Installation view, Pirelli HangarBicocca, Milan, 2017 | Torre dei Quadri Cadenti [Tower of the Falling Pictures] owes its name once again to the objects present from the top to the base of the construction: a series of wood and lead frames containing thick sheets of glass, many of which have been broken at irregular intervals. Surprisingly the frames do not display any images. Once again, Anselm Kiefer deals with the theme of missing imagery and its potentially multiple cross-references.
