Go inside the worlds of art, fashion, design, and lifestyle.
German artist Gregor Hildebrandt returns to Perrotin for his fifth show at the New York gallery, this time presenting “In meiner Wohnung gibt es viele Zimmer,” an exhibition that will completely envelope visitors in a mute musical fabric. The show features impressively-woven magnetic tape creations, pictorial scenes made entirely of cassettes, and major vinyl and wood works like Kleines Feld and Ins Blaue.
Wander through the constructed walls of Hildebrandt’s stark minimal aesthetic, which has been meticulously configured into a synesthetic labyrinth. Through the use of antiquated analogue recording materials like cassette tapes, vinyl records, and magnetic tapes, the artist creates sculptures and installations from audio materials.
Although not at the forefront of the works, just as noteworthy is the way Hildebrandt has carefully injected himself into the works—choosing each material for its significance in his own history. With the help of the artist’s graphic sensibility and restrained color palette, the underlying personal element of each piece can’t help but impose a strong sense of nostalgia on its viewers.
“In meiner Wohnung gibt es viele Zimmer,” is on view through December 22.
