Philipp Lachenmann: DELPHI_Essentials
ACE Gallery presents DELPHI_Essentials, a solo exhibition by Philipp Lachenmann.
DELPHI_Essentials will be on view October 4-December 16, 2017.
A reception will be held October 4, 2017 from 6-9pm.
Philipp Lachenmann’s work consistently lays bare the essential formations of art, decoding the inherent representational structures in their tangled reference monopolies, exposing their strategies and thus making them readable on a new level. This approach shifts the center of gravity of much of contemporary art away from the radical relativism of the 90s, in a direction that reaffirms both authorship and engagement with society. The Lachenmann exhibition will occupy the entire gallery space.
Lachenmann studied art history, philosophy, and film before completing post-graduate study at the Academy of Media Arts KHM in Cologne, Germany. His work has been exhibited at the Shanghai Biennale (2004), Museum K21 Düsseldorf (2008), Nationalgalerie im Hamburger Bahnhof Berlin (2011), Deichtorhallen Hamburg (2012), KW Kunstwerke Berlin (2016); and screened at MIT Short Film Festival Boston (2008), IFFR Rotterdam, SIFF Seattle, SFIFF San Francisco (2009), NYFF New York (2010), and HKIFF Hongkong (2011). Lachenmann has been awarded the German Academic Exchange Program (DAAD) New York (1998), the Villa Aurora residency in Los Angeles (2003), Villa Massimo in Rome (2012), and a residency grant for 2018 at the Villa Tarabya Istanbul, Turkey.
