CARL ANDRE 

10. September – 5. November 2016

Since the first European exhibition of Carl Andre at Konrad Fischer in 1967, the gallery is looking back on a continuous series of exhibitions by the American artist. In the current presentation we are pleased to show two gas concrete works from the 1980s, Inner Piece and Outer Piece, together with a series of his Poems from 1963.

At the opening we will also present the catalogue of the exhibition Carl Andre – Satellites, 2015, with an essay by Eva Meyer-Hermann. On the occasion of Carl Andre's 80th birthday, five large outdoor works by the artist were shown by the Josef Albers Museum, Bottrop; the Museum Morsbroich, Leverkusen; the Langen Foundation, Neuss; Stiftung Insel Hombroich, Neuss and Skulpturenpark Waldfrieden, Wuppertal.

The most comprehensive retrospective of Carl Andre's work so far is on show at Hamburger Bahnhof, Berlin, until 18th September. The exhibition, which has been shown at Dia Beacon, NY and the Museo National Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, will travel in October to the Musée d'art moderne de la Ville de Paris and then to the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.

DAVID DOUARD
Slippers of Snow

Konrad Fischer Galerie is pleased to present for the first time works by David Douard. Douard's interest in communication and language is manifested in his sculptures, which are strongly inspired by texts and poems. He juxtaposes elements of familiar domestic interiors with raw, hard components of industrial design.

'Poems gleaned from the Internet come to life, disrupted, selectively, in fragments. Only snippets on the surface reach us, like voices erupting without us knowing where from. The impossibility of following a multitude of links is emphasised; technology is in permanent flux, perpetually moving out of reach. We are resigned to our own malaise, embracing a fatigue and an anxiety toward modalities of construction of uninterrupted networks – a fear of complete emptiness. Dissolving in different realities, we find ourselves in a state of cold comfort, trying resiliently to reach the truth, where we join and combine with others. There are objects which come from places we will never go, but which are so adaptable that we can incorporate them into our bodies and live through them. Others are threatening and sharp, tamed only with time. Placed in an inadequate soil, they should be transplanted to a place where they can finally grow and reveal their inner complex systems. ' Daphné Praud

The installation includes two works by Daniel Pommereulle (1937-2003), artist, writer, poet, actor and cineast. His works are pervaded by a sense of violence and irony.

David Douard (*1983 in Perpignan, Frankreich) lives and works in Paris and Aubervilliers. His recent exhibitons include solo shows at Palais de Tokyo, Paris, at the Sculpture Centre, New York, and at the Centre for Contemporary Art, Malmö. Last year his work was shown in a group exhibition at the Fridericianum, Kassel. Horses, his first solo exhibition in Germany, is currently showing at Kunstverein Braunschweig.
