Um-Fremdung: New exhibition at the KleppArt

 |  CampusNewsTextil

The exhibition "Um-Fremdung" by Christian Nachtigäller will take place from 27 August to 28 October at KleppArt, Rooms for Textiles and Culture at Paderborn University. Those interested can view the exhibition on Wednesdays from 4 to 6 p.m and Saturdays from 11 am to 1 p.m.

Christian Nachtigäller was born in Münster (Westphalia) in 1968 and returned there after several moves to complete an apprenticeship as an interior decorator and study architecture at Münster University of Applied Sciences from 1992. While still a student, Nachtigäller set up his own business as a restorer and has been focusing on his art since the mid-1990s. In addition to his own workshop, he has been running the textile workshop of the Münster School of Design at Münster University of Applied Sciences for almost 13 years and occasionally realises art events and participates in exhibitions. Nachtigäller also works as an author and has already published several books.

Nachtigäller's works mainly comprise everyday objects to which new functions or contexts are assigned so that they are placed in unknown contexts of meaning. In doing so, they are given new dimensions with a high recognition value. Nachtigäller ironises the function of everyday objects and stages them in a bizarre, bizarre or morbid way, but just as meaningful and rich in content.

The vernissage will take place on 26 August as part of the Paderborn Museum Night at 7 p.m. You are cordially invited to attend. After a welcome by Peter Kaiser, Peter Kaiser, artistic assistant to Prof. Alexandra Kürtz in Textiles at Paderborn University, Christian Nachtigäller will give an introduction to his work as well as "word samples" at 8 and 9 p.m. Further dates for readings will follow.
