For his sixth solo exhibition at Galerie Chantal Crousel, Rirkrit Tiravanija presents a new set of works, textiles and marbles.

Made from the purest tradition of weaving, Aubusson rugs displayed on walls and floors will serve as surfaces conveying the artist’s new slogans. At the crossroads between political activism and commercial marketing, the words are set out on US geographical maps referring to the ones Jasper Johns made between 1960 and 1965. Other texts overlap the United States’ flag—as Jasper Johns depicted it from 1954—in a series of unique marble works, creating both echo and tension, eternally engraved.

Rirkrit Tiravanija discussed the exhibition’s concept with the art historian Jörn Schafaff. You can download the full interview from our website.
