Artist Interview: Andreas Hachulla
Today I’m sharing the last of the interviews with artists who are taking part in the first Pop-Up Show. This interview is with Andreas Hachulla! You can check out the work in the exhibition which is open till Saturday, or through The Ballery website and Andreas’ website linked below.
What is your background? Perhaps you could briefly introduce yourself and your practice?
I am Andreas Hachulla, architect, artist and musician. I started working as an architect in 2007, playing live shows since 1996 and doing art exhibitions since 1994.
Have you shown any work at The Ballery before?
What made you apply for this call?
An announcement on Facebook.
Why did you choose to submit the work that you did?
Because we were asked to choose one that would represent the current artistic approach best and besides it is from January 2020, and therefore represents a pre crisis momentum.
Can you tell us a bit about this work?
It is a digital drawing on a smartphone which is part of a series that I started in 2015 as a form of post plein air painting digital impressionism at places where no photos are allowed to take.
Has it been shown before?
Yes, in December 2020 at the Wiedererwachen group show in Berlin.
What are your biggest influences?
Probably my father and 80s & 90s mediaculture.
In which ways has living in Berlin shaped your work or practice?
In every way – endless nights, tons of impressions, freedom, debauchery, respect, individuality, photo restrictions.
What other artists do you like, are there any other Berlin-based artists you are interested in?
Yes, Evgen Čopi Gorišek for instance.
Have you ever been in a group show before?
What’s the experience like for you?
An always welcome chance to get in touch with colleagues or like-minded people.
How do you feel about exhibiting work online instead of in a space?
Since I started my IG account as a sort of online portfolio it has become quite common being present online.
What is your approach to pricing your work?
Size, material, production cost, limitation of editions.
What are you looking for from an exhibition, besides selling work?
Spreading the word of individuality.
Do you ever get nervous about showing work in an exhibition?
