clubkinder artist talk: The interview

In case you missed it: here's the full video from the clubkinder artist talk with heliumcowboy founder and artist Jörg Heikhaus aka Alex Diamond, which was held on January 22 at our gallery. Jörg was interviewed by Jannes Vahl, founder of the social organisation clubkinder e.V., which supports social projects in Hamburg. Jörg donated one of his trademark Alex Diamond-photodrawings (see here), which was auctioned for the benefit of Sport ohne Grenzen e.V., a youth basketball project in Hamburg-Wilhelmsburg.

The artist talk is a new program at heliumcowboy. Together with clubkinder e.V. and TIDE TV, we will hold regular artist talks at our space that are beeing screened on TV and streamed online.

clubkinder Artist Talk: Alex Diamond on January, 22 | 7 pm

Alex Diamond: Fuck I Am Talking About My Feelings Here, 2015

We cordially invite you to the second clubkinder Artist Talk at heliumcowboy on January, 22 | 7 pm. This time Hamburg based artist Jörg Heikhaus aka Alex Diamond will talk about himself and his artwork. As a kind of veteran of the Hamburg art scene, he will share his oberservations and assessments of the current situation of art and the art market in Hamburg. And hopefully it will lead this evening to insightful discourses. 

The Artist Talk will be hosted again by the clubkinder co-founder Jannes Vahl and Frida Mindt, Gallery Director of heliumcowboy. 

Alex Diamond was initiated as a stand-alone art project by Jörg Heikhaus in 2004. Although it has outlived its original intent, it has become his stage name as an artist.

Essentially being a determined and straightforward storyteller, most of his artwork can be seen as an exploration of contemporary culture and its recurring social recognition patterns, with strong references to popular content and aesthetics.

Known for skillfully employing a vast variety of different techniques and crafts over the years, the majority of his oeuvre today consists of his distinctive trademark woodwork: multi-layered, meticulously and highly detailed sculptural woodcuts, blended with diverse painting and pigmenting styles.

Jörg has been an artist since 1987. He founded the heliumcowboy gallery in 2002 and worked as a curator for large art projects. Today he spends most of his time creating his complex woodwork or rare and intricate drawings and is only excecuting a representational and consulting role within the heliumcowboy organization.

About clubkinder:

The non-profit association clubkinder is an important institution for Hamburg. 
They raise funds for social projects and they do it in their own way and with what they do best : culture and media.
