"Multiples (Editions)"

The galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is very pleased to announce the exhibition DELICIOUS in the project room. This exhibition includes sculptures dealing with 'food': Slim Fast cans and a popcorn cast in bronze by Sylvie Fleury meet a burger box by Tom Sachs and surreal hybrids by Bernhard Martin.

From an intellectual point of view, this is a very exciting time for dealing with the topic of reproduction in art. Even before the Industrial Revolution in the nineteenth century, graphic reproductions could already be considered a mass medium of communication. Their main purpose was to make images from other media accessible for a broad public. At the same time, there were always artists who were not interested in reproduction as such, such
as Dürer, Rembrandt, or Goya, but rather wanted to exhaust the aesthetic and technical possibilities of graphic art. And that is the starting point for those Editions pieces: it shall become a platform for a historic art medium and allow artists to realise projects that exploit its creative possibilities.
