Tanya Leighton, Berlin and Bureau, New York present a solo exhibition, WIWI FOOD, by the Berlin-based artist, Jonas Lipps. The exhibition marks the second half of an exchange between the two galleries, which began with Julia Rommel’s exhibition, Twin Bed, in Berlin.

Lipps’s works often take up predominant systems of social order: schools, shopping centers, transportation networks, nation states and jails. These environments of control find themselves permeated by spoofs on their branding and design, malapropisms, anachronisms and associative inventions. Similarly, the pieces in Lipps’s latest body of work on view at Bureau are painted, drawn and collaged using both existing images and surreal interventions. Lipps repurposes paper napkins, the seals of correctional facilities and advertisements, placing them within environments that are charged with freudian spillages, libidinal utterances and personal preoccupations.

Jonas Lipps was born in Freiburg/Breisgau, Germany. He now lives and works in Berlin. His work has been exhibited worldwide, with recent exhibitions including Tanya Leighton, Berlin; Gallery Celine, Glasgow; LISZT, Berlin; Paradise Garage, Los Angeles; Galerie der Stadt Schwaz; The Prague Biennial; and Kunstverein Bremerhaven.
