John Armleder, Untitled, 1968
The line – it is often the element of artistic creation with which the genesis of a work begins. And so a rich variety of arrangements of lines are at the focus of the current exhibition at Galerie Susanna Kulli. Beginning with a look back at the most reductive approach conceivable, as demonstrated by John M Armleder in his “Untitled” (1968), Galerie Susanna Kulli presents a survey of works created by the gallery’s artists that examine the line as such. Works that differ radically with regard to the artistic attitudes that give rise to them, that is to say, may be considered in conjunction under the aspect of the line. Whether the support material is paper, canvas, Alucore or Denner paper bags: in a rich store of artistic approaches, the matrix of the line as a basic structure implies complex forms of correspondence.
