Exhibition

Exhibition on the 250th birthday of Caspar David Friedrich

 

In its current exhibition, the Circus Eins gallery in Putbus is showing works by Florian Ecker, Patricia Lambertus and Christin Wilcken that refer to the motifs and ideas of Caspar David Friedrich. The exhibition marks the 250th birthday of the artist, who was born in Greifswald in 1774 and is regarded as an innovator of art. Since his rediscovery in the 1970s, he has inspired artists worldwide. With his work, he laid the foundation for the independence of art from the depictive function, foresaw participatory strategies through viewer figures in the picture and stimulated the idea of nature conservation.

Florian Ecker (*1977 in Landshut) is showing a multimedia installation that includes sculptures, light projections and photography and incorporates the exhibition venue and the work of Caspar David Friedrich as material. Patricia Lambertus (*1970 in Kempten) stages a wall collage that links past and present and links Friedrich's romantic motifs with the global context of climate change, the destruction of nature and post-colonialism. In her work, Christin Wilcken (*1982 in Güstrow) recreates motifs and phenomena of nature in her drawings, thus deconstructing the human projection of the landscape as an idyllic place of longing.

The title of the show is a weather phenomenon that occurs in certain light conditions on seashores and makes the sunset fade away with a green glow. While this has always been a rarely seen motif, reserved only for "lovers" in Jules Vernes' novel of the same name, it can hardly be experienced today due to excessive air and light pollution.

Supported by the Fund for Vorpommern and Eastern Mecklenburg of the State of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern, the exhibition is being held as part of the events to mark the Caspar David Friedrich anniversary. It was curated by Susanne Burmester and can be seen until July 7 from Friday to Sunday from 1 to 5 pm.
