Blende

Kathrin Günter and Florian Fausch
“Blende”
November 3rd 2018 – January 5th 2019
opening reception: November 2nd 6 – 9pm

In the upcoming exhibition titled „Blende“ janinebeangallery arranges the works of painter Florian Fausch with those of conceptual artist Kathrin Günter.
The paintings of the Swiss artist Florian Fausch are utopian architectural landscapes with a formal language which follows its own laws. These are places as well as „non-places“ at once, circling the concept of the painting. Landscape and interior space are being unfolded and splintered, interlock with each other again and form something entirely new.
Berlin artist Kathrin Günter relocates her conceptual conjunction of voodoo-spirits and celebrities into the living spaces of the latter, i.e. into the houses and rooms of stars and prominent figures. Without their actual inhabitants and now possessed and blurred by spirits, these spaces are presented as a surreal adaption of the ghost photography of the early 20th century.
The constellation of the works of both artists culminates in a mutually inspired installation spreading into the surrounding space.
