LAWRENCE funun Gallery

لورانس كاليري للفنون

Gallery for Contemporary Art

The LAWRENCE funun Gallery presents contemporary art in the context of migration and globalization. Whether paintings, photography, video, installations or design and fashion—there are no limits to our media. Quite the opposite—interdisciplinary approaches that reflect intercultural ideas and concepts are highly welcome. Our curator Anas Homsi stands for quality and conceptual coherence – he himself being both a graduate of the Academy in Damascus and an internationally successful painter and photographer. But the LAWRENCE funun Gallery is also a matter of our executive leadership and is also substantially led by Frank Alva Buecheler who, through experience as a professor of aesthetics and art market, knows what he's doing. And last but certainly not least, the gallery's program profits immensely from our Italian partners at M'AMA.ART.

The LAWRENCE Gallery is open during the restaurant's normal business hours.

Current Exhibit

jwan khalaf krieg und liebe und das leben

Jwan Khalaf
KRIEG UND LIEBE UND DAS LEBEN


We just want to live the Syrian-Kurdish painter Jwan Khalaf comments on his works of the series Love in Times of the War. In 2016, he collages characters with the smallest strips of package inserts - including those medicines that helped himself to deal with the experience of violence and persecution. Additionally he scribbles with minimalist obsession floral motifs in black-and-white. The manual job helps to defeat the pain. And the plants grow on the canvas - in the series Secret Garden 2017/18 the color returns with power - just as the artist returns to life.

In Lower Saxony's exile in Hannover, Jwan Khalaf feels a sense of security again, something like security for his son and wife. On the run both were separated from him for a traumatically long time. This may also explain the large space female power and strength take in Jwan Khalaf's work - increasingly reclaiming a political dimension. The exhibition War and Love and the Life tells how fear can tentatively yield to hope - just as death is always an end, but love is always a beginning.
