until 10.03. | #2322ARTatBerlin | Haus am Lützowplatz presents from 17th January 2019 the exhibition “Burning Man – Electric Sky” by the artist couple Römer + Römer.

With “Burning Man – Electric Sky“, the Berlin-based artist couple Römer + Römer presents a new series of works at the Haus am Lützowplatz that is concerned with the Burning Man festival. The exhibition mainly consists of nocturnal images, in which the Black Rock Desert in the State of Nevada is turned into a make-believe world lit by thousands of artificial light sources. The in some cases very large pictures painted on canvas were created on the basis of a research trip made in 2017.

Living and working together since 1998, the artists Nina and Torsten Römer (*1978 in Moscow and *1968 in Aachen) met at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf where they became master students of A.R. Penck. Their artistic work is based on the transmission of their photographs to large-format panels, offering viewers a juxtaposition that is both essentially sensual and media-reflexive. In the works by Römer + Römer, the indexical principle of photography – the testimony of a past event inscribed in the photographic act – is entangled with the artistic aura of painterly origination. In the highly complex multistep process of image production, Römer + Römer relentlessly examine moments of our present that concern ecstasy and the dissolution of boundaries. Creating, for example, major work cycles about the Carnival in Rio de Janeiro and about the Fusion Festival in Mecklenburg-Vorpommern. This is the point of vantage for the current series focused on Burning Man, which has evolved into a cultural phenomenon since its inception in 1986, with up to 70,000 people traveling to a place where they become actors of a creative community aimed at immersion.

Vernissage: Thursday, 17th January 2019, 7 p.m. – Welcome adress: Dr. Simone Wiechers, Member of the board of directors, Introduction: Dr. Marc Wellmann, Curator of the exhibition
