27. February 2021 Peter Koch

Peter Koch kommt ursprünglich von der Ostsee und lebt seit über 30 Jahren als freischaffender Künstler in Dresden. Dabei bewegt er sich sehr virtuos zwischen Malerei und Musik. Er genießt jeden Moment, in welchem er in der Kreativität seinen Gefühlen Ausdruck verleihen kann.
Während seines Studium baute er Kontakt zu einigen namhaften Künstlern der DDR wie Dieter Weidenbach, Horst Peter Meyer und Joachim Kuhlmann auf, um von ihnen zu lernen. Dabei konzentrierte er sich auf maritime Impressionen und Momente des dörflichen Lebens.
Peter Koch liebt die Ästhetik, lebt und arbeitet gern aus dem Bauch heraus und entwickelte in den letzten Jahren einen Hang zum Experimentellen.

28. januar 2021 INGO R

Wer die Neustadt und das Hecht kennt, kennt auch Ingo R. Tanzend, diskutierend, rauchend, unermüdlich. Die Künstlerin ist der wohl aufregendste Import, den der Schwarzwald zu bieten hatte und bereichert das Viertel mit Szene. Ein Besuch in ihrem Atelier und Zuhause.
In Ingos Reich riecht es nach Rauch und Rauchwerk, keine glatte Wand lässt das Auge ruhen. Aus allen Winkeln blicken Gesichter, Geister, Damönen. Person und Kunst Ingo R sind nicht voneinander zu trennen. Der Tisch trägt Pinselstriche, der Kachelofen ist eine kleine Galerie, das Schlafzimmer ein Lager. Auf die Frage, wie sie zur Kunst kam, schaut Ingo wie der Baum, den man fragt, warum er Wurzeln hat. Fotografie, Bildhauerei, Malerei – „Das ist alles in mir drin. Ich habe mit Kunst zu tun, seit ich lebe.“ Wenn ‚etwas raus will‘, steht Ingo zehn Stunden an der Staffelei, ohne Unterbrechung. Man glaubt es, in Anbetracht ihrer sehnigen Arme, des knopfäugigen festen Blicks und des starken Willens. Ihre Hände sind glatt, mit filigranen Fingern, wie die eines jungen Mädchens. Ihre Stimme ein rauer Blues.
Ingo kam vor 24 Jahren nach Dresden. Dresden ist eine Station nach vielen: in den 70ern bereiste sie allein die Türkei und Nordafrika, es folgten 15 Jahre Zürich, acht Jahre Philadelphia, dann Paris. Immer lebte sie in Künstlergruppen, tauschte sich aus, inhalierte die andere Kultur. „Ich kenne Leute aus der ganzen Welt. Ich kann mich überall bewegen.“ Lange arbeitete sie in der Kunsttherapie: im Hospiz, im Entzug, mit Jugendlichen. „Die arbeiteten teilweise komisch“, sagt sie nachdenklich und meint damit die Einrichtungen. „Mit Zuckerbrot und Peitsche.“ Sie selbst redete Tacheles mit den Jugendlichen, stellte ihre Regeln auf, gab eine extra Ration Zigaretten, lud ‚zum Auskotzen‘ in ihr Atelier ein und hörte zu. Nach dreißig Jahren wollte sie ihr eigenen Ding machen.
„Dresden ist mein Zuhause geworden. Hier lernst du Kulturschaffende aus der ganzen Welt kennen“, sagt Ingo, zieht ihren Lippenstift nach und tupft das überschüssige Rot mit einem Tüchlein fort. „Klar, es ist schon Hardcore, was hier abgeht. Aber ich bin zuversichtlich.“ Ihre Vision für die Zukunft? „Deutschland nazifrei.“ Ingo R lebt und arbeitet weiter, mit viel natürlicher Neugier, selbstverständlichem Humanismus und einem wilden Herzen, so rot und frisch wie ihr Lippenstift.

05. December 2020 corona Moon exhibition

By Ljuben Stoev (*1939 – †2016) – Sofia / Bulgarien

Social outsiders and the living conditions of the people in his home country Bulgaria, clearly define the artistic work of the painter and graphic artist Ljuben Stoev. Trained at the Universities of Fine Arts in Sofia and Dresden, he developed an individual, ironic and humorous aesthetic style to approach critical social topics. He skilfully combines his own graphic and painterly works with objects from everyday life, whilst presents to the viewer a visual depiction of the theatre of the absurd. The artist moves virtuously between the techniques of collage and installation.

On the other hand, there is Ljuben Stoev’s early work, which, among other things, deals thematically with impressions of the countries he visited. Travelling on Bulgarian cargo ships during the 1970s, he describes his unique impressions through woodcuts and ink drawings.  Based stylistically still on the realism of the 20s, he is already developing his own form of expressionism, which permeates the entire life of this versatile artist.

As a point of reference for the Bulgarian art scene, Ljuben Stoev, was represented in numerous exhibitions in his home country and abroad. His work is divided into thematic cycles, some of which are shown in Dresden for the first time this autumn. ‘Dreimal um die Welt’ Grafik und Malerei was presented in Weltclub and now in parallel to the exhibitions in Städtische Galerie Dresden ‘Und die im Dunkeln sieht man nicht’, Jugend- & Kulturprojekt e.V. is pleased to present important parts of the impressive work of this Bulgarian artist in the Full Moon Gallery.

31. October 2020 MASKARADE

by Enas Arabi

We all put on masks in our daily lives to present ourselves in a form that is convenient for us. We show a picture of ourselves, behind which joy and contentment but also fear, sadness or insecurity are hidden. According to an ancient Syrian legend, there is a magic box inside us, in which our experiences from the past are collected and with its help we decide which mask suits better to a certain moment. To be able to look behind the mask, we need a key for the magic box. However, many people do not know the right key for their magic box and therefore cannot share their true selves with others. Among these dozen keys we have for the magic box, we have to find the right one that will free us from the mask

01. October 2020 Harvest Moon

by Ana Pireva

There’s hardly any better way to welcome October to the Full Moon Gallery of JKPeV than the opening of the artist Ana Pireva’s ′′ Harvest Moon ′′ exhibition! And what a huge success! More than 70 visitors used the clear full moon night and the radiant harvest moon to admire a series of watercolors and ink drawings by the Bulgarian artist currently studying at HfBK Dresden.
Jugend-& Kulturprojekt e.V. is proud to artfully illuminate Ana’s works in the full moon gallery areas. Folkloristic references from Bulgarian traditions, the gathering of spirits mixed with still vibrant legends and myths, fascinated and inspired many visitors who also had the opportunity to share their thoughts and feelings with the artist.

o2. September 2020 Vielleicht Gestern

by Angel Vasilev

On the 2nd of September, the Full Moon Gallery opened its windows to the local artist Angel Vasiliev who presented his exhibition “Vielleicht Gestern”. The artist explained that the name “Vielleicht Gestern” or “Maybe yesterday” is a funny reminder to himself not to leave the work for tomorrow and be productive artistically in the here and now – the best time for that having been already yesterday. At the exhibition of the Full Moon Gallery Angel presented six artworks that were inspired by two years of traveling.

03. August 2020 facebook

by Jakyeong

 

On the 3rd of August at 21:00, the Full Moon Gallery opens its windows first time on Hechtstr. 17 in Hechtviertel with the new exhibition Facebook by the artist, Jakyeong.  Jakyeong has been an observer of different people’s lives on the streets, through newspapers, flyers and commercials.  People might not look so familiar to the foreigner’s eyes and sometimes they can even seem bizarre.

Jakyeong’s daily habit inspired her to present this experience in the art by combining different characters and colors into the twisted theme mixing western-style motives and Korean folk art. Currently, her favourite character is the tiger, which has been strongly associated with the Korean folk art. As a self-taught painter, her works probably are not fully in line with academic rules but she feels free to apply divers’ materials and skills to her works.

Jakyeong has lived in Bern, Switzerland and in Bologna, Italy. Currently she lives in Dresden. Exhibitions of Jakyeong took place in July 2018 at Luda Gallery in Seoul and in July 2019 in a private space in Zirtow.
