Hanne Darboven

20 Jan 2012–18 Mar 2012


This is the first solo exhibition by German artist Hanne Darboven in the UK. Born in Hamburg in 1941 Darboven studied at the Hochschule für bildende Künste before moving to New York in 1966. During her short time there her work became associated with the beginnings of conceptual and minimal art. She moved back to her family home in 1968 and continued to live and work there among an extraordinary collection of disparate cultural artefacts until her death in 2009. Although her work is largely informed by the principles of these movements there is an intimacy to its production that operates in contrast to an often rigid and regulated appearance.
