Anna Maria Maiolino TUDO ISSO (ALL THAT) at Hauser & Wirth Zurich

  • Hauser & Wirth Zurich 270 Limmatstrasse Zürich, ZH, 8005 Switzerland (map)

Hauser & Wirth presents an exhibition of new and recent work by one of Brazil’s most significant contemporary artists, Anna Maria Maiolino. With a practice spanning drawing, printmaking, poetry, film, performance, installation and sculpture, Maiolino relentlessly explores notions of subjectivity and the self. The artist’s deeply formative migration from postwar Southern Italy to a politically unstable South America, and her linguistic passage from Italian to Portuguese, engendered an enduring fascination with, and acute interrogation of, identity. Through fragmentation and abstraction, Maiolino’s surfaces are rich with metaphor, alluding to, suggesting and questioning language, sexuality, desire and the unconscious. ‘TUDO ISSO (ALL THAT)’ is the artist’s first solo exhibition in Switzerland and comprises a group of recent drawings, delineated in the artist’s distinctive gestural blots and traces, alongside new sculpture and a room dedicated to video works.
