Feldmann has exhibited in many major art venues worldwide, he was included in the Venice Biennale in 2009 and was awarded the prestigious Hugo Boss Art Prize in 2010.
Feldmann’s work is held in collections in the UK (Tate), the USA (Guggenheim, Hirschorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington), Denmark (Louisiana Museum) and Spain (MACBA, Museo Reina Sophia, Madrid). Hans-Peter is well known for appropriating objects and making astute interventions that are often humorous, and frequently barbed. Copies of old master paintings are revised and don red noses or incongruous tan lines: toys are used for their ability to cast unsettling shadows and versions of celebrated sculptures are luridly subverted – Michaelangelo’s David, for example.
This exhibition of Hans-Peter’s work at East GalleryNUA will be the first major showing of his creative output in the region.
