Ash Keating (*1980 in Melbourne/Australia, lives there) has made an international name for himself with spectacular paintings of entire buildings and huge walls. As a child, he flew with his grandmother in a small plane over the endless scenic expanse of Australia. The intense colours between sky and earth have left a lasting impression on him. The energetic colourfulness of his painting, with its fluid, vertical gradients, reveals an almost transcendent longing.
In a public, performative action shortly before the Badenfahrt, Ash Keating transformes the caretaker's house in the Langmatt park, which had been somewhat neglected throughout its life, into a huge three-dimensional painting. In the last months of its existence, the Haus Germann blossoms with unexpected freshness and colourfulness before it must make way for the construction of a glass, multifunctional pavilion. The Langmatt once again presents itself as a special place for bold painting. The exhibition is complemented by new paintings in the park and in the museum rooms, providing a differentiated insight into the artist's work.
A publication with exhibition views and a text by Markus Stegmann will accompany the exhibition (German/English).
