Richard Saltoun Gallery announces an exhibition of works by Hans-Peter Feldmann (b. 1941), recognised as one of the pioneering conceptual artists' from the '70s. The exhibition, drawn exclusively from a single private collection, focuses on Feldmann's key artistic practice of the time: the hand-coloured Xeroxes. Feldmann's work from this period is rarely exhibited, in part due to his decision to retire as an artist in 1979, which led him to either give away or destroy his work. Feldmann spent the next ten years in silence, running a souvenir shop in Düsseldorf and a mail order shop for thimbles. He returned to his career as an artist in 1989, after the curator Kasper König persuaded him to exhibit in a gallery again, and his reputation has grown in strength, as the first generation of conceptual art has been re-examined.
This exhibition will be accompanied by a presentation of drawings and photographs by Renate Bertlmann.
