Julian Charriere presents his most ambitious solo exhibition to date at Langen Foundation. Controlled Burn will occupy the whole of the Tadao Ando designed museum in Neuss. Featuring 8 new commissions set within a constellation of major works from Charrière’s oeuvre, the exhibition represents the artist’s most extensive exhibition to date.
Wieser’s site specific wallwork for The Leadenhall Building weaves various narratives—fictive, biographical, historical—into a backdrop that functions like a stage, encouraging the viewer to consider his or her place in time at the center of a great human drama that unfolds recurrently and relentlessly.
Naufus Ramírez-Figueroa creates dreamlike works of art with elements from literature, folklore, magic and childhood memories. His performances, sculptures and installations are rooted in experimental theatre and they have a political activist side too. In particular, the tragic civil war in his homeland Guatemala (1960-1996) is a recurring theme.
The current situation gave rise to the idea of an exhibition about color, joy, and happiness, which is meant to put a smile on our faces, even if just for a moment. Its focus is the joie de vivre and euphoria that art can make us feel.
Tactiles is conceived as a site-specific painting, where primordial architectural structures give a new rhythm to the use of the exhibition space, that becomes a support to the artist’s practice where colors seem to emerge spontaneously from the space itself, inserting landscapes within landscapes and creating something that seems to have always been there.
