As a curator I look for the unpredictable. The more unpredictable an
artists work, the longer it will hold the attention of an audience. I then
view the structure of the work from storytelling to material handling,
searching for surprises. It is my job to be open-minded and see each
new artwork with fresh eyes.
The artist Juliane Hundertmark often builds theatrical settings for her
paintings. Her unique language is consistently inventive, demonstrating
an almost industrial capacity to work through complex compositions
quickly and passionately.
Each new painting brings fresh characters and relates them to a social
theme. Some themes include vegetarianism, death, hostility and the
social conventions associated with artists and patrons of the artworld.
In the September 2022 New York edition of Spring Break, we
constructed an old parlour with lace fabric and stuffed figures. Within
this vintage interior Hundertmarks paintings were politically charged,,
relating the current war in Ukraine to 1930s Germany.
For Spring Break LA 2023, Hundertmark is presenting a lighter
aesthetic, addressing the more puzzling social concerns of those who
live in the Land of Plenty.
