Using black ink on paper, Hammer illustrates and formulates “Tasks” to the observer in a combination of picture and accompanying text such as “Try to force a person to his knees by looking at them” or “Mimic the sound of a storm wind with your mouth. And use it to sound a landscape through hidden loudspeakers”. With his animation for vision and action, Paule Hammer creates dialogical works of art between the self and its environment, between the intimate inside and the representative outside, and never stops asking questions. But there is always respect for individual fears, doubts and failures.

The exhibition thus follows on from the premiere of the artist’s first large-scale sculpture entitled “KAPUTTNIK” at the Museum der Bildenden Künste in Leipzig. The 16m high sphinx-like figure, which is composed of a lion’s body and the face of Klaus Kinski’s, has only recently been opened and will serve as a venue for performances with a wide variety of guests and actions until May 2020. Here, as in the “Tasks”, common worldviews, life goals and certainties are questioned. On Dec. 12, 2019 “Banana pithecus” will be the opening event to invite visitors to a meditative journey through time to the common ancestors of man and banana under the guidance of a hypnotist.

Paule Hammer (born 1975 in Leipzig) studied at the Hochschule für Grafik und Buchkunst in Leipzig (1997-2002) and there completed his studies with the master student of Prof. Sighard Gill (2004).

The artist received the working scholarships of the Kunstfonds Bonn (2007) and the Kunstfonds des Freistaates Sachsen (2010) as well as the working scholarship of the Kulturstiftung des Freistaates Sachsen (2018).
