Galerie Max Hetzler is pleased to present an exhibition with sculptures by Robert Grosvenor at Bleibtreustraße 15/16, his seventh solo exhibition with the gallery.
Since the mid-1960s, Robert Grosvenor has created a diverse oeuvre spanning sculpture, photography and drawing. The artist is especially known for his audacious sculptures and objects which straddle the line between art, engineering and architecture, and which he describes as “ideas that operate between floor and ceiling.”1 Parallels have often been drawn between his work – which is simple and often geometric in character – and that of Minimalist figures. However, whilst Grosvenor was included in seminal exhibitions of the movement in the 1960s, he refutes Minimalism’s programmatic claims, and favours instead, a sensual directness. Due to the absence of a trademark form, material or concept in his practice, as well as an unwillingness to rationalise his works through language, Grosvenor’s artistic output remains elusive and hard to pin down.
