Cornet of Horse

My journey of contemporary German art exploration continued today in Hamburg.  I visited Deichtorhallen Internationale Kunst, Kunstverein Hamburg and Kunsthaus Hamburg and attended some nice exhibitions, especially at the last two venues.  Henning Bohl's solo exhibition Cornet of Horse at the Kunstverein is what I like most.  Bohl explored different possibilities for generating picture motifs and how art could be presented and staged.  His architectural sensibility is what makes his works interesting.

Bohl at Kunstverein Hamburg, 2011:

In addition to his spatial installations, Bohl turned his canvasses into amplifiers for Sergei Tcherepnin's music by picking up the vibrations of the sound.  The result is some glitchy experimental electronic sound I have always loved.
