The Consciousness of Stones
NOVEMBER 2023 - MARCH 2024

Galleria Lorcan O’Neill presents an exhibition of seven new monumental paintings of islands by the German artist Anselm Kiefer. Symbolizing isolation, exploration, and the human desire for connection, the theme of islands has long fascinated Kiefer. The artist examines these concepts by drawing inspiration from various mythologies, literature, philosophy, and his own personal experiences. 

Like a Bird, Not a Feather
JUNE 2016 - SEPTEMBER 2016
The title of this exhibition, a phrase by Paul Valery which is quoted by Italo Calvino in the notes of his Norton Lecture on “lightness”, expresses the idea that to fly, to leave the bounds of gravity, to reach higher and to head for the skies is to expend effort, concentration, and volition.
Die Ordnung Der Engel

Anselm Kiefer's second solo show includes in the main gallery, new and tall paintings representing the dynamism of a primordial planetary surface as well as the cycle of life; and a site-specific sculpture installed in the gallery's annex space: a celestial orb rests on the shoulders of the life-size figure, a new character in his group of "Women of Antiquity".
Dein und mein Alter und das Alter der Welt

Through an analogy between the history of mankind and the millennial history of Earth, this show investigates the fundamental, vital aspects of Kiefer’s work via successive geological eras.
