EXHIBITION: JONAS BURGERT | SCHUTT UND FUTTER
Jonas Burgert | Schutt und Futter
22nd February – 20th May 2013
For Schutt und Futter, kestnergesellschaft presents a series of new and recent paintings by Jonas Burgert. In his figurative oil paintings Burgert creates stage-like illusory spaces, populated by symbolic appearances, reflecting a desire for visual stimulation and provocation. In large-format compositions he skilfully intertwines classical painting techniques with visual elements of pop culture and plays with preconceived notions of space to disrupt and challenge the viewer.
The exhibition is accompanied by a fully illustrated catalogue, including an essay by Dorthée Brill and an interview with Jonas Burgert and curator Heinrich Dietz.
A talk with the artist will be held on Sunday 10th March, at 3pm at the kestnergesellschaft. Tickets are limited, but can be purchased via the museum’s reception: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0049 (0)511 7012010.
