MÄNNER SOLLEN FRAUEN WOLLEN
May 19 - July 16, 2011
Our fourth exhibition features new canvases by Katharina Grosse. For the past two decades Grosse has consistently explored the possibilities of painting, expanding from the canvas into the surrounding space, painting and spraying on walls, floors, and ceilings. The context extends from inside to outside, and includes everyday objects such as furniture, books, and clothing, which she turns into carriers for her images. Like Grosse’s installations and three-dimensional works, her canvases cannot be comprehended in a single glance. Rather, multi-layered perspectives open up through the phenomenological experience. Different levels emerge and exist next to each other, parallel and equal, uniting to form a polyphonic, open-ended order.
A monograph about these recent canvases is being published in May by Distanz Verlag, Berlin: Katharina Grosse. Eat Child Eat, featuring a text by Ulrich Wilmes. Starting on May 25, 2011, the Kunstmuseum Bonn will be showing a large painting in an outdoor exhibition.
