Matthew Barney – Tony Oursler – Jeff Wall
July 22, 1996 - January 31, 1997 | Goetz Collection

This exhibition in Sammlung Goetz unites the works of three North American artists and focuses on one general theme: contemporary human nature.

Matthew Barney, Tony Oursler and Jeff Wall are among the most interesting artists of the closing twentieth century. Their photographs, films, videos and video installations take up central issues of human relationships and identify complex biological, social and political constellations. Although they are preoccupied with the state of human nature today, they choose timeless imagery.

In Matthew Barney's photographs and films, mysterious entities – somewhere between humans and animals – populate opulent visual worlds. Tony Oursler awakens his dolls to life using video projections and renders them conversational partners in absurd dialogues.
The perfectly staged photographs of Jeff Wall, presented in large lightboxes, are reminiscent of the artificiality of film sets. The exhibition in Sammlung Goetz displays current works by the three North American artists created during the 1990s.

Matthew Barney (born in 1967 in San Francisco, US, lives and works in New York, US).
