Aaron Rahe
Mar 25 – Apr 19, 2017

Painter Aaron Rahe (*1986) addresses the topics of nation, patriotism, body, fear and health.

Figurative paintings turn Deutschland into Deutschländ. Art history quotes mix with uncompromising painting techniques, thus ignoring the boundaries of the medium.

The classical medium of oil on canvas is accompanied by monumental colour battles on cleaning rags or national flags; instead of pigments, sometimes painkillers have been crushed with a pestle and mortar or the painting thinning medium of turpentine has been replaced by the healing liquid of the aloe plant.

Materiality and content come together as an logical-illogical concept.
