Be part of the work

In the past few years, Goffer's work has incorporated installations and, more recently, painting. Key issues like space, architecture, scale, and the observer's relationship to the work, are vital threads throughout his art. Recurring themes in his work are also the everyday, social and political challenges of so many different people, interests, cultures and religions coexisting together.

In these recent works, the black foreground is silhouetted like a cutout memory of a skyline. An undefined natural or urban landscape sits against the background, the whole representing a cosmic space that evolves powerfully behind the straight horizontal line.

The works are concerned with generating, formally and metaphorically, a more comprehensive view of human relations towards space and monumentality. Goffer's engages with the silence of the history of place, where only the structure remains and the dramatic events have already vanished. met Amit Goffer during his very first solo exhibition in Germany FACING IN TO OUT THE VOID in RAUM, an independent space in Düsseldorf/Oberkassel, invented and run by Matthias Erntges.
