The show brings together three distinct series of
recent drawings by the Munich based artist.

About

Kuhl’s 'unoriginal sin' series deals with vulnerability and loss. The recurring rainbow—a motif we associate with enchantment, harmony, happiness— however, offers a hopeful note. Although intensely personal, the drawings from the ‘unoriginal sin’ series suddenly seem so political due to their rainbow and wall symbolism.

The 'neighbors in space' series ventures deeper into the brain and reimagines synapses, the links between nerve cells which function as communication centers. Adept if it comes to scientific imagery, Kuhl retains some characteristic neuronal anatomy while reinventing everything else; shoe pairs, opposed couples, or amoebic structures are just a few associations.

In her 'domestic textiles' series, Julia Kuhl combines commonplace household textile patterns with text. Sometimes banal, sometimes cryptic, the text adds a layer of ambiguity to familiar patterns.
