Blending Presences – Bastiaan De Nennie

17 May - 22 July
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…

CV – Michael Riedel

19 May - 12 August
Kunsthalle Zürich, Limmatstrasse 270, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

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…

Opening: June 7, 6pm June 8 – August 27, 2017 Counter Space: Stich & Oswald are the invited guests of Museum Haus Konstruktiv. The Beton-Incubator is a hypothesis, a working model, a walk-in monument and a materialised utopia. It is formed from the question: What could be (a) space in the 21st century? What lies in between the wastelands, gaps, voids of a city and an architect’s plan that always aims for eternity? What would be an eternal interim use?…

ArteMorfosis – Kubanische Kunst in Zürich, Rämistrasse 31, Zürich, 8001 Switzerland + Google Map

26 August - 5 November
Migros Museum, Limmatstrasse 270, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Opening: Friday, 25 August 2017 In the work of Jimmie Durham (b. 1940 in Washington, Arkansas), the examination of societal and political topics, but also the issue of the representation of civilising values, historicity and societal identity, are of central importance. His installations and sculptures reflect on the status of the object between civilizing fetish and artwork, and are metaphors for the sometimes complex and problematic encounters between the human being, technology and nature, from different cultural perspectives. Durham became…

John Russell

26 August - 19 November
Kunsthalle Zürich, Limmatstrasse 270, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

Opening: Friday, August 25, 2017 John Russell restages ideas of total hybridity of gender, nature, man and beast in his films, images, books, and installations ranging from real to virtual and fictional filtered through literature, theory, religion, and art. His fictions emerge in the middle of anarchy, vacuum, dystopia, where everything is possible and our lives mere networks. Satire meets historical painting meets science fiction, vision, and excess, and before we know it we come face to face with a…
