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.
