Anne Imhof: Angst

Kunsthalle Basel

10 Jun 201621 Aug 2016

Anne Imhof (b. 1978), recent winner of the Preis der Nationalgalerie 2015, presents an audacious new project that combines her interest in performance, drawing, and installation with a live element that will extend over the duration of the exhibition.

A mix of amateur and formally trained performances enact what the German artist considers an opera of sorts, constructed through a mix of cryptic gestures, an abstract musical composition, and moving sculptural elements. Expanding on her signature vocabulary and materials (dripping liquids, punching bags, task-like movements, exhaustion), Angst troubles the boundaries of the body, time, and the fleeting images created between them.
