Helicopter, 2014

A series of drawings by Sabine Moritz depicting helicopters as poetic compositions. This publication presents Moritz’s latest work: a collection of drawings and paintings created between 2002 and 2013. The works are accompanied by poems by Adam Zagajewski and Friedrich Holderlin, alongside a text by Hans Ulrich Obrist.

The Helicopter series has arisen from Moritz’s interest in the shift in their symbolic meaning. They are based on images of helicopters from newspapers and television that the artist transferred into her own language. The outcome is a series of beautiful drawings and paintings that range from objective depictions of helicopters to more poetic compositions.

‘For the artist herself the helicopters have a wide variety of meanings, all of which derive from the same motif.’

Hans Ulrich Obrist
