For her installation “Even Cacti Can’t Take the Heat”, Claudia Comte used Modern Gothic Poster. The installation is part of the exhibition The Liberation of Form. Barbara Hepworth – A Master of Abstraction in the Mirror of Modernism, held at the Lehmbruck Museum, Duisburg from 2 April to 20 August, 2023.
The exhibition opens up new perspectives on Barbara Hepworth’s work and traces the connections to her contemporaries and her influence up to the present day. Works by artists such as Claudia Comte, Tacita Dean, Julian Charrière, Nevin Aladağ, Nezaket Ekici, and Laurenz Theinert update Hepworth’s ideas and reinterpret her formal and aesthetic qualities.
