with Simon Starling

In this video essay, Simon Starling gives an introduction to The Pencil of Menzel & The Path on the Wolf, his seventh solo exhibition with neugerriemschneider. For this show, Starling immerses himself in the world of 19th-century German artist Adolph Menzel (1815 – 1905), a painter who worked at the time of photography’s inception. This show comprises photography, installation, sculpture and facsimile paintings that redeploy Menzel’s work in an exploration of scale, place and time.
