Hamid Zénati: All-Over

Stiftung Haus der Kunst München  |  Visual Arts  |  2022  |  Germany
“All-Over” takes up a term often used by the artist himself to describe his approach to textile design. While an art-historical link to a certain method in painting is implied (all-over paintings typically lack a dominant focal point, the main motif, a spatial effect, or an indication for up and down, and often continue beyond the frame or edge itself), “All-Over” more importantly hints at the artist’s free and obsessive practice, painting on everything and taking in various cultural inspirations.
