Biography

Enrico Freitag studied Fine Arts at the Bauhaus University in Weimar. While still a student, he was a co-founder of Gallery Eigenheim, a place for contemporary art and communication, which is based in Weimar and Berlin today.

In 2009 he participated in a 6-week residency of the Bauhaus Lab in Marseille. 2015 he followed an invitation of Bart-Invites for a two-month residency in Amsterdam. In the same year he was awarded the scholarship for Fine Arts of the Free State of Thuringia.

As a starting point for his figurative paintings Enrico Freitag uses image processing techniques like montage and collage to cut and mix historical photographs with prepared newspapers and video clips and even his own painted works. The paintings are often dominated by brown and black, and the partially wrapped in an intense mood lighting scenes look at the same time realistic and indeterminate. Fascinated by the difference between objective reality and subjective deformed memory, Freitag combines spatial and temporal separated parts, mounts it to a new fictional ensemble, and provides the possibility of present-time-related associations and interpretations.
