To Catch a Fish with a Song

Dienstag, Oktober 1st, 2019

To Catch a Fish with a Song: 1964–Today entsteht in Zusammenarbeit mit dem Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève. Mit rund fünfzig Werken liefert die umfassende Retrospektive in den KW einen Überblick über Hreinn Friðfinnssons Schaffen, das sich mittlerweile über ein halbes Jahrhundert erstreckt. Es ist zudem die erste institutionelle Einzelausstellung des isländischen Künstlers in Deutschland.

Hreinn Fridfinnsson

In the early 1970s, the Icelandic artist Hreinn Friðfinnsson (b. 1943, Iceland) placed an advert in a Dutch art magazine asking people to send him their secrets. By posing as a collector of secrets, the artist would, he thought, allay suspicions that he had any ulterior motive in using or revealing privileged information that might come his way. It is like something from a novel by José Saramago, or an urban myth or rumour. The secret, Fridfinnsson may be telling us, is that there isn’t one. His art, on the other hand, is an invitation to imagine that there might be. (here)

Mildred Thompson

Mildred Jean Thompson (March 12, 1936 – September 1, 2003)was an American artist who worked in the media of painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture and photography. She was also a writer and, beginning in 1987, was an associate editor for the magazine Art Papers in Atlanta, Georgia. Critics have related her art to West African textiles and Islamic architecture; they have also cited German Expressionism, music (both American jazz and classical European music) and Thompson’s readings in astronomy, spiritualism and metaphysics as important artistic influences.
