Cahiers d’Art is pleased to present a special exhibition of Trockel’s work in our gallery spaces in Paris, on view from March 28 -May 24, 2014.
The exhibition features fifteen mixed media works, including the artists latest works made from stretched black yarn. In these black monochrome works, the yarn material is placed like a stroke of the brush on the canvas.
Trockel stands apart among contemporary artists working today through her deep engagement with materials and her unique use of these materials in unconventional ways. In other examples of work in this exhibition, the artist combines ceramic-like materials, such as Acrystal with Plexiglass, together with pieces of crystal. Trockels combination of materials as disparate as casts of meat, digital prints and crystal dislodge the materials from their usual meanings.
