East GalleryNUA is delighted to exhibit work by the ground breaking German artist, Hans-Peter Feldmann. Feldmann has exhibited in many major art venues worldwide, he was included in the Venice Biennale in 2009 and was awarded the prestigious Hugo Boss Art Prize in 2010.
Feldmann’s work is held in collections in the UK (Tate), the USA (Guggenheim, Hirschorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Washington), Denmark (Louisiana Museum) and Spain (MACBA, Museo Reina Sophia, Madrid). Hans-Peter is well known for appropriating objects and making astute interventions that are often humorous, and frequently barbed. Copies of old master paintings are revised and don red noses or incongruous tan lines: toys are used for their ability to cast unsettling shadows and versions of celebrated sculptures are luridly subverted – Michaelangelo’s David, for example.
This exhibition of Hans-Peter’s work at East GalleryNUA will be the first major showing of his creative output in the region.
East GalleryNUA was the first art gallery worldwide to exhibit Mutator VR, a new Virtual Reality installation using original software modelled on the processes of evolution. The viewer experienced the work of a 3D organic space that changed and emerged around them. Watch this video to find more about this animated virtual world.
Thursday 27 April, 6.30pm – Duke Street Lecture Theatre
