Edition No. 11
Günther Förg, "Kleeblatt", 2000
Imagine you are guest in Günter Förg's atelier in Areuse. In the artist's Swiss quarters, there are piles of porfotlios of prints, photos of his work and paintings by him and his wife Ika Huber. On the walls, there are small, remarkable water color paintings to be discovered and on the tables, windowsills and mantelpiece, exceptional Scandinavian pottery from the turn of the century. On one of the atelier's tables, you discover the ornamental glaze of an extraordinary vase from 1890. It originates from the Danish architect and artisan Thorvald Bindesbøll (1846-1908), who, as one of the first artists to be influenced by Japanese ceramics, contributed to the pre-1890 renaissance of Danish ceramic art. His very personal and fantastic ornamental elements - of unusual appearance for that time - have now become, in the year 2000, model for the Cloverleaf Edition Nr. 11 by Günther Förg. During his exhibition in Deutsche Guggenheim, they are installed as one large sculptural piece which, as the exhibition progresses, disbands into its individual elements, cloverleaves - available in seven distinctive colors.
Clay, glazed; available in seven colors.
