Christian Jankowski: The Frankenstein Set
London, 8 September – 30 September 2006
Lisson Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of three new film works, photographs and sculpture by Christian Jankowski opening Friday September 8th.
The product of a generation that grew up with the ubiquity of film and television, its inherently populist influence is evident throughout Jankowski’s work. Using various media formats, he involves a range of professionals as collaborators who often (sometimes inadvertently) participate in the very conceptualisation of the work. With Jankowski, there is as much emphasis on the journey as the destination, and the risks and chances inherent in his collaborations ultimately give surprising shape to the final works.
In this exhibition, Jankowski looks specifically at the horror film genre in relation to the academic theory it inspires, the fantasies of its audience, and the possibilities and limitations that he encounters as a visual artist working within it.Read more
