Richard Artschwager

Sculpture / Eye / Painting / Touch

September 17, 2016 - December 23, 2016

Peder Lund is delighted to present an exhibition of works by the American artist Richard Artschwager (1923-2013). Artschwager challenged assumptions about perception, and the aesthetic, material and spatial experience of art and everyday objects. Well ahead of his time, he investigated how media culture and the search for something more real has created disengagement between our social and physical experience of space, and he began to conflate the world of images with the tactile world of objects. The exhibition Richard Artschwager. Sculpture / Eye / Painting / Touch evokes the famous statement Artschwager wrote in his notebook in the early 1960s: “I wanted to make a sculpture for the eye and a painting for the touch.” Seven works introduce Artschwager’s remarkable exploration of the mediums of sculpture and painting offering a taste of the extraordinary breadth of subject matter, form and material in his practice.
