Andreas Hofer: Phantom Gallery
Library Shelf Location 18.HOFE
Publication Date 2009
Description Agile appropriation and the reinvention of existing locations are at the heart of Andreas Hofer’s exhibition practice. His shows are often set in spaces cut loose from any associations with the presentation of art: rooms and abodes that are either still occupied or marked by the histories of those who have previously dwelt or worked in them. For Phantom Gallery Hofer built rooms characterized by emptiness and absence. There were no pictures, only the shadows of objects as traces on the walls. His love of doubling spaces, of confusing and dismantling boundaries, led to the exhibition being shown simultaneously in two cities: in Zurich visitors entered a room within a room, a gallery within the Hauser & Wirth gallery; in Los Angeles the show appeared as a gallery within a commercial stretch of a street on Sunset Boulevard.
