Perrotin Shanghai is delighted to present the first solo gallery exhibition of German artist Gregor Hildebrandt in mainland China. Following the solo booth presented by Perrotin at West Bund Art & Design 2016 in Shanghai, the show indicates the return of the artist to mainland China.
Hildebrandt's newly created signature paintings, along with a large- scale, site-specific installation, transform the exhibition hall into an imaginary forest where sound becomes matter and matter grows into forms. Exploring aesthetic and conceptual possibilities of obsolete recording media, Hildebrandt constructs his visual vocabulary through the usage of vinyl records, audio and videotapes. His creation is always very personal, imbued with a multitude of references drawn from music, cinema, art, and literature he enjoys. Hildebrandt’s monumental collages and architectonic landscapes build up a visceral experience, a song sung in silence. In his own words, they become "a memorial to different songs that are important to me."
The exhibition's title “Wo du mich liebst beginnt der Wald,” translated as “Where you love me begins the forest,” is a verse from the song "Dolores" by German band Anne released through Grzegorzki Records.
