Johan Lorbeer's Magic ( art now )

Johan Lorbeer is a German artist concerned with phenomena of perception. His performances are caught on the borderline between image and presentation and they perturb us through their apparent incompatibility with our spacial experiences. The artist develops positions in space which lead to surreal alienation of everyday situations. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg and became famous in the past few years because of his “Still-Life” Performances, which took place in the public area. His installations includes “Working Class Heroe” and “Tarzan Standing Leg”, which are famous in Germany. Several of these performances feature Lorbeer in an apparently impossible position such as a street cleaner standing horizontally out from a wall high above the street, or standing in mid-air ‘leaning’ against a wall with one hand in Cairo, Egypt in November 2008.
