Salzburg, Austria.- Galerie Thaddaeus Ropac is proud to show a new set of works by Anselm Kiefer. Under the title “Alkahest”, Kiefer has collected a series of monumental canvases, sculptures and small paintings, all related to basic processes of alchemy. In these works, the mountains become a place of translocation and dissolution of matter, focusing on the correlation between water and stone. Here, the alchemical transmutation of matter always symbolises an inner transformation. The exhibition will be held in the HALLE (Vilniusstrasse 13), a venue specially designed for large-scale exhibits, and in the gallery’s premises at Mirabellplatz 2. “Alkahest” is on view until September 24th.
