At the Belvedere 21, the American artist Polly Apfelbaum will reveal the relationship between several of her large-scale installations for the very first time.


Her poetic holistic composition will enter into a dialogue with the open, sunlit architecture of the former World’s Fair pavilion.

Polly Apfelbaum’s multifaceted work can be described as searching for new artistic forms of expression and breaking down the barriers between sculpture, painting and installation. Interested in Bauhaus Modernism, Minimal Art, Abstract Expressionism and Pop Art, the artist combines techniques and materials from both fine art and arts and crafts. She experiments with ceramic, textiles, paper and handwoven carpets. Since the 1990s Apfelbaum has used the floor as a surface on which to present her Fallen Paintings. Her focused exploration of space, colour, form and materiality finds its logical progression in this show on the upper floor of the Belvedere 21. Subjects such as feminism and spirituality, quotations from the history of art, as well as references to popular prints and comics are intrinsic to Apfelbaum’s art, which is always open and articulated as an invitation to participate.
