Thomas Ruff

l.m.v.d.r.

Zwirner & Wirth and David Zwirner are pleased to present a two-part exhibition of the newest series l.m.v.d.r. by German artist Thomas Ruff.

The series l.m.v.d.r.–the initials of renowned 20th century modernist architect Ludwig Mies Van der Rohe (1886-1969)–began as a commission offered to Ruff in 1999-2000 in connection with the renovation of Haus Lange and Haus Esters in Krefeld, Germany. Having worked with architectural subject matter since the mid-1980s, Ruff was enlisted to photograph the Krefeld buildings as well as the Barcelona Pavilion and the Villa Tugendhat in Brno. Given the freedom to choose how the buildings would be rendered, Ruff was faced with the challenge of discovering a new way to capture these all-too-familiar and heavily documented monuments.
