At the Kunsthalle St.Gallen, Monika Baer shows an overview of her work. In her paintings, the world is a stage, and the backdrop-like artificiality puts the figures, motifs, and colors under so much strain until the staging between opulent overload and cool distance creates a vacuum in which imagination and reality seem to collide in compressed form. Monika Baer explores the possibilities of content and painting until, image by image, the order of figuration dissolves without abandoning its basic conditions.
 

Monika Baer (1964*, Freiburg im Breisgau/DE) lives and works in Berlin.
