Jörg Bräuer studied at the school of Photography and Printing in Munich, and holds a Fine Arts degree from the Fashion Institute of Technology (F.I.T.), New York University. He has lived and worked in Munich, New York, London, Lisbon and Barcelona. Today, he splits his time between Brussels, in the Sablon art district, and his studio in south-west France. His artistic research is focussed on the alteration of matter by time, expressed through different means: photography, painting, sculpture and installations.
Within his themes, he wraps his conceptual approach in a poetic vision of the world around us. “The Edge of Silence” reflects the chromatic beauty and the graphic and abstract purity of the impressive falaises in Normandy, eroding with time. With “Conversations in Silence”, he recreates a subtle and understated dialogue between the gardens, trees and sculptures of the Château Vaux-le-Vicomte, before their restoration, still covered with the patina of centuries. His series “Asperity” explores the rough, unrefined landscapes of Iceland and the connection with nature’s most essential elements. With his photographic plates, using the unique and manual collodion techniques, it creates various series: «Ceps, l’enracinement du temps» (Ceps, the Rooting of Time), reveals the visible traces of time in the vineyards of Calon- Ségur; «Aigua Xelida» sublimates the coastal landscapes of Girona in Spain; «The Dissolution of Time» exposes the unique beauty of Iceland’s landscapes.
The «Monoliths» explores a new direction in the texture of time, through sculptures engraved with poetic quotations about time. Finally, the entropic canvases of “Terra Temporis» stem from a same feeling of an inevitable loss of energy. Spazio Nobile has represented Jörg Bräuer since 2016. His second solo show at the gallery will take place at the end of 2022.
