Maureen Jeram . THE OTHER SIDE OF SLEEP

Opening


January 18th 2008
6 to 9 pm

Sleep is like painting: You are alone but also accompanied by a long tradition of dreamers. The motif of a sleeping person is familiar, the reference to an iconography with such a long-standing tradition however quite courageous. Hence Maureen Jeram’s paintings seem to oscillate between states of calmness and nervous tension. The concrete presence of the painted figures – leaving aside the knowledge of representation’s intrinsic belatedness – makes itself felt only to be seized by powerful tropes of art history. It would be easy for these figures to be overwhelmed by the power of their antecessors. In exacting art-historical manner one could cite many pictures of divine and secular nudes whose bodies instead come to visit these sleepers in their lonely state of un-rest but leave again without having been able to contest their individuality.

Duration of the exhibition 19 January to 1 March 2008
Opening hours Tuesday to Saturday . 12 to 6 pm
