Rosemarie Trockel: Drawings

Edited by Anita Haldemann, Christoph Schreier. Text by Gregory Williams, Brigid Doherty.

The German artist Rosemarie Trockel (born 1952) adapts a variety of media to address contentious matters of gender. Trockel is perhaps best known for her "knit" canvases of the mid-1980s, in which lengths of knitted wool patterned with political and consumer motifs such as the hammer and sickle or the Playboy bunny were hung on stretchers to resemble conventional paintings. In a gently humorous work from 1988, Trockel fitted a steel cube with six hot plates, in a simultaneous nod to the pervasive masculinity of Minimalism and the feminine domain of cooking. Regardless of media, Trockel begins each new work with ink, charcoal, pencil, collaged, or computer drawings. These serve as studies, charting her observations and methods, and also constitute an independent body of work. This publication presents a selection of graphic prints and a series of drawings and collages made especially for this book, along with designs for the book itself.

FROM THE BOOK
"Her oeuvre is full of works that push back generic boundaries; in addition to the famous wool pictures, there are works with stove motifs the videos and ceramics, to mention but a few. The drawings are the crucial constant in her impressively wide-ranging output. What makes them so fascinating is the immediacy with which they capture on paper not just the most fleeting thought but mature reflections as well. All the themes serving as points of departure for Trockel's other groups of works are to be found here. Drawing for her is an intensely private pursuit that calls for a certain degree of self-forgetting and rests on her mastery of that medium. Masking this mastery, however, is an unaffected awkwardness, a preference for sundry modes of expression that the artist unashamedly turns to her own advantage. Although the drawings are guided less by questions of form than of content, Trockel's delight in experimenting on paper is clearly apparent."

Christian Muller, excerpted from his foreword to Rosemarie Trockel: Drawings, Collages and Book Drafts.
