Gió Marconi presents ANDRÉ BUTZER

September 23 – December 20, 2022

Opening: Thursday, September 22, 2022


National and international are
Mickey and Donald, the two
Lambchicks and real friends, as
grafted fully with niiice ideas!
What do they want? Here we now
’ve gotta
world ball
full of water and flesh hauled in.


Happiness is always
and our words come from
the ears of God and
turn into our language:
and are our dialect!

Rangsdorf lake
Totality America
… be happy and liveth
as always toward death.

(we bring N-light)
where we have settled
there’s light

André Butzer


transl. Alexander Serner

Gió Marconi is happy to present André Butzer’s sixth solo exhibition with the gallery, Xylon – Acquarelli, pitture, libri, and poesie 2008 / 2021.
The exhibition emphasizes a crucial aspect of the artist’s practice: the ongoing production of works on paper by Butzer alongside his paintings.
A collection of 11 large-scale, black-and-white figurative drawings from 2008 will be on display in the gallery; they will be on exhibition for the first time and will be shown in conversation with more current figurative and abstract works on paper.

A collection of André Butzer’s poetry from 1999 to 2021 will be published in conjunction with the show André Butzer – Alcune poesie.

At the TASCHEN store in Via Meravigli 17, 20123 Milan, a book-signing for the artist’s recently released André Butzer monograph will take place on September 21 from 6 pm to 8 pm.
