Pictures from Alleland by Boris Born: 27 July to 13 August 2017
Boris Born is a German born artist based in London. His paintings are abstraction, relating to both nature and the use of materials. He incorporates “found materials” along with the use of various types of paint. Alleland: ‘Alle’ generally translates into ‘all-‘ and ‘everyone’ but also into: ’empty’, ‘used-up-‘ or ‘ burnt out-‘. ‘Land’ translates into ‘country’ or ‘land’. Alleland is where the end is over and another end has begun, where everything falls, where nothing can be understood, where there is no landscape and no life anymore or anything that can be understood as such.
