SEEMINGLY ABSTRACT, Exhibition, Hamburg, 2015

In autumn 2015 the exhibition Scheinbar Abstrakte Kunst (Seemingly Abstract Art) by KP Brehmer was shown in the very building in which he himself had co-founded a producers gallery almost thirty years earlier (now long closed). The show took place during a refurbishment of the building in a two-week gap between the gutting of the spaces and their restoration.
As a construction site is not necessarily an ideal habitat for paintings, we installed a quasi sterile backdrop behind and under each of the paintings. These surfaces on the floor and walls joined into virtual spaces around each of the paintings, three-dimensional passe-partouts carved out of the raw site around them: seemingly abstract and generic, but actually tailored precisely to the different wall and floor conditions.
