Abel burger is a French painter born in 1982. they have been part of the Parisian underground scene as an author of texts on gender and identity and as a video artist. In summer 2018, they chose to devote their work to making portraits of individuals met on social media in a project called “Lost and found”, carried out at the Berlin Art Institute. The question of the intimate is the central axis of their work and it can be found as much in their drawings as in the spontaneous texts that accompany them.

Her recent art residency at Instinct allowed them to engage with the community at Village Berlin and more broadly with the city, which now also serves as a laboratory for their creations. Deepening their work on intimacy with hybrid creations about people, “Beautiful Weirdos” is part of the continuity of their research.

They just exhibited on a new project called “Chasing Spirits”, in l'ISBA gallery in Perpignan.
