Gereon Krebber

Born in 1973, lives and works in Cologne

Worldwide exhibitions in galleries and museums, many grants and awards, (amongst others Kunstpreis Junger Westen, Wilhelm-Lehmbruck Stipendium), professor of the art academy Düsseldorf

Gereon Krebber is sculptor. He creates objects that can be called sculptural in a wider comprehension of the term. From various workaday material (cling film, concrete, balloons, polyurethane-foam, oat flakes or spray-paint) he succeeds to build strange beings. They seem to remind of familiar images of everyday life, from cultural or technical context, but at the same time they remain extremely strange.

Contradictory connections and odd proportions place these objects beyond the focus of the well-known.

The works of Krebber avoid clear-cut distinction and reference, clarifying that they are not aiming at transcendental meaning. With a proper portion of subversive humor, they target at our experience, how we sense simple things, not only the creatures made by the artist.
