Arthur Rosset (who also signes ANIDE) is a multidisciplinary artist from Lyon, currently living and working in Berlin. Throughout his life he found inspiration in nature, poetry, philosophy, hypnosis and music. He has exhibited in London, Lyon, Megève and Berlin. In his recent body of work ANIDE wants to explore the imagination and its benefits to us.
Through different approaches, mediums, materials and experiences, he likes to create reveries that help us to reconnect with ourselves and others. His entire creative process is focused on creating a dreamlike world that invites you on a journey through it. Mediated by music, art and movements, his abstract language is full of figurative suggestions creating many different layers in terms of interpretation and feeling. The most recent expression of this desire to dive into these reveries together with his audience through his artistic examination of the imaginary is the exhibition series called “Theatre of Reverie”.
Born in Wuppertal, Marlon Nikolai has been painting since childhood. He found his current style while trying to answer existential questions through painting. Death and birth already occupy a large space in his life. These contrasting experiences also determine the different moods that transport his pictorial worlds…
The fact that art is a child of crisis is proven true in his urge to create and process, so in his work lightness and melancholy, great moments and everyday banalities, as well as naive ideas of the afterlife and detached images are juxtaposed. They invite the viewer to engage in a unique dialogue….
Images within images, visual dialogues spin the gaze in, engross the searching gaze. Ciphers and signatures, only imaginably designed hints at and immediately loses itself again, finds interpretations and stopping points. Contrast-rich and large-format, expressive colors, wild ductus and filigree forms lead the eye, suck interest and curiosity. When looking at them, one experiences an optimistic ecstasy that gives you the feeling that in all the chaos, there are laws that mean well with us. He is currently studying communication design in Hamburg with a scholarship in Poitiers, France.

His main areas of study include intensive study of painting, drawing and printmaking processes. Beyond that, he already took part in various exhibition projects and residency scholarships and is involved in university politics through his commitment to the study commission of the HGB.
The exhibited works are an attempt to depict constricting and divisive aspects alike with a simplified formal language. The colouring and arrangement of the surfaces and lines convey a spatiality reminiscent of geographical maps. Structures demarcate and yet merge, just as people in different social and cultural contexts live separately from each other and have to find a way to live together. Looking for commonalities and similarities in the diversity was the focus of the artistic exploration.
Kristian Kühn, born 1995 in Heidelberg, lives and works in Mannheim. When his art started to turn from a hobby into an irresistible passion, he decided to quit his day job and to dedicate himself fully to his paintings. His impulsive style is reflected in his colourful, impressive works, mostly on large canvasses. His free-spirited working method allows him to express what is going on in his mind and to be fully immersed in the process. One of his hallmarks is a figurative component underscored by an abstract style. His works are usually loud and garish with vigorous colours, although some of them are more reduced in nature. He refuses to follow an exact recipe. Instead, he keeps surprising his audience with his versatility. Setting himself free is what he is all about. He rejects any kind of self-censorship, and this turns out to be his personal challenge every time.
