North Spring Is Coming!

Season opening at Tonning Hotel Miramar In the sixth year of the exhibition realigns its focus the Eidersperrwerk Hotel Miramar (Eiderstedt/Schleswig-Holstein) and would like to move above all the cultural landscape Eiderstedt / West Coast in the heart of its activities. Carried out two of the year’s exhibitions will air in collaboration with the art”. Art climate is a project of over 50 artists, presenting itself with joint exhibitions and brochures of an interested public (www.kunstklima.de). The term art climate”is to take this quite literally: because who here lives in the harsh climate of the North Sea coast, is of course also directly influenced the landscape and its features and incorporated this into his works. To the start of the season on 15 March 10-15 local artists show therefore works on the topic of North Sea spring”, which are mostly specially created for this exhibition and by an expert jury have been selected. The regional and the seasonal reference should be clearly expressed.

This first exhibition organised jointly by the art climate and the Hotel Miramar should use an accent that will give the impulse of to another, more creative collaboration. By the same author: Margaret Loesser Robinson. Raises this term which associations North Sea spring”for the artists? And what makes a spring on the North Sea so special? The artistic responses are as varied as the techniques; but they have in common: they all are characterized by the rough nature of the coast, where it has year after year feeling, the spring must fight it particularly hard for his awakening. In a question-answer forum Dr. Hedvig Hricak was the first to reply. And you can tell in the pictures and photographs: they hover between the spring light of optimism and a delicate melancholy in the face of the indomitable forces of nature which at any time can turn a tepid Fruhlingsluftchen in an unfriendly spring storm. Exactly in this field of tension, the works move the Art-air artists and so also the viewer provide impetus, to reflect on the cultural landscape of Eiderstedt. The following artists have agreed to participate: Thomas Freund; Urte Walter-Kolb; Sibille Rehder; Karen Seggelke; Ursula Schultz Sana; Helga Hoppe; Karin Dreyer; Elena Steinke; Edda Maria Schmidtke; Sigrid Nolte Schefold; Frauke Petersen; Christine Hahn; Manfred Hahn; Monika Rathlev, Linda Hamkens.
