We're ready to roll: After a week of installing and setting up shop at the Mercedes me Store, the #heliumcowboytakeover begins with the first exhibition of our month long program:
FRIDAY, DEC 5, 7-10 PM:
ADAMEVA - VERNISSAGE & LIVE CONCERT
Ballindamm 17, Hamburg (google maps | facebook event)
We're all set up and ready now, so please join us tomorrow (Friday) from 7 to 10 pm for the Vernissage of our first exhibition at the Mercedes me Store.
ADAMEVA, who are not only known for their large-format, explosive pop-art canvases created with tape and acrylics, but their music as well, will also release their very first record at this show. 'EKSTASE' will be published in a very limited edition on Vinyl only, and each record comes with individual and original cover art. ADAMEVA will also give a short concert featuring some of their Electropop songs that night.
Interested in a sales preview? Let us know at firstname.lastname@example.org!
We've also been setting up the '#heliumcowboytakeover Gift Shop', which will be a permanent installation throughout December with art editions, original works, books and other shiny things to buy.
The 'Gift Shop' is located next to the emergency exit (true fact), and will be open during the regular hours of the Mercedes me Store (monday - saturdays 10 am - 8 pm).
Address: Mercedes me Store, Ballindamm 17, Hamburg.
heliumcowboy Founder Jörg Heikhaus (image right) was invited to be the host at the store for the month of December, and under the programmatic title #heliumcowboytakeover he's put together a program of live-art performances and exhibitions as well as panel discussions and artists talks.
And here it is: ADAMEVA released their debut video, EKSTASE feat. Samy Deluxe.
On December 5th they will publish this song as their first ever single, on the evening of the opening of their exhibition at the Mercedes me Store in Hamburg, where they will give a short live gig. This exhibition will be curated by heliumcowboy during Jörg's month as the host of this brand new Mercedes flagship store. Stay tuned and check for updates here.
It's about time we are closing up this year ... it was a rush and a kick, once again, it was tough and beautiful and just another rollercoaster ride, and everyone here at the Ranch and affiliated with us deserves a time out for the holiday season ...
We'll be at the gallery until Friday, Dec 21st, and after that only occasional and by appointment, if you are interested in seeing some of the artwork we are showing right now at PSYCHONOISEDESIRE, or hold on to in our storage. Drop us a mail!
And most importantly: Enjoy your Christmas!
this is our last and final event this year: Saturday, December 15, from 1 - 7 pm, we'll invite you to the Finissage of our current exhibition PSYCHONOISEDESIRE, featuring 3 more or less individual shows with new work by Jo Fischer (PSYCHO), ADAMEVA (NOISE) and Alex Diamond (DESIRE).
Over the past 10 years, it has been our custom here at heliumcowboy to invite you all over for some complimentary Glühwein & Cookies before Christmas. So if you are in town, and want to see the exhibition one last time in its complete state, or just want to grab a last drink with us before leaving for your well deserved holiday celebrations, drop by on Saturday!
Looking forward to seeing y'all there!
On November 24, starting at 8 p.m., we will open our last exhibition in 2012: PSYCHONOISEDESIRE presents new artwork by ADAMEVA, Jo Fischer and Alex Diamond.
For this show we will divide our space in three areas for solo-presentations of these artists, each going their very own individual way of presenting their latest work:
Enter a very unique Psychobilly-Club, created by Jo Fischer as framework for his new photographic project about the european Psychobilly-scene ('PSYCHO'). Take a trip into the powerful, explosive, and pop-noisy world of Mary & Larissa, the artist duo known as ADAMEVA ('NOISE'). And be part of the sublime premiere of the newest 'Photo Drawings' by Alex Diamond in a very classy, reduced and elegant "white cube"-style gallery setting ('DESIRE').
