Rosemarie Trockel

Is there a difference between fine art and craft except for the way that we perceive it? With bold visual statements and a wide breadth of creative expression, Rosemarie Trockel entered the German art scene in the ‘70s and soon earned a reputation as a powerful force. Prolific, diverse, and always highly inventive, she reinforced her position with a growing oeuvre across film and video, knitted paintings, ceramics, drawing, collage, and sculpture.

Questions regarding legitimacy are at the core of Trockel’s myriad practice. Whether probing the position of crafts and applied arts, or our relationship with the natural world, Trockel takes a uniquely feminist stance as she investigates the systems of art, social order, and gender identity. With a career spanning 40 years, Trockel’s singular voice has earned the artist the Kaiserring der Stadt Goslar art prize, the 1999 German Pavilion at La Biennale di Venezia, and participation in documenta X and dOCUMENTA 13.

Double Happy, 2013

A striking example of one of Rosemarie Trockel’s enduring—if less often utilized—choices of media, Double Happy, 2013 uses a silkscreen print technique on Plexiglas to highlight the transparency and fragility of its image. Trockel has chosen a double likeness of the same women for her motif, transforming what might otherwise appear to be an easy smile into a moment of subtle confrontation between image and cultural expectations, if only through the uncanny quality of its replication.

How solid are our identities? And how does the cliché of femininity stand up to the modern world? Trockel has come back to these themes time and time again over the course of her decades-long career, making Double Happy, 2013 a highly representative work by this remarkable, internationally significant conceptual artist. An exclusive production of 25 pieces, this Amazing Edition is ready to bring Trockel’s message of freedom from cultural expectation to any space it occupies.
