work. As COVID came to our doorsteps in the New Year of 2020 colour started to fade from my paintings. My lush vibrant works became a tapestry of figures navigating the darkness; a subconscious shift in palette and direction that evolved until I felt too overwhelmed to create by the COVID lockdown. Eventually I stopped painting along with the stop of everything else; school,  gatherings and all the simple pleasures of living in a community. I felt like those figures alone and lost in these new and dark landscapes that went on for miles. My focus became being a full-time parent, keeping my only child safe and doing home schooling for the first time from March to the end of June. My art and all the hope and inspiration I once had for it was packed up and put away with all the other parts of our lives that were in lock down. Then came Spring and with it a taste of freedom as my daughter eventually was able to play more freely outside with friends - COVID in Kingston where I live was well managed. It was not until the end of June that I had the mental/emotional space to paint again. Making art is not just about having physical space like a studio, it's also about having a mental space big enough and healthy enough to receive and process inspiration from our environment and within ourselves. Spring's sunlight and warmth opened up our worlds a bit more and slowly I began to paint again. Having been so removed from my creative self I felt a new found sense of energy and joy in painting. I also felt unleashed from the constant effort to parent and homeschool my daughter, I was like a horse released from it's stall ready to run wild and I didn't care where I was going. I painted with total abandon letting myself paint without worrying about whether it was part of a "serious" body of work. I just let it out. From this came a daily practice that helped my work evolve into the paintings they are today; large colourful bold works filled with pinks, patterned figures & animals moving through landscapes filled with light and the warmth of my new found inspiration. I have hope again when I paint and gratitude for my health and the people that I love. Living in Canada is a privilege."

Péter A. Leigh

MASCULINE (Work in progress. 2020) 

According to the artist: "This is from a project during the first lockdown, work in progress but not yet resolved. Representation of masculinity in this hard edged and fragmented coloured way. The Pristine manufactured toys here repurposed and re-thought of as symbols of outmoded masculinity, a redundancy of a conventional representation - an object exaggerated, affected and verging on the theatrical. The fighting (frightening) element of the perceived role becoming camouflaged. colours functioning as a roll to take physical objects into a realm that is more optical and maximalist. The exaggerated representations and ideals of masculinity become more and more ridiculously camp as muscles almost burst like armour protecting what is underneath but close to the surface"

Selftaught artist, busy in art since 32 years, located in Munich.
„10 seconds self-timer – that's how much time I have to position 
myself in my „black box“, which I built especially for the 
recordings in my studio. Blurriness is wanted. Martina Singer's 
photographs are characterized by high liveliness and lightness. 
Fabric – costume/everyday clothes, space – stage/scenery, light – 
color/black-white, time – entertainment/short or long exposure, 
mood – irony/seriousness are important elements of her photographs.
Various experiences such as an internship in the painter's
 hall of theatre, dance, movement work (Feldenkrais, Kung Fu,
 Butoh dance), appearances at the Munich Opera as Butoh dancer,
 as well as several years of attendance at a drawing school
 laid the foundations for her work. 
In the first place, the series „Mary“ was created, fairy-tale,
 fantastic and mystical. The protagonist experiences different
 adventures, travels different worlds, always with a 
breeze of humor. The second phase, the „Black Box Phase“, 
makes use of similar structures. Here the costumes used in the 
„Mary Phase“ are put together piece by piece to form 
an evercreasing costume, which is staged anew in the 
Black Box after each join. In the third phase, 
the protagonist begins to travel into reality with 
the completed costume and also other new costumes.
The „stage inventory“ is also created by Martina Singer
„I also deal with different women roles, take often ironically.
 Fabric, clothing, costume, shell versus nudity stage, 
these topics keep me busy.
Mythological aspects, - the animal, the plant – 
inspired by the butoh dance influence my work:“

Stefania Pinsone 

Stefania Pinsone is an Award-winning artist (EWAL Premier Art Award London 2019 Top Prize winner). Awarded by the head judge Professor Emeritus Dan Fern at the Royal College of Art of London. Her artworks are characterized by a powerful personal painting style that combines a strong figurative imagery with the elegance of a new contemporary impressionism of the digital age.

Her artistic project is double and dedicated to exploring both the inner space of the brain mechanics using a complex system of symbols and signs, and the external space, distorting the images as seen through a video screen in its multiple meanings. This last project is characterized  by extreme experimentation in style and in the use of different materials, among them Plexiglas, aluminum, iron, rhinestones, LED lights, copper, resin and metallic or fluorescent colors.

Stefania Pinsone was born and raised in Rome, she holds an MFA degree and a MA in Art History. After some years of professional artistic work - mainly in Rome and Milan - and a long period of art teaching in high schools in Rome, in 2009 she moved to the Basel area in Switzerland starting an international activity. Her artworks are published in the Art book: International art today – 2016 and 2017 editions, curated by Dr. Ingrid Gardill. Published also in the autumn and winter 2020 editions of House & Garden, Tatler, GQ and Vogue ​(The Condé Nast Publications Ltd, Vogue House, London).

She has received in 2019 the recognition certificate by the Ambassador of Italy to Switzerland, H. E. Silvio Mignano for being the best expat Italian talent in her field.

Franziska Stevick

Franziska Stevick catches the gentle dynamics between evolution and definition. Her often surreal depictions of transformations in movement and meaning are forever alleviating.

Born into Berlin’s urban creed of grey skylines and enthralling nightlife, she has an affinity for nature and a great love for the outdoors.  Frequenting the outer limits of Brandenburg under the stars or not; Franziska brings much of that connection to her sought tranquillity towards the natural ebb and flow of things, into her works.

Franziska Stevick has over the years been a part of many intimate collections - be that performative, exhibitions, commissions or print.  Alone or in collaborative projects alike her work spans many varied techniques with a sure focus on collage. Not limited to this however, Franziska has explored paint, shop installations and lithography (gravure). 

Franziska has continued her exploration of painting, drawing, installation and lithography and has found paper, in the form of collage, to be a satisfying and inspiring media. Often using discarded magazines and newspapers, her reform of the structure and the characteristic uniformed grid used in printed media combined with her drawings perfectly exemplify the noted comfort in nature’s ebb and flow.

Franziska’s most notable projects include; collages / drawings of characters, untitled, newspaper on paper.  

“When people see my work, I hope they experience the world of details”


Julie Davidson Smith

Julie is an award-winning Canadian artist who has exhibited her work across Canada and is part of an upcoming exhibition in New York’s Van Der Plas Gallery in late November 2020. Her work explores the themes around the human spirit, our connection to nature, ourselves and each other - the collective unconscious. This unseen space that exists between all living things is a rich tapestry of universal/human energy. This invisible fusion of ideas, emotions and stories transcend the superficial boundaries we have created as humans - class, gender, geography and time itself. Julie's art taps into this "in-between" place where her passion for design, meaning, and storytelling guide her to the heart of it all - what it means to be alive beyond the superficial boundaries of our society and culture.
