Johannes Wohnseifer

For ReMAP 3 Johann König, Berlin is pleased to present new paintings by Johannes Wohnseifer. The Colgne based artist investigates cultural phenomena and shifts of meaning using the mediums of sculpture, painting, collage, installation and film. In his current work the artist has also examined the significance of his personal past for his artistic practice, by incorporating objects and ephemera derived from his immediate surroundings. Subject matter is as varied as the announcements from contemporary galleries for upcoming exhibitions, deconstructed found texts, and cardboard paintings, recycling the refuse of exhibition making and studio practice. In Wohnseifer’s work pop-cultural phenomena and personal experience are consistently inextricably interwoven.

“A ‘personal system meeting a historical system’, Wohnseifer’s work warps our sense of historical memory, personalizing the un-personal into objects that he calls ‘time-traps’. It’s as if he has created an outlet for becoming a part of the spiraling gyres of history, by creating personal re-makes of it.”
(April Elizabeth Lamm, ArtReview)
