Artist talk Nobert Bisky x Sam Vance-Law
Shoreditch House, April 7, 2018, 3pm


The term Anomie describes a social condition in which cultural and moral guidelines barely exist, leading to the collapse of society and anarchy. Norbert Bisky uses this expression as a backdrop for his recent paintings and works on paper, which will be on view from the 7th of April- May 19, 2018, at KÖNIG LONDON.   


The artworks are presented in a room installation, surrounded by red walls, which create the visual illusion of a tunnel in order to escape current crises, wars and the shattered world. The subjects of Bisky's paintings are collapsing buildings, fragmented faces, violently twisted human bodies, as well as insurgents. The artworks confront the viewer with the violence, dynamic and influence of social and political systems on individuals and society.

The solo exhibition is the first one of acclaimed contemporary artist Norbert Bisky in the UK. Born in Leipzig, Norbert Bisky was student of Georg Baselitz at the Universität der Künste Berlin (UdK). His works are part of several Public Collections, amongst them the Museum of Modern Art in New York, Museum Ludwig in Cologne and the National Museum of Contemporary Art in Seoul. In accordance with the exhibition opening the debut album of pop musician Sam Vance-Law got released. The cover of the album "Homotopia" features the work of Bisky.
