James Hyde

James Hyde Work from Inhere. “James Hyde’s paintings and objects are not about the act of seeing or about the world, but how they interact. Each painting is a membrane of the encounter between self and world. Its form can be understood as a perspective on to the world as much as a demonstration of […]

Zimoun

Zimoun Work from his oeuvre “Using simple and functional components, Zimoun builds architecturally-minded platforms of sound. Exploring mechanical rhythm and flow in prepared systems, his installations incorporate commonplace industrial objects. In an obsessive display of curiously collected material, these works articulate a tension between the orderly patterns of Modernism and the chaotic forces of life. Carrying […]

Nicole Hametner

Nicole Hametner Work from Schwarzes Licht (Black Light). “On the white walls are hung at first sight only visible large white sheets of paper, replace the ceiling black light tubes, the conventional fluorescent lights. While the bright sunlight mixed with the artificial, is of the screen printing is barely visible. Only at dusk, when the […]

Charles Negre

Charles Negre Work from Models. “…The idea of Terra Incognita and scientific exploration is at the heart of these projects.It is a constant search consisting in attempting to give depth and scale to landscape-objects made exclusively in studio. How by artificial reproduction might one get closer to nature’s perfection? Every photograph begins as an object, […]

Florent Meng

Florent Meng Work from Wanderer’s Sculptures. “The Sculptures of the Walker represent a photographic suite presented as digital prints and published in a set of 12 booklets. The images are meant as short sequences circling around their subjects. They indeed propose several viewpoints of undefined places and objects occupying a position of transitional disuse. These […]

Karin Lehmann

Karin Lehmann Work from lunar farside goes offspaces. “In the beginning was an ordinary A4 sheet. It was, no one knows more and why, to a spitzkegligen form when folded. As a small umbrella-shaped object is moved a long time through my studio, always new relationships to other objects braiding. One day I built this […]

Gregory Polony

Gregory Polony Work from his oeuvre (mostly Debut, his ongoing show at Herrmann Germann in Zürich) “The exhibition focuses on how we approach and interpret sculpture. Extending across various media, and partly site-specific, Gregory Polony’s work draws on a reduced palette of materials, including found objects, cement, wooden boards, and lashing belts. His conceptual approach […]

Pamela Rosenkranz

Pamela Rosenkranz Work from her oeuvre. “Whilst basically Rosenkranz’s œuvre walks a tight conceptual line, the artist’s practice features a lightness of touch, that belies the use of irony, play and humor in its making. In general, Rosenkranz’s works speak of a mercurial élan, an “inform” physicality and a pervasive sense of “mise en scene”. […]

Gaël Odilon Paccard

Gaël Odilon Paccard Work from Bits and Pieces. Bits and pieces is simultaneously familiar and foreign. This dichotomy, however, is not necessarily what draws me to the work. The images patently acknowledge the image as an effect of process. While one could argue that the image of image inherently addresses the function of the photograph, what is often missing is the […]

Phillip Schaerer

Phillip Schaerer Work from Bildbauten. Also see Raummodelle, they are fantastic as well. “The series of images with the title „Bildbauten“ deals with the effect and the claim to credibility of images of architecture that appear to be photographs. It further questions the medium “photograph” as a documentary piece of evidence depicting reality. Frontal views […]
