A brilliant yellow Madonna, a set of skeleton feet, a grey giant leaning obdurately on his club, a green and boyish-looking St. Michael slaying the dragon, a pitch-black snake – these and other figures make up a curious cast of characters currently on view in MoMA’s Sculpture Garden in 2013.
Figurengruppe (Group of Figures) is a tightly arranged ensemble of nine sculptures by the artist Katharina Fritsch, first conceived in 2006–08 in painted polyester and recast in 2010–11 in durable lacquered copper and bronze for outdoor display.
The group is making its MoMA debut as part of Figure in the Garden, a seasonal outdoor installation that unites figurative works from the collection from the late 19th century to the present.
