Jury lista

 

MADELEINE HATZ

Madeleine Hatz, educated at the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm from 1975 –1980, has been active on the New York art scene for more than three decades. Her abstract paintings, often large-format, havegrainy textures and thick layers of paint. Their surface is evocative of the crust of the earth seen from an airplane window. An indescribable tempest rages across these canvases, which at the same time radiate a liberating sense of calm.

 

Madeleine Hatz’s work is characterized by a tension between two poles: the contemplative and the active. As the world’s political climate hardened in the early 2000’s, she expanded her practice towards activism and performance, often at personal risk. She has made street actions at Tiananmen Square and Rockefeller Center, among other places.

 

Songs from the Underground in 2017 was the most comprehensive exhibition of Madeleine Hatz’s work to date. It contained 48 paintings as well as film clips of her performances and street activism from 2000 –2017.
