'Defining Lines'

Marcus Neustetter at Gallery AOP

The trajectory from Neustetter’s interest in the aerial perspective and his artworks exploring the digital Google Earth trace, the hand-made mark has become a natural extension through his drawings. Conceptually his shift has also been to start looking at the meaning of the marks representing the aerial view. What do they stand for, what do they define?

The artworks on the exhibition Defining Lines, attempt to imbue the mark with the kind of real world impact that a line on a territorial map has.

Abstracting and isolating the line is as much about the escape of the realities of borders of separation and zones of conflict as it is about contemplating the line itself and the spaces it creates. What the line divides and what the spaces are that it separates is only presented to the viewer through the titles of works like Wall I and II, No-mans-land, and the series of country names of places of conflict.

20 September - 18 October
