Berlin-based artist Klaus Jörres (1973) is one to watch. uses a conceptual language bringing together the abstract and the figurativ. Based on modernism, landscape and popular culture, the artist creates fictional spaces, combining structures, methodically based on mathematical grid images, with forms of human body parts and the environment. Interestingly, the flatness of his minimalist work is also challenged, pushed again into the three-dimensional realm in his latest show at Dittrich & Schlechtriem gallery in Berlin. The exhibition is entitled GrünLand, and is highlighted by canvases mounted on the front and the back of custom-fitted modular racks. Rolling to the left or right, turn at angles, almost performative, yet disguised in function and rational gestures. It’s part of Jörres’ newest body of work which also comprises of a series of large wall-mounted paintings. The show also includes a series of small-scale works, a departure from the norm for the artist (on through Sep 7). Location: Dittrich & Schlechtriem, Linienstrasse 23 (Mitte).
