You are cordially invited to attend the opening of the fourth solo exhibition by Anna Oppermann, entitled “The picture stands on the window sill“.
Following two wonderful exhibitions at Kunsthalle Bielefeld as well as at the Carpenter Centre in Boston, which focused on the development within Oppermann's oeuvre to expand from two dimensional works into three dimensional installations. Both exhibitions premiered early works and ensembles of the late 1960s and early 1970s.
The title „The picture stands on the window sill“ references the poetic ambivalence of Oppermann's practice and points out the correlation between the single image and the ensembles, between the body and the gaze and the experience of the environment. The quality of Oppermann's draftmanship is the basis of Oppermanns' reflections on normative aspects and conventional framing which develops into a multi-dimensional perspective of the later large scale ensemble work.
The installation of the ensembles were interpreted by Anna Schäffler.
The exhibition is accompanied by a series of talks at the gallery which will be announced soon.
The catalogue of the Carpenter Centre show will be published during the course of the exhibition and can be ordered through the gallery.
