Imagination Becomes Reality. Part I: Expanded Paint Tools
June 27 – September 24, 2005 | Goetz Collection

A multi-part exhibition cycle focusing on the interpretation of contemporary art

"Painting has always existed – and it doesn't seem logical to me to speak of a 'renaissance in painting' because artists have never stopped painting. I am personally interested in painting in its current connection with various media. With the exhibition cycle Imagination Becomes Reality, I want to reveal the influence of painting on all other artistic areas."
Ingvild Goetz

The exhibition Expanded Paint Tools includes works by Franz Ackermann, Mathilde ter Heijne, Tal R, Jörg Sasse and Thomas Scheibitz. It constitutes the start of the five-part exhibition cycle Imagination Becomes Reality. The series reflects collector Ingvild Goetz's continuous involvement with painting and shows the role that this medium plays in her collecting concept.

"It is interesting that many artists expand the medium of painting into sculpture, photography and video; that they 'paint' on other surfaces, as it were, while conversely, many painters often generate their imagery at the computer and then transfer it to the canvas," explains Ingvild Goetz.

In his work Mental-Maps, Franz Ackermann combines individual space and time experiences. These serve as a starting point for his large-format paintings such as Untitled (Evasion XIII – 5 Stars Tropical), 1977. In his work Princess, 2005, Tal R uses his canvas almost like a workbench by layering stratum upon stratum of visual worlds made of different materials. Thomas Scheibitz unites painting, sculpture, collage and photography in his works. He actively uses traditional subjects like still lifes, portraits and landscapes in order to question their relevance. From creating photographic still lifes, Jörg Sasse moved to computer-generated visual worlds. With works such as 8246, 2000, he represents a generation of younger artists who have exchanged the paintbrush for the computer mouse. Dutch artist Mathilde ter Heijne appears in southern Germany for the first time with four video- and sound-installations in BASE103 at Sammlung Goetz. In her film The invisible Hero, 2005, she uses computer manipulation to blur the boundaries of space and subject.
