until 02.06. | #1261ARTatBerlin | Galerie Gilla Lörcher presents from 29th April 2017 the exhibition “I’m a passenger” by the artist John Cornu.
John Cornu works with an aesthetic inherited from minimalism and modernism (seriality, modularity), while maintaining a strong relation to context (historical, architectural) and a form of contemporary romanticism (a penchant for degradation, blindness, violence, and destruction). With an interest for modern ruins, coercive systems, logics of power, and the passage of time, the artist imbues his productions with an atmosphere at once poetic and without compromise. Whether sculptural, pictorial, or installation-based, they blend paradoxical forces, setting up a multiplicity of meanings and readings.
A melancholic melody filters out from the exhibition « I’m a passenger ». It sketches a haunted portrait of our interior demons, the outline of a murky dream vibrating between violet purple and deep black.
