Following his first ever exhibit in Hong Kong early this year, Wolfgang Tillmans takes over David Zwirner in New York City for his new “How likely is it that only I am right in this matter?” project. The show is a combination of Tillmans recent and new work that highlights three major mediums photography, video and sound.
This time around, he forgoes his signature style of floor-to-ceiling installations in favor of a more minimal, linear presentation for his photographs.
For video and sound, Wolfgang explores a style of narration. In his new film Rebar, the artist causes movements and unexpected musicality of steel rods at a construction site. Also included in the exhibition, is his new sound piece, I want to make a film. Playing within a near-empty, darkened room, the instillation features a male voice discussing plans for a film about the computing power of smartphones in a room filled with chairs and other furniture.
Take a closer look at Wolfgang Tillmans “How likely is it that only I am right in this matter?” exhibit in the gallery above. The instillation is open from now until October 20, 2018 at David Zwirner 19th street location in NYC.
