Lukas Bury: You Look Like a Viking

30 April, 202222 May, 2022

Through the making of paintings, accompanied by writing – both, external as a generator of discourse, but also embedded into the surface of the canvas, Lukas Bury analyses cultural contexts, historical narratives and modern-day virtual iconoclasm. With the incorporation of peculiar perspectives, his motifs tackle pertinent political issues and depict the inner strife of a second-generation immigrant, who became a global citizen after being born into a Western-European country.

“I will never be as organized as a German,
I will never be spirited as a Pole,
I wore socks and sandals for the first time in Iceland,
Someone might have told me that I look like a Viking,
I will never be one,
I won‘t be relaxed as an Italian,
Patience won‘t be my strongest side,
So I won‘t say þetta reddast,

But was born on the 5th,

A German one in English,
A German one in Polish,
So, what accent do I have in German?
Our cat, which isn´t even our,
Has a name which isn´t even his real one,
I missed painting big paintings,
As I missed Lithuania,
I will never be Ragnar Kjartansson,
But where the fuck did he film Death is elsewhere?”

Lukas studied in the MA program at the Listaháskóli Íslands, the Hochschule für Bildende Künste in Braunschweig and the Accademia di Belle Arti di Brera in Milan.
Bury exhibited in numerous group shows i.
