Exhibition Highlights and Art Events
Peter von Kant is very pleased to announce ‘Cracked actor,’ the first UK solo show by Australian artist Jonny Niesche. ‘Cracked Actor’ is a musical piece written by David Bowie, the fifth track of the 1973 ‘Aladdin Sane’ album, written and composed in 1972 – also the birthday of Jonny Niesche. With an oscillating constellation between detailed iridescent and colourful glam rock and politically engaged art rock, the latter with its focus upon rhythm, repetition, and the avant-garde, this piece describes the decline of an aged ex film star reduced to paying for sexual performances behind the scenes of Hollywood.
Exhibition dates: 22 January 2016 – 5th March 2016
Drawing on Itten’s treatise, The Elements of Colour, Rook & Raven bring together the works of Marita Fraser and Nancy Milner. Through sculpture, collage and paintings, these two artists explore Itten’s theories in their juxtaposition of colour and its perceptual contrasts. Fraser’s work deploys a means of rehearsal within its making, hybrid forms of materials, modern draperies, displayed in variegated configurations. Materials are often seen in multiple manifestations, on consecutive occasions, reissued, reattributed and renegotiated.
3 Branches of the Same Tree
3 Branches of the Same Tree brings together theories and concepts of science, art and education and looks at the perception of the world as viewed through the lenses of science and art. Within this project, science and art have been fused to reveal the forces that govern our world and the possible new ways science can be taught.
Sally Smart: The Choreography of Cutting
Exhibition dates: 27 March - 25 April 2015
Smart has looked closely at dance choreography to see how it might connect to the collage methodologies in her practice: the movement of elements in space, improvisation and rehearsal, and how actions of cutting and assembling might be described and visualized in drawing.
Exhibition dates: 17-20 October 2014

Gallery: Neue Berliner Räume
Using a self-devised system, Sonja Hornung generates patterns for flags that have no historical basis. Instead, these new flags are formed – as much as possible – by chance. The artist uses emptied flags to scrutinize the mechanism at the heart of the process that anchors a flag to its symbolic meaning and its actual territory. These flags are then hoisted in a series of public interventions across the city of Berlin.
