Roehrs & Boetsch, Bachstrasse 9, Zürich 8038 Schweiz + Google Map

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…

Fatebe x Oldput

10 June - 29 July
Galerie Maria Bernheim, Limmatstrasse 257, Zürich, 8005 Switzerland + Google Map

FATEBE x OLDPUT unfolds the encounter between two fictional characters central to the work Ebecho Muslimova (b. 1984 in Daghestan Russia, based in New York) and Bailey Scieskza (b. in 1989 in Royal Oak, MI, based in Detroit). 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…

Valentin Carron

10 June - 15 July
Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Limmatstrasse 270, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

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. At the…
