Albertinum, Dresden, Germany
From 13 June 2017 these Romantic and early Realist paintings will be joined by a contemporary work by Katharina Grosse consisting of a painted tree root and two aluminium elements, thus illustrating continuity and change in the treatment of this subject and acting as a kind of corrective. This is the first time that a work by Grosse, who combines an abstract, dynamic and multidimensional form of painting with real objects, is being presented in Dresden. The complex three-dimensional form is both relativised and accentuated by the painting. In this process, the colour is optically detached from its support and becomes an event in its own right.
