MAL MITTELFORMATE, DU IDIOT!
FRITZ BORNSTÜCK + SID GASTL
March 17 to April 21, 2018
The Berlin painters Fritz Bornstück and Sid Gastl are shown together for the first time. We found the beautiful title MAL MITTELFORMATE, DU IDIOT! (PAINT MEDIUM FORMATS, YOU IDIOT!) during a visit at Sid Gastl’s studio.
This title may give a hint about the presentations character: two deeply convinced painters, for whom the creation of a painting represents an extensive concept, are not defenders of any kind of conceptual art: they paint for the living room and the museum as well as for the museum collection.
While Sid Gastl shows a new group of monochrome paintings as well as a series of drawings, Fritz Bornstück continues in the form of collages. On his canvases, for example, he assembles painted cloth which are initiating the idea of the three-dimensional and guide the human eye into differentiated vision.
MAL MITTELFORMATE, DU IDIOT! is an exhibition that gives the beholder the mindful experience of new painting.
