FRANKFURT, GERMANY.- The gallery Eva Winkeler presents the artists Gert and Uwe Tobias in their second show at the gallery together with Jürgen Krause. The show at the gallery displays separate works by each artist as well as one central joined piece. The rather conceptual working artist Jürgen Krause measured in 18 points of cartographic means the way from his studio until one certain point in the gallery. This point is the position which serves as the show title (50°06'36,40"N 8°40'42,24"O) but will also feature one big installation by Gert and Uwe Tobias. The object will somehow represent materials the artists use for their process of woodcutting but also additional found pieces of every day usage, altogether the object will reach from the floor until the ceiling of the gallery show room. The cartographic position and its way from the studio of Jürgen Krause can be seen in a separate reduced map only highlighting the measured way the artists took from his working place until the point where the sculpture is located. Furthermore Jürgen Krause is showing 7 framed drawings on paper - these drawings look on the first sight like mathematical lined papers from a scrap book. But on the second view one will see that all the lines are drawn by hand in such an exact way, that they first resemble like mathematical lined papers. On the opposite wall of these seven drawings, the artist is projecting one drawing on a large scale produced directly on the wall. By doing this Jürgen Krause is referring to an old method of wall painting.

The invitation for this exhibition is based on a woodcut, by Gert and Uwe Tobias and is also issued in the fair. Date, name of the artists, the gallery and the exhibition are part of this work. Complementary colours and the fine production process of woodcarving support the topics: tradition, art and culture of Gert and Uwe Tobias, and through its content the position of radical reality as Jürgen Krause shows it in his detailed works. Therefore, the piece displays a mixture of the related positions of the meshing artists.

Jürgen Krause works on material- and existential borderline experiences. Gert and Uwe Tobias construct and deconstruct reality and narration with the help of different media what is also represented in this crafted and quoting work. The perception and functioning of both artists collaborate in this exhibition and let order and disorder collapse.
