O Brien's Magneten Junge. Works by Camillo Ritter - 08.04. - 12.06.2022

O Brien's Magneten Junge. Works by Camillo Ritter - 08.04. - 12.06.2022

Space-filling installations that could be abandoned film sets, photographs that speak to a desire for painting and abstraction, and whimsical sculptures brought to life by video loops - Ritter's works bubble with a mischievous delight in intangibility. The recent wall reliefs and sculptures made of tadelakt, a glossy plaster native to Morocco, recall ancient ornamentation as much as futuristic design with their "specky" surfaces and subjects. The description "fallen out of time" applies to a large part of Camillo Ritter's works. They seem a bit like jammers, subtly manipulating the viewer's basic locating systems. The numerous works in the exhibition are mysterious, playful, irritating and ideally suited to losing oneself in them. They tangibly reflect the questionable self-location of man in the digital age. Camillo Ritter was born in 1990 in Lower Saxony, south of Hanover, and first studied film and media at the University of Hildesheim and finally sculpture in the class of Prof. Andreas Slominski, at the Hamburg University of Fine Arts. During the last years he participated in numerous group exhibitions, including the art event "The Gate" in Hamburg's HafenCity. After graduating in 2021, Camillo Ritter's first institutional solo exhibition followed under the title "Nokargo" at Kunstverein Jesteburg. Recently, he has been living in neighboring Wendland. Together with artist Chenxi Zhong, he founded Kunstraum Tangente there, a venue for art exhibitions, concerts and symposia.

The exhibition can be seen from 08.04. to 12.06.2022 in the Kunsthaus Salzwedel daily, except Mondays, from 14 - 17 o'clock. On Saturday, April 09 and Saturday, April 23 at 3 p.m. each, Camillo Ritter will offer artist tours of the exhibition. He invites to the Artist-Talk with a guest artist on Saturday, 29.05. at 6 p.m. and on Sunday, 12.06.2022 at 3 p.m. to the Finissage.

>>> Kunst in der Altmark. Anders sehen: Extended until 30.01.2022

>>> Kunst in der Altmark. Anders sehen, An exhibition project of the Magdeburg-Stendal University in the Kunsthaus Salzwedel [ 01.10.2021 - 09.01.2022, extended until 30.01.2022 ] and afterwards in the Landesvertretung Sachsen-Anhalt, Berlin

Beyond the metropolises, a lively art scene with very different styles has developed in the Altmark region in northern Saxony-Anhalt, and with Kunsthof Dahrenstedt, Künstlerstadt Kalbe, Kunsthaus Salzwedel and the Wagen & Winnen art festival, there are no less than four initiatives that are known far beyond the region. The starting point for the exhibition "Art in the Altmark. Seeing Differently" is a two-year research project of the Magdeburg-Stendal University of Applied Sciences. Since spring 2018, artists who live and work in the Altmark region have been interviewed about their paths into art and their understanding of art. In parallel, work research took place and photographs and videos were taken. In the exhibition spaces of the Kunsthaus Salzwedel and therein presented 17 visual artists, two perspectives are interwoven with each other to implement the chosen subtitle "Seeing Differently". To open up new perspectives and to break with visual habits is intrinsic to art and is a motif of artistic practice - the works exhibited in the exhibition convey this claim. But it is also a matter of taking a look "behind the works" and of "seeing" the artists "differently" and also getting "close" to them. Textual, acoustic and visual collages and installations as well as virtual studio visits realized in 3D run through the exhibition as prepared presentations from the interview project in order to provide insights into the art business and make it possible to experience the artistic creative process. The book accompanying the exhibition, "Kunst in der Altmark . Anders Sehen - 17 artists in conversation" was published in April. Participating artists:
