|Rosemarie Trockel||1||artist's edition|
Exhibition of the editions of Rosemarie Trockel, etchings, 1996.
Presentation of various editions (1992-1994) and etchings published by the Centre.
For the edition of the Centre genevois de gravure contemporaine, Rosemarie Trockel incorporates elements that have traveled through his work. If, in her “paintings”, electric hob stove or knitted patterns replace in a trivial and playful way the forms of minimalism, for this serie of engravings long woolen thread blocked in the varnish organize the networks of clumsy and trembling lines – line networks that transform a grid or decorative designs repeated several times in a stylized writing. This distance towards abstract painting codes is recovered in a very pragmatic and immediate approach of the engraving where an object is reproduced literally in its texture. Again, artisanal qualities of the technique are used not for their material effects, but with objectivity and amused detachment that often characterize the works of Rosemarie Trockel.
