Lot description
Ohne Titel (Selbstportrait). 2002/03.
Oil on canvas.
54.5 x 30 cm (21.4 x 11.8 in).

• A monumental portrait in a small format.
• The artist's desire and vulnerability are masterfully staged.
• Ghenie's world of images is permeated with the unconscious and uncanny.
• In 2015 Adrien Ghenie created the Romanian National Pavilion at the 56th Venice Biennial
.

PROVENANCE: Private collection Austria.

“On one hand, I work on an image in an almost classical vein: composition, figuration, use of light. On the other hand, I do not refrain from resorting to all kinds of idioms, such as the surrealist principle of association or the abstract experiments which foreground texture and surface.”
(Adrian Ghenie)
