Raygrams at 'Kiosk der Demokratie'
RAYOGRAM: From the name of Man Ray + -o- + -gram, after French rayogramme. The name Rayogram was heard first on the mountain, Mont Parnasse, a quarter of Paris on the left banc of the Seine, where artists and poets used to gather and recite their poems in public. Parnasse, according to Greek Mythology was a sacred mountain, it was the home of the Muses.
(Isolde Kille created the Rayograms during an artist residency in the mountains of Vermont, painting with light and photographic chemicals.)
The Island Series are Isolde Kille’s first ‘Earth Capsules’ trapping Earth as well as Pigments and Oil paint in-between Glass and Canvas.
In 2012 the Artist re-located her studio from New York City to Santa Fe, New Mexico. In the foothills of Rocky Mountains, her canvases are often lined up on the ground and influenced by elements of Nature. Characterized by a relentlessly experimental and inquisitive approach to a wide variety of styles and subject matter, Isolde Kille's work engages unconventional materials and techniques, playfully provoking Alchemy of Nature.

13 MONTH: photographic documentation
The video shows selected prints of my photographic documentation while I was living at a zen center. My intend as an artist was to choose a situation where I can produce free of the pressure of market and at the same time continue my interest about Time, Space and Existence.
Therefore I started in December 2008 an artist residency in the Zen Center 'Fire lotus' in Brooklyn, NY. In June 2009 I continued my journey and became a Resident in the Zen center ‘Upaya’. For a period of 13 month I lived in Buddhist community, shared meals, participated in the work practice and daily meditation schedule with intensive seminars, week long meditations, lectures of mind and brain connections, next to environmental challenges, how to live in community.
During this time I documented myself with 35mm camera daily. The photographs are an intimate portrait of myself and my immediate surroundings. The original video is 12 Minutes long and runs as a loop.
The photographs are also available as Black&White Prints in Portfolio (96 individual photographs on Fiber based double weight enlarging paper, 11 x 14 each).
13 MONTH: video documentation
The video scenes are influenced by Japanese haiku poems. The haiku focus is on "showing" as opposed to "telling". The videos are expressed in one breath and reveal my preoccupation with the powers and handicaps of perception. What is reality?
