The exhibition Fliegen ohne Flügel (‘Flying without Wings’) features a series of wall works exploring the reverse process of mark-making. The works refer to certain traditions in painting such as portraiture, still life and landscape.
Jean-Philippe Dordolo’s work plays with the idea of representation, figuration and gesture. His approach is as humorous as it is complex and layered. His works range from made objects and drawings; and extend further into performance. His influences and processes cross-reference each other and borrow a variety of ideas – from art history to culture at large.
