In 2017, the Berlin artist couple from Germany Römer + Römer traveled to Nevada to take part in the Burning Man event a cultural event that it set at Black Rock City, a temporary city which is located in the desert of Nevada exists only for eight days. The event, which features hundreds of interactive art installations, art cars, and performances, culminates in the burning of the “Man,” a 40-feet tall effigy that is the centerpiece of the celebration.
 
The two artists selected some of their photos of the event and used them to create a series of large-format paintings that strikingly capture the desert festival’s carnivalesque spirit and nighttime scenery with fire and artificial lights. Broken down into single color dots and fields, the motifs regain their shape only in the viewer’s mind.
 
Nina Römer (born as Nina Tangian in Moscow in 1978) and Torsten Römer (born in Aachen in 1968) met while studying painting at Kunstakademie Düsseldorf. Their joint works often focus on big cultural events where people come together to experience moments of transcendence.
