HOLLYWOOD AT VILLA KENNEDY
Villa Kennedy, the prestigious Rocco Forte hotel in Frankfurt, starts the year off with a world-class art exhibition featuring the famous photo artist Kiki Kausch, bringing Hollywood to Frankfurt. For the first time, all six art works of the series “3 Minutes with…” Michael Douglas, Cameron Diaz, Matthew McConaughey, Kevin Costner, Justin Timberlake and Ben Stiller from 2014 will be displayed. Superstars portrayed in just 3 minutes, capturing them in a natural and spontaneous state.
Furhter pieces to be presented include a large-sized photography of Matt Damon showcasing him from another perspective - a back view, as well as the triptych “Man at Work” showing Karl Lagerfeld at a Chanel Shoot in New York in 2005. It is down to him that Wiesbaden born Kiki Kausch owes her remarkable career as a photographer. Kiki saw Lagerfeld coincidentally on the streets of New York and photographed him while he was shooting the Chanel model. Soon after, Kiki sold this first art work to a collector and from then embarked on her career in photography. Her first individual exhibition five years ago was the beginning of a rapid success story. The art works, mostly three-part pieces, are produced in museum-quality in Berlin, where Kiki Kausch has been living for more than ten years. Today her works hang in photo art collections around the world.
“The exhibition at Villa Kennedy is a home coming as well as a premiere at the same time. I can show everything that is new and important to me in my old homeland. At Villa Kennedy I am able to perfectly stage all this, in this unique mixture of historical tracts and contemporary style”, says Kiki Kausch.
Villa Kennedy will open the exhibition with a cocktail reception on January 30th, 2015 at 6 pm for invited guests. The photographs will then be displayed at Villa Kennedy for the next six months.
