We are delighted to welcome Caroline Gamon from January to March 2019 to stay and work at basis within the framework of Air_Frankfurt and CEAAC (Strasbourg). Caroline Gamon (*1985) will open the doors of her AIR_Frankfurt guest studio on this evening and give an insight into her current projects.
Caroline Gamon's artistic work oscillates between painting and illustration. Influenced by her regular work for publishers and newspapers, Gamon's painting practice is also inspired by texts, events, journalistic and sociological facts. This transformation from the factual to the painterly allows her to move away from the original motifs, which are often close to the contrast between nature and culture and the question of place and borders. Gamon arranges the resulting pictorial-graphic excerpts into a new strange universe, half real - half magical, in which time seems to be suspended.
The AIR_Frankfurt program was founded by the city of Frankfurt’s department for culture in 1990 with the goal to foster the exchange between culturally interested and active cities.
Since 2016 Air_Frankfurt has been supervised by the production and exhibition platform basis e.V.
