Sabine Moritz: Dawn
Sabine Moritz’s work explores themes of memory, belonging and repetition, often focusing on her own experience growing up East Germany under the Soviet regime. This exhibition, held at Galerie Marian Goodman, Paris, presented a selection of Moritz’s oil paintings alongside her first abstract works, and a series of works on paper. Within many of these, she revisits the same scene or composition, reflecting on subtle changes in composition, atmosphere and lighting.
To accompany the exhibition, we designed a publication in two parts. The first presents works from the artist’s Storm series of paintings, with a poem by Etel Adnan; the second displays a broader range of works from the exhibition, and is accompanied by a conversation between the artist, Etel Adnan and Hans Ulrich Obrist. A landscape format was chosen for the publication, with the two parts bound in to the same flush-cut case. The colour of the cover is drawn from the palette used within many of Moritz’s works, with the title set in bespoke serif type.
