Lukas Bury: You Look Like a Viking
In his exhibition "You look like a viking" Lukas Bury explores the creation of identity and what it means to be an immigrant and a man of many nations. Where is home and what does
it mean? 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.
