Vernissages | 'Dieter Roth. Björn Roth' at Hauser & Wirth

Martin Creed lobby/staircase installation
Yesterday 'Dieter Roth. Bjorn Roth' opened as the inaugural exhibition of Hauser & Wirth, 18th Street.  The site specific installation recreates several works from the oeuvre of the late artist Dieter Roth (1930-1998), constructed by the artist's son Björn Roth, assisted by his sons Oddur and Einar, seamlessly exhibition the work of three generations. Roth's work was surely involving many media, materials, scales and processes —including painting, sculpture, video, performance and even chocolate and sugar.
