Ping Pong Gallery

Ping Pong Gallery was founded in 2005 and conceived of as an alternative project space wherein an action-oriented activity (ping pong), seemingly unrelated to the arts, would give shape to an exhibition space and set in motion both a literal and figurative back and forth dialogue between artists and individuals. If there is one significant theme underscoring the exhibition and playspace, it is art as a form of unremitting conversation.

Our objective is to show innovative, multidimensional work by emerging artists of all media and simultaneously provide a forum to help foster ideas and acts of free play. Dedicated to upholding a viable conduit for free creativity, free discourse, and free play, Ping Pong Gallery makes its commitment to bringing together artists and friends to experience an actively engaged environment, art-filled space. Ping Pong Gallery presents itself as a sculptural playground, one that will ultimately come to be rooted in the collective instinct, as well as in the works, objects, and performances themselves.

Press Releases

Ping Pong Gallery is pleased to announce OKTOGON, its second solo exhibition with Berlin artist Gwenaël Rattke. In this exhibition, Rattke presents a series of paper-based collages created from a collection of visual material-- long culled from books, old magazines, found photos and record covers.

Although drawing from a multiplicity of references, preoccupations, thoughts and art [German history, Turkish music, Utopian collective communities, political photomontage, Art Brut and Surrealism, the “happy apocalypse,” the connection between modernity and the birth of psycho-analysis, to name a few], deeply central to the artist’s work is a longing for communal aspirations. Expressions of solitude, sexuality, and mystical quests are recurring in the artist’s perpetual search for a collective spirit. The artist says of his work: "the collages are an amalgamation of things that I see, feel, dream, and possibly long for. They are fragments of subjective experiences, which get translated into images, adjusted through the infinite mechanical possibilities of the Xerox machine, then cut up and reconfigured into new images.
