Jårg Geismar – Fly me to the moon
Jårg Geismar at Ruttkowski;68
On Friday, October 12, we are opening a solo exhibition by Jårg Geismar and are pleased to welcome Kenny Schachter for an open talk.
Lichtstr. 8-24 | 50825 Cologne
Jårg Geismar wants to fly high: to the moon, far away. His art reminds of the feathery images which occur in the inner eye just before falling asleep. Razor-sharp outlines take turns with cloud-like illusions, colored lights pulse above everything.
Taking this as childish kitsch would be hasty. There are underlying curiosity and self-confidence to Geismar’s work, which in combination lead to genuine artworks bursting with energy. His works made from glass and light seem to be volatile like gas and you will never know if they not have floated off the exhibition space already. The works are not easy to grasp anyway, at least not by pigeonholing them into artistic practices or art historical contexts. The art of Jårg Geismar is just there and wants to get seen and felt. And if you have once engaged in it, it will never let you go again.
