Hanna Nitsch – »Emotion Codes (Das Andere ist unrettbar verloren)«

We are again very pleased to present Hanna Nitsch in a solo exhibition that will open in August. After her successful institutional shows at the Städtische Galerie Wolfsburg and the project space of the Kunstmuseum Wiesbaden, new significant works will be on view that provide an overview of her current work. Identity is at the heart of her oeuvre, which she explores with basic questions: “Who am I?” “How much of what I am is dependent on social influences?” “Are there emotional patterns that we follow?” To this end, Hanna Nitsch has developed a very personal, intense visual language that incorporates medical and scientific elements as well as quotations from the high fashion industry. At the same time, Hanna Nitsch’s works ingeniously connects the contentual aspects of our interpersonal relationships, the “emotion codes,” with the question of art’s constitutive conditions. Just as relationships between people follow certain patterns and the self only constitutes itself in the interplay with the other, the work of art first becomes a work of art in a complex web of relationships between picture, viewer and artist. You can look forward to new, qualitatively spectacular large-format ink drawings, overpainted photographs, videos, prints and sculptures.

Opening:
Wednesday, August 30, 2017, 7 p.m.

Opening remarks:
Prof. Dr. Susanne Pfleger, director of the Städtische Galerie Wolfsburg
