Harold Ancart´s first solo exhibition in Berlin, Eagle Mode, was presented at VW (VeneKlasen/Werner) in 2013.
The root of Harold Ancart´s practice lies in the temporal, transitional and immediate quality of drawing. The overall minimal character of his interventions reflects his close attention to the geometry of space, often explored in a series of works created with diverse materials such as oil sticks, pigments, soot, steel and concrete. The levels in the surface of the drawing leave
traces for the viewer to find a tension between beauty and emptiness, eruption and repetition. Ancart also generates a breach with the limitation of physical space by understanding it as a medium, using the space to distil the tension between the works.
