(businesspress24) - The renowned gallery BWA in Lubin is the art center of concretism in Poland. With the exhibition “Minimum-Maximum” the gallery director Andrzej Bielawsk wants to demonstrate that the genre of minimal art by far has has not come to an end but that the art of “achieving a lot with little” still enjoys great popularity among visual arts. In the exhibition, opened on the 21st of May, the famous Polish artists of the respective genre Miroslaw Balka, Andrzej Bielawski and Ewa Zawadzka- Rykala are represented amongst others. Kurt Fleckenstein, the action- and installation artist who is living in Mannheim and Wroclaw is also participating. This time he presents his concrete / geometric side. In his art piece, a 10 m² chessboard, the black and red instead of black and white squares consit of blood and crude oil. Through the title “Game of the Kings – materials: blood and crude oil” he responds in a creative minimalistic way to international martial conflicts about crude oil.

With this work Fleckenstein makes the grade of the exhibition management in a special way. “Reducing and highlighting the explicit shape, in which everything is left out that is not necessary for the being of art. Concentration on what is essential for art in order to point out the inside and make its soul appear.”
