Janus Hochgesand

Final Cut – Livepainting Performance Ludwig Museum Koblenz / Part I

Janus Hochgesand (b. 1981 in Dierdorf; lives and works in Hamburg) describes his works as High Intensity Paintings—paintings whose form and content are condensed and feature a highly concentrated layering of materials.

The twelve unique pieces in the edition Final Cut were created during a live painting performance at the Ludwig Museum Koblenz, in which musicians and actors both witnessed and influenced the moment of creation. Hochgesand generously poured pigments onto the canvas and worked on them in repetitive cycles of application and removal. After the performance, the work was divided into twelve unique pieces of equal size.
