Behrang Karimi, SPIT

The exhibition SPIT presents a series of paintings and works on paper by Iranian-born Cologne-based artist Behrang Karimi. Karimi’s practice transports to a dreamy dimension of unsettling scenes and slow contemplative moments inhabited by fictional characters. It is ironically visceral, deeply seducing, similar to a late-night conversation when language leaves space to the metaphorical. When figurative, it tells stories, which acquire significance in the observer, connecting to places and moments of affection.
