East Gallery NUA is delighted to present a range of works by ground-breaking artist, Hans-Peter Feldmann. The exhibition of Hans-Peter’s work at East Gallery NUA will be the first major showing of his creative output in the region and has been curated by Professor Neil Powell.
Hans-Peter is well known for making humorous and insightful interventions on works of art. Copies of old master paintings are retouched and don red noses, or display (in)conspicuous tan lines. Versions of celebrated sculptures are luridly refigured, Michaelangelo’s David, which features in the show, being just one example. The title, ‘Art Exhibition’ is a joke in itself- in one way it’s obvious that this is an art exhibition with paintings and sculptures in an art gallery. But Feldmann is playing with the idea of authorship by taking existing objects and artworks and manipulating them and defying the conventions of ‘art’ by not signing or dating his work.
