Galerie 1, Forum -1 - Centre Pompidou, Paris
The exhibition devoted to the work of Anselm Kiefer by the Centre Pompidou is unprecedented in terms of scope and selection. It provides a retrospective journey through the prolific career of the celebrated German artist from the late Sixties to the present day. Around sixty paintings, brought together for the first time from major private and public collections throughout the world, dialogue with installations, showcases and books in an exhibition designed as a series of dramatic moments in the artist's career, with his entire approval.
In his compositions, he often cites the polyhedron present in Melencolia (1514), the well-known engraving by Albrecht Dürer. Kieferian melancholy lies not in the register of geometry so much as that of grief: grief for a culture sullied by the exploitation brought about by totalitarianism; grief for a Jewish culture, with the addition of a meditation on ruin as a creative principle. This question, which he integrates into our collective present through architectonic references and the materials used in his works, like lead and ash, is an allegory of the vanity of mankind in general and the artist in particular.
