Press Release

Galerie Gilla Loercher is very pleased to present "018 geometric", a group show including a selection of abstract paintings and objects that are inspired by geometric forms and patterns and oscillate between flatness and three-dimensionality. The exhibition comprises artworks by Ivan Liovik Ebel (CH), Ab van Hanegem (NL) and Francisco Rozas (CL).

For some time now, Francisco Rozas has been concentrating on the constructions of big fragile geometric objects. Only on second sight the observer may realize, that the sculptures are created with light materials, such as card paper or paper. They embody exemplary visualisations of mathematical dependencies. For the Gallery Weekend show two years ago at Gilla Loercher, Francisco Rozas put some high objects all over the gallery as if they were models on a catwalk. For the this year Gallery Weekend show, the gallery is happy to present one of Rozas´ recently developed fascinating objects.
Francisco Rozas, born 1980 in Temuco, Chile. Lives and works in Berlin. The artist studied at the ARCIS University Santiago de Chile, at the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf with Prof. Rita McBride and at the Universität der Künste UdK Berlin with Prof. Gregor Schneider and Art in Context (Masters Degree). He received the DAAD (Deutscher Akademischer Austausch-Dienst) stipend and the CONICYT (National Commission for Scientific and Technological Research, Chile) award. His work has been shown at many institutions and galleries: Kunsthalle Bremerhaven; Al Riwaq Art Space (Manama, Bahrain); SAVVY Contemporary, Berlin; Project Space Gegenwart, Frankfurt a.M.; Katzengold, lvbg-Jubiläumsausstellung (curated by Constanze Kleiner); Galerie PANAM, art Karlsruhe 2017, Stand Galerie Gilla Loercher; Santiago, Chile; Galerie Gilla Loercher I Contemporary Art (Berlin) a.o. and at POSITIONS BERLIN art fair 2014 + 2015, Video Lounge; art Karlsruhe 2017 (booth Galerie Gilla Loercher).



The phrase that maybe best describes Ivan Liovik Ebel´s work in a nutshell is “the spaces in between”. For him personally, the term “intermediate spaces” refers to a sort of investigation of the relativity of perception, of forms of non-distinguishability as well as the relationship between time and space.

Ebel works with many different media like painting, print, installation, sculpture or performance. In each case, he is interested in a certain moment of indeterminacy and uncertainty, in which one no longer knows exactly what one is actually looking at. He is always concerned with a very delicate situation, which can often only be observed upon taking a closer look. We would like to draw your attention to the artist´s gorgeous Rebound Paintings series created in a dynamic painting process.
Ivan Liovik Ebel (born in 1983) lives and works in Berlin. He received his Masters in Contemporary Arts Practice from the Bern University of the Arts. In 2015 Ivan Liovik Ebel was nominated for the Berlin Art Prize. His work has been exhibited in numerous solo and group exhibitions at Kunsthaus Langenthal (CH), Kunsthalle Bern (CH), Kunstmuseum Bern (CH), Neue Galerie, London (GB) and Bern (CH), Marks Blond Project, Bern (CH), ZQM Projektraum, Berlin (DE), Lage Egal Projektraum, Berlin (DE), Galerie Widmer Theodoridis, Zürich (CH), Annka Kultys Gallery, London (GB), Galerie Valérie Delaunay / Paris (F), Espace Art & Essai, Rennes (F), Galerie Gilla Loercher I Contemporary Art, Berlin (DE), among many others and at POSITIONS art fair 2014 (booth Galerie Gilla Loercher) and Art Karlsruhe 2017 art fair (booth Galerie Gilla Loercher).


„As a viewer, one quickly has the impression of being more in than in front of the paintings, and submits to the whirlpool of different perspectives“, said art historian Constanze Musterer once about Ab van Hanegem`s work. His geometrically created work included in this exhibit reminds of stars or details of an architectual drawing and evokes a strong three-dimensional effect. Traces of a gesture driven painting process can be explored.
Ab van Hanegem (born 1960) studied at Academie voor Beeldende Kunsten St. Joost (Breda, NL) and at Rijksacademie (Amsterdam, NL). He lives and works in Amsterdam and Berlin. Ab van Hanegem was awarded the Stiftung Vordemberge-Gildewart stipend and the Charlotte Köhler award. His works have been shown in numerous institutions and galleries internationally: Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam, NL; Drawing Center New York, US; Van Abbe Museum, Eindhoven, NL; Centraal Museum Utrecht, NL; Museum De Beijerd, Breda, NL; Museum Wiesbaden, D; Kunsthalle Recklinghausen, D; Kunstmuseum Heidenheim, D; Clemens Sels Museum, Neuss, D; City Hall de Paauw, Wassenaar, NL; Kunstverein Malkasten Düsseldorf, D; Kunstverein Koelnberg, Köln, D; Tekengenootschap Pictura, Dordrecht, NL; Galerie Art & Project, Slootdorp, NL; Vous etes ici, Amsterdam, NL; Galerie Gilla Loercher, Berlin, D; a.o. and at art fairs Art Cologne, Art Brussels, POSITIONS Berlin art fair 2014 (booth Galerie Gilla Loercher); art Karlsruhe 2017 (booth Galerie Gilla Loercher) and on many more occasions. His work is part of a number of collections like KPN, Mondstudio, Stedelijk Museum in Amsterdam, Centraal Museum in Utrecht, Collection Sanders in Amsterdam and Bouwfonds Nederlandse Gemeenten.
