Stephen Cone Weeks Was uns trägt The Place You Can’t Get To

What is it that sustains us in life? The German title of the publication and eponymous exhibition seems to pose a question to which the drawings do not provide an answer, ambiguous scenes wrapped in layers of glass like fruit in jelly: visible, inviting, but unreachable. »The place you can’t get to.«
The space behind the glass has always interested the Canadian artist Stephen Cone Weeks. With his drawings on glass, he tells stories he does not know, whose spaces of action remain closed to him, and whose narrative »in the dark« both torments and delights him. On a glass stage, objects and allegorical figures point to connections that ultimately remain unfathomable in their complexity and infinite interpretability, leaving the viewer with a sense of longing, but also hope.
