Inhaltsangabe zu "Maria Eichhorn: Building as unowned property"
Since the beginning of her career, Eichhorn has made art interrogating codified norms that regiment everyday life and art, with a particular interest in socioeconomic processes. Value, time, property and possession are the foci of the questions that arise. Her work employs strategies of extensive research and sophisticated analysis to deliberately undermine the efficacy of these concepts. Reenacting established procedures, Eichhorn spotlights the ways in which they are incompatible with their designated purposes to allow for critical scrutiny and debate. By generating visibility, she creates platforms for fresh ways of thinking. The artist initiates processes of change whose repercussions can emerge over time and under the influence of the involved agents. The extraordinary complexity and opacity of the sets of issues the artist addresses contrast with the specific mode of precise presentation she has devised. Her most recent work, Κτίριο ως περιουσία άνευ ιδιοκτήτη / Building as unowned property (2017), which was co-produced by documenta 14, was first on view during the documenta at EMST, National Museum of Contemporary Art in Athens, has been purchased for the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst’s collection.
Maria Eichhorn lives and works in Berlin and Zurich. Her oeuvre has been the subject of numerous solo exhibitions, including, most recently, at the Chisenhale Gallery, London (2016), the Morris and Helen Belkin Art Gallery, Vancouver (2015), and the Kunsthaus Bregenz (2014). Eichhorn participated in documenta 11, Kassel (2002), documenta 14 in Athens and Kassel (2017), the 45th and 56th Venice Biennales (1993, 2015), and the 4th and 9th Istanbul Biennales (1995, 2005).
Published with the Migros Museum für Gegenwartskunst, Zurich.
