"The Lobster Quadrille"

May 4 –  July 21, 2019

An exhibition for “Artist Meets Archive” and the Internationale Photoszene Köln (May 4 to July 21, 2019, in Rooms 3 and 4 – Opening: Sunday, May 5, 2 pm)Starting in May, a second, newly installed section of Roselyne Titaud’s exhibition will be on view in Room 3. In the context of “Artist Meets Archive,” a cooperative project with the Internationale Photoszene Köln festival, the artist was invited to engage with the archival holdings of Die Photographische Sammlung/SK Stiftung Kultur. Titaud was particularly intrigued by the “hidden treasures” she found, the byways of the collection, and decided to set them in an associative dialogue with her own works. She selected photographs by Herbert Bayer, Jim Dine, Ruth Hallensleben, Willi Moegle, and Anonymous. The diverse works all become part of a visual alphabet which, in the artist’s constellation, offers fresh perspectives and interpretations. “The Lobster Quadrille” is the name of a chapter in Lewis Carroll’s novel Alice in Wonderland in which various marine animals strike up a colorful round dance, changing partners to try out ever-new configurations – an open and dynamic system of references that serves as a fitting symbol for the exhibition concept.

In order to avert health risks from Covid-19 as far as possible, we have set up online ticketing for you. At www.sk-kultur.de you can book tickets for visiting the exhibition and taking part in the Sunday tours (3 p.m. each time). The number of visitors and participants is limited, we ask you to take the necessary infection protection measures (protective mask and minimum distance) into account. Thank you.
