mehr als einen vogel - 25 Jahre künstlerfreundschaft birdman und jens mohr

“The only way to have a friend is to be one.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson)

This quote by Ralph Waldo Emerson describes birdman Hans Langner’s and Jens Mohr’s friendship very well.

Everything started in 1992, when birdman Hans Langner had a free space in his studio in Bonn, Germany, left. The first to reply was Jens Mohr. They got along well immediately and inspire one another until today. The studio was a former bakery, where both processed all kinds of utensils and even made combined artworks, that now can be found in the Museum Dr. Guislain, Belgium. After two years, they dissolved their collective studio, because birdman decided to move to Hong Kong; they stayed in contact henceforth and didn’t lose sight of each other.

25 years after their first encounter, the gallery gugging presents an exhibition in honour of the two artist friends. The title of the exhibition “more than a bird – 25 years of artistic friendship birdman and jens mohr” came from their common stay in Malta. With a twinkle in one’s eye refering to the bird-motif, that for both is an artistic theme, but also to their creative urge, that is unstoppable when working together around the world. Especially working together in many different places and being in need of harmony connects. This causes a downright creative urge, to describe it in birdman’s words: “It feels like fulfilment, an undertow! Sometimes we are working the whole day, 12, 14 hours and don’t do anything more than that. We enrich and compliment each other very well. ”

There will be the possibility to witness the creative process of the two artists and to get inspired in the birdman studio in Vienna from 27 November to the 2 December under the title “Creative urge”.
