Stephane Leonard ■ Inseln
Temporäre Galerie in der Quartiershalle auf dem Campus Rütli – CR²
Rütlistraße 35, 12045 Berlin
june 16th to 29th, 2016
For the exhibition series TRANSFORMATION, the Berlin artist Stephane Leonard created the site-specific installation INSELN (islands) in collaboration with students from the secondary levels of Campus Rütli. The cooperation between the artist Leonard and the Rütli teenagers began in April 2016 with a joint exploration of the neighbourhood. Together they looked for seemingly casual, random forms, colours and line arrangements, jointly created by man and nature. This was followed by discussions and common drawing sessions. To conclude, the collective work was assembled in a specially built room-in-room construction within the exhibition space.
On view were the large-format results of this unique collaboration.
The Temporary Gallery takes place in the frame of Ein Quadratkilometer Bildung Berlin-Neukölln. Partner is the Campus Rütli – CR². Exhibitions and accompanying programmes are made possible by private donations. Responsible for the concept are Ida Schildhauer (initiator) and Silvia Ploner (curator). TRANSFORMATION VI was made possible with the support of Freudenberg Stiftung and Evangelisches Johannesstift.
