Johannes Kahrs
Then, maybe, the explosion of a star

Past: May 12 → July 24, 2016

The frac île-de-france presents the first major solo exhibition in Paris by Johannes Kahrs, shown at le Plateau. Although his work spans a wide range of techniques, including drawing, video and sound installations, he is probably best know for his paintings. These distinctly realist works, which are generally based on photographs (sourced from mainstream media or his personal archive), carefully avoid narration; by isolating their subjects and eliminating all contextual details, Kahrs thwarts any attempt to identify their source. Freed from their original context, the images take on a universal quality whose evocative potential resonates deeply with spectators.
