Artist Werner Ungerer will be showcasing his latest solo show, smalls.intimates.privates at Artist Admin for an entire month, from the 10th of May until the 9th of June.
The works of smalls.intimates.privates document a tumultuous time in our lives (end of 2019 – 2022). Disinterested in his usual medium – words – Werner seeks an oblivion of sorts through colour, pattern, destruction, and reassembly.
The collages are small meditations on loneliness which explore the private systems we create, follow, and adhere to in order to ensure safe, predictable outcomes. These invisible “grids” are mysterious to us and when they are compromised, we experience dread and elation, anxiety and liberation all at the same time.
The works consist of mixed media collages combined with hand painted elements. Werner utilised various materials including board, paper, acrylic, gouache, dokument ink, glaze medium, texture paste, cold glue, and magazine clippings.
Werner (b. 1978) is a self-taught artist who has exhibited in several group shows in Cape Town. Among them have been at Iziko National Gallery and Blank Projects. Smalls.intimates.privates is his third solo exhibition and is a radical departure from his previous calligraphy-style works.
