    About The Work

    Jutta Koether is an artist who is remembering, repeating and working within the tradition of historical painting, while at the same time deviating from and radicalising the conceivably conservative position of being a painter. For her 2013 solo exhibition “Seasons and Sacraments” at Dundee Contemporary Arts, she demonstrated her distinct style inspired by two important series of paintings by the 17th century French artist Nicolas Poussin (1594-1665) via a series of large scale paintings. The Double Session is an etching from two drawings on tracing paper by the artist, based on a photograph of a tableau vivant of Jacques Derrida recreating Poussin’s Massacre of the Innocents (c.1630). The number seven is embossed into the ceiling. The appearance of the four and the seven reiterate the idea of the Seasons and the Sacraments.
