Construct and (Various) Disasters of Democracy
Galerie Dukan, Leipzig, Germany

Opening: April 13, 2018 /4-8pm



Galerie Dukan - Leipzig is very pleased to announce its next exhibition, the solo show Construct and (Various) Disasters of Democracywhich is dedicated to new works by artist Duncan Wylie.
Born in Zimbabwe, Duncan Wylie lives and works today in London. If during 20 years he flourished and made his career in France, his works are nevertheless positioned at the crossroads of his own origins and those who work his imagination. Keen on history of art, his work is yet nourished by a physical dimension, even an African metaphysics. In a way, and since he does not inherit, strictly speaking, from no school of painting, the artist is built empirically, in reaction to what he lives and experiences.

La Galerie Dukan - Leipzig est très heureuse d’annoncer sa prochaine exposition, le solo show Construct and (Various) Disasters of Democracy qu’elle consacre à des œuvres inédites de l’artiste Duncan Wylie.
Duncan Wylie est né au Zimbabwe, il vit et travaille aujourd’hui à Londres. Si, pendant 20 ans il s’épanouit et fait carrière en France, ses œuvres se positionnent néanmoins au carrefour des origines qui lui sont propres et de celles qui travaillent son imaginaire. Féru d’histoire de l’art, son œuvre est cependant nourrie d’une dimension physique voire d’une métaphysique africaine. D’une certaine manière, et puisqu’il n’hérite à proprement parler d’aucune école de peinture, l’artiste se construit de manière empirique, en réaction à ce qu’il vit et expérimente.
