Neo Rauch: "HIRT", 2001
"He is going to jump at you from the canvas a couple of times yet", announced Neo Rauch in a telephone call during the preparation of his exhibition at Deutsche Guggenheim. The first sketch for his "Mutant" ended up in a Swiss collection after having been exhibited in New York. It was only as he was drawing the sketches for his next work, "HIRT", that Rauch had the idea to use a different medium to present his figure. Thus, in co-operation with the Lichttechnisches Werk in Leipzig, Rauch developed the lamp in the shape of a sheep-dog pointing the way - an object whose full quality can only be appreciated in the dark. Painted versions of the "HIRT" can also be discovered in Rauch's new paintings for Deutsche Guggenheim.
