DOMINIQUE GONZALEZ-FOERSTER
QM.15

NOVEMBER 4 – DECEMBER 17, 2016
OPENING RECEPTION NOVEMBER 4, 6–9PM    

Esther Schipper is pleased tol present QM.15, Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster's ninth solo exhibition with the gallery, from November 4 through December 17, 2016.  

The title of the exhibition, QM.15, stands for French 19th century actress Sarah Bernhardt's motto "quand même", which might be translated as "even so" or "nevertheless." It can be understood as a reference to the high price the drive to create may exert on an artist, as Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster has noted about the three characters which appear in QM.15: Sarah Bernhardt, Marilyn Monroe and Maria Callas, "they can't stop, and art is their vehicle; their very lives must become works of art, no matter the cost. The supreme excitement is the artistic experience."  

For QM.15, Gonzalez-Foerster chose these three real-life figures in their late oeuvre, inhabiting them in a process the artist has compared to a séance: "a prepared trance, allowing intense artistic moments to appear and re-appear." The triple apparition took place on stage at the Centre Pompidou in January 2016 but was first filmed in November 2015 to produce Teatro (QM.15), Cinema (QM.15) and Opera (QM.15).
