As the first painting exhibition at the KKW, Let’s Get Physical (titled after the slow, sensual and obscurely beautiful, white label bossa nova version of the song) is a group exhibition bringing together Berlin-based Nordic and Leipzig-based painters. Hannula states, “This is painting as a pleasure principle. Not as a mess, not as a circus, but as a give and take, shout and shine kind of an enterprise. There will be push, but there will be also the counter-part, the pull. This takes seriously the potentiality, the promise of a painterly gesture in all of its sensuality and sensibility – produced and presented in plural ways and polyphonic rhythms.”
