Presented by coGalleries, ‘Plakatief Goes Metropolis’, is German artist Pola Brändle’s solo exhibition displaying a selection of new works exploring and revealing the transformative nature of decay through her collaging of weathered and decomposing poster fragments.
Emerging from a fascination with photographing billboards, she was inspired to create her own collage/decollage work using posters collected from concerts, festivals, and other cultural events throughout her exploration of over 35 countries, spanning the United States, South America, the Middle East and Europe. Using these materials, she is able to form intricate layers of colours, textures and images, while combining these with her unique personal perspectives.
Born in Aachen, Germany, Brändle studied at the Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts in the Netherlands. Te artist is now based in Kreuzberg, Berlin, where she continues to produce her collage/decollage work. Brändle’s work has been the subject of several solo and group exhibitions throughout the world, including Spain, Russia, Turkey, Austria, Lebanon, Hungary, Iceland,
Switzerland, and the USA.
