until 11.06. | #3413ARTatBerlin | Galerie Judin presents from 30. April 2022 (Opening on 29.04.) the exhibition The Truths Behind by the artist Philipp Fürhofer.

Philipp Fürhofer, born in Augsburg in 1982, has become a major figure in the national and international art scene over the last years. His name has become synonymous with a body of work that uses glass, mirrors, and light to create highly aesthetic and enigmatic effects.

Four such light boxes – in which complex light cycles transform acrylic glass, mirrors, and impasto painting into living organisms – are also on view in the exhibition, the artist’s third with Galerie Judin. First and foremost, it presents a group of works that revitalizes the traditional format of panel painting using the artist’s familiar visual language resulting in what could be understood as a summary of his previous practice.

Despite all these technical and stylistic novelties, Fürhofer has stayed true to his canon of motifs. As with the light boxes, his work continues to revolve around the ever changing relationship between man and nature. However, Fürhofer’s interest in cycles – evident in the light circuits – has literally faded out. Instead, he focusses on the concurrency of phenomena.

In a sense, we are dealing with the “simultaneity of the non-simultaneous,” as the neo-Marxist philosopher Ernst Bloch proclaimed. Fürhofer no longer depicts the succession but the coincidence of idyllic, romanticizing landscapes and dystopian abysses. An uncomfortable idea that we should get accustomed to.
