Following two wonderful exhibitions at Kunsthalle Bielefeld as well as at the Carpenter Center for the Visual Arts in Boston, which focused on the development within Oppermann‘s oeuvre to expand from two dimensional works into three dimensional installations.

Both exhibitions premiered early works and ensembles of the late 1960s and early 1970s. The title “The Picture Stands on the Window Sill“ references the poetic ambivalence of Oppermann‘s practice and points out the correlation between the single image and the ensembles, between the body and the gaze and the experience of the environment. The quality of Oppermann‘s draftmanship is the basis of Oppermann‘s reflections on normative aspects and conventional framing which develops into a multi-dimensional perspective of the later large scale ensemble work.
