STEFANIE GUTHEIL - CHRISTOPHE DOUCET- "DON'T LOOK AT ME" 

24 OCTOBER - 21 DECEMBER 2019 

Sorry We're Closed brings together a selection of works by Berlin-based painter Stephanie Gutheil and French sculptor Christophe Doucet.

Stefanie Gutheil's painting questions social uniformity and seeks to reinstate an appreciation for weirdness, otherness and ambiguity. The unclassifiable, human/animal beings created to that end were much inspired, Gutheil says, by Hieronymus Bosch, David Hockney and Matisse.

Christophe Doucet folds dreams, tradition, anthropology and concepts of nature, as well as metamorphosis, into wooden sculptures that negotiate a material midpoint between our transient and singular experience of the real world, and the timelessness of a collective or personal imaginary world.

These two renderings of an imaginary world come together in the sensible balance they strike between candor and crudeness. Both artists worry about unfiltered subconsciousness when it comes to creating, through distinct media and semantics, their peculiar anthropomorphic forms and characters.
