Thaddaeus Ropac Gallery Pantin - Anselm Kiefer: Für Andrea Emo

Five years after Anselm Kiefer’s exhibition for the inauguration of our gallery in Pantin, and following his retrospective at the Centre Pompidou in 2015/2016, Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is pleased to announce the presentation of a new series of works by the artist in Paris. The exhibition Für Andrea Emo brings together a selection of around twenty paintings along with three sculptures, which reflect the sedimentation of memory cherished by the artist. These sculptures encapsulate a spiritual connection between several elements. They appear as many fossils or artefacts to unearth, as many micro-fictions to decipher. With an unprecedented formal inventiveness, the paintings reflect the artist’s continuous interest in the process of destruction and regeneration. By pouring molten lead, Anselm Kiefer obliterates the original image and brings to life his own work in a radically iconoclastic gesture.

Start date: February 11, 2018
End date: May 31, 2018
Address: 69 Avenue du Général Leclerc, 93500 Pantin
