Murat Önen, Vielleicht, um schönere Wagen zu fahren

18.06. – 01.08.2021

Murat Önen presents his first solo exhibition in NRW after graduating from the HBK Dresden in 2017 and going to the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. His subjects – male figures – are created through a multi-layered structure and repeated interventions in the motif. From concrete experiences, which Murat Önen has processed in his subjects, one finds in this exhibition a new complex of works with exclusively figurations, whose motif was created in the intuitive process of painting. The exhibition is part of *WELL am Ebertplatz, supported by the Stiftung Kunstfonds, Neustart Kultur and the Kulturamt Köln.

Curated by Maria Wildeis.
