Sebastian Buerkner – Chimera of M and recent works

17 Dec 2012 - 31 Jan 2013
Phoenix presents an exhibition of new and recent work by Sebastian Buerkner, one of the most exciting and innovative artists working with animation today.

Sebastian Buerkner’s intricate and starkly beautiful films are painstakingly drawn using computer software, creating layers and fragments of imagery, shape and colour.

Sebastian’s work explores the nature of film and moving image – its structure and language and the way it can alter our perceptions of space, time and the world around us.

In the Cube gallery, a 3D animated film The Chimera of M flashes between the real and surreal, whilst on the video screens in the cafebar That’s Your Dog tells the story of a life through a stream of snapshots. The exhibition continues with Realm Pins, a journey cut up and retold in a series of stripes.

Sebastian Buerkner trained as a painter but now works exclusively in digital animation. He has widely exhibited in solo and group shows internationally. Born in Germany, he lives and works in London.

Commissioned by FLAMIN Productions through Film London Artists’ Moving Image Network with funding from Arts Council England.  Supported by Phoenix and the Elephant Trust.
