For her first solo exhibition in ten years, Isa Genzken unveils her latest creations exclusively at David Zwirner. For forty years, her work has blurred the boundaries between art, design, architecture, media and technology. Always in search of novelty, the German artist often mixes disparate objects and materials, creating artistic patchworks: 20th century avant-gardes, urbanism, abstraction, modern design... In its entirety, her work questions the impact of an increasingly mercantile and interconnected culture on our lives. David Zwirner presents immense sculptures called "towers". This large-scale installation underlines Isa Genzken's fascination with architecture and urban landscape. Totally improvised, these architectural forms are vertical panels adorned with mirrors, spray paint and other mediums of all kinds. Imposing, the "towers" refer to the fragility of the contemporary environment: inside and outside merge, open forms are mixed with porous materials, mannequins are added to the whole... As for the large exposed aluminum wall panels, they too are a mixture of various materials. They also question this complex relationship between the individual and the visual and material environment of the consumer society. Isa Genzken's work evolves to the rhythm of the world around her to question the spatial order!
