For his solo presentation in the main room of the Secession, Christopher Wool has selected 20 drawings as well as 32 large format works on aluminum and canvas, which were all made during the past year and largely especially for this exhibition. They are particularly distinguished by a new colorfulness.
Christopher Wool designed the architecture of the room with the intention of enabling specific glances into the space in a labyrinthine system of movable walls and placing the exhibited, always serial pictures in relation to one another with diagonal cross references. The way they are hung irritates the perception of the viewer, which also makes the theme of representation more comprehensible.
Christopher Wool is the author of numerous art books; the catalogue published in conjunction with this exhibition is also placed in this context.
