Abel Burger France, b. 1982

Abel Burger is an interdisciplinary artist whose practice ranges from oil pastel and drawing to video works and written essays. Strongly influenced by the artistic movements of the 1990s, Burger was a central member of the Parisian underground scene, authoring texts on gender and identity, and developing video work series. Burger's interdisciplinary practice has since expanded to new formats, including highly detailed oil pastels on paper and balsa wood. Inspired by a passion for ancient cultures and architectural spaces, these works 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' 


Burger’s work has been exhibited in numerous solo shows across Europe and the US, including Musée d'Art Moderne, Collioure (2021), Baull Gallery, Berlin (2020), and group shows at Wondering People, London (2022) and Mason Fine Arts, Atlanta, USA (2021). Burger lives and works in Port-Vendres, France.
