Jakob Gilg's catalog Die Vermessung is published in conjunction with his solo exhibition Mercator at Kunstverein Rosenheim. Published by Verlag für Moderne Kunst, it covers the last eight years of Jakob Gilg's artistic production. His work is an attempt to approach the scales and perspectives of measuring reality. He explores and questions them in his paintings, sculptures and drawings. Lively curiosity and deep interest in philosophy, cultural history and natural sciences provide him with a wide spectrum for the reflections in which the artist himself becomes an explorer and surveyor of social and interpersonal processes.
