Cameos Calls Dust | 08.04.2022–04.06.2022
Galerie Christian Lethert is pleased to present the solo exhibition Cameos Calls Dust by artist Fergus Feehily in which he subtly intervenes in the architecture of the exhibition space.
Feehily gave us these notes, remarking that they may or may not be useful:
A man stood outside a store, he was dressed as most Hare Krishna devotees in shades of orange, and tried to talk to anyone who passed. He was under a grey Northern sky. Was he in this street or was he in New Delhi?
I have long been interested in the lone actor, it could be snooker player Alex ›Hurricane‹ Higgins, Harold Lloyd hanging from a teetering arm of a clock or the writer, such as Elizabeth Taylor, sitting alone at her desk.
Elizabeth Taylor wrote in her 1947 novel, A View of the Harbour: No one asks us to write. If we stop, who will implore us to go on? The only goodness that will ever come out of it is surely this moment now, wondering if »vague« will do better than »faint«, or »faint« than »vague«, and what is to follow; putting one word alongside another, like matching silks, a sort of game.
Fergus Feehily, born in Dublin in 1968, lives in Berlin. His work has been shown in numerous exhibitions including X Museum, Beijing, The Douglas Hyde Gallery, Dublin, Walker Art Center, Minneapolis, Dallas Museum of Art, Tokyo Opera City Art Gallery and the Irish Museum of Modern Art. You & i are Earth, edited by the artist was published by Paper Visual Art, Berlin last year which included texts by Mary Heilmann, Naotaka Hiro, Paul P, Jack Hanley and others. Portals, a new artist book has just been released by backbonebooks, Berlin and later in the year a new book on the artist will be published by Zolo Press, Mexico City/Brussels. Feehily will take part in the show Yuugen at CCA, Andratx this summer and exhibit at Lulu, Mexico City in the autumn.
At Art Düsseldorf, which will take place from 8 to 10 April 2022, we will show the solo presentation Raumsichten by artist Lutz Fritsch (booth J08). On the Art & Square directly opposite we present large-scale sculptures by Gereon Krebber.
On Wednesday, 15 June 2022 we will open a guest exhibition curated by Ann Christine Freuwörth.
