Parkett #4 Meret Oppenheim

Perception itself is playfully subjectivized by the trio of younger artists collaborating in the newest issue of Parkett. Infusing a poetic sensuality into Minimalism’s legacy, Gabriel Orozco’s works vary from sculptural triumphs to more ephemeral, performative acts, such as rolling a huge ball of plasticine, of exactly his own body weight, through the streets in order to “get an impression” of the world around him. Gary Hume’s paintings range from geometric abstractions to almost psychedelic figuration, his luscious colors and glistening surfaces both entice and repel the viewer. For Pipilotti Rist, the game of perceptual experience focuses on performance, in videos and installations whose manipulations of the figure and its movements seem to form and dissolve before our eyes.
