09.06.-16.06.2023 An Itch on my Neck – Nathanael Plantier & Zarina Stahnke

A visual essay on intrusion, finding its strength through the viewer’s eye. A multitude of states stiffened by an itch that burns, that floats behind my hair, above my shoulders and all around my chest. Your eyes go straight to my neck, attack it and distort its flesh for your own sake.

Nathanaël Plantier

Nathanaël Plantier (2002) Born in Paris, but currently based in Dresden, Nathanaël Plantier has developed an ensemble of works directly inspired from his experiences as a dancer. His pieces feature intimate depictions of tableaux focusing on the inner sensitivity of its subjects, with a constant search for movement. Originally working with pencils and gouache, he quickly switched to oil work where texture, density and colors clash on the canvases. @etudesolaire
