Kiki Kogelnik: The Dance

Kiki Kogelnik, Astronaut, 1964.

6 Burlington Gardens, Mayfair, London W1S 3ET, United Kingdom

“I always want to do what I’m afraid of,” the Austrian artist Kiki Kogelnik (1935–1997) told a reporter in the mid–1970s. At that point she’d been in New York City since 1962, a bright presence among rising stars Jasper Johns, Roy Lichtenstein, Joan Mitchell, Andy Warhol, and the lot. Kogelnik was creating life-size paper cutouts of her friends, which she then used in her paintings and vinyl “hangings.” In 1969, when the lunar landing of Apollo 11 was broadcast, Kogelnik turned her attention to the cosmos, making silkscreens in which weightless bodies and vibrant geometric shapes float in space. In London, Pace Gallery presents three decades of work by Kogelnik. —Elena Clavarino
