Arno Bojak | New Order | Köppe Contemporary | 14.08.-11.09.2021

until 11.09. | #3113ARTatBerlin | Köppe Contemporary shows from 14th August 2021 the solo exhibition New Order with works by the artist Arno Bojak.

The fantastic, the absurd and the monstrous, deformations, metamorphoses and transformations as well as references to tragedy and comedy as well as to art and literature play a primary role in Bojak’s art. In the most recent work phase, “New Order”, begun in 2020, another characteristic of Arno Bojak’s art comes to the fore – camouflage. The figurative, representational and descriptive elements of his earlier work phases are not completely abandoned in the new series of works, but they are strongly enigmatic or seem to be hidden unavailable under surfaces or structures. Arno Bojak condenses the meaningful representational narrative structure of his pictorial motifs in such a way that it approaches an abstract surface. What remains are camouflage-like hidden associations of the representational. “The colour has withdrawn from the objects. It no longer wants to describe, rather it condenses into surfaces and leads a life of its own,” says the artist himself.

Arno Bojak, born in Wuppertal in 1974, began his studies at the Düsseldorf Art Academy in 1995. He studied with professors Markus Lüpertz and Dieter Krieg, among others. In 1999 he completed his studies as a master student with Dieter Krieg. The fantastic, the absurd and the monstrous, deformations, metamorphoses and transformations as well as references to tragedy and comedy as well as to art and literature play a primary role in Bojak’s art.

The series of works “New Order”, on which the exhibition focuses, is also characterised by Arno Bojak’s unique visual language. Many things will be familiar to connoisseurs of his work. For example, the unmistakable colour aesthetics of his paintings and the typical way in which Bojak modulates with colour or the sophistication with which he “inscribes” structures into the still fresh mass of paint. But the figures, spaces and objects that the artist forms around his core theme of man are no longer a secure possession. They remain uncertain, are only vague allusions to former moments or states. They interpenetrate and overlap each other, which is reminiscent of processes in nature or cosmic processes in which condensation, volatilisation, dematerialisation and final dissolution are interdependent in an eternal cycle.
