Wilhelm Sasnal
@ Hauser & Wirth


The exhibition: 
Presents new
works by Sasnal 
informed by
recent travels to
America’s southern
states, and the
events and crises
currently dominating
world affairs —
shown alongside
extracts from the
artist’s latest
feature length film,
titled ‘The Sun, 
the 
Sun Blinded
Me
,’ which borrows
its trajectory from 
Albert Camus’s
1942 novel
The Stranger’. 

The artist's 
preoccupation: 
Staying engaged
with the world
we live in, and
connecting the 
present with 
the past.

“Motifs such 
as birds, cowboy
boots and corporate
logos invite the
viewer to make
associations with
the current
political climate,
but, as in his films,
the paintings
navigate between
figuration and
abstraction,
eschewing
a definitive
narrative or
agenda.”
