BODIES AND BONES BREAKING UNDER IDEAS OF PERFECTION, AND EACH AND EVERY ONE OF US IS JUST A FRACTURED FACE TRYING TO PREDICT THE FUTURE.

WE ARE ALL ARTISTS, WE ARE ALL HOLY, WE ARE ALL THE BEAUTIFUL EMBODIMENT OF SOCRATES DRINKING CHAMPAGNE.


BIO
The Nowegian-Israeli artist duo Johan Reisang (b. 1984) and Ela Buria (b. 1982) lives and works in Berlin.

Reisang and Buria seek to express the world as they see and experience it in an authentic and unique visual language. A world of opposites, arguments, whims and colors.

Reisang’s and Buria’s works – pastels, drawings, and prints – are regularly exhibited internationally. Their signature is the Hebrew letter "alef" associated with Ela Buria's name, and "R" attached to Johan Reisang's name.
