STEFAN GUNNESCH: 'Underneath the Skin – Hidden Identities'

Performing & Visual Arts

STEFAN GUNNESCH 

Underneath the Skin – Hidden Identities

30th September – 6th October

Private view Wednesday 2nd October 5pm-9pm TICKET HOLDERS ONLY


The human body, its abstraction and its separate entities are expressed in Gunnesch’s work. His collages show an interplay of different materials, shapes and colours.

Gunnesch’s main inspiration emerges from the vanitas genre, a symbolic work art showing the transience of life, the futility of pleasure and the certainty of death. Change, blossoming and withering are the starting point for his visual research. The collage technique demands that initially, something has to be fragmented and destroyed before something new can emerge. In this sense, the method of cutting is directly related to the theme of vanitas. During creation, the subject decays and changes constantly; and something beautiful can become morbid or even ugly yet fascinating through its own aesthetic. 

With his works, Stefan Gunnesch tries to connect to the audience’s feelings, memories and associations. It is always about finding oneself, which stimulates the reflection and tracing of one’s own body and thereby identity.


Join us October 2nd for the private view of Stefan Gunnesch's solo-exhibition where you will have the opportunity to meet and exchange a few words with the artist.
