Four Artists, four Oeuvres, one Topos: Aljoscha, Tanja Boukal, Franz Gertsch, Etienne Kraehenbuehl
Exhibition April 22 – November 19, 2018
WhiteSpaceBlackBox is proud to host four unique artists. Their interfering Oeuvres will indulge us with the power of beauty and the unseen of CompleXellence.
Aljoscha (UA/D): Never seen objects under the aesthetics of future organic life, based on bioism and biofuturism. Each of his works is regarded as a living being, aiming to spread new and endless forms of life throughout the universe.
Tanja Boukal (A): Meticulously working in threedimensional textile techniques, she turns our gaze on the human tragedy of migration. Her floriographic works, expressing messages in a kind of cryptological communication, will be shown a first time.
Franz Gertsch (CH): One of the internationally most significant contemporary Swiss artists, is present with six woodcuts from his famous grass-series, handprinted on Kumohadamashi Japan Paper (in collaboration with Museum Franz Gertsch).
Etienne Kraehenbuehl (CH): He installs huge works in corroded steel towards the lake, dancing with the slightest touch of nature or human in the wind. Besides his very recent prints, evolving in a daily routine from his plastic garbage, will show in mindfucking beauty the grace of the overseen.
