Young Man Blues

The first exhibition in our new location shows work of Mekhitar Garabedian (Syria/Belgium) and Susanne Kriemann (Germany), two artists that have a particular interest for the relations between history, identity, time and the memory of a place.

The work of Mekhitar Garabedian (°1977, Allepo, Syria) can be approached as a constant digging up of his personal and complex identity as an immigrant.
Garabedian was born in Syria, but has Armenian roots: his grandparents fled from the Armenian genocide. In 1981 the family immigrated once again because of the Libanon civil war. Since his childhood Garabedian lives in Belgium. The artist works with different media such as sound, text, video, installation and photography. His work deals with the idea that history and cultural identity are constructed trough conditioning. The exhibition Young Man Blues at KIOSK shows an ensemble of textual works, a photographic project in the shape of a publication and an installation with t-shirts on which a reference to the Armenian culture is printed.

The exhibition is realised with the kind contribution of Hoet Bekaert Gallery.

Ashes and Broken Brickwork of a Logical Theory

The first exhibition in our new location shows work of Susanne Kriemann (Germany) and Mekhitar Garabedian (Syria/Belgium), two artists that have a particular interest for the relations between history, identity, time and the memory of a place.

The work of Susanne Kriemann (°1972, Erlangen, Germany) deals with the subject of research into the past of modern history. Kriemann is mainly using photography in which her own images and archive material are exhibited in the form of displays. Using an associative working method allows the artist to ‘dig towards the past’ and to disassociate ‘the idea of modernity’ from all ideological connotations and in this way analyze the writing of recent history as a formal system of organization. In Ashes and Broken Brickwork of a Logical Theory Kriemann mixes images from her own expedition to the desert of Syria, archaeological digging sites in Mesopotamia and the photographic archive of Agatha Christie. Besides being a writer Christie also was a photographer for the British government at digging sites on Syria and Iraq. On the occasion of this exhibition, an artist book will be published by Roma Publications.

The exhibition is a co-production of Künstlerhaus Stuttgart and KIOSK.
