Nathalie Du Pasquier

Fair Game Leipzig

Galerie für Zeitgenössische Kunst, Leipzig

June 7 – September 29, 2019

The exhibition Fair Game Leipzig is an adaptation of a presentation of Nathalie du Pasquier’s work curated by Kate Sutton for the International Centre of Graphic Arts (MGLC) in Ljubljana in November 2018. Prints, graphics, paintings and wall paintings from the last 30 years are shown in a deliberately non-chronological arrangement of the extensive work of the INFORM prize winner 2018, forming a parcours that leads through the rooms of the GfZK old building.

Since the 1980s, Du Pasquier has been an extremely successful artist, working at the interface between design and fine art. She was a founding member of Memphis, an influential postmodern design and architecture collective in Milan. During this time she designed graphic surface structures for numerous textiles and carpets, along with objects and furniture. Some of these designs can be seen at the exhibition. Since 1987, du Pasquier has increasingly devoted herself to painting. Her design is influenced by African fabric patterns, the Wiener Werkstätte and the British Arts and Crafts Movement. Most of her paintings describe the relationship between shapes, objects and spaces. The space and the work form an inseparable whole. Various objects reappear as protagonists in different contexts of her work. The journey through her work is a journey through the world of her things. The game referred to in the ambiguous title is concerned with several things at the same time: playing with things, playing with constructions and compositions in the picture and in the space, the challenge to the viewers, etc.
