HELP OUT TO BUILD A RETIREMENT HOME FOR ELEPHANTS
Defense of Animals USA is urgently looking for supporters for their campaign to send Tania – a female Indian elephant who has lived alone for most of her 39 years – to a wildlife sanctuary. Although the European Association of Zoos and Aquaria requires female Elephants to be housed in groups, Tania has lived alone for most of her life. She has a foot infection that is slowly killing her. The online petition has closely raised its 186000 signatures it needs, but there is no elephant sanctuary in Europe where Tania could go if she did get free. There are over 50 elephants living in these kind of conditions all over Europe and there is nowhere for them to go.
Kate Garner and 5 Pieces Gallery now teamed up with Tony Verhulst and Sofie Geotghebeur who are raising money to build an ELEPHANT HAVEN in the South of France. ELEPHANT HAVEN have found an amazing piece of land with 2 lakes on it in Southern France. The owner is keen that is should become an elephant sanctuary, but they need to raise €50,000 to hold it. In order to raise money to help elephants like Tania in a permanent way, Kate Garner has generously donated artwork to be auctioned off during this exclusive event.
In the ELEPHANT HAVEN charity art auction you can bid for some of the most renowned portraits of Kate Moss, Angelina Jolie, Bjork, David Bowie or Iggy Pop by famous photographer Kate Garner. All photographs are out of the regular edition, signed and numbered by Kate Garner and sold with a certificate of authenticity. Buy a photograph directly or put a bid in for half price or above to have the chance to get one of these outstanding photographs way under the market price and to help the elephants. 80% of the amount raised will be donated directly to ELEPHANT HAVEN. Thank you so much for supporting and helping us raise money to help elephants like Tania in a sustainable way!

CURRENT EXHIBITION: Michael Ramsauer
Michael Ramsauer's (1970, Oldenburg/Germany) approach to painting is uncompromisingly consistent and stringent: not for him the relaxing pause nor the sudden stop before launching off in some more convenient, but unforeseen and unforeseeable direction; he will not avoid an obstacle by seeking the respite of an easy, circuitous route, nor swerve and plunge into tangled, tortuous vicissitudes of dizzying complexity; nor yet is he ever allured into the quicksands of falsely seductive oases. If he does come to a fork, he plans parallel, specular routes that are destined to rejoin each other further along the road they left. Ramsauer's way is, therefore and however, a rugged and perilous one, unaccommodating and treacherous: it is founded in the chance logic of a gamble and the consistency and stringency that govern his approach are none other than a determined keeping of faith with that wager, which postulates the inescapable commitment of a coming to terms with reality which, however, must be translated and achieved only through the visionary transfiguration of it, though it also remains possible to accept the provocation of the exercises in mimetic translation represented by his predilection for classical portraiture. © Lionello Puppi
