Peter Feiler, Tower, 2003, coloured pencil on paper, 59,5 x 42 cm
In Peter Feiler's works, the boundaries between fun and horror are fluid. He consistently takes up the topos of the ship of fools in his drawings generating a vortex of contradictory associative chains through fragmentary scenes which keep flaring up. Numerous - partly microscopically small - narrative cosms are competing for attention within an unhinged society. These highly constructed narrative worlds by Peter Feiler challenge the viewer to engage with the phantasmagoric interloops and absurd details of his self-referential system to then create a story of their own with it.
Peter Feiler, born 1981 in Halle a. d. Saale/Germany, 2008 master pupil (Meisterschüler) of Valérie Favre, UdK Berlin/Germany.
