Gregor Hildebrandt will have two exhibitions at the Zurich Art Weekend together with Sommer Contemporary Art and Grieder Contemporary.
Worte ohne Lieder is the exhibition with Grieder Contemporary Gallery and opens on June 8 at 6 pm.
“Worte ohne Lieder (Mendelssohn Bartholdy)” is part of the artist’s iconic series of “rip-off” paintings, composed of collages of audio or VHS tapes, in which Hildebrandt creates complementary positive and negative versions of the same motif. The music “Lieder ohne Worte, Book 2, Op. 30: No. 7 in E-Flat Major” by German composer Mendelssohn Bartholdy is recorded on the work’s audio tapes.
Milky Milky Milky Milky is the exhibition he will be doing with Sommer Contemporary Art Gallery and opens June 9 at 6 p.m. and runs through July 15.
Having recently curated two white themed group exhibitions, Gregor Hildebrandt is now set to convert the Sommer Salon into a fully functional white bar. Renown for his use of outdated recording media like tapes and vinyl records, Hildebrandt crafts sculptures and paintings that embed hidden musical elements. Milky Milky Milky Milky, draws inspiration from bars tailored to artists and stands not only as a sculpture but also as a place for encounters and a stage for other works by the artist.
Milky Milky Milky Milky, Hildebrandt’s fully functional bar, stands not only as a sculpture but also as a place for encounters and a stage for other works by the artist. All works stem from objects sourced from the music industry, which Hildebrandt has translated, manipulated, and expanded upon to foster an environment that sparks interaction and collaboration.
