Gallery Roehrs & Boetsch is pleased to present Bastiaan de Nennie's first solo exhibition 'Blending Presences'. Bastiaan’s works can be considered as a new tradition of 'phygital' (physical + digital = phygital) sculptural art, dealing with the physical and digital architecture of our surroundings. He departs from a pre-digital reality: the world of things we have, mostly, experienced through their forms, colours, fragrances and textures. Once selected, these objects are 3D-scanned, the scans are dissected, and the components are used…

Opening: Friday, May 19, 2017 German Artist Michael Riedel (*1972) has created a body of work that is readily misunderstood and can’t easily be compared with any other. Similar to a Doubling Charm, by which objects replicate by the slightest touch, starting a chain-reaction of reentries, Riedel’s artworks attest to an ongoing process of replication within the art system. His exhibition CV at Kunsthalle Zürich centers around the Curriculum Vitae or résumé, this obsessively stylized form of human measurement for…

Interhemispheric 27.5-25.6.2017 Paolo Chiasera Martina Mächler Eleonora Meier Interhemispheric refers to the region of the brain located in between the two hemispheres, the “room” which separates the two halves of the brain. That gap functions as a space of conjunction and separation at the same time, its spatial identity is given by the areas it brings together, or breaks apart, conferring to it a certain degree of autonomy.

El Orden Del Desierto – Laura Carralero Morales

8 June - 23 June
BALTSprojects, Bernerstrasse Nord 180, 8064 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

In her work Laura Carralero (1991, Havana) systematically deals with the reminiscence of spaces. The basis of her work is the precise observation of her environment and its subsequent reduction to fundamental spatial experiences. Throughout this process, the impressions Carralero captures transform into fragmentary spaces in which fiction and reality, the well-known and the unknown coexist. Laura Carralero studied art at the Instituto Superior de Artes (ISA), Havana. Since 2010 her works has been presented in various solo and group…

Through the satirical mise en scène of FATEBE, a young woman both plump and alarmingly clumsy, in bizarre situations, Ebecho Muslimova deconstructs the codes of the representation of female bodies. Systematically naked and playing with her flesh rather inventively, FATEBE provokes a…

With his sculptures and collages, Valentin Carron imitates traditional handicrafts, lesser known art-works (some of which were meant for the public space), stereotypical forms of modern art, and certain forms of the everyday. By appropriating these objects, he questions originality, authenticity, and identity in the globalized world. His reformulations of traditional handicraft, mainly from his Swiss home, show a characteristic touch of irony: Carron recreates these incarnations of a romantic, pastoral Switzerland with cheap industrial materials like polystyrene.
