Trisha Baga: Hope

With texts by Paulina Pobocha and Moritz Wesseler.

On November 3, 2020, Trisha Baga illuminated the facade of the Fridericianum in Kassel with HOPE, a film produced especially for the occasion. The work is a reflection on the state of our world today and, more specifically, a commentary on the US presidential election that took place on the same date.

Baga’s film reflects the markedly contrasting events, conditions, and moods of the present moment, which combine to form a new sense of unity within the work. The result is an echoing declaration in which, like in most of the artist’s works, the boundaries between film, painting, sculpture, and architecture, between the work of art and its surroundings, blur. The relevance of Baga’s themes is underscored through HOPE’s specific form of presentation as a widely visible illumination, one that gives rise to a resounding call for both hope and action.

    Keren Cytter: Full House

    The artist’s book Full House is based on a new series of drawings by Keren Cytter, who was born in 1977 in Tel Aviv. The images depict the interior of apartments in Netanya, Lausanne, and New York, in which the artist and writer lived between 2020 and 2022. Cytter used a variety of felt-tips to make the drawings, which are composed like puzzles, but here the pieces do not seem to quite fit together. In this way, the view into the everyday life of Cytter, which is not least reminiscent of the tradition of diaries, is regularly undermined.

        Ron Nagle: Sub Rosa

        With a text by Ron Nagle and a conversation between Massimiliano Gioni and the artist.

        “Years later I rediscovered the photo booth at a novelty shop on 24th Street in San Francisco. I spent a lot of time there, taking dozens of pictures. Simultaneously, I began collecting random postcards from my favorite shop in North Beach. My photo shoots got more involved when I decided to merge the two elements. I would adjust my posture, pose, and attire to best accommodate the postcard. Sometimes it would take a hundred shots to get it right. By carefully selecting the proper combination of sticker and postcard, I was able to make a somewhat convincing tableau. These collages allowed me to insinuate myself into a scene from someone else’s experience.” (Ron Nagle)

        The artist’s book is published on the occasion of the exhibitions:

          Richard Hawkins: My Own Personal Bess

          The publication My Own Personal Bess, an artist’s book by Richard Hawkins was published on the occasion of the Forrest Bess exhibition. It is composed of collages, for which Hawkins combined reproductions of paintings by the visionary artist with selected text fragments and advertisements from the article “His Name Was Forrest Bess,” published in 1981 by Texas Monthly magazine. The book empathically approaches both the artistic work and biography of Bess, whom Hawkins discovered in his youth and considers to be a pioneering figure. Today Hawkins’s own work has likewise become an important point of reference for a younger generation of artists.

            Rachel Rose

            The Fridericianum in Kassel and the Lafayette Anticipations Foundation in Paris are pleased to announce the publication of the catalogue Rachel Rose. The illustrated edition is published to accompany the first major solo exhibitions of the New York-born artist (1986) to be held in Germany (October 26, 2019 – January 12, 2020) and France (March 13 – September 13, 2020).

            In recent years, Rachel Rose has quickly risen to prominence for her compelling video installations and films. In her work, the artist often explores how our relationship to landscape, storytelling and belief systems around mortality are inseparably linked to one other. Through multiple subject matter she questions what it is that makes us human and how we seek to alter and escape that designation.
            The catalogue offers a complete overview of the artist’s work through well-founded text contributions and extensive documentation of her works.
