1 pound Strawberries

About Hans-Peter Feldmann

After winning the Guggenheim’s 2010 Hugo Boss Prize, Hans-Peter Feldmann famously cashed his $100,000 check and pinned it in dollar bills to the museum’s walls, raising questions about the value of art. He is known for his examinations of seriality in daily life, as in his 1973 work All the clothes of a woman (photographs of every item in a woman’s wardrobe) or 2005’s One Pound Strawberries (each fruit that constitutes a pound). By assembling images and objects in unlikely or un-noteworthy combinations, Feldmann reveals their embedded emotional associations.

German, b. 1941, Dusseldorf, Germany, based in Düsseldorf, Germany
