Harris Lieberman is pleased to announce Here We Stand, Lost in Wonder a two-person exhibition by Bernd Ribbeck and Simon Dybbroe Møller.

The artists present a humble show about the grandness of it all.

Coming from very different points of departure the two artists explore painterly notions of abstraction and gesture. Bernd Ribbeck’s icon-like paintings seem as if in limbo between pure metaphysics and cool knowledge. Simon Dybbroe Møller’s work, on the other hand, depends on the logic of language to arrive at what could be described as an abstraction of thought.

As if playing a distorted version of musical chairs the two artists sit down between the chairs or simply keep running.

Bernd Ribbeck was born in 1974 in Cologne. He graduated from the Kunstakademie Düsseldorf and currently lives and works in Berlin. His work has been exhibited at the Bonner Kunstverein, the Bielefelder Kunstverein and the Kunsthalle Düsseldorf. This summer he will be included in Manifesta in Trentino. This is his first exhibition in New York.

Simon Dybbroe Møller was born in 1976 in Aarhus, Denmark. He currently lives and works in Frankfurt am Main where he attended the Städelschule. He has had recent solo exhibitions at the Aarhus Kunstbygning; westlondonprojects, London and the Kunstmuseum Thun. He has also been in group exhibitions such as Martian Museum of Terrestrial Art at the Barbican Gallery, London; and Made in Germany at the Kunstverein Hannover. He will be included in the 2008 Torino Triennale and in 2009 will have solo exhibitions at the Kunstverein Hanover and the Kunstverein Frankfurt.
