Manuel Abendroth / LAb[au]

Along with Els Vermang and Jérôme Decock, Abendroth is a member of the Brussels-based studio LAb[au]. Their artworks share characteristics with conceptual art, system art and concrete art – though actualized with contemporary materials, techniques and formats. They have a strong tendency towards a reductionist, serial and elementary language, manifested in their use of colour, geometry, light and motion. Manuel worked during several years as exhibition coordinator at the Deichtorhallen (Hamburg) where he worked with internationally renowned artists among which Hanne Darboven, Mingelangelo Pistoletto and Gerhard Merz before starting his own art practice in 1996.
