Coinciding with the opening of AØH Consultancy Finchley Road Gallery, the first exhibition titled What Do We Need Art For? Between Austria and the United Kingdom is opening on Friday, 12th of November from 4.00 until 7.00 p.m. and invited four visual artist, a musician & a gallerist producing multiple art
Niki Passath, Elizabeth Pfniess from Austria and Reiner Langer based in Germany, Rob Ritchie from Scottland as well as British musician RCH, invited Curator of the Music & Film Programm and James Pidcock, Curator & Head of Grey Art Multiples, Paris, France.
The exhibition tackles an important topic as denoted in its title and often reflected upon and is inspired by the book with the same title documenting Jean-Luc Nancy’s lecture at State Academy for Fine Arts in Karlsruhe haven taken place in the series Riemschneider Lectures published by State Academy of Fine Arts, Karlsruhe and Walther & Franz Koenig Books.
Why do we need art? Is it bringing us joy alone or simply distraction when engaging in art previews and parties, that are inherent or do we need it to feel more at home? When I travel, the first thing I do is put up art in my hotel room.
The above-mentioned book, documenting a talk by Jean-Luc Nancy came into my book collection, when wandering around Frieze Art Fair in Regents Park just recently and was ready for a break, deciding to get a book, fitting into my handbag to read over lunch.
This was the ultimate necessity I had at this moment and I purchased two books at my favourite book store Walther Koenig Books at the artfair.
In my role as a Wealth Adviser for Art, I hear all sorts of requests from: It should fit on a wall of three metres by two or have a certain colour. For me these wishes are not unusual and I understand that clients have their own approach to what they want.
Some might say, that clients with requirements like these, are not worthy to be followed up on, but I see it differently.
In the framework of the exhibitions a music programme for my Visiting AØH Balcony Series is created and the musician RCH has been invited to curate this part of the gallery programme. It is planned to take place regularly once a month or bi-monthly.
The art space AØH Consultancy Finchley Road Gallery is non-for-profit and is located in Finchley Road, London, United Kingdom.
Looking forward to hearing from you and all my best,
