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.

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…

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…

Janet Müller and Esther Gloor

15 June - 20 August
We Show Off, Usteristrasse 14, Zürich, 8001 Switzerland + Google Map

Creative process is a magical third dimension, a place between the first sparkle of an idea and an actual product of it. A blurry place of discovery, experiment, uncertainty, where mistakes are welcomed, retrials needed and mind is allowed to fly in all possible directions. It is exactly this path of creating that is so crucial in any artist‘s work but often gets overshadowed by the final result. Janet Müller and Esther Gloor see process in the result. In their…
