Art has one job and that is to make people feel. So how do the Spot Paintings in ‘Günther Förg. Tupfenbilder’ make us feel?
Artist-convener Gaylene Gould’s How Do You Feel experience comes to Hauser & Wirth London, offering you a chance to explore your feelings whilst encountering Günther Förg’s playful works.
Like Förg’s own experiment, the event will allow a small group to explore ‘unlearning’ and play in their own lives through a series of facilitated mindful exercises involving movement, stillness, conversation and drawing. Inspired by phenomenology, you will have the time to notice the sensations, memories and imaginations that emerge when time is spent with the works. This playful session will leave you feeling more aware and connected to the works, each other and yourself. The bespoke experience will be facilitated by Gaylene Gould and Zaynab Bunsie.
Tickets for this event are free, however you will need to book your tickets in advance. If you are able, we encourage attendees to donate to our 2023 charity partner Brixton Soup Kitchen.
‘Günther Förg. Tupfenbilder’ is on view through 29 April 2023.
Günther Förg was a prolific painter, sculptor, graphic designer and photographer whose daring conceptual works incorporate and critique tropes of the sprawling movement known as modernism. This exhibition, in the North Gallery of the London space, displays Förg’s Spot Paintings, the artist’s final series made between 2005 – 2010 before he stopped painting in 2010 after suffering a stroke.
