‘Parrot Problems accompanies British artist Helen Marten’s first institutional solo exhibition in Germany. Close to an artist book, forty pages within the catalogue are designed by Helen Marten featuring unique collages. In insightful and precise essays Diedrich Diederichsen and Johanna Burton focus on the “artist of the hour”, who through processes of manipulation, abstraction and shifting resembles recognisable elements anew; piercing the patina of familiarity covering the density and complexity of our everyday material lives. The catalogue contains many illustrations.’ (Museum Fridericianum)


Published retrospectively for the exhibition Helen Marten: Parrot Problems at the Museum Fridericianum, Kassel, 6 September – 2 November 2014.
