Anton Henning: SoupNovember 30, 1995–January 14, 1996
This exhibition marks White Columns’ ongoing commitment to showing under known mid–career international artists. Anton Henning is based in Berlin and is shown frequently throughout Europe.
• Anton Henning’s work reflects the discourse of desire, distance, taboo and elaborate hedonism. The motive, objectivity, circumstance and context force the viewer to trace the levels of meaning and find a realistic/surrealistic structure of daily needs and expression; ear, drink, sex and shit. Anton Henning is a cook of excellent soups with all kinds of ingredients.”
