> DESCRIPTION

401contemporary/LONDONprojects is pleased to announce Jakob Mattner's (Berlin) first solo exhibition in London.

In his collotype prints, sculptures and drawings Jakob Mattner (* 1946) focuses on ephemeral phenomena and transitional moments, thus highlighting a realm of the “in-between” - between day and night, light and shadows, dreaming and waking, movement and rigidity, appearance and reality. It is this crucial moment of transition from one state to another that generates an extremely existential and philosophical dimension in Mattner’s work. At the same time, the use of light, in all of its functions, meanings and manifestations, serves as a leitmotif throughout the work of the artist.

Jakob Mattner studied sculpture at The Academy of Fine Art in Berlin. Major solo shows by the artist were staged in museums such as Künstlerhaus Bethanien, Berlin; Kestnergesellschaft Hannover; Museum der Moderne Salzburg; Akademie der Künste, Berlin. His work has been featured at Biennale di Venezia, Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, Centre d'Art Contemporaine, Geneve, Hamburger Bahnhof  and numerous group shows in Germany and abroad.
