From 4th November until 23rd December 2017 the new solo exhibition by renowned German artist Peter Feiler can be seen at Hoorn & Reniers. The opening of the exhibition will be performed on Saturday 4th November at 16.00 hours.
Peter Feiler’s grotesque drawings and paintings cover the precarious subject of “what men can do to each other“ with a childishly innocent patina standing in harsh contrast to repelling and nevertheless fascinating details. His protagonists’ salacious, almost pornographic poses, scenes of abuse, rape, torture, adultery, are merely alluded at times, at times pointed out in blatant explicitness. “I am not a missionary”, Peter Feiler says, “I don’t want to change people. But maybe I can make them discover something good with their repulsion of my provocations.”
The exhibition ‘Früchte der Dekadenz’ will show new drawings and paintings by Peter Feiler (Halle an der Saale, Germany, 1981) who graduated in 2007 from the ‘Universität der Künste’ in Berlin where he was taught by professor Wolfgang Petrick en Daniel Richter. Amongst his paragones he counts Bruegel the elder, Jheronimus Bosch, Albrecht Dürer and Otto Dix. His works make part of collections like those of Museum Boijmans van Beuningen (Rotterdam), the Sammlung Olbricht (Berlin) and the Museum of New and Old Art (Hobart, Australia).
