Bound: Hans Bellmer & Unica Zürn

March 9 — May 19, 2012

Ubu Gallery presented Bound: Hans Bellmer & Unica Zürn, an exhibition of over fifty works created over two decades — spanning the German artists’ relationship — from their meeting at Bellmer’s first exhibition in Germany after World War II at the Maison de France, Berlin (curated by Rudolph Springer) in 1953 until Zürn’s suicidal leap from their apartment at the rue de la Plaine in Paris in 1970. The exhibition included anagrammatic drawings, erotic portraits, illustrated manuscripts, photographic collaborations and archival photographs of the artists at their squalid shared flat at rue Mouffetard.
