Heimo Zobernig

Heimo Zobernig has taken the central visual tenets of Modernism and run them through a philosophical filter that blends 1980s aesthetic subversion with an equal part of 1990s socio-political engagement. In a practice spanning over 30 years, Zobernig has worked across painting, sculpture, and installation, a mix of media that allows the Austrian artist and Academy of Fine Arts Vienna professor to fully express his unique sense for dramatic Minimalism—a talent honed during early studies in set design. Whether the early works that won his inclusion in Documenta IX and X, or his striking architectural intervention at the Austrian Pavilion for the 2015 Venice Biennale, Heimo Zobernig makes geometric forms and systems a language of his own.

Interest in Zobernig’s compelling works is only continuing to grow. Recent shows include Museum Ludwig Cologne (2016), Malmö Konsthall (2016) and Sammlung Grässlin (2016) and Galería Juana de Aizpuru in Madrid (2016).

Untitled, 2002

Expressed through simple forms and pragmatic materials in his sculptural practice, or subverted and teased through various means across his paintings, the grid has come forward as one of Heimo Zobernig’s central interests.

Untitled, 2002 sees the KontextKunst generation artist take a highly unusual direction. Known for his almost universal adherence to square canvases, in this work Zobernig makes a rare break from his formal consistency and discreet optimizations—and does so with clear intent. Maintaining the classic graphic form of the grid across a rectangular field, Zobernig highlights the system’s limitations every bit as much as the beauty of its rationality.

Untitled, 2002 is part of an edition of 30 with six additional artist’s proofs and is ready to be delivered either framed or unframed. Offered as a silkscreen on paper, this Amazing Edition will make a striking statement on the drama of minimalism wherever it hangs.

The square is Zobernig's most enduring theme, making this limited edition a fantastic—and very rare—opportunity to bring a highly representative piece of the artist's work into your collection.
