Friedemann Heckel - LET EM TEL

In Friedemann Heckel’s hands drawing is addressed, both as a covering or surface that can be detached from its source and reinserted elsewhere, and as a subversive language whose abstract signs are both meaningful and mysterious. As with much of Heckel's work, this has its origins in his careful observations of the urban environment. His latest works question the relationship between the visual and haptic qualities of goods and images, and the political economy through which they circulate; and which is, in Heckel's works, quite literally inscribed on its surfaces.
