About the artist

Be J. Birza often uses acids and other substances that cause aging processes. Chemical reactions bring about oxidation, weathering and discolouration and thus reinforce the suggestion of impermanence. Be J. Birza effortlessly succeeds in convincingly highlighting the expressiveness of ‘poor art’ years after the heyday of “Arte Povera”. He underlines that the history of worn-out things always remains interesting and in fact is not subject to dating or erosion. His kimono’s are made from found objects and lead sheets.
