Omnipresence of the human figure and “comings and goings” between matter and presence; in this world, as much as a few strokes suffice to give life to a being or even an inanimate object, their absorption or dissolution in the space of the matter often seems imminent. The young German artist offers a sophisticated game of appearance and disappearance, which illustrates the capacity of matter to hold its own narration or even suggest a fluctuating frontier between reality, dream and imagination. Poetry meets humour, as in Getting undressed as much as possible via jumping up and down (Soviel wie möglich ausziehen durch auf- und abhüpfen). All of this is carried by a most refined palette that ranges from a deaf obscurity to pastel tones.

Variations of pinks of a silhouette that moves forward in a nocturnal background: Sunsetter… An enigmatic title that is rich in meaning – impossible to translate – and quite emblematic of Marlon Wobst’s new works. If lucid observations of easy living existences were predominant in his work until now, a certain gravity seems to have taken over Marlon Wobst’s world.

RELAX. Unwind… Whatever happens happens. Why worry ? Nothing will change anyway. Why bother ? Dance, dive, you only live once. And you know, giving yourself a treat won’t hurt. With RELAX, Marlon Wobst asserts his ability to work as a fiercely efficient and sophisticated master puppeteer.

Masses of bodies, flesh, compressions, accumulations, contemplative and contemplated bodies – L’Oasi brings the modern tribe together in the gourmand, knowing and voyeuristic eye of Marlon Wobst: Games, pantie intimacy, hedonism, movements, mundane and absurd poses – you name it – everything goes, everything is shown… The title of the exhibition – L’Oasi – the eponymous name of an Italian beach where the artist often went when he was younger becomes a metaphor for existence.

For his first solo exhibition in France, the painter Marlon Wobst chose the suitable title Starter, after an eponymous work showing a runner on the verge of starting. There, the everyday activities and elements represented slip towards a dreamlike universe – a world where the substance is that of painting.
