3 exhibitions: CEMETÉRIO by Adriano Costa, THE GINA SHOW by Gina Proenza, Gina Fischli and Gina Folly, RE-FLEX by Jean Katambayi Mukendi. Curators: Samuel Leuenberger, Alice Wilke, Benedikt Wyss
CEMETÉRIO: In the tension between humor and politics, Adriano Costa (BRA) provokes a reflection on the real value of artworks by raising the question of how materials can be transformed into an art object and vice versa. Curated by Samuel Leuenberger and Benedikt Wyss.
THE GINA SHOW: The sculptures of Gina Proenza (KOL) form narrative spaces. Gina Fischli (CH) transforms banal objects into objects of desire. Gina Folly (CH) extends the medium of photography to new formats and materials. Curated by Alice Wilke.
RE-FLEX: Jean Katambayi Mukendi (DR Congo), a trained electrician, uses his knowledge of circuits in his artworks by dramatizing the flow of energy. The materials used support his vision of a futuristic, balanced global economy. Curated by Benedikt Wyss.
