Kiki Kogelnik: Fly Me to the Moon

Kiki Kogelnik: Fly Me to the Moon
Library Shelf Location 18.KOGE
Publication Date 30 Sep 2015

This catalogue was published to coincide with the first solo exhibition in the UK of acclaimed Austrian artist Kiki Kogelnik (1935-1997) at Modern Art Oxford. The publication covers all works featured in the exhibition.

Working in New York in the 1960s, Kogelnik was a well-known artist and contemporary of figures such as Roy Lichtenstein and Andy Warhol. Throughout her career, Kogelnik employed an exuberant palette, which belied its often apocalyptic subjects; from macabre skulls and severed limbs to disembowelled figures. These deathly bodies, rendered disposable in an increasingly mechanised world, sound a note of caution in an era continually transformed by new technology.

This is a survey of Kogelnik’s creative practice, considering her journey and contribution in the context of postwar society.
