Among the works exhibited at Galerie Yvon Lambert are a number that were conceived in 1969, when the artist was only 24 years old. Today it is indeed important to return to these books which recall some of Kiefer’s daring interventions. Seeing these strange books, made some forty years ago, those who thought they knew Anslem Kiefer from huge canvases loaded with paint, or lead that irrigates the canvas like grey blood, have to admit that this blood is not to be called ‘History’ or ‘the destiny of Germany’, but ‘Tragedy’.
