Christo Paffgen

2003

acrylic on canvas

185 x 145 cm
Sophie von Hellerman is a young German artist working in London. The title of the painting Christo Paffgen is the real name of Warhol protégé, Velvet Underground vocalist, and unrepentant lifelong heroin addict Nico. The 1960s icon was infamous for her sexual endeavours and drug abuse. Rather than capture Nico in all her excess von Hellermann chooses to depict her before she lost her beauty, interest in life, and eventually her death in relative obscurity, and mystery, in Ibiza in 1988.

Sophie Von Hellermann - A Perfect Spy
Sophie Von Hellermann took the title “A Perfect Spy” from a novel by John Le Carre, which serves as the starting point and leitmotiv of this exhibition presented by the artist at Vacío 9. Sophie von Hellermann is, first and foremost, a storyteller. It soon becomes obvious that she does not use literary techniques in her narratives.

Sophie Von Hellermann – On the Ground at Vilma Gold
On the Ground takes the form of contemporary iconostases based on the events leading up to the death of the cult figure Nico. In a series of part-fictional and part-factual scenes Nico isdepicted alongside Andy Warhol, members of the Factory scene and finally her son Ari. Hellermann's paintings are loosely based on an outline of the final period in Nico's life where she fled Manchester for Ibiza.
