Entries in heliumTALK (6)



Dear Friends of the gallery,

we are currently working on our new website (amongst other things), and as a little teaser before the site-re-launch in one to two weeks we present you the very first audio-podcast of "heliumTALK - Das Kunstgespräch"  (at the moment our podcasts are in german only, but we are already planning english interviews for the very near future!!).

[ g e r m a n ]

Vielleicht habt Ihr es schon mitbekommen: Wir arbeiten derzeit an unserer neuen Website, die unseren veränderten Ansatz erklärt und die in ein bis zwei Wochen online geht. Ein wichtiger Teil dieses neuen Konzeptes ist dabei auch die Erweiterung unserer Talkshow "heliumTALK - das Kunstgespräch" als reiner Audio-Podcast.

Wir sind natürlich ganz aufgeregt deswegen, und daher veröffentlichen wir vorab auch schonmal den ersten heliumTALK nur für die Ohren. Okay, es ist die Aufzeichnung der von TIDE produzierten Sendung mit Elmar Lause, aber im Intro erzählt Euch Jörg schonmal wohin die Reise gehen wird -  und der Talk mit Elmar ist ja immer noch aktuell und super interessant. Erste neue Shows produzieren wir natürlich auch schon in unserem kleinen neuen Podcast-Studio auf der Ranch. Bis dahin - hört mal rein:




PS: If you are in Hamburg and are interested in our portfolio of available work, please feel free to make an appointment at the gallery. Our showroom is full with great artwork, and even though some parts of our space are under construction, there is always a lot to see.

PPS: Also, FIRST. - our online-only exhibition is still live on our artsy-page: make sure to check it out!



heliumTALK #07: Jens Rausch | December 5

Jens Rausch at the opening of his solo exhibition "Experimentierfeld" at heliumcowboy, October 2017, flanked by the gallery team Melvin & Jörg Heikhaus.

On Tuesday, December 5 we host another edition of heliumTALK, the art talk TV show of Jannes Vahl from Clubkinder e.V. and Jörg Heikhaus.

Our guest will be Hamburg-based artist Jens Rausch. 

Jens works with experimental techniques and materials. He uses reduction and abstraction to create his own painterly language. Often referring to the digitization of our current modern world, his works comment on our disconnection with nature.

Doors open: 6 pm
heliumTALK starts: 7pm
Free entry

The show will be recorded for television by TIDE TV.
