Galerie Jocelyn Wolff is pleased to participate to West Bund Art and Design Fair 2022. For this new edition, our selection gathers some historical works from the second part of the 20th century by Miriam Cahn and Franz Erhard Walther, well known and internationally recognized artists, alongside with recent pieces by our artists Francisco Tropa, Isa Melsheimer, Santiago de Paoli, as well as Prinz Gholam, Elodie Seguin and Diego Bianchi, presented for the very first time at West Bund.
A selection of extraordinary paintings and works on paper by Miriam Cahn will be shown. Presented at the 59th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia 2022 « The Milk of Dreams », awarded the 14th Rubens Prize from the City of Siegen in June 2022, welcomed for a personal retrospective at Palais de Tokyo in 2023, Cahn explores an ongoing battle against violence while placing the body at the center of her artistic process, not only as a subject but also as an artistic medium.
Franz Erhard Walther present an alternative way to approach the body in his work. Golden Lyon for the best artist at the 57th International Art Exhibition (La Biennale di Venezia) in 2017, Franz Erhard Walther activates textile sculpture, creating a deep connection between sculpture and performance. We are delighted to showing a fabric, Wall Configuration from 1992, representative of his work.
In conversation to these two historical artists, the works of Prinz Gholam, Elodie Seguin, Diego Bianchi, Francisco Tropa, Isa Melheimer and Santiago de Paoli, will show various ways to question the relationship between space and body.
