Ugo Rondinone

Ersteraugustzweitausendundzwanzig, 2020
Watercolor on canvas, artist´s frame
28 x 40,6 cm

For over twenty years Ugo Rondinone has been crossing the boundaries between media and disciplines. The work of this internationally famous Swiss Artist is often based on everyday issues and subjects that take on a poetic dimension as a result of their isolation, amplification, or specific material treatment. His landscapes, suns, human figures, and still lifes probe the emotional and psychological depths of human experience in relation to nature. In highly artificial installations featuring diverse references to art history and popular culture, he creates suggestive atmospheres that capture our modern-day attitude toward life. Rondinone is a multimedia artist at the intersection of Conceptual Art and Romanticism whose imagery confronts the viewers with a new reality of which they inevitably become a part.

nude in the landscape at the Belvedere 21 is Rondinone’s first solo show in an Austrian museum. In the sunlit glass pavilion of the Belvedere 21, the artist brings together new groups of works from the classic genres of the nude and the landscape. Alongside landscapes—sculptures shaped from soil that make reference among other things to Minimal Art—designed especially for Vienna, the exhibition also presents hyperrealistically designed nudes—seemingly introverted nude figures made of clear wax and soil.
