until 25.05. | #2473ARTatBerlin  | EIGENHEIM Berlin shows from 24 April 2019 an exhibition with painting and drawing by the artist Enrico Freitag.

ENRICO FREITAG In his paintings, drawings and graphics Enrico Freitag reflects fundamental and contemporary aspects of human civilization. In anthological series, he devotes himself to various phenomena of socially relevant themes, until a complex connection arises between the artist‘s various groups of works.

An intellectual starting point and at the same time a recurring motif, which also proves to be an inspiration for the artist‘s other subjects, can be seen in the series entitled „LabOra“. With this title, a phrase derived from the Benedictine order „Ora et Labora“ (pray and work), the artist leads us into a world of work that is also shaped by an almost contemplative aura and yet deep immerse into an active Fordist dystopia of mass production. Work is neither heroized nor criticized by the artist, but considered neutral and as a logical component of civilization and society.

In a kind of autopoiesic development of this basic idea, series such as „The Poisoning“, which underlies a momentous industrial disaster in the 1950s in Japan, are created. An other example is the series „Fresh Kills“, which in its ambiguity on the one hand refers to the eponymous, at that time the world‘s largest waste dump on the outskirts of New York, on the other hand almost ironically builds the bridge between factory-fresh, the desire of our consumer society for brand-new goods, and the fleeting moment of having a disposable society paying homage to abundance.
