In her second solo show at Gallery Sobering entitled “Tomorrow was so different, so appealing.” Alexandra Hopf triggers the view into a future paradoxically envisioning the past. The show comprises paintings and objects resembling artifacts of a past avant-garde. Beyond its interest for individual memory and psychoanalysis, Alexandra Hopf’s work questions the construction of art history. By revisiting the œuvre of renowned artists of the Surrealist, Constructivist or Minimalist avant-gardes, it underlines the prevalence of male figures in its narrative and investigates the creation of myths, as well as the discourses that tend to define the identity of an artist.
