A FLEXIBLE FABRIC OF INFLEXIBLE PARTS / Tauba Auerbach
19x26 inches, Screen print on metallic Duralar
Signed and numbered in an edition of 50
For her edition with The Song Cave, Tauba Auerbach has gone all out. Metal upon metal, upon metal. Utilizing the close-up pattern of a woven metal fabric, Tauba ran the image through a custom “metallic” digital filter. The staunch metal-ness of the imagery exists in complete opposition to the incredible delicacy of the material that she has chosen to have the image printed on, a Duralar film (which has a super-thin sheet of aluminum vacuum deposited into its surface) with a reflective, mirror-like appearance, whose incredibly fragile rippling and lightness make it nearly ethereal.
Tauba Auerbach’s work is represented by Paula Cooper Gallery in New York City and Standard, Oslo (Norway). Among her list of solo shows include exhibits at the Institute of Contemporary Art (London), Wiels Contemporary Art Center (Belgium), Malmo Kunsthall (Sweden), The Philip Johnson Glass House (Connecticut), as well as group shows at The Whitney Museum of American Art (New York), Centre Pompidou (Paris), and SFMoMA (San Francisco) among others.
