Alex Diamond designs 'Geberit Water Lounge' for Stefan Marquard's new Restaurant Hase+Igel

Earlier this year Alex Diamond has been invited by celebrity chef Stefan Marquard and by Geberit, the european market leader in sanitary technology, to develop and execute an artistic concept for the luxurious bathroom facilities of Marquard's new restaurant called 'Hase & Igel'.

The restrooms are equipped with Aqua Clean shower toilets and beautiful, high-end luxury modules by Geberit (called 'Monolith'), which Alex Diamond included in his artwork, using silkscreen printing on the glass parts. The entry and hallway in front of the bathrooms underwent a massive paint job, and now the whole environment is called the 'Geberit Water Lounge' - and it is absolutely not your average restroom anymore ...
Same with the restaurant: 'Hase + Igel' is definitely a very different culinary and aesthetic experience, Stefan Marquard and his whole crew certainly know the meaning of Punk, and are living the Rock'n Roll life, be it in or out of the kitchen.

Writing for zeit.de: About Laurence Vallieres at Knotenpunkt 14

Our gallery founder Jörg Heikhaus is an author for the Hamburg-blog of Germany's biggest weekly newspaper DIE ZEIT. He writes mostly about art, obviously. In german. 

His latest article just launched today:

Laurence Vallieres: Lasst die Eisbären in Ruhe!

Bildhauer, die im Großformat arbeiten, haben es nicht leicht. Ihre Arbeiten sind schwer zu transportieren und zu lagern. Daher finden sie seltener Ausstellungsmöglichkeiten als Maler oder Fotografen, die sogenannte Flachware produzieren. Laurence Vallières, Skulpturen-Künstlerin aus Montreal, zeigt jetzt auf dem Knotenpunkt-Festival, wie man diese Schwierigkeit umgehen kann: Sie arbeitet mit Karton, mit verhältnismäßig leichtem Material also. Und sie erschafft ihre Skulpturen direkt im Ausstellungsraum. (...)

His latest article just launched today:

Heiko Müller: Pop-Surrealismus und Low Brow für Hamburg

Die Galerie Feinkunst Krüger und der Künstler Heiko Müller sind bereits seit über zehn Jahren eng miteinander verbunden. Müller hat in dieser Zeit nicht nur an zahlreichen Gruppenausstellungen der legendären Hamburger Galerie teilgenommen, sondern auch gemeinsam mit dem Galeristen Ralf Krüger eine eigene Ausstellungsreihe geschaffen: die seit 2006 jährlich stattfindende  “Don’t Wake Daddy”-Show. 

Die beiden holen hierfür die besten europäischen und amerikanischen Künstler der Stilrichtungen Pop-Surrealismus und Lowbrow nach Hamburg. Fast unvorstellbar, dass es angesichts dieser engen Zusammenarbeit erst jetzt zur ersten Einzelausstellung von Heiko Müller bei Feinkunst Krüger kommt: Am 6. September eröffnet er hier seine Schau Glades. (...)
