Description

ADRIAN GHENIE | GALERIE THADDAEUS ROPAC

Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is delighted to announce its first solo exhibition of paintings by Romanian artist Adrian Ghenie.

Born in Baia Mare Romania in 1977 and now living and working in Berlin, Adrian Ghenie is currently representing Romania in the 56th Venice Biennale.

Brought up in post-Ceausescu Romania, Adrian Ghenie’s work often dwells on the darker moments of post-war European history and the personalities whose actions have defined its course. Collective and personal memories, film stills, images culled from the Internet and art historical references are cut out and fused to make up the fabric of his paintings. Adrian Ghenie speaks of “painting the texture of history” and it is his fascination in recapturing these lost textures that give rise to the artist’s extraordinarily expressive use of paint.
