"Fremde Wesen" [Alien Beings] exhibition on display at Kunstverein Kirchzarten

Caution, biohazard! Without compromising your health, you may visit "Fremde Wesen" [Alien Beings], an exhibition running at Kunstverein Kirchzarten art society from 23 June to 21 July 2019.

They are everywhere, living with us and in us. Invisible to the naked eye, they may be either useful or dangerous to us as their hosts. They are active without our help, facilitating, or robbing us of, our lives.

What we are talking about here are microorganisms, those tiny, primordial life forms with whom we live in symbiosis – whether we want to or not.

Ottmar Hörl has dedicated a new series of works to these ambivalent organisms, depicting their strange beauty in an imaginative manner. The artist relies on the principle of "parasitism": creativity. For this is where the organisms that enable life are akin to art: both are creative. As the quiet life of these "alien beings" remains hidden from the observer's eye, Hörl has illustrated it by resorting to the fantastic. Born from imagination, bizarre beings with tentacles have been put on paper, scaled up to a certain degree, shown as single specimens, and inviting onlookers to study them (without any risk of infection).

The exhibition is on display at Kunstverein Kirchzarten art society between 23 June and 21 July 2019, open every Fri, Sat, Sun, from 5 p.m. to 7 p.m.
