Barbara Gross Galerie is collaborating with the London gallery Hollybush Gardens to present an exhibition of large-format graphics by Andrea Büttner.
Beggars is a series of woodcuts depicting symbolically reduced, veiled figures in postures of supplication. With this motif, Büttner articulates the interplay between poverty and shame, giving and receiving, hiding and display.
In the Phone Etchings, Büttner shows the individual traces made by her finger on the display of her smartphone while searching in the internet. Recalling abstract paintings, the prints illuminate how our “movements” in virtual space are ultimately linked back to the body.
