Focus On Made in Germany

On the 30th November, we organized the pop-up exhibition «Made in Germany» and presented the curatorial selection of our art influencer, Stefan Pollak. A look back on this pop-up exhibition held in the awesome space of the Montoro12 Contemporary Brussels gallery.

The curatorial selection

Stefan Pollak did the curatorial selection “Made in Germany” for La peau de l’ours. Our curator presented a selection of 3 promising artists based in Germany:

The digital artist Marian Luft, the painter Alexandra Wolframm and the visual artist Tímea Oravecz.

Marian Luft

Five artworks of Marian Luft were exhibited, including one of his brand-new creation “A-Shu-No-Go”. A sneaker, iconic shoe of the 2.0 generation, definitely stuck in the remains of an heavy after-party.

Alexandra Wolframm exhibited four oil on canvas, among which two paintings from the series «Cloud Project» where the artist raises a question about our perception of the natural environment when reality is modified by human interference.

Guest Artist

The event was also the opportunity to see again the work of an artist exhibited in a previous curatorial selection, the visual artist Fabrice Hermans.

The visitors could enjoy the awesome work “Cortisone”, a wrecked Citroën 2 CV. A personal artistic statement and a symbol of the human morbid fascination for the car
