Franz West: Echolalia at David Zwirner, NYC (Video)

David Zwirner: Echolalia (2010) by Franz West, on view through April 15, 2023, at the gallery’s 533 West 19th Street space in New York.

Executed in 2010, only a few years before the artist’s death, Echolalia consists of seven colorful, larger-than-life sculptures that seem to stand slightly off-balance, interspersed with three cushioned divans. The work’s title—which refers to the repetition of words and sounds made by young children when learning to talk—was inspired by the artist’s son, who at the time of its creation was three years old and brought his own, distinct perspective to his father’s oversized works.
