> DESCRIPTION

The Feierabend show assembles works by Matthias
Dornfeld (*1960), Lin May (*1973), Lutz Braun (*1976)
and HP Zimmer (1936–1992). Even though some of the
works are three dimensional, and use material other
than pen and paper, the show as such is focused on
drawing. All the works share a common element: They
are all intensely concerned with figuration despite
the fact their approaches are very different. In the
oeuvre of HP Zimmer, co-founder of the SPUR group,
he repeatedly discusses the relationship between
abstraction and figuration. In the works of the younger
artists in the show it becomes visible how deeply they
are engaged with the question of how to depict animals
or human beings. Besides some darker aspects one can
always recognize a strong love for life itself, celebrating
very existential moments.
The title Feierabend stems from a drawing by
HP Zimmer from 1969 that will be part of the
exhibition.
