Dancer, poet, regisseur, object artist and founding member of the French artists’ movement Nouveau Réalisme as well as main representative of Eat Art–Daniel Spoerri (*1930), born in Gelati, Romania, gives reason for visual irritation in his Fallenbilder (snare- pictures), compositions of “trapped remains of everyday realities”. The examination of the transformation of materials and “things” is essential for his artistic oeuvre. Through a simple intervention, for example through flipping an object from horizontal to vertical sight, he stirs our way of perceiving reality and undermines adopted habits. Since the 1980s up to today Spoerris works have become part of main international museum collections and exhibitions affirming his position as a main representative of the European post-war art scene. The exhibition at LEVY Salon honors the 91-year-old artist on the occasion of his large museum exhibition at Langen Foundation, Neuss with a small retrospection of his oeuvre of the past seven decades.

LEVY gallery is delighted to welcome you in person again in our upcoming exhibition »Marc Lüders – Theory of Existence« at TOM REICHSTEIN | CONTEMPORARY. The œuvre of Marc Lüders (*1963) stands out through a subtle break-in of painting into the pictorial space of the photograph. Besides the painted floating objects, he integrates topographically dis-located, realistic figures into the anonymous, urban landscape or symbolically charged natural environment of his »photopictures«. In a disconcerting manner, they cease to detach totally in an interplay of impasto and translucency from their surroundings. By generating this peculiar illusionary world, he points out to the torrent of manipulated media images that wash around our everyday lives simulating an ostensibly transparent reality and challenge our vision and way of perceiving. The selection of works for the exhibition focus on latest works.

 

The exhibition can be visited after registration. The event takes place in accordance with the currently applicable safety and hygiene measures.
