About the work
Planar Panel: A4, Five Whites, 2015 was created exclusively for the Whitechapel Gallery to accompany Andrea Zittel’s works in Adventures of the Black Square: Abstract Art and Society, 1915- 2015 exhibition. In a series of 15, plus 2 artist's variants and 1 archive variant for Whitechapel Gallery, each wool weaving is unique with its own subtle textural variations and, inspired by her interest in the plane and panel, references A4 paper in scale.
About the artist
Born in Escondido, California in 1965 Zittel has created functional art objects – furniture, clothes and utensils – that meet her everyday needs and environment.
She explores how our psychological structures, belief systems, social values and rules are manifested as physical objects around us. Her experimental practice has extended to producing complete living spaces and vehicles through which she examines sustainability, self-sufficiency and the tension between autonomy and isolation. More recently Zittel has investigated the iconic Minimalist sculptures of Donald Judd and Carl Andre, and their capacity to confuse the role of the horizontal surface. She replicates yet modifies their forms using a variety of surface textures, which complicated their meaning and function.
Andrea Zittel lives and works in Joshua Tree, California and is represented by White Cube Gallery.
