About

"I always wanted to be anarchistic and rebellious. It just never worked for me - it always backfired. When others got away with almost everything, I always was the one that had to pay his dues... So I turned to a much more subtle way of anarchism. I started to analyze structures intellectually - external structures as well as internal structures - took them apart, broke them down into little bits and pieces. The smaller the pieces got, the more abstract these structures and their interchanging systems got and then I was able to rearrange, redefine and move those little bits and pieces freely and use the structures to my liking, to put everything into new perspectives.

 

Vienna based artist Jonathan Berkh has actively worked as a contemporary artist in the fine and applied artist since 2000. His works have been displayed at Glow Eindhoven (2009), The Belvedere, Vienna (2004) and at Capital Bank Wien (2015). His career was interrupted between 2009 and 2015 due to family matters that requested his undivided attention, but he never stopped evolving creatively.

 

His work derives from his background as a dancer and contemporary jazz choreographer where his ideas and pieces were focused on the differences of perspectives of each "participant" - choreographer, dancer, audience - and how the choreography and surrounding external and internal structures - urban, artistic and mental - create a different experience in everyone depending on the members point of view in this flowing, constantly moving and changing complex system of bodies, spaces, structures, mind and soul. "One only can move freely when fully accepting the structures of technique, choreography, space and state of mind." The physical movement of body in dance is a very important part that Jonathan kept from this time and that he fully incorporates in his work as an artist.
