They’re calling it an online exhibit presentation and the drawings are featured alongside a short documentary of the artist in her studio. “It’s a response to the current situation, in the sense that we’re all glued to our devices,” said Marc Payot, president of Hauser & Wirth. “Obviously, we’re not capable of going out into museums and galleries, but we’re still interested in art. This is a possibility to share that.” The drawings on view range from abstract landscapes to strange swirls, black holes and a pair of eyes gazing back at the viewer. There’s a pink butterfly, grass-strewn landscapes.
