The present relic painting by Hermann Nitsch shows two patches and a sanitary napkin on a painted canvas with traces of animal blood. Nitsch's actions were conceived as synthesis of the arts, accompanied by music and shouting chorus .These 'orgiastic performances' aimed to create an aesthetic ecstasy for the viewer. With his relic paintings, the artist also wanted to provoke disgust, in order to bring the viewer to reflect on displaced symbolic topics as blood or death. The work is signed and dated in pencil ‘Hermann Nitsch 06’’’’ lower right and numbered ‘5/50’’’’ lower left. It is in good condition, showing a small tear in the canvas to the lower margin and a tiny hole within the depiction. The dimensions are 50 x 50 cm. Hermann Nitsch (b. 1938) Hermann Nitsch was born in Vienna in 1938. He studied at the Austrian Federal Education and Research Institute for Graphics in Vienna and then worked as a commercial artist at the Museum of Technology. In the late 1950s, he created his first painting actions and conceived the concept of the ‘Orgien Mysterien Theater’’’’ . His public actions caused repeated confrontations with the Viennese authorities, and Nitsch moved to Germany in 1968. In the following years, Nitsch performed his actions in many European and North American cities, enjoying great success. Since the early 1970s, Nitsch held his regular ‘Orgien-Mysterien-Spiele’’’’ on the grounds of the castle Prinzendorf. In 1972, the artist participated in the documenta 5 in Kassel, curated by Harald Szeemann, and has since then been honored with numerous awards. Works by Hermann Nitsch are on display in the collections of the Centre Pompidou in Paris, the MoMA in New York, the Pinakothek der Moderne in Munich, the Museum Ludwig in Cologne and others.

Description:
Hermann Nitsch, 1938 Wien, lebt in Prinzendorf OHNE TITEL, 2001 Öl über farbiger Terragrafie auf Karton. 60 x 94 cm. Signiert, datiert und bezeichnet „handüberarbeitet“. Unter Glas gerahmt. Unikat. Die Terragrafie wurde als neue Drucktechnik von einer israelischen Firma entwickelt. Dabei werden moderne Bindemittel, Pigmente sowie Sand miteinander verbunden. Der Sand für den Terragraph-Druck wird nur an speziellen Stellen der Wüsten von Negev und Judäa gewonnen, anschließend neutralisiert und getrocknet. Im ersten Schritt wird das Papier mit Silikonlack versiegelt, um die Sand- und Ölschichten deutlich von der Blattoberfläche hervorzuheben. Der Sand wird zu verschiedenen Körnergrößen vermahlen, je nachdem, welcher Effekt erzielt werden soll. Der Druck selbst erfolgt mittels von Sieben wie bei der Serigrafie. Von der farbigen Terragraphie sind nur wenige Exemplare feststellbar, bei denen es sich um „Artist‘s proofs“ handelt, eine Auflage wurde vermutlich nicht geschaffen. Die Übermalung der Grafik verleiht der Arbeit Unikatcharakter. Einwandfreie Erhaltung. (980471) (18) Hermann Nitsch 1938 Vienna, lives in Prinzendorf UNTITLED, 2001 Oil over colour terragraph on cardboard. 60 x 94 cm. Signed, dated and inscribed “handüberarbeitet” (re-worked by hand). Framed. Unique work. Terragraph is a unique printing process, developed in Israel. The process involves combining advanced binding materials, pigment and sand. The sand of the terragraph is collected in specific areas of the Negev and Judean deserts, then neutralized and dried. To make a terragraph, first the paper is sealed with a silicone varnish to keep the sand and oil binders in relief on the paper's surface. The sand is then ground to different coarseness of grains, depending on the effect required. The image is then printed through a screen, as with a serigraph. Only few copies of terragraphs can be found, which are “artist's proofs“, there probably was no edition. Since the print has been extensively re-worked by the artist, it is unique. Mint condition.
