My protagonists

In this exhibition, the Peruvian-German artist Barbara Ilse shows four different series of her work: Protagonista, Enlunada, Naylamp and BEEings. All of them are related to an intensive, autobiographical exploration of the (Women-)Self and socio-cultural reality. 

In her work you may find symbols of fecundity, feminine life, cross-fertility and co-living. Vivid traces and colorful surfaces overlap and expose subtle protagonists of our cosmos. They tell stories about identity, environment and culture. 

Born and raised in Lima, Peru in 1985, Barbara Ilse Petzold Horna began her artistic pursuit since an early age from childhood onwards. In 2004 she moved to Germany in order to study at the University of Bonn and graduated with an M.A. in 2011 in Cultural Anthropology, Political Science and Hispano-American Philology. Since then, Barbara has continually been evolving as a plastic artist, anthropologist and teacher. She conceived the concept “ARThopology" which connects cultures and the plastic arts, revaluing the interdependencies and tensions between origins, disciplines, spaces and bodies as something nurturing and enriching.

Barbara Petzold Horna has exposed her artistic work in different galleries and cultural spaces, including the Imhoff chocolate museum in Cologne, one of the most visited museums in Germany. In addition, she worked as a teacher at the University of Bonn, and offers various workshops as well as she is developing cultural and curatorial projects. She currently resides in Utrecht, Netherlands.

BEE-INGS

Vernissage: Saturday, 19th may 2018 – 15:00
Participative action with children and adults: Sunday, 27th may 2018 - 14:00

In the exhibition “BEE-ings”, the Peruvian-German artist Barbara Ilse shows bees and other more abstract beings related to fertility and life cycles. Bees are more than essential for our food supply. Besides pollinating and germinating the fruits and plants we consume – one third of our food depends on their work–, they are a symbol of fecundity, flowing and feminine life. The abstract paintings embrace the figurative ones as imaginative partners of life, cross-fertility and co-living. Vivid traces and colorful surfaces overlap and expose subtle protagonists of our cosmos. 
Through their presentation, the artist creates awareness about the current critical situation of bees, environment and food, due to our consumption routine, as well as about our inner life and fantasies in relation to the environment.
Barbara Ilse Petzold Horna is artist, anthropologist, Peruvian, German, migrant, woman and mother. She conceives interdependencies and tensions between origins, disciplines, spaces and bodies as something nurturing and enriching. 
She has exposed her artistic work in different galleries and cultural spaces, including the Imhoff chocolate museum in Cologne, one of the most visited museums in Germany. Currently she is living in the Netherlands and looking forward to share her artistic work in diverse places.

Te zien in Griftsteede, van Swindenstraat 129 te Utrecht.

Opening tentoonstelling zaterdag 19 mei, 15.00 uur.

Te zien t/m zondag 24 juni 2018.


In de tentoonstelling “BEE-ings” laat de Peruaans-Duitse kunstenaar Barbara Ilse Petzold Horna zien hoe bijen en andere, meer abstracte wezens zich verhouden tot vruchtbaarheid en levenscycli. 

Bijen zijn meer dan belangrijk voor ons voedsel. Naast het bestuiven van de vruchten en planten die we eten – een derde van ons voedsel is afhankelijk van hun werk - , staan zij symbool voor vruchtbaarheid, vrijheid en vrouwelijkheid. 

De abstracte schilderijen omhelzen het samenleven, de kruisbestuiving en de figuratieve motieven als symbool voor denkbeeldige levenspartners. 

Levendige sporen en kleurrijke oppervlaktes overlappen en laten subtiele hoofdrolspelers van onze kosmos zien.

Door deze presentatie creëert de kunstenaar bewustzijn over de huidige kritische situatie van de bijen, milieu en voedsel ten gevolge van zowel onze consumptie patronen als ook over ons innerlijk leven en fantasieën in relatie tot het milieu.  

Barbara Ilse is artist, antropoloog, Peruaans, Duits, een migrant, vrouw en moeder. Ze denkt dat deze samenhangende identiteiten soms spanningen creëren tussen herkomst, disciplines, tijden en lichamen, die juist stimulerend zijn voor de rijping en bloei van nieuwe inzichten.

Ze heeft haar kunstwerk tentoongesteld in verschillende galerieën en culturele ruimtes, waaronder de Imhoff Chocolate Museum in Keulen, een van de meest bezochte musea van Duitsland. Ze leeft nu in Nederland en verheugd zich al om haar kunstwerken te delen op verschillende locaties.

SCHWEBEZUSTÄNDE

In ihrer Ausstellung mit dem Titel „Schwebezustände“ zeigt die deutsch-peruanische Malerin Barbara Ilse Petzold Horna Körper, die sich in Leichtigkeit mit ihren Elementen vereinen. Flächen und Farben überlagern sich und schaffen dadurch eine ungeahnte Räumlichkeit. Während die Acrylmalereien sich den schwebenden Bewegungen femininer Figuren widmen, befasst sie sich in den Tuschezeichnungen auf abstrakt-figurative Weise mit Formen und Rhythmen.
Die Künstlerin verfolgt ein besonderes kulturanthropologisches Experiment in ihrer Arbeit. Wie wirkt sich der Monatszyklus auf die Wahrnehmung der Weiblichkeit aus? Dieser Frage geht Barbara Ilse Petzold Horna nach, indem sie sich in ihrem eigenen Rhythmus in einen Schwebezustand zu versetzen scheint, um aus der eigenen Perspektive Verhandlungen vom Weiblichen auf die Leinwand zu übertragen.
