Gerard Byrne at dOCUMENTA (13)
- Wednesday 06 June 2012
Green On Red Gallery is delighted to announce the participation of Gerard Byrne in dOCUMENTA (13), an international exhibition of contemporary and modern art which takes place in Kassel, Germany every five years.
dOCUMENTA (13) is dedicated to artistic research and forms of imagination that explore commitment, matter, things, embodiment, and active living in connection with, yet not subordinated to, theory.
These are terrains where politics are inseparable from a sensual, energetic, and worldly alliance between current research in various scientific and artistic fields and other knowledges, both ancient and contemporary. dOCUMENTA (13) is driven by a holistic and non-logocentric vision that is skeptical of the persisting belief in economic growth.
This vision is shared with, and recognises, the shapes and practices of knowing of all the animate and inanimate makers of the world, including people. The exhibition in Kassel aims at engaging with a site and, at the same time, producing a polylogue with other places.
Gerard Byrne's work A man and a woman make love. (2012) will be exhibited in the Grand City Hotel Hessenland from 09 June - 16 Sep 2012.
