German artist Isa Genzken at David Zwirner Gallery

Isa Genzken

Paris New York

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of recent work by the German artist Isa Genzken, on view at the gallery’s Paris location.

The show will feature a large-scale installation of Genzken’s recent “tower” sculptures. These works stem from Genzken’s decades-long fascination with architecture and urban skylines. At once makeshift and monumental, these architectonic forms consist of vertical structures of medium-density fiberboard adorned with mirror foil, spray paint, and other media, complicating the distinctions between interior and exterior space.

Also on view will be a recent group of aluminum wall-mounted panel works. This will be the artist’s fifth solo exhibition with David Zwirner and her first solo show in Paris since 2010. The exhibition coincides with a major presentation of Genzken’s early work at the Kunstmuseum Basel.
