Art in Frankfurt: Axel Crieger Exhibition at Rocco Forte's Villa Kennedy

Villa Kennedy, Axel Crieger artist

Walk into the lobby of the Villa Kennedy, housed in a neo-Gothic castle on Kennedyallee in a posh Frankfurt neighborhood, and you’ll be struck by the contemporary art on display: a large-scale canvas hanging above reception, a Calder-like mobile by Gabor Török, photos reminiscent of Mapplethorpe, and an enormous chandelier by English artist Patrice Butler. A member of the Rocco Forte collection, this stately hotel has extensive facilities to please both business and leisure guests, along with its aesthetically-pleasing interiors.

The Villa Kennedy frequently hosts art exhibitions within its walls, and the latest to be showcased is work by Axel Crieger. On view through May 2011 in the public areas of the hotel and the Speyer Presidential Suite, these digital paintings combine a variety of photographs, designs, soundtracks and self-recorded narrations. Crieger has worked as a photographer, director and designer for international clients like Levis, Time Warner, BMW, Polaroid, Heineken, Shell, Daimler, Ford, ARD, and Random House-- in New York, Los Angeles, Paris, London and Milan.

His work has garnered critical acclaim in exhibitions around the world. Within the show at the Villa Kennedy, there are some canvases depicting Kennedy, thus creating a link between the hotel and the art.
