DESCRIPTION

Hans-Peter Feldmann, winner of THE HUGO BOSS PRIZE 2010, has spent over four decades conducting a profound investigation into the influence of the visual environment on our subjective reality. Composing images and objects into serial archives, uncanny combinations, and other illuminating new contexts, his work unearths the latent associations and sentiments that permeate the familiar landscape of daily life. From the series of modest artists books he initiated in the late 1960s to his recent sculptural assemblages of household items, Feldmann has studiously avoided any overt critical commentary on his subject matter, presenting it with an uninflicted simplicity that nonetheless evokes a subtle poetic resonance and suggests the presence of elusive narratives.
