Don’t Worry I’ll Organize Your Memory – Sara Masüger

28 January - 12 March
Barbara Seiler, Limmatstr. 270, 8005 Zürich Schweiz + Google Map

The title of the exhibition Do not Worry I'll Organize Your Memory plays with a certain dualism. Although the statement may seem soothing at first, it also contains something disturbing. Looking at the sculptures of the artist Sara Masüger (* 1978, Zug, CH), the impression also changes: one is fascinated and irritated at the same time. The recognition of familiar fragments such as hands, faces and ears mixes with strange, bizarre forms, which give the sculptures a mysterious aura. Masüger…

Opening, Friday 24 February 2017 Exhibition, 25.02.–31.03.2017 The German dramatist Heiner Müller put it thus: “The universe of ideas is spent, only markets remain”, describing an unbearable emptiness. Müller’s simple formula is: “Capitalism makes us tired of life”. Coca-Cola, comic books, pop music – therein lay a feeling, or a promise, of a lighter, freer life. From a current-day perspective things look changed. The makers of the American cartoon series ‘The Simpsons’ demonstrated visionary skills 17 years ago, when they…

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…

When Piär Amrein uses and processes "waste", a new product is created that is unmistakably different from the found raw material. The end of the usefulness of an object in daily life is often the beginning of a new existence in a counterworld, in which curiosity, dream, and ironic criticism develop an aesthetic that undermines a normalized view of the original articles of use. Piär's work is the playful, dreamy and yet reflective approach to a reality that is not…
