Guillaume Daeppen presents the exhibition WARGANIC by Andy Leuenberger. The core of the exhibition is the presentation of the cartoon book Planet of the Organic, containing about 100 cartoons and absurd drawings on world and self-improvement. Further developments of the serie Making Space - abstract ink-drawings based on imagery of war, shown at Daeppen in 2014 and at the New York Book Fair in September 2015 - are presented. Screen-prints, comics and art-books are also on display.

Andy Leuenberge
r is an Artist & Cartoonist, born in Basel in 1972 and has been living in Berlin for the past 15 years. Themes are deconstructed in series of drawings, with ink on paper and then collected in book-form. These are usually self-published under the label Choke Book. A wide range of topics - from social satire to comic-genre-pieces to experimental explorations of the medium - are covered. Form is content driven so a presentation of several works by Andy Leuenberger may leave the impression of having seen a group exhibition.

Andy Leuenberger had exhibitions in Berlin, Linz, Lucerne, Vienna and New York
