Frieze New York : Greta SCHÖDL

1 - 5 May 2019

Richard Saltoun Gallery returns to Frieze New York with a solo presentation of work by Greta SCHÖDL (b. 1929, Hollabrunn, Austria) at Stand S7. 

 

Now in her 90s, Schödl has been working in the field of poesia visiva (or visual poetry) for almost 60 years. Active from the 1960s, when the presence of female artists using text represented a minority, Schödl has honed a unique visual language that echoes the fervent repetition of Hanne Darboven or the symbolism of Tomaso Binga. 

 

Schödl's practice has also encompassed subversive performance pieces that reference her present life in Italy and the stereotypes associated with Italian culture and society, aspects of which will be showcased at the gallery's presentation for Frieze New York 2019.
