September 15 - October 20, 2012
The Barbara Gross Galerie, in conjunction with OPEN ART, is showing works by Berlin artist Julian Rosefeldt parallel to his exhibition titled American Night. Film Installations 2008-2011 at the Bayerische Akademie der Schönen Künste. Rosefeldt’s technologically elaborate films and photographic works are distinguished by their cinematographic opulence. At the intersection of narrative and film installation the artist creates visually overwhelming baroque scenarios whose expressive power makes them seem like historical paintings. The linchpin of the Rosefeldt subject is the ambivalent relationship between being and surface, apparent and latent reality.
