Summary:
The show is the last exhibition project that Maria Lassnig was able to plan personally with the curator Hans Ulrich Obrist. Around fifty works are on show, paintings and works on paper, especially watercolours. which seize upon motifs from Greek mythology and their expansive and permanent exchange with all Mediterranean civilisations. Although these works by Maria Lassnig are not so well known, they manifest characteristics typical of her work: the awareness of the body, the painterly rendering of the inner and outer world, as well as animal portrayals and landscapes. In an unusual selection from Maria Lassnig's oeuvre the exhibition and the accompanying catalogue with contributions from leading scholars and artists spotlight her unique visual idiom, in which she combines science with a subjective emotional life, and Mediterranean landscapes with figures from ancient mythology. Exhibition: Municipal Gallery of Athens, Greece (07.04.-16.07.2017).
