Night Shift_Juliane Hundertmark

A theatrical display of three bodies of work that reveal the dark comedy of consumerism through distorted depictions of an imagined reality. Natural Behavior will be on view July 20 – August 31st, 2019 with an opening Saturday, July 20th, from 6-9pm.

In this exhibition she combines her series "Pool Paintings", "Road Trip", and "American Diner” to playfully critique cultural trauma, by heavily incorporating familiar settings for  Hollywood personalities. Temporarily occupied spaces for a narrative preserves a fantasy, acting as a stage for an inexhaustible desire for seeking pleasure. These contorted dreamscapes coincide with destroying perceptions of Western culture’s influence on manufactured nostalgia and abstracted truisms. Prominently inspired by George Grosz’s character works during the Dada movement, Hundertmark embraces the freedom of impersonating reality with underlying despair and emotion hidden under the skin.
