For her first major presentation, the Basel-based artist Laura Mietrup (1987, Rheinfelden, CH) is realizing a condensed parcours through the annex of Kunsthaus Baselland. A painting that takes up the entire wall surface combines sculpture and architecture in a haunting and at the same time idiosyncratic way. Spatial bodies reminiscent of machines, furniture or even fragments combine with the narrative of the high-contrast wall painting, which focuses on dark colour values. Always striving for a holistic spatial experience, Mietrup allows visitors to fully immerse themselves in her work Traverse.
Solo Position is a biennial competition format aimed at artists from the region, giving them their first institutional solo exhibition. On the initiative of kulturelles.bl, the competition was publicly announced for the seventh time in spring 2021. Members of the jury were the Art Commission of the Canton of Basel-Landschaft and the management of Kunsthaus Baselland.
