Galleries are open! MAKE IT NEWER! JANINA ROIDER @eigenart_lab 29.10.-28.11.20 _____ Book release @kerberverlag @parat.cc _____ In this new, monographic exhibition, the Munich- and Montalivet-based artist Janina Roider (b. 1986) transports gallery-goers to landscapes where the real and the fictive, actuality and dream, the aesthetics of advertising and the pain- ting manner of the Old Masters enter into a creative symbiotic relationship. _____ The exhibition’s title MAKE IT NEWER! is a reference to Roider’s Academy teacher Günther Förg, whose guiding principle and maxim “make it new” – a dictum borrowed from Ezra Pound, whose work Förg greatly admired – served also as the title of his trail-blazing solo exhibition of 2004, which formed part of the Ruhrfestspiele in Recklinghausen, Germany. Förg’s works – which were to prove seminal for Roider’s understanding of painting – stand apart, outside the painterly discourse of classical modernism. In his view, the painter should abandon his or her solitary and élitist position and the concomitant intellectual mindset framed in the specific period and should no longer have to offer a direct explanation of his or her selfhood and work. _____ The original motivational thrust of modern art is always its urge for renewal. In the formal language of Roider’s oeuvre, this impulse invariably leads to a fusing of digital and analogue processes. The basis for each work is a hand- drawing, which is digitalized – with her sculptures, this takes the form of a digital print – and then expanded almost in the mode of the Old Masters through successively “applied” layers. In the next step, the digital drawing is turned into a print (designed for serial reproduction) and so becomes Roider’s canvas and support.
