KATHARINA GROSSE AT MUSEUM WIESBADEN
At Museum Wiesbaden, Katharina Grosse (*1961) is exhibiting an extensive collection of her work on paper for the first time.Grosse paints the world as it could be if were to transcend its boundaries. Her paintings ask us how we want to live, how a world might look, in which the unfamiliar and unexpected take on radically experimental form. The surfaces of her works are torn, their uniformity lost. Folds transform homogeneity to multiplicity. Vastly imbricated planes manifest openness and fluctuation, synchronicity and parity. The works featured in this exhibit exemplify Grosse’s explorative use of color to challenge material constraints, so that even trees transform under her artistic vision to become something new. Whether installation, canvas or paper, the urgent question remains, how do spaces look that do not reify the world as a fixed referent but, instead, set it in motion, reverberating it like a membrane, until nothing remains in its place – not even the viewer? The exhibit encompasses works dating from 1987 to the present selected intuitively by Grosse herself. The inclusion of works on paper foregrounds the parallels to her panel and spatial works. The exhibit offers visitors penetrating insight into the artist’s decades of exploration and research.
