Art Institute of Chicago has commissions Katharina Fritsch for a site-specific, sculptural installation
The Art Institute of Chicago has recently commissioned Katharina Fritsch for a site-specific, sculptural installation. The German artist’s curious cast of characters–oversized versions of a hand, fern fronds, an apple, an egg, a human skull, St. Michael, and a Madonna, among others–will be on display on the Bluhm Family Terrace atop the museum’s Modern Wing through October 28, 2012. These nine brightly colored sculptures, divided up into three distinct groups of works (1. Stilleben/1st Still Life, 3. Stilleben/3rd Still Life, and Apfel/Apple) , were produced between 2009 and 2012. Fritsch’s fastidiously crafted objects–rendered in bronze, copper, plastic, and epoxy–offer visitors an alternative, perhaps unsettling, view of these often iconic forms.
