UPCOMING SOLO SHOW "ERASURE" AT THE GALLERY J.J. HECKENHAUER / by Mauren Brodbeck

Photographs form the series „Erasure“, “Monochrome” and „A Moving Image of Eternity” will be in the exhibition from April 11th until June 1st, 2019 at the Galerie J.J. Heckenhauer in Münich.

Opening reception Thursday April 11th, 2019 from 5 pm to 8 pm.

The series "Erasure" is a study and a reflection on the state of being and appearing as well as the erasure and modification of our identity in the face of the beliefs, the cultures and the personal ties we can have. Who are we underneath all of the layers that help us to function in our societies? What is our true nature? The photographs are re-worked with a razor blade used to scratch and move the colour pigments. This is an ongoing series. We are educated to follow and forget about what is most important, our instincts, our creativity, our intuition. In the series “Erasure” the work investigates how identity is molded, folded, destroyed and rebuilt by an expression of inner pulsion, a cry for life and authenticity.
