about this work

Christopher Wools' picture shows a fragmented and incomplete scene - no story is told and it is impossible to reconstruct a sequence of events. One can only assume that Wool himself found this moment strange and wanted to hold on to it.

Maybe a familiar person suddenly assumed a position that is amorphous and not determined by gender. This could have pushed Wool to take a picture in the tradition of surrealistic photographers – known for depicting, dissolving, or dissecting their lovers.

This is Christopher Wool’s famous 1994 edition for Texte Zur Kunst.

about Christoper Wool

°1955, Chicago (US) – lives and works in New York City and Marfa, Texas (US)

American artist Christopher Wool made a name for himself in the early 1980 and is best known for his stencilled word paintings. The words are often scattered on the canvas and the phrases broken up, needing to be read aloud to make sense. Wool’s famous work Apocalypse Now, 1988, reads ‘Sell the House, Sell the Car, Sell the Kids’ and can be seen as a reference to the hectic, can-do spirit of the eighties. Most widely renowned as a painter, his practice includes a wide array of techniques, including photography, silkscreen, reproduction, overpainting, and erasing. By working in layers, Wool questions the status of the painting, revealing everything it can be.

Christopher Wool has had numerous solo exhibitions, including shows at The Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, New York, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. Other solo shows include the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam; Kölnischer Kunstverein; Kunsthalle Bern; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Carnegie Museum of Art, Pittsburgh; Kunsthalle Basel; Institut Valencià d’Art Modern and Musée d’Art Moderne et Contemporain, Strasbourg; Museu de Arte Contemporânea de Serralves, Porto; Museum Ludwig, Cologne; Musée d’Art Moderne de la Ville de Paris. Wool has participated in the Whitney Biennial, New York; Documenta X, Kassel, the Lyon Biennial; and the Venice Biennale.
