Julia Gruner "Entropic Motion“

25/10/2023 - 14/12/2023

Galerie Judith Andreae 

In her artistic concept, the artist Julia Gruner explores the boundaries of the medium of painting. An important part of her work is the experimental exploration of the material "colour" - as one of the central elements of painting - in its chemical, physical and material-aesthetic properties. In her first solo exhibition "Entropic Motion" at the Judith Andreae Gallery, a nine-metre-long mural in the main exhibition space forms the centrepiece of her conceived show, a mural on which a greatly enlarged scan of everyday, coloured household liquids and objects such as washing powder, shampoo, food colouring, cling film, mouthwash, cooking oil and cleaning gloves can be seen.

The second exhibition space will be occupied by guest artists whom Julia Gruner has met during her artistic career, with whom she has already realised projects and exhibitions, conceived artistic performance and video works or who have made her curious about a future collaboration.
The group exhibition under the format feat. Liza Dieckwisch, Kathrin Graf, Klara Kayser, Bettina Marx and Nikola Ukic does not only enter into connections with the works of Julia Gruner on the aesthetic level. All the artists share a strong interest in the question of "materiality" and how this can be translated into painting and sculpture.
