From the beginning of Jürgen Drescher’s career, the strategies of transfer and context-
Jürgen Drescher’s work of the 1980s and 1990s was predominately characterized by transfer or by the transformation of real objects, as is apparent in the work Korridor (1984), where the threadbare carpet of the hallway in the artist’s home has been translated into a display-
The exhibition at Badischer Kunstverein highlights Jürgen Drescher’s more (and most) recent works so as to pointedly draw on the artist’s oeuvre from this point of origin, exploring the complexity of his artistic creativity over the past several decades.
Jürgen Drescher (b. 1955, Karlsruhe) lives and works in Berlin.
Badischer Kunstverein is pleased to present Jürgen Drescher with his most extensive solo exhibition in Germany to date. For over three decades, Drescher has been negotiating in his works the formal, poetic, and performative potentials of sculpture against the backdrop of artistic, economic, and ecological processes of value creation. The exhibition, which is titled dig it, traces an arc from Drescher’s current and recently produced works to his early artwork from the 1980s.
