Claire Morgan (1980*) makes her fantastical installations from translucent and weightless materials such as dandelion seeds, fruit flies or shredded plastic sheeting that are then strung onto fine nylon thread. Her extremely fragmented, sometimes large-scale works are preoccupied with the transience of life and the basic knowledge of the artist working ‘against time’, her futile effort to halt the onset of decay that simultaneously arises with the artistic process of creation. To thi …09.04.2014 // ADD article TO MY GOSEE // SHOW article

Using colour to create moods and specific painterly components are characteristic to Jessica Backhaus’ (*1970) work. The fleeting arrangements and lovingly composed colours of her fragile still life photography seem to reflect her feelings and inner states. But they do not only have a high recognition value because of their colourfulness. Jean Christophe Amman writes the following about her work: ‘Jessica Backhaus has a systematic view for the accidental, for things that are ‘j …04.03.2014 // ADD article TO MY GOSEE // SHOW article
Why should we always do everything ourselves – there are other competent people out there. Here’s looking at you Ben Kaufmann, new director of Neuen Aaachener Kunstverein art foundation, and friend of the House of GoSee. We’re sure you’ll remember his great Klaus Nomi exhibition, which we recently presented here on GoSee. Now he’s had a look around our hotel for GoSee. Read his exclusive review – here on GoSee of course. “They were all there: Wessel …27.11.2013 // ADD article TO MY GOSEE // SHOW article
Cologne locals aren’t really famed for outstanding political involvement. Things are more comfortable on the River Rhine. Life always goes on somehow, and the less one has to with them, the better. Hip Berlin is far, far away and the long distance glamour of Hamburg is difficult for most to imagine. Weird introduction for someone like Dr. Werner Peters? Not really as he’s proof that there are of course exceptions in this city….sorry, interview not available in English! …25.11.2013 // ADD article TO MY GOSEE // SHOW article

New York based artist Maya Hayuk produced an exhibition and very colourful murals on car park walls that get us in the mood for the ‘Urban Art Festival CityLeaks’ in September 2013, which takes place in Cologne, Germany. GoSee met the quirky artist – at the Marsil Hotel of course. Maya Hayuk was born in 1969 in Baltimore and lives in Brooklyn, New York. Baltimore? That makes us think of director John Waters and his 80s trash comedy ‘Hairspray’. Does she know him …07.06.2013 // ADD article TO MY GOSEE // SHOW article
