The exhibition focuses on drawing as a medium of differentia tion and structuring\, as well as it's function as draft\, sketch\, pattern or graffiti.

\n

All representative elements are repealed from Klaus J örres’ canvases and the act of painting is reduced to structuring the image s' surface. The paintings are designed with strict geometrics\, ocassionall y varying vertical or horizontal lines in constant repetition. Their serial and sober order is interfered by seemingly arbitrary vandalization with sp ray paint.
David Murphy’s steel structures are derived from the neat wicker-work tunnels of the traditional woven eel traps\, but enlarged to hu man scale. Confronted with the body\, the work becomes\, like drawings\, a handful of overlapping black lines: uncertain depths and flattened volumes.
In Viktor Timofeev’s labyrinthine architectural utopias\, figurative image personnel is replaced with blocky rune-like typography. Between tilt ing surfaces and massive floating forms it develops a dynamic of its own. The slogans and word fragments that Michael Bevilacqua scratches or le aves with stencils and spray paint on the rich metallic surfaces of his pai ntings playfully refer to pop- and urban subcultures and relate to minimal- as well as to street-art.
