Serigraffeur 10 Year Anniversary Exhibition

11 March - 02 April 2022
Neurotitan Gallery, Berlin-Mitte
Vernissage: Friday, 11 March, Showcase Exhibition:

“The Danger Series” is a series of screen-prints (wip since 2016) contemplating urbanization. The motifs are based on cities or towns I have travelled to or have a relation to and which I feel the need to make this comment on.

The Danse Macabre or Dance of Death, is an artistic genre of the Late Middle Ages on the universality of death: no matter one’s station in life, the Dance of Death unites all.

On a visit to Johannesburg, South Africa in 2016, I hung out with the printmakers from “Danger Gevaar Inkozi Studio”. We spoke of possibilities of a collaboration and they suggested I join in on their project, an evolving epic based on Dürers "Four Riders of the Apocalypse" set in Johannesburg, with each artist expanding on one of the riders. Being three at the time, they were missing the fourth: Death. I gladly took it on and on returning to Berlin made several ink drawings on the theme. Unfortunately the initial euphoria got depleted by busy schedules, distance and life and nothing became of this collaboration.

When I started screen-printing regularly, I produced a triptych of 3 colour prints using these drawings. To commemorate the initial intent I named them “Danger”, “Gevaar” and “Inkozi” respectively. This was the beginning of “The Danger Series”.

The group exhibition also features: MATHIEU PAUGET - ROOM SERVICE; YUKI - PORTRAIT OF OUR FRIENDS; TOM SINGIER - FIESE FLIESEN and many more …
