Pinakothek der Moderne Presents Edition 46 Designed by Hans-Peter Feldmann

MUNICH.- The Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin issued in week 46 every year always comes from the hands of an international contemporary artist. This year, »Edition 46« is being designed by Hans-Peter Feldmann.

The magazine appeared on Friday, 19 November as a supplement in the Süddeutsche Zeitung. The magazine project prompted an exhibition of the artist’s work at the Pinakothek der Moderne, currently on display through Feb. 13th, 2011.

Hans-Peter Feldmann, who was born in 1941 in Düsseldorf where he still lives today, is one of the most unconventional artists in Germany. For more than forty years he has been working with photographs and everyday objects that he continuously reassembles to create different installations. Feldmann explicitly does not differentiate between his own material and objects he has found as he feels such a division would be pointless. The intrinsic meaning of his work is generated through combination and association; it is conveyed through subversive humour or muted melancholy.

Other works by the artist are shown at the Pinakothek der Moderne in addition to his contribution to the magazine. These includes his »Schattenspiel« (Shadow Play) that was first exhibited at the Biennale in Venice in 2002 and which has been developed continuously ever since. Spread out over several tables, Feldmann’s »Schattenspiel« is an arrangement of small objects from flea markets or supermarkets, such as toy figures and kitsch, little household devices and packaging, placed on slowly moving turntables. Powerfully lit from the front, the objects on the rotating disks cast shadows onto the wall behind. These glide past in ever-changing degrees of distortion and overlapping and call up memories or inspire stories to be told.

On 05.11.2010, the Hugo Boss Prize – one of the most coveted international awards for contemporary art – was presented to Hans-Peter Feldmann by the Solomon R. Guggenheim Foundation. Next year, from 20 May onwards, the artist will be honoured with a prize-winner’s exhibition in the Guggenheim Museum, New York. The prize of 100,000 US dollars has been awarded every two years since 1996.
