People who have saved this event:


Five years after the exhibition of Anselm Kiefer in Pantin and following his retrospective at the Centre Pompidou in 2016, Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac presents a new series of works by the artist in Paris


The exhibition, titled Für Andrea Emo, will feature a selection of more than twenty medium-sized and monumental paintings as well as three sculptures exploring the theme of Kiefer's memory sedimentation. These showcases, which show a spiritual connection between different elements, are as many fossils or artefacts uncovered, as many micro-fictions to decipher. The paintings, for their part, reflect the artist's long-standing interest in the ideas of destruction and regeneration in an entirely new way

Philosophical and literary references have always been instrumental to understand Anselm Kiefer’s practice. The exhibition is dedicated to Andrea Emo (1901-1983), an Italian philosopher whose nihilist thinking has fuelled the development of his work. A solitary thinker who has chosen the path of reclusion and self-exclusion from the academic world, Andrea Emo is an important figure in new metaphysics.
