These new Gregor Hildebrandt’s paintings are part of his most recent series of colorful audiotape works. Made out of magnetic tape and leader tape, the short colored plastic film placed at the beginning and the end of the magnetic audiotapes, the paintings pursue the artist recent fascination for ornamental elements collected from his everyday life. Replicating and creating variations after the motif of a bathroom carpet, the paintings recalls the artist’s colorfield series in homage to Piet Mondrian as well as the series of entangled geometrical grids he created in 2019 after the motifs of his father’s hand towels. As often in his work, Hildebrandt blurs here the limits of the so-called low and high culture to only dig further into his interest for ornemental constructions and repetition. He appropriates visual elements from his daily routine by translating (transposing) them with audiotape into his own pictural language and connects them to songs from his own memorial repertory. Recorded with “Wie wir beiden nebeneinander auf dem Teppichboden sitzen”, the audiotape of these new paintings remain silent but surely carries the fragments of narrative and poetry (poesy) of Tocotronic’s piece of music.
