Abel Burger

Abel Burger (b. 1982, France) is a French artist, living and working in the Mediterranean fishing port of Port-Vendres in southern France.
Burger is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice ranges from oil pastel and drawing to video works and written essays. In Burger’s most recent work, she applies thick oil pastels on paper and balsa wood in an impasto-style to create grand, highly detailed architectural motifs. These works are inspired by her passion for ancient cultures and architectural spaces, and they explore concepts of individual mythologies in which ancient memories, energies, and beliefs come together to create a new system of images, narratives, and emotions which the artist terms ‘archaeologies of the future’.
Self-taught, Burger's interdisciplinary practice has since expanded to new formats, and is currently focused on her Art Brut drawings. Her work has been exhibited in numerous solo shows across Europe, including Musée d'art moderne, Collioure (2021) and Baull gallery, Berlin (2020), as well as group shows at DYS gallery, Brussels (2022) and Mason Fine Arts, Atlanta, USA (2021).
