Apart from that, online art magazine Gallerytalk wrote a nice feature about us and #PEEK (in german).
Have a nice start of the week.
In the last two summers our man of the Leica - Jo Fischer - travelled with some of his buddies to the legendary french bike festival 'Wheels & Waves" in Biarritz. Armed with his camera, he portrayed the event with all of its characteristic people and drivers. The outcome of this documentary is his brand new photo book "Wheels & Waves", that he will personally release this Friday in Berlin at the Harry Damson Speed Shop and this Saturday in Hamburg at Vater & Sohn.
The book is available online here, and we will also have a few signed copies at the gallery.
Jo Fischer will be in attendance at available for book signings at both events.
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').
For more then two years photographer Jo Fischer is touring Germany with his project "Herr Fischer bittet zu Tisch". He invites people to take a seat at his table, arranging characteristic pictures of people within seconds - and with one shot only. Already more than 1.800 guests sat at the always same wooden table in front of plain backcloth. Since the beginning, the setting (table & background) has been arranged in more than 20 cities in Germany and Switzerland. This project is an ongoing process, and is planned to visit many other places and possibly countries in the future.
From housewifes to kids, rockers & burlesque dancers, blue- or white-collar workers: Everybody is invited to bring their own personality to the table. The results are a a cross section through society as portraits in black & white.
On April 28, 2012 "Herr Fischer bittet zu Tisch" was arranged at the Hamburger Deichtorhallen as part of the "Lange Nacht der Museen" ("Night of the Museums"), and while thousands of people visited this event, between 8 p.m. and midnight over 150 of them took the opportunity and sat down at Jo's table, getting their photo taken - and taking a printout with them right away.
faust&heisler accompanied Jo the whole day long, documenting a busy and crazy day in the life of "Herr Fischer bittet zu Tisch".
