Johan Lorbeer is a German artist concerned with phenomena of perception. His performances are caught on the borderline between image and presentation and they perturb us through their apparent incompatibility with our spacial experiences. The artist develops positions in space which lead to surreal alienation of everyday situations. He studied at the Academy of Fine Arts Nuremberg and became famous in the past few years because of his “Still-Life” Performances, which took place in the public area.
