Cuchifritos Gallery + Project Space is thrilled to present Some Great Modern Mediums, a solo exhibition of recent work by Frankfurt-based artist Tina Kohlmann. As in much of her practice, Kohlmann’s installation oscillates between real and mythical narratives, constructing a fictional ethnography composed of artifacts that transcend the boundaries between traditional handcraft, pop aesthetics, costume, spiritualism, art and science. Working across form, technique and media — hand woven rugs and rope masks, cultivated crystals grafted onto volcanic rock, skrimshaw on shell — Kohlmann’s work resembles a Renaissance wunderkammern merging antiquities, exotica, relics, as well as real and faked naturalia into a single alchemical phenomenon.
Presented as part of the Workspace 2015 series, featuring the work of LES Studio Program artists-in-residence, and in partnership with Residency Unlimited.
