Casado Santapau is pleased to open the 4th solo exhibition of Berlin artist Gerold Miller at the gallery on April 11th, 2024.

Gerold Miller (*1961) has been exploring questions of imagery, sculpture and space in his artistic work for 35 years. The setting of art as place and presence plays an important role in the artist's oeuvre. It is about the viewer's perspective on themselves and how they position themselves in space. The fusion of art object and viewer becomes an ever new process and makes simultaneity an essential factor. With his oeuvre, the artist succeeds in uniting opposing parameters such as space and time, stillness and movement, subject and object in one work of art.

A similar interpretation of this setting can also be found in the work “The Studio” by Gustave Courbet (1855), which occupied Gerold Miller from an early age: The relationship between private and public, reality and art, and the studio as a place of intellectual encounters and dialogue described in the painting remain essential elements of the artist's work to this day.

With this presentation, Miller is consciously connecting to his last exhibition at Casado Santapau, in which he exhibited his works in transport crates as if in a studio. In the current exhibition, the sculptures (Verstärker) are also shown in this way alongside the instant vision. A new group of works from the set series will also be presented for the first time in this context.

In this exhibition, various minimalist-conceptual approaches to the theme of image-sculpture-space come together, which are broken up by the repetition, by the staging of the works in the gallery and by the moderate dynamics of the new set. The three different groups of works bring together various decentralised levels of spatial experience and create a field of tension in which they can be read both as a whole and separately.

Gerold Miller's work is represented in important collections and museums worldwide, such as the Nationalgalerie Berlin, Hamburger Kunsthalle, Lehnbachhaus Munich, New Orleans Museum of Art, Museo di Arte Moderna Bologna, Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Humlebaek.
