Jürgen Stollhans presents drawings and miniature images for his second solo exhibition in M29. They depict thoughts, observations, and moods which oscillate between cliché, the idyllic, nightmare, pessimism and parody. His thematics circulate around politics, architecture, city planning, zoology and space travel. Thereby his work allows for the influx of both history and the present, art and daily life, or elements of biography and evolution theory. He develops branched analogies, exploits images, links signs and meanings, and distorting and translating them anew, he ferrets out the paradoxes and absurdities. Stollhans creates using his own archive, comprised of sketchbooks, newspaper articles, photographs and found objects, which he has accumulated over the course of different research trips and lines of inquiry. As in the case of the collage, disparate motifs of images and text are assembled together, mounted into one another and newly forged together. The image motifs are broken up in both form and content, the visible and explicable thus distorted. Stollhans plays with alienation, deferral and camouflage: mimesis and mimicry. Definitions, explanations and translations become opaque and incomprehensible, borders shift or negate themselves. As a result new spaces are able to evolve, which open up other views onto the world, and such views out of these distorted angles allow the world to be understood and explained differently.
