Short Description

“VARIOUS THINGS ABOUT LOVE” is a series of approximately 400 works on paper by the Swiss artist Markus Uhr (born 1974 in Baar, lives and works in Leipzig). The series consists of torn-out magazine pages certain details of which captured Uhr's attention; the pages are painted over in black ink, highlighting only the part of the image that interested Uhr most. When referring to this process of covering, hiding, and deleting, Uhr speaks of the “hidden visible.” What has been painted over or blotted out becomes visible in the form of speculation and/or memory in the viewer's imagination. Thus, the viewer becomes an active part of the work. The present publication contains the complete series. The images were rearranged for each double-page spread, with the order of the ensuing image associations based on intrinsic qualities as well as on the artist's selection.

With a text by Mark Gisbourne.
