The quick brown fox jumps over the lazy dog

David Zwirner is pleased to present an exhibition of new work by Michael Riedel, on view at the gallery's 533 West 19th Street space. This will be the artist's third solo show at the gallery.

Riedel uses text as his source material and employs a wide range of media and formats to examine its various manifestations. For an early lecture delivered in 1997, he wrote his name on a paper bag and concluded the talk by putting it over his head while saying, "I am Michael Riedel." As if offering a literal illustration of how writing is an external act, the artist elaborated on the significance of this action in his talk at The Kitchen, New York, in May last year: "in this case I am overwriting myself. In other words, I’m not just the artist making art but also the artist watching himself making art and perceiving this process as art. This also shifts the position of the viewer, who watches the artist watching himself making art."
