OLAF METZEL - HANS VON MAREES: ONE APPROACH. Ed. by Joachim Kaak. Neue Pinakothek, Munich, 2017. Published in association with Snoeck Verlagsgesellschaft, Cologne. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Ram Publications, Santa Monica. 192 pp. 20 x 15 cm. ISBN 9783864421792 Bilingual in English and German.
Due date: Forthcoming. Publisher's description: Contemporary German sculptor Olaf Metzel (b. 1952) engages the work of the controversial 19th-century artist Hans von Marees (1837-1887) from a contemporary perspective in Olaf Metzel - Hans von Marees. Some consider von Marees a foundational figure in German modernism; others consider him a failed artist. The double exhibition and accompanying catalog present Metzel's provocative sculptures next to von Marees's figurative and mythological Roman-style paintings. Installation shots and details of both artists' works in this compact publication confidently allow political worlds to collide: Metzel's large aluminum work Lampedusa (2015), built of newspaper articles on the refugee issue, are juxtaposed with the poetic and divine gardens of von Marees's historical painting. Olaf Metzel brings the oeuvre of his colleague up-to-date while at the same time proving the never-ending excitement of artistic provocation. A series of essays by curators, academics, art historians and Metzel himself on the current status of the debate complete the publication.
