The exhibition Flagrant Delight offers an insight into the multifaceted work of Rosemarie Trockel (Schwerte, Germany, 1952), a major figure on the international art scene for the last thirty years. In the early 1980s, Trockel proposed an alternative to the rigid formalism and expressive painting that dominated the artistic context at the time. Today, a few decades later, the fundamental principles of her practice still involve the notions of liberty and going beyond the limits of academicism, conventional associations and knowledge of language, as well as avant-garde forms and symbols. Taking as its leitmotif an extensive series of collages produced since 2004, the exhibition also includes a great variety of sculptures, ceramic objects and wall pieces made with wool. The title refers to the multiple quality of her work: expressive, playful, witty, gloomy, obscure and always sensuous.
Rosemarie Trockel – Flagrant Delight is a collaboration between WIELS Contemporary Art Centre in Brussels, Culturgest and Museion, in Bolzano/Bozen.
