My favourite Artwork

 

In MY FAVOURITE ARTWORK, five artists present their favourite work from another female artist in new and unexpected contexts.

The ‘Readymade’ artist Haegue Yang builds installations out of everyday objects and places them in a new context. She presents her favourite work by Sophie Taeuber-Arp: the Coup Dada. To see if it will survive outside in public, she lets it fly.

Time and its perception are the focus of Mexican artist Julieta Aranda. In MY FAVOURITE ARTWORK, she presents her favourite artwork, ‘Chronotopes & Dioramas’, by the French artist Dominique Gonzalez-Foerster: there an empty shop becomes the projection surface for a frozen world hidden behind glass.

Interwoven worlds and rooms full of threads: much like her favourite artist Magdalena Abakanowicz, Chiharu Shiota creates enormous room installations out of wool which unleash a flow of associations out of memories. In MY FAVOURITE ARTWORK she presents Abakanowicz’s installation ‘Embryologie’ and covers Berlin’s advertising spaces with posters of it.

The Swiss installation artist Claudia Comte presents the work ‘Continuum’ by Bridge Riley – and builds a whole monument to her deep in the Palm Springs desert. Inspired by Riley’s work, she builds a giant wall out of geometric forms which trick the eye with optical illusions.

In the series’ final episode, Berlin native Tina Born presents a photograph by Claude Cahun. Born’s own multifaceted work is often concerned with ‘united opposition’ – here she presents ‘Je tends les bras’ by Claude Cahun and brings it into the public eye by printing it as a photo on T-shirts.

In ARTE-Creative’s new web series MY FAVOURITE ARTWORK, artists Haegue Yang, Julieta Aranda, Chiharu Shiota, Claudia Comte and Tina Born presents artworks of their female colleagues.
