WHEN THE CAT’S AWAY, ABSTRACTION @ Anna Jill Lüpertz, Apr 22 – Jun 4

, 21 April 2016

The WHEN THE CAT’S AWAY, ABSTRACTION group exhibition is on at Berlin’s Anna Jill Lüpertz Gallery, opening April 22 and running to June 4.

Curated by Tina Sauerländer, the show seeks to explore the ‘fluid space’ of interaction at the liminal in-between, where virtual and analogue existences meet with the work of artists who use what the press release calls “abstract visual language” as their tool.

Those artists include Juliette Bonneviot, Manuel Fernández, Philip Hausmeier, Vince Mckelvie, and Cecilia Salama, creative practitioners who present an interest that goes beyond “the cat videos and selfies we share online” to the consequences of the new materials and visual languages that emerge from this online and offline visual fusion.

See the Anna Jill Lüpertz Gallery website for details.**
