Fabian Marcaccio – Jessica Stockholder

Fabian Marcaccio and Jessica Stockholder work at the juncture between painting and sculpture. With over 50 works, the exhibition in Sammlung Goetz provides a glimpse into the work of the two New York artists.

 

The exploration and crossing of borders is the main focus of Fabian Marcaccio and Jessica Stockholer's works. The two artists masterfully combine painting with found materials, thus defying traditional genre definitions. "Sometimes I feel as though I would be creating a material film and the actors are pictorial, photographic and sculptural elements," says Marcaccio about his artistic strategy in a conversation with Stockholder.

The exhibition in Sammlung Goetz presents large-scale, colorful installations, painting-sculptures, luxuriant paintings, photographs and drawings created by the two New York artists between 1988 and 1998. Despite their formally similar approaches, their contrary artistic positions become clear. In his confrontation with the medium of painting, Marcaccio expands into the spatial realm. Stockholder's intention, on the other hand, is to give meaning to the objects and actions in her material collages.

Felix Gonzalez-Torres, "Untitled", 1992

An exhibition project by the Sammlung Goetz in public space

The black-and-white photograph "Untitled" (1992) by Felix Gonzalez-Torres, in which a figure’s ghostly shadow is captured on a billowing curtain, is part of the artist’s billboard series. The concept behind the work is that the owner produces the image as a public poster. Regardless of how often it is printed, it is always unique. In the context of Munich’s Various Others project, the Sammlung Goetz is presenting "Untitled" (1992) on five billboards in around the city and in front of its own exhibition building in Munich.
