    Bruxelles, Almine Rech, "Gregor Hildebrandt, Und vor der Tür stehen weiße Pferde", 14 janvier-12 février 2010
    « 'What you see is what you see’, declared Franck Stella as late as the 1960s. With Gregor Hildebrandt, the opposite is the case. Everything we see hides something. The often minimalist outfit of his works does not stand for a rigorous self-referentiality ; rather, a broad associative potential unfolds, devised intentionally by the artist. What we see is again and again surfaces of cassette tapes and vinyl records which the artist glues onto canvas or shapes into sculptural objects. The titles of the works usually refer to what could be heard on the tapes or records if they could still be used as sound carriers. But today tapes and records have been largely replaced as sound carriers by newer technologies, which has turned them almost automatically into the carrier of nostalgic memories. That Hildebrandt only presents the carrier of the sounds, but not the sounds themselves, is a kind of a mirror of a reminiscence which is stored in memory but can no longer be physically realized. » Ludwig Seyfarth
