"An Inner Place" at ruruHaus documenta fifteen

Solo Show at ruruHaus documenta fifteen, Kassel
02.08.2022 - 10.09.2022

From 2 August to 10 September 2022, the project "An Inner Place" by Jan-Hendrik Pelz will be exhibited in the ruruHaus documenta fifteen in Kassel. For "An Inner Place", Jan-Hendrik Pelz portrayed people who were forced to flee as a result of war or terror.

The individual oil paintings are joined together to form life-size picture objects, thus opening up the step from the surface into the space and thus, with the means of painting, arrive at a more comprehensive view of the people portrayed.

In cooperation with reception centres and facilities for refugees, the artist and over forty refugees worked together. "An Inner Place" shows the people who have arrived here and become part of our society and culture. The encounter with the painted people is also an invitation to engage with them. The people depicted appear relaxed, introverted and keep their eyes closed, creating a calm, concentrated atmosphere. "An Inner Place" refers to an inner space described in interviews, which harbours memories, longings and hopes and can also be used as a place of strength and retreat. In addition to the meaning of their actions, it also remains open what brought the portrayed together and what connects them.

Pelz himself comes from a family in which one parent came to Germany as an immigrant from Eastern Europe. The question of what influence flight and expulsion has on the individual, as well as over generations, has occupied the artist in his work for a long time.

From 17.06 to 09.07.2022, Jan-Hendrik Pelz is showing a large solo exhibition "An Inner Place (4)" at the City Point in Kassel. The exhibition is part of the parallel programme during documenta 15 in Kassel.

In cooperation with refugees from the initial reception centre for refugees (LEA) in Ellwangen, as well as people from Stuttgart and Kassel (Germany), a collaboration between the artist and over forty people who had fled to Germany took place. After establishing contact, the selected participants were painted and the resulting canvases were assembled into sculpture objects. The individual figures of the work "Square" were rendered in realistic oil painting and life-size and were made of six painted canvases each. The people involved were not only represented through the possibilities of oil painting, but in a second step were also reproduced three-dimensionally as sitters. The arrangement of the paintings created images of seated persons, whereby the apparent plasticity of the figures dissolves on closer inspection.
