Description: Signed, dated, titled, editioned in pencil on the reverse of the plastic board and with dedication. Numbered 5/12. "The world can seem richer and more generous in disclosing its meanings when we are freed from its pressing fullness to contemplate its fixed, flattened image on a piece of paper. The effect is all the more seductive when [...] the photographer was already remote from the scene, whose antlike actors consequently seem all the more purposeful because blissfully unaware of the eye that regards them. Our Olympian detachment makes the familiar strange to us , and, like benign extraterrestrials who have unexpectedly encountered an inhabited planet, we study the view with disinterested curiosity, free equally of urgency and malice." (Peter Galassi, Gursky's world, in: Peter Galassi (ed.), Andreas Gursky, exhib.cat. Museum of Modern Art New York, New York 2001, p. 23). 75 x 58 cm (100.8 x 83.5 cm) Chromogenic print on plastic board Matted firmly and framed under glass

Andreas Gursky, Schwimmbad/Teneriffa, 1987

Estimate: Log in or create account to view price data

Description: Signed, dated, titled and editioned in pencil on the verso. Print 7 from an edition of 10. In this early, still small-scale work by Andreas Gursky­- the artist only started making large-scale prints of his works when he began working with large format cameras and digital image processing at the end of the 1980s - the photographer's affinity for geometrically divided image structure and detailed structures paired with painterly colour scheme and a “romantic” view on sceneries already becomes apparent. This preference for distance to the picture's object typical to the artist is shown in the choice of a standpoint that is far away and high up. Bathing guests - in small groups or individuals - are crowded around the angular-shaped, turquoise blue pool on deck chairs in the low evening sun, minute, as if arisen from a world of toys. The chairs form a detailed structure reminiscent of a scattered flower décor on a light surface. The architectonically structured order of the spectacular hotel complex build-into the rocky slopes contrasts with the wild spray of the roaring sea portrayed in the upper third of the image, the people seemingly unaware of its threatening proximity.

GURSKY, ANDREAS(Leipzig 1955 - lebt und arbeitet in Düsseldorf)Flugzeug Düsseldorf. 1989.Farbfotografie, c-Print. 25/30. Verso signiert: Andreas Gursky. Darstellung 31,5 x 45,5 cm auf Kodak-Fotopapier 41 x 51 cm.Provenienz: Privatsammlung Schweiz.Andreas Gursky gehört zu den bekanntesten Fotografen der Zeitgenössischen Kunst. Seine Ausbildung an der Düsseldorfer Kunstakademie bei Bernd und Hilla Becher hat seine künstlerische Entwicklung entscheidend mitgeprägt, so dass sich charakterische Merkmale der Bechers auch in seiner Fotografie wiederfinden: formale Klarheit, konstante und helle Beleuchtung und die Entwicklung von Bildtypen hin zur Serialität. Jedoch ist auch Individualität ein wichtiges Ziel der Bechers und so entwickelt Gursky in seinen Werken zwar bestimmte Bildtypen, geht aber nicht den Schritt in die Serialität. Das vorliegende Werk beispielsweise stammt aus einer Reihe von Fotografien um den Flughafen Düsseldorf, deren inhaltliche Verbindung der Flughafen ist, die aber jeweils eine andere Szene und somit eine andere Wirklichkeit abbilden. Der Betrachter bei 'Flugzeug Düsseldorf' steht auf einer Wiese, vor ihm erstreckt sich ein kleiner Tümpel, dahinter eine kleine Anhöhe. Nichts weist auf den Flughafen hin, wäre da nicht das gerade startende Flugzeug. In 'Flughafen Düsseldorf I' von 1984 stehen Sonntagsspaziergänger an einer Absperrung zum Flughafen, und in 'Flughafen Düsseldorf II' von 1994 steht ein Mann einsam auf dem riesigen Rollfeld. 'Der Zuschauer wird stiller Zeuge eines Augenblicks, in dem eine Szenerie, ein Ereignis, eine infinitesemiale Bewegung festgehalten werden - von den Akteuren unbemerkt und auch kaum beeinflussbar.' (zit. Felix Zdenek, in: Ausst.Kat.: Andreas Gursky. Fotografien 1984 - 1993, Deichtorhallen Hamburg, 4.02. - 10.4.1994, S. 5). Andreas Gursky bildet die Wirklichkeit ab, verändert sie manchmal, aber er kommentiert in seinen Werken nie, obwohl er durch die subjektive Wahl der Motive, wie z.B. Tourismus, Fabrikarbeit, Massenveranstaltungen, Politik, gesellschaftliche Themen anspricht. Künstlerisch stellt er an uns Betracher eine grosse Herausforderung: 'Landschaft und Stadtlandschaft, Natur und bebaute Umwelt werden bei Gursky nicht voraussetzungslos dargestellt: Sie stehen in Beziehung zu vorhandenen Strategien der bildenden Kunst, zu Formulierungen, die es - sowohl auf individueller Ebene als auch auf einer Metaebene - bereits gibt.' (zit. Lynne Cooke, in: Ausst.Kat.: Andreas Gursky. Fotografien 1984 bis heute, Kunsthalle Düsseldorf, 29.08. - 18.10.1998, S. 13).

Cat., Oslo, Galleri K, Andreas Gursky, 2002 (another example)CATALOGUE NOTEThe importance of May Day IV was confirmed by the artist himself and the Museum of Modern Art, New York when they chose the work as the cover of the catalogue for his major retrospective in 2001. This exhibition confirmed Gursky as one of the greatest artistic visionaries of his generation. Very much sidelined as a medium until the early 1990s, Gursky has transformed photography into the vehicle for some of today's most exciting and profound conceptual art. Tackling many different aspects of art historical and photographic reference, his work also articulates many serious issues to do with the way that today's generation lives. The presence of May Day IV on the cover of the catalogue for this exhibition underlined the fact that this work was not only a masterpiece of contemporary photography but, like all truly great art, also somehow captured the zeitgeist of its generation.Trading on the strict, subconscious order which permeates all Contemporary existence, Andreas Gursky's photography scans the modern day landscape; assessing, analysing, highlighting and enhancing the gargantuan nature of the containers which enshroud human activity. Having been taught by Bernd and Hilla Becher at the Düsseldorf Kunstakademie in the early 1970s, his art continues their goal of an impersonal objectivity, which was inimical to West Germany's post war photographic development. Informed by the careful arrangements of Minimalism and the visual realization of an idea which was central to Conceptual Art, his photography proposes the world as a series of monumentally-scaled, beautifully packaged vitrines of life. Somehow hinting at the organized, engulfing nature of the 'landscapes' which we, as humanity, have created for ourselves, Gursky seizes on these places and moments. He enlarges their photographic reality to create grand tapestries which depict the complexities of Modern life.May Day IV is taken from a groundbreaking series of works which contain large crowds of people within the confines of the photographic frame. Gursky began this particular series in the early 1990s in the wake of the biggest economic slump in recent memory. During that time, the advanced Capitalist dream of the young upwardly mobile stockbroker was collapsing, and with the world falling apart around him, a new culture of ecstatic party revelling was being born in which people danced their way out of depression. As a result of economic cutbacks, people were forced to find alternative forms of entertainment and the cult of the large 'house party', held in underground, illegal sites, was born. So, on the one hand these vast centers of commerce in all of the major city centers of the world were packed with hundreds of stockbrokers attempting to buy and sell their way out of the slump, and on the other, vast warehouses in the middle of nowhere were being packed with revellers attempting to dance away their troubles. Gursky drew parallels between these two phenomenon in some of his most visually astounding works. Focussing solely on the almost claustrophobic gathering of large crowds into small buildings, Gursky witnessed how these spaces had come to possess a vast influence on the quality of human life. More than this, he had come to realize that these hidden, sanctified shrines to dance and the economy possessed a mutual visual compartmentalization, symptomatic of all human areas of consumption. In Gursky's hands the packed Dance- or Stock Exchange- floor, traditionally associated with the frantic hustle and bustle of competition and stress becomes a sublime spectacle of aesthetic order, a joyous explosion of structured color. With the dancer's or trader's hands raised as if in contemplatory prayer to a higher being, the formal structure of their organization is consciously aligned with that of the church and arrangement of color within the congregation knowingly paralleled with the aspirational and meditative experience of Abstract Expressionism.As it totally encompasses the viewer's panorama with its vast explosion of rhythmical color, the spectacular simplicity and beauty of May Day IV mark it out as Gursky's most significant work on the theme of rave parties. Ever since Hieronymous Bosch depicted a massed group of revellers in The Garden of Earthly Delights in the 15th Century, large scale depictions of social spectacle and debauchery have been ever present in art history. However, nowhere has it been presented on such a breathtaking scale as here. As the most politically loaded worker's holiday in the German calendar, May Day provides the opportunity for some of the largest parties and here, Gursky's viewpoint immediately makes us aware that we are the outsiders looking in on a very private activity. With no visible ceiling or floor, the only support structure that the revellers appear to have is the picture frame. Viewed from on-high, the God-like perspective of Gursky's gaze turns the hundreds of revellers into miniature insect-like forms uncannily dwarfed by their environment. As they buzz across the floor, the luminosity of their clothes creates a magnificent tapestry of interlocking colors which expands across the extreme horizon of the viewer's vision. This chaotic group of people seems to be organized by some invisible principle or hidden logic as the huge mass of color appears to sway in one large body towards the right side of the image, creating a magnificent sense of movement. They all appear to be moving in one direction, but Gursky's clever cropping ensures that the target of their motion, if indeed there is one, is obscured.Each individual has become submerged in a mass of crisply delineated, atomized cells which together form a flattened circuit-board like whole. Inviting the eye to scan across the lines of information, one becomes aware of a unique new development for Gursky. In May Day IV he has emphasized the digital nature of his production with an enhanced pixillation of the image to create a heightened grain structure on the surface of the photograph. Thus as one moves closer to the image, not only do smaller narratives within the constructed whole become more visible, but more colors articulate their behavior and begin to break down their very existence. As such, May Day IV presents to us, not necessarily the documentation of an event, but of a beautifully structured organism, a grand tableau which captures and halts the frantic movement of the dancers into a kaleidoscope of color and form. Aligning the sublime bliss of the rave with the Zen-like qualities of a Jackson Pollock 'action' painting or the Minimalist Geometry of a Gerhard Richter Farbfeld, Gursky here posits a highly majestic invitation for us to visit the new cathedrals of Modern Day Religion.

Description: Leipzig signed, dated, titled and numbered 'A. Gursky, 95, Leipzig, 4/5' (on the reverse) c-print mounted behind Plexiglas in artist's frame 731/4 x 97in. (185.8 x 246.4cm.) PROVENANCE Galerie Rodolphe Janssen, Brussels. Monika Sprth Gallery, K”ln. LITERATURE 'Andreas Gursky: Fotografien 1994-1998', Wolfsburg 1998 (another from the edition illustrated in colour, p. 41). NOTES Shot from a distance, the industrial cityscape nonetheless features even the most minute of details, thus appearing as an image of a macrocosm. Although a photograph of the artist's native city, 'Leipzig' bears no trace of nostalgic, romantic feeling and conveys the characteristic distance and objectivity of Gursky's work, a position he adopted from his professors at the State Academy of Art in Dsseldorf, Bernd and Hilla Becher. The horizontal composition of the work, leaving half the space to the sky, embues it with a feeling of calmness and tranquility that contrasts severly with the reality of the messy urban environment of the Eastern German city. Indeed the concentartion of cranes and others industrial elements in the middle-ground comes as a disruption to the silence of the foreground, in which an empty road seems to reflect the void of the sky in the background. In this no man's land, where technology adds an uncanny effect to nature, Gursky suspends the industrial action and makes the image speak through colours and composition. As in all of Gursky's works, 'Leipzig' stands half-way between a objective documentation and subjective delectation.
