About the work
Albert Oehlen frequently juxtaposes images from a variety of different sources to create new humorous and poetic work. Aus dem Nachlass was produced in 2007 to accompany Oehlen's Whitechapel Gallery show I will always Champion Good Painting and combines images of artefacts belonging to Surrealist André Breton, which were about to be sold at auction, with a portrait of Breton.
About the artist
Oehlen was born in Krefield, Germany in 1954 and studied with Sigmar Polke in the 1970s. He came to prominence in the early 1980's alongside Martin Kippenberger with whom he often collaborated. Oehlen was part of a generation of artists who actively sought to reject the dominant cultural values of the time, embracing painting when conceptual art had completely discarded the medium. Throughout his career his work has centred on a singular investigation into painting practice.
Oehlen has had solo exhibitions at the Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Museum of Contemporary Art, Miami; Gagosian, Rome and group shows at Museum of Contemporary Art, Chicago; Saatchi Gallery, London; ICA, London and the Guggenhein, Bilbao. His work is in collections at the Museum fur Modern Kunst, Frankfurt and the Zabludowicz Collection, London.
