Exhibitionin New York, NY / United States
Hauser & Wirth will present major installations by the legendary German-born Swiss artist Dieter Roth (1930 – 1998), who, in seeking to pulverize traditional boundaries, elevated the processes by which things happen, embracing accidents, mutations, and accretions of detail over time. The effects are seen in two large-scale works: ‘The Studio of Dieter and Björn Roth, Ackermannshof, Basel’ (1995 – 2008), an installation of the actual studio shared by the father and son art-making team, including furniture, books, and other personal items reflecting not just a practice but a prevailing philosophy in which art and daily life are indivisible.
Also on view is Roth’s long-term project ‘Flacher Abfall (Flat Waste)’ (1975 – 1976/1992), for which Roth encased food packaging and other detritus in plastic sleeves filed in over 600 binders. Other related works and drawings will also be included.
