Patty Morgan presents 'Synchronicity III' by Annika Kappner

For our next exhibition, we have invited online art platform Patty Morgan to host and curate their talent at X BANK. Synchronicity III is a series of five large scale paintings and a digital, browser based work created by Annika Kappner (Berlin, 1980). We'll use our high-tech event space The Vault to showcase the digital, browser-based work, where the art becomes an immersive, interactive projection filling up The Vault entirely.

Annika Kappner investigates the perception of image in a world where the distinction between analogue and digital is fading away. The five large scale paintings of "Synchronicity III" recall the colour schemes of romantic and impressionist masterpieces as much as contemporary digital culture. The reflective surface of the paintings creates movements when light conditions and the motion of the viewer change. As a result, a still image is converted into a succession of ever-repeating
moments, manipulating time and space.

Annika Kappner takes this principle even further when creating a browser-based, digital work based on the five paintings. The never-ending visual experience of the glitch-like aesthetics now becomes interactive, starting a dialogue on self consciousness and the entertainment aspect of art consumption.

Online art platform Patty Morgan connects young, talented artists with art buyers.
Over 500 artists have been accepted to the platform, selected by curators of top
Dutch art institutes. All works presented are for sale at X BANK until the 17th of
October and can be tried at home using Patty Morgan’s "TryBuy Service".
