Gregor Hildebrandt,
Alle Schläge
sind erlaubt

@ Almine
Rech Gallery
— 

The ancient war 
game of chess 
neatly makes the 
point that there 
are always rules 
demarcating a 
field of endless 
possibilities... 

The exhibition

Translated, the
title of Hildebrandt's
latest solo offering
reads: ‘No Holds 
Barred’ — alluding
to the notion of
artistic freedom
while adhering to
a self-given set of
rules. For this show
the German artist
has combined a
maze-like installation
with smaller abstract
works, including a
series of acrylic
paintings featuring
magnetic cassette
coating and
adhesive tape. 

Gregor's 
references: 
Audiovisual mediums
such as cassettes,
films / videotapes
and vinyl records. 

I want to create a
building inside 
the
Almine Rech 
space..
I wish to 
build a
house, 
or a city,
but 
actually it’s
only 
a sculpture,
it’s 
only a game.”
