Gregor Hildebrandt, Sommer Contemporary, Tel Aviv, summer 2020
The Sommer Contemporary Gallery in Tel Aviv presents the work of Gregor Hildebrandt who uses audio and video tapes as raw material for his paintings to create works that resemble paintings in their assemblages or sculptures of sorts by attaching them together.
With these materials that have become obsolete he creates new “ready-made” products and gives them a new meaning in a subtle way. In this way he combines abstraction and narration while transforming vintage and nostalgic objects for a new and minimalist plastic use. In addition, each piece is linked to a certain music and functions as three-dimensional objects to evoke it.
Born in Germany in 1974 the artist is present worldwide and Sommer Contemporary has already exhibited him in 2017 just after his mudeographic performances at the Kunstlerhaus Bethanien Museum in Berlin (2016), the Bass Museum of Art, Miami, USA (2014) and Palais de Tokyo in Paris (2012).
