RUPERT JÖRG

If one tries to discover an overriding interest in the works of Rupert Jörg, one encounters pictures. On images that are not created in strictly traditional technique. They are processed, whether moved or not, previously salvaged from the countless meshes of the World Wide Web and all the flood of images around us. Banal product or news photos seem to be enhanced by the way they are presented. In the videos we see staged pictures or mockumentaries; Places are captured by often shrill scenes, so that the exaggerated narrative points beyond the suspected one-track confrontation with an individually experienced episode at first glance. Exaggeration and accumulation are the working methods that Rupert Jörg uses for the appropriated electronic flood of images. On the screen, for example, flicker sometimes pixel small scraps, only delayed to recognize. An uncontrollable porridge, visual overfeeding, blockage. Pixels are equivalent, freely assignable .... not only paper is patient. Exaggeration and almost perverse accumulation we find in the long-term project on selfie: A barrage of thousands of real photos of minds, portraits, and always in the foreground Rupert Jörg, eyes and mouth wide open - whether cry or frozen Feixen is left open. Here, as with most of the work, at least a pinch of humor flashes: smiling or laughing or not at all, each to his liking.
