Galerie Buchholz, Berlin, hosts the solo exhibition dedicated to artist Richard Hawkins, set in both the floors of the exhibition space.
In the first one, the artist presents an installation of two new groups of work, the Collage Paintings and the Gesture Paintings.
The second level of the gallery features an exhibition dedicated to the artist, titled To the House of Shibusawa, which includes new and selected works conceived by Richard Hawkins in conversation with Robert Snowden. The works express artist’s reflection upon the friendship between two historical figures of Japanese culture: Tatsumi Hijikata, founder of butoh, and Tatsuhiko Shibusawa, collector and the Japanese translator of writings, such as Joris-Karl Huysmans’s “Á Rebours” andJean Genet’s “Querelle”.
