Description:
HERMANN NITSCH (b. 1938) Untitled , 2007 signed and dated 'Hermann Nitsch '07' (on the reverse); inscribed 'HF_SV_02_08' (on the stretcher) acrylic on canvas 78 3/4 x 59in. (200 x 150cm) Footnotes Provenance Galleria de Foscherari, Bologna. Private Collection, Gravina, Puglia. Acquired from the above by the present owner. This work is accompanied by a certificate of authenticity issued by the artist's studio. We are grateful to Hermann Nitsch for his assistance in cataloging this lot. "I am mainly a person who works with immediate materials and incidents. I try to produce real events in my theater, which can be experienced with all five senses, thus being an artistic synthesis. That's my effort: to deal with immediate color, real flesh, real entrails, the human body. In addition, my work is also more or less a psychoanalytic realization of subconscious associations. I am a great admirer of Freud and Jung. Myths of all times play an important role in my work. It's almost a philosophical event, an ontology, a search for one's self—but not like Heidegger teaches. Though I hold him in high esteem while resenting his political views. Since early antiquity, many have dealt with the phenomena of existence. I do that too" 1 – Hermann Nitsch Through his mixed-media work, Viennese Actionist Hermann Nitsch aims to confront and challenge one's perception of existence and experience. A multimedia artist who is as at ease with controversy as he is experimenting with diverse materials, Nitsch received global attention this year when the Museo Jumex in Mexico City unexpectedly cancelled a major retrospective of his work. His career centers on a philosophical ambition to stage works of art that claim all five of our senses, however, the means through which he achieves his desired level of sensory experience are not always met with understanding. Nitsch, born in 1938 at the outset of the Second World War, was deeply influenced by his upbringing in the Roman Catholic Church, a religion that entrances the worshipper during the Eucharist, from the burning of incense to the drinking of wine. He often explores Biblical themes and imagery using his own artistic language. In several compositions of the Crucifixion where the act of the 'splatter' or throwing paint is an integral part of the piece, Nitsch utilizes the composition of the crucifixion, at times employing animal carcasses and his own blood, an element which has been widely protested by animal rights groups. The 52nd work in the series, the artist refers to Untitled (2007) as "shüttbild": splattered paint canvas. At heart a provocateur, Nitsch's recent works, such as Untitled challenge the status quo in a more accessible manner. Untitled speaks to the influence of Post-Modern masters like Francis, Pollock, and Kline who taught Nitsch that painting could have the same olfactory effect as theatre. Splatters of brightness on a classically industrial material, linen burlap, call into question the intensity of the human experience in the face of the mundane. The artist describes his goal in painting; that he does "not want to reproduce anything that already existed in nature, but rather what is concretely played out on the surface itself, the visual fabric, which itself or its impact are shown." 2 Nitsch was deeply saddened by the cancellation of his show in Mexico. While he understands that his work has shock value, the last-minute decision in February, 2015 was "a different kind of shocking." 3 His means of expression may not always be accepted, but the cancellation confirms the massive impact Nitsch's work is capable of. 1.

LA BIOGRAFIA DI Hermann Nitsch

Herman NITSCH , artista austriaco, nasce a Vienna nel 1938.
Dal 1957 si dedica alla concezione del suo “Orgien Mysterien Theater”, il teatro delle orge e dei misteri; “Orgien Mysterien Theater” coinvolge tutti e cinque i sensi e, con intenti freudianamente liberatori, gli elementi profondi affiorano attraverso uno stato di eccitazione psico-fisica.
I primordiali istinti umani, che l’artista ritiene repressi dalle norme e dalle imposizioni sociali, riemergono durante le sue performance; ricorda l’artista: “il colore della carne, del sangue e delle interiora era diventato importante.
Dominava il rosso.
Il monocromatismo assunse un ruolo arcaico.
Tutto si orientava verso il colore dell’estasi, della vittima del sacrificio, della passione, del sangue, della carne”.
Nel 1961, con Günter Brus e Otto Müehl, a cui si aggiungerà Rudolf Schwarzkogler, forma il gruppo artistico del “Wiener Aktionismus” (Azionismo Viennese), importando in Austria le tematiche della pittura gestuale.
Blood Organ è il titolo della prima “Aktion” messa in scena alla Parinetgasse nel 1962 a cui ne seguono più di un centinaio, portando con sé anche vari processi e tre pene detentive.
Nel 1971 acquista come luogo cultuale delle sue Azioni il castello di Prinzendorf an der Zaya a sessanta chilometri da Vienna.
