In Gladbeck he presents 10 paintings, each based on two charcoal drawings of celebrities in scandalous kissing scenes - Justin Bieber, Madonna, Britney Spears - as well as four small paintings of teen magazine covers .

Alongside installation shots, images of the art works and photographs by Henning Strassburger, the publication features an essay by Jeni Fulton and an interview between Henning Strassburger and Christian Malycha.

Henning Strassburger

His visual language of expressive marks, strokes and recurring motifs appear gestural, but are on closer inspection predetermined.

The artist lives and works in Berlin and Zurich.
