Franz Ackermann exhibits at Dirimart
ISTANBUL-Hürriyet Daily NewsDirimart presents “Transit: Again/Always/Forever” by Franz Ackermann. Franz Ackermann mesmerizes the viewers by transforming our perception of reality. Employing a radiantly colored landscape of shapes, Ackermann investigates the themes of cultural commodification, globalism and urban generation. “Transit: Again/ Always/Forever” can be viewed from April 7th to May 13th.
Franz Ackermann’s paintings constitute the chronicle of his tragicomic impressions from his travels. The psychedelic explosions, dense layers of fog and modular landscapes offer a cross section of an apocalyptic world. While exploring the cultural differences, he visits different corners around the world on the pursuit of the unusual. During his visits, he seeks the “unknown”. He transmits his travel experiences to the viewers through his works. In front of his paintings, one would also communicate both to his past experiences and imagination.
