ART IN THE MAKING. Albertina head of conservation Eva Glück in an Interview with Ofer Lellouche
On the occasion of his exhibition at the Albertina in fall 2023 the museum writes: "The work of the artist, who lives in Tel Aviv and Paris, is characterized by a fixation on the human form and on the head and face, which makes it akin to that of Alberto Giacometti or the self-portraits of Jim Dine. Facing us, his figures are mute. Despite their passivity, solely by their presence, these bodies confront us with the question of being through their shocking power and unsurpassable intensity. In their constant repetition, Lellouche’s self-portraits are a form of continuous self-reflection that comprises inner and outer perception at the same time. Reality and image alternately adapt to each other in a relationship of tension, while the artist assures himself of his own existence.
In the ART IN THE MAKING series, the Albertina invites artists to talk about their working methods. This time Eva Glück, Chief Conservator of the Albertina, talks to Ofer Lellouche not only about the subtleties of his prints, but also about what print can do for him that other art techniques cannot.https://www.albertina.at
