Fire without a Sound

Byron Bay From 3 July to 27 October 2020

Presentation
Artist Jorg Karg has just unveiled a new body of work with his exhibition 'Fire without a Sound', following more than a year of experimentation in his studio where he took thousands of photographs, experimented with clay, wire, wood and many other materials and found objects. The artist has described this creative process as follows:

"Just to name some things, I covered a chair in concrete and glued around 1000 pearls on fabric. I bent candles, grinded stone for weeks and smashed a lot of beautiful ceramics just to photograph the shards. All to finally understand one thing."

“Breaking the boundaries means breaking
my own boundaries in first place.
Dismiss all restrictions. Exhale everything.
Start again."


ABOUT THE ARTIST
Jorg Karg is a German artist with an unbridled obsession for pictures who has been focusing on digital collages for over a decade. He takes photographic material, rearranges it, and abstracts it, using photo-editing software, creating his own photographic material while collaborating with other photographers from all around the world. Before discovering this fascinating for photography, he obsessively painted and drew, which is big influence in his current photographic practice.

Jorg was nominated for The BLOOM Award 2016 (Art.Fair Cologne) and was shortlisted for the Ashurst Emerging Artist Prize 2017. Since then he exhibited in the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Belgium and Sweden. In 2018 and 2019 the journey went on and his works were recognized by several awards like the PX3 Paris Photo Award or the IPA International Photography Award. The range of exhibitions has also expanded to France, Spain, Hong Kong, Japan, USA and Australia.

ARTIST STATEMENT
“The intention behind my digital photo collages is that the beholder feels addressed immediately, without any further explanation. Therefore I use present-day visual language and techniques to combine it with long established, fundamental rules of painting and drawing. Our subjective perception is shaped by so many instant influences these days. Modern media affects us immensely, but so does almost forgotten ideas about shapes, colors and expressions of past days. Everything builds on one another and is subconsciously present all the time. All that can be used to move the viewer and create an unexpected personal experience.”
