Together with this year’s guest Galerie Konrad Fischer, Galerie Rüdiger Schöttle is happy to present a joint show of everyday things with the Düsseldorf artist Hans-Peter Feldmann.
Feldmann’s work focuses not on the extraordinary but revolves mainly around the everyday. As he himself says: “Only five minutes of the day are interesting. I want to show the rest. Normal life.” He photographs different types of bread, transforms a ruler into a folding ruler house, or arranges everyday objects such as pencils, cubes, reading glasses, scissors, and paint pots into aesthetic studies. His slight artistic distortion of things, carried out with a fine subversive humor, reveals the oft-absurd character of our everyday world.
Hans-Peter Feldmann (*1941 Hilden) intentionally and consequently holds his artistic authorship in the background and keeps his biographical information to a minimum. His work refuses to conform to art market norms by often taking the form of unlimited editions that he does not sign.
