Series of works by Antje Dorn
The Berlin artist Antje Dorn confronts us with situations and constellations from our everyday life. Dorn toys with our viewing habits by changing the context of certain pictorial elements, thus allowing us to see them with new eyes: The series Bauten defy the logic of gravity, Milkyway shows geometric landscape paintings and in Rare Animals And Numbers unusual creatures with numbers on paper can be seen.
