Carré d’Art - Musée d’art contemporain, Nîmes, France
Peter Friedl uses different mediums, drawings, photographs, installations and films. His work focuses on representations that summon power, gender, narrative, identity, language and history. For him, images always contain blind spots, and the works he proposes manifest tensions between personal and collective history. The exhibition will highlight his interest in literature and theater, which are fictional spaces that allow us to approach reality in another way. Three important works of the artist are part of the collection of Carré d’Art.
Peter Friedl was born in 1960 in Austria. He currently lives in Berlin. He has had important solo exhibitions at the MACBA in Barcelona, the Kunsthalle Basel, Witte de With in Rotterdam and has participated in several Documenta and biennials. In the spring of 2019 an important solo exhibition, Teatro, opened at the Kunsthalle Wien and he is presented at the Sharjah Biennale with a new production.
