Isa Genzken

August 2021—October 2021

Hemd/Jacke [Shirt/Jacket] (1998) by Isa Genzken (German, b. 1948) is comprised of eighteen painted and collaged shirts and jackets on wire hangers, a key example from the artist’s radically inventive and influential practice. The work transforms found material—in this case, clothing worn by the artist—into dynamic objects blurring the line between painting and sculpture that comment on the relentless cycle of consumer culture.
