2-TIMES  Art
Adrian Ghenie,
Jungles in Paris
@ Galerie
Thaddaeus Ropac

It is never the
motif that interests
me but always
the texture of my
subjects and how
the transformation
of this texture over
time can tell a
secret narrative...

The exhibition: 
Is the Romanian-
born, Berlin-based 
Ghenie's second 
solo with Ropac, 
featuring a new body
of works produced
by the artist across 
a trio of mediums, 
including paintings, 
collages on paper, 
and a group of
large-scale grisaille
charcoal drawings. 

Title reference: 
Jungles in Paris’ 
was borrowed from
the Henri Rousseau
exhibition at Tate
Modern in 2005-06, 
intending to signify
the visual tension
created by the
juxtaposition of two
seemingly disparate
sophisticated urban
Paris versus the exotic
wild untethered jungle.
