A subtle touch et autem corpus tenderit
11 JAN - 13 JAN 2019–
Nils Köpfer is interested in the conditional properties of painting and drawing, in particular the possible spatial topologies in images that are related to time, body and material.
The materiality of the paint itself together with its sculpted surface, which Köpfer has activated with treatments of varying intensities and emotions, alludes to the absent body contact of a creator who worked in close proximity to the painting. This leads to an image that can be understood both as a reflective portrayal of each component as well as an object of spatial work that can be understood outside the realm of painting.
