At this year’s Frieze New York, White Cube will feature a range of artists including Larry Bell, Theaster Gates, Mona Hatoum, Damien Hirst, Imi Knoebel, Jac Leirner, Josiah McElheny and Sarah Morris.
Sarah Morris has produced a new wallpainting titled Dr. Caligari which is part of a new series of work that is titled ‘Abu Dhabi’. Morris’ wallpainting takes its name from the influential German Expressionist silent film, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari (1920), where authority is deeply questioned and rendered graphically as twisted. Morris, through her films and paintings, constantly places the viewer in an ambivalent and complicit position in relation to power. Throughout her practice, the artist has created large-scale, expansive, site-specific wallpaintings that extend the geometry of her paintings and create a new language of place and politics.
