Abel Burger lives and works between Berlin and Port-Vendres: the capital that we know and a small town by the sea where she anchored after long journeys.
For a while, in Paris and the United States, she was part of the underground scene, recognized for the originality and spontaneity of his writing (poetry) but also for the quality of his short films.
She does not attend any art school. Autodidact therefore; Without ignoring the forms and the rhetoric, she stays away from the contemporary art scene and refocuses her work in a visual space. Abel works hard, daily, on free canvas or on paper, affirming a very personal expression that makes painting and writing coexist.
BORN TO BE WILD.
Abel works hard and on music. Excluding any categorization, she
twirls like a free electron, between paintings, drawings and texts.
Abel digs the intimate and the opaque space of the unspoken, axes that articulate his work. She tells the lives of others. Recently, during an artistic residency (Berlin Art Institute,The Village Berlin), she spent several months producing portraits of people met on social networks: Facebook, Tinder (Lost and Found projects followed by "Beautiful Weirdos").
QUEER / Weirdo; Abel comes and goes in the world, asks the questions of gender, masculinities, identity, questioning the brutality and violence of a world in / of mutation.
Solicited by L'Isba for a solo show, Abel seizes the opportunity of this card
white to refocus with modesty a very personal hunt that involves principles
elements of survival : hunt down, expel, kill ghosts wandering their painful silhouettes but also preserve some tamed demons seized in the beauty of the moments she lived.
