081110: Galerie Hubert Winter Fred Sandback

Galerie Hubert Winter Fred Sandback 17.09.2010 – 16.11.2010 Habitable drawings The Galerie Hubert Winter presents Fred Sandback’s work for the third time since his death in 2003. The directions that Sandback set and added to the works support the difficult task of reconstructing and adjusting his work to the gallery space. All of the works are a selection from his legacy in New York and the majority have never been exhibited in the gallery before. They were installed with the help of one of the artist’s former assistants and in the presence of a representative of the legacy, and adapted to the spatial situation. His work is characterized by monochrome and colour acrylic or rubber strings which he spanned in lines across a room. Works on paper, linocuts, etchings and Photostats amend the retrospective. The work of Fred Sandback, who belonged to New York’s most important artists during the 1970’s, was partly seen in association with Minimal Art – yet Sandback’s work distinguishes itself by its approach to the creation process as well as its self-understanding. Minimalists overcome their painting inability through a transmission into the third dimension, and Sandback does something similar with a drawing. He transferred a drawing into three-dimensions and monuments, and from there transposes the sculpture into an imaginary level: “A sculpture that became less of an object in itself and more of a diffuse interface between me, my surroundings and others, who live in these surroundings”, Sandback described his work. These sculptures have no inner or outer form; he created room drawings that are simultaneously drawings in a room. The factual and actual conjoin by letting the space and the drawing communicate and complement each other; form a unit. “A drawing that one can inhabit”, as Sandback once explained.
