Our last solo-show with Aubertin was in the year 2015 – a few weeks before he suddenly died (with catalogue, only a few copies are left).
On the occasion of DC Open Galleries 2018 we are presenting recent and older works from the French ZERO-Artist, who participated also in the early 60is at the ZERO-group exhibitions. He was also represented with important works in the big retrospective 2014/2015 at New York, Berlin and Amsterdam.
Just as his friend and role model Yves Klein Aubertin found his means of expression in the use of monochrome colours. In our exhibition we are presenting the typical red works from Aubertin in all facets. There is a lot to tell about the colour red with its intrusive soul and it’s emotional-triggering effect. The main characteristics are: “Its appeal, its magic, its movement, its light, its vibration, its emotional effects and its tactical presence” (catalogue from the big ZERO-retrospective).
Including the red types of his work we also show examples with the colour gold, black and white as well as different works that deal with the phenomenon “fire”.
