until 20.05. | #2031ARTatBerlin | Robert Morat Galerie presents from 10th May 2018 as a short interlude the exhibition “A Trilogy” with new works by the artist Jessica Backhaus. On Himmelfahrt (Ascension Day), May 10th, the gallery is open.
Robert Morat Gallery is thrilled to present as an intermission, just for 10 days, new work by gallery artist Jessica Backhaus! With her new series “A Trilogy“, published by Kehrer Verlag, Jessica Backhaus resolutely pursues a path towards a pictorial abstraction that was already foreseeable in her last works. The trilogy consists of three new series: Staged Still Life Studies titled “Shifting Clouds”, minimalistic color and light experiments titled “Beyond Blue” and – in fact a completely new step for the documentary photographer Jessica Backhaus – freely associated, poetic mixed media works and collages under the title “New Horizon“.

Jessica Backhaus is considered one of the most distinguished voices in contemporary photography out of Germany today. Her work is published and exhibited internationally and can be found in major collections such as the collection of the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston, the Margulies Collection in Miami or the Deutsche Börse Collection in Frankfurt. Kunsthalle Erfurt devoted a major museum show to her work in 2013. Born in Cuxhaven 1970, she studied in Paris. From 1995 to 2009 Backhaus lived in New York and has since returned to work and live in Berlin. The book to the series “Six Degrees of Freedom” is published by Kehrer Verlag, Heidelberg.
