Up-and-Coming Artist Ákos Ezer Inaugurates a Newly Reopened Paris Gallery With Fantastical Tableaux of Long-Limbed Men—See Them Here

 

“Ákos Ezer: Memories From the Future Paris + Online”
Through June 27 at Galerie Droste, Paris

 

What the gallery says: “The main protagonists in the Hungarian artist’s work are men with elongated limbs and bent postures, whose gestural movements evoke moments of falling. The artist invites the viewer to reconstruct his view of current social structures in his home country of Hungary and the personal efforts of everyday life associated with them.”

Why it’s worth a look: This show—Galerie Droste’s first solo exhibition of Hungarian artist Ákos Ezer (born 1989)—also marks the reopening of its Paris showroom. And what a way to revive the gallery’s activity. Ezer’s work draws on the kind of packed compositions, elongated limbs, and off-the-wall tableaux that have made Dana Schutz and Nicole Eisenman famous. But he brings his own acid-tinged, humorous touch. The Munich-based painter, who graduated from the Hungarian University of Fine Arts in 2014, doesn’t use models or photographs as the basis of his compositions, but instead draws on his own body and imagination. In this exhibition, he has also made a foray into equally funky ceramics.
