Olaf Breuning · Cold Animals at Nils Stærk Gallery presents new large drawings along with absurd and humorous hand-painted ceramic sculptures.
Since the beginning of his career Breuning has worked with drawings as a starting point for his photography, sculptures and film production. Drawing as an independent media in Breuning’s production has now for more than 10 years been an integrated part of his exhibitions, while his ceramic sculptures, like a tree-dimensional portrayal of his drawings, are new to the artistic practice.

Most recent institutional solo exhibitions include: NRW-Forum, Düsseldorf, Kunsthall Stavanger. Haifa Museum of Art, Zentrum Paul Klee, Bern, Palais de Tokyo, Paris and Kunstmuseum Luzern.
