What is the smallest number of brush- strokes needed to tell a story? And why do we look at paintings at all, when film and photographs show us the world as it actually appears? John Kørner creates images that show us the world not as it looks in reality, but how it feels inside as feelings, thoughts and perceptions.
John Kørner is one of the most remarkable artists in Denmark today. The exhibition in the PillarHallatBrandts is a total installation of his latest works. Installed as illuminated fields of colour in an otherwise dark and shapeless space, the images combine to tell a cohesive story. Here, John Kørner’s solitary figures appear in dreamlike and silent landscapes – perhaps these landscapes are the future ruins of the world’s great cities?
