Artists to Watch From the 2014 Independent Art Fair
(...) "Revisiting lesser-known artists was a recurring theme at both the fairs and the Whitney Biennial this year, but Galerie Susanne Zander takes the idea into new territory with their booth, which showed four artists about whom basically nothing is known. Photographs by someone going by the name of Martina Kubelk, in particular, were striking. Of course, Kubelk's true identity remains unknown; 'Martina' is the adopted name of the anonymous man depicted in this series of photographs wearing a variety of women's clothes, mostly lingerie, which were, according to Zander, found collected in a photo album labeled "Martina Kubelk: Clothes – Lingerie." The whole booth is an intellegent gesture, considering how much interest from both artists and institutions there has been in anonymous or psuedonymous artist projects recently."
