Magdalena Los. Heiße Hütte

, MUHRY zu Gast bei Residence NRW⁺

Magdalena Los 2022


Saturday, 20/08/2022, 3:00 – 9:00 pm

Magdalena Los' artistic practice is based on a conceptual, mostly pictorial or painterly ap-proach. Los' digitally collaged imaginary spaces combine pictorial reference systems and are restless amalgams of a series of discursive, material or temporary references—that is, in Los's artistic practice the works constantly permeate each other. Alternately surreal, comic-like, or naturalistic, the motifs are sketchily layered and constantly revolve around the relationship between work, time, and value, with humor and seriousness always in balance. In the process, the recurring questions "What do I want?" and "What can I do?" illuminate the specific realm between desire and powerlessness, addressing visibility, selection processes, and the contextualization of art.
