johannes kahrs ‘eyes on his body’

luhring augustine gallery, new york ocotber 11 – november 8, 2008

german painter johannes kahrs’ exhibition of new work at luhring augustine gallery will end later this week. the show was kahrs first in the us and featured new work completed over the past year. like earlier works by kahrs, many of the images are based on documentary photography and film stills as well as images from his own archive. the imagery the artist selects features physical confrontation which is often highly sexualized, political and even violent in subject matter. his interpretations of the original works are often blurred, cropped or distorted, distancing the viewer from the reference point. kahrs lives and works in berlin.
