“It’s always about the painting.” (Klaus-Martin Treder)
With Temptation II, the Jette Rudolph Gallery is pleased to present an exhibition of recent paintings and installations by Klaus-Martin Treder. Following his solo exhibition, Temptation*, at the Stadtgalerie (Town Gallery) in Saarbrücken in 2013, these artworks can now be viewed in a new arrangement and presentation format designed specifically for the location in Berlin.
Klaus-Martin Treder’s work (born in 1961 in Biberach/Riss, lives and works in Berlin & Stuttgart) can be grouped into three main categories: paintings, objects/installations and posters. All three media share one thing: Treder’s focus on questions addressing the aesthetics of material – a focus that goes beyond questions of conscious figurative or narrative intention, that explores approaches to site-specific presentation formats, and where the painting that is made of material and form is always at the center.
