The repetition is a repetition of a repetition, infinite. When repetition isn’t simply the equivalence, the equality of quantity or quality, it is then a consequence of thinking. It is the will, the idea, the force that motivates a person to initiate and act. It is the believe, the desire, the past coming to the present. It is the representation of mind processes. The movement in which ideas, memories materialize in the physical realm. Gathering works of six artists: Manuel Schneidewind, Andrea Garcia Vasquez, Karoline Schneider, Christian Bär, Lena Teresa Flohrschütz & Vera König.
Immersing into their spheres, looking at their mind’s animation, getting to know their techniques of art making. “Facing Repetition” highlights the mental process and the physical actions to make art, posing some questions that derive from the theme: What is a copy? A duplication? A resemblance? A style? A repetition? An original? On the second hand it can be challenging to speak of repetition and the new. The exhibition reveals the objectives and aspirations that motivate the artists to work again; the struggles they face coming back to a blank page. Those struggles they all share and inspirations come from a common space. To face repetition is to stand against, to confront, to give attention, to see.
