Project Native Informant in collaboration with Deborah Schamoni Munich will present a group presentation in the Neumarkt Collaborations sector of Art Cologne. We will present works by DIS, GCC and Morag Keil.

The title of a 2016 text-based drawing by Morag Keil describes the debut collaboration between London’s Project Native Informant and Munich’s Deborah Schamoni. Of the same generation, both galleries were established in 2013.

The socially critical practices of Morag Keil and Judith Hopf mine the tropes and images of our lives, online and off, rendering them into drawings, sculptures and videos, often with tongue-in-cheek humour.

The collective DIS and the artist Eric Sidner uncannily address appearances. DIS creates airbrushed, digital stock-images that explore the tension between popular culture and institutional critique. This concern, as well as the mechanisms of the market and truth in advertising, is also present in the work of GCC. Working with materials like silicone and epoxy, Eric Sidner fashions glossy sculptures that simultaneously attract and repel. Like the images of DIS, his sculptures question the layers, and their stories, behind the surface-level.
