Jens Fänge
Inner Songes / Jens Fänge
February 6 – March 27, 2021
Perrotin
Paris, France

For his second exhibition at Perrotin Paris, Inner Songes, Jens Fänge presents more than two dozen new paintings as part of greater mise-en-scene that transforms the gallery itself into a human-scale composition.

Jens Fänge’s three-dimensional paintings welcome the viewer into topsy-turvy dreamscapes in which recurring figures, faces and furniture appear to hover over sparse domestic interiors or Jens Fängeabstract backgrounds. In addition to using small wooden and copper elements to build and populate multiple planes within each composition, Fänge pushes the limits of painterly dimensionality even further by extending his fictional realms beyond the typically hermetic picture plane and into real space.

Collapsing the boundaries between his artworks and their exhibition space, Fänge uses modified photographs of his framed compositions or snapshots of his own surroundings to create yet another pictorial layer.

Characterized by heavily made-up eyes, thin arched brows and coiffed hair, the androgynous protagonists of many of Fänge’s paintings recall certain portraits by German Expressionist painters like Otto Dix and Elfriede Lohse Wächtler. Certain objects and styles referenced in the paintings corroborate this vaguely 1920s/30s aesthetic.

  • Georg Kussmann: FRG

    The German dramatist Heiner Müller observed that German history lies as if smothered by a rheumatism blanket: beneath there is warmth and stagnation, just enough to give the impression all is well, while the peripheries are freezing. Georg Kussmann’s photographs in FRG were created under this metaphoric blanket. Made in the Federal Republic of Germany over a single summer, they depict everyday scenes of life, work, and leisure (more…)
