Martin Eder’s new body of work is inhabited by ghostly hybrid creatures. Blurring the transition between humans, animals, and supernatural beings, Eder explores the motif of the boundary and its transgression in his oil paintings. His subjects allude to an encounter with the underworld and recall Dante’s Inferno. A symbolism that both reflects a (post-)pandemic unease and hints at the encounter of reality and illusion. Eerie and fascinating at the same time, the paintings outline a space marked by the collapse of a shared perception. In addition to studio insights and paintings, the volume includes an elucidating text by art historian Thomas Elsen as well as a conversation between Eder, Damien Hirst and Tim Marlow, director of London’s Design Museum.
