Painting should be sexy.
– Günther Förg
The second chapter of Our interesting life, a year-long exhibition, opens concurrently with Plastic Waves. The new episode presents Günther Förg’s (1952-2013) epic 5-panel painting Metro 3 (2001) in the gallery window. Metro 3 was commissioned to be displayed in the conference room of the Metro AG corporate headquarters in Düsseldorf. It is a rare example of Förg’s seminal color field painting and has never before been seen in public.
