Roman Signer: Skulptur / Fotografie

Roman Signer, performance all'Istituto Svizzero di Roma, 1986

Istituto Svizzero is pleased to present “Skulptur/ Fotografie”, a solo presentation by artist Roman Signer.

Roman Signer is counted amongst the most renowned contemporary Swiss artists with an extremely versatile body of work encompassing various disciplines such as sculpture, drawing, happening, installation-work, photography, and video.

Signer is best known for his ephemeral time sculptures, with their ties to process, transformation and movement, and which have contributed to the redefinition of the very concept of sculpture since the mid-seventies. His creative process often reveals, by means of a structured suspension in time, what is scarcely, or very seldom, visible. His sculptural works exist as experimental movements where the process is more important than the visual appearance, collections of passing moments where slight transformations of shape and matter occur. The artist’s sculpture/actions are free to unfold their dynamism and what [...]

Nilbar Güres: colony

Schwules Museum*, 09.03.–15.04.2018

Nilbar Güres: colony

colony ist eine Gruppenausstellung des in Ankara ansässigen LSBTIQ*-Vereins Kaos GL, die zeitgenössische künstlerische Positionen zusammenbringt, welche sich mit gesellschaftlichen Normen von Binarität und Dichotomien auseinandersetzen und (darauf aufbauend) eine queere Utopie postulieren. Die Ausstellung war vom 23. Dezember 2017 bis 03. Februar 2018 trotz schwerer politischer Repressalien in der Türkei zu sehen.

Das Projekt musste kurz vor der Eröffnung in Istanbul neu konzeptioniert werden, weil das Gouverneursamt von Ankara am 15. November 2017 ein generelles Verbot von allen LSBTIQ*-bezogenen Veranstaltungen und öffentlichen Aktivitäten in der Hauptstadt Ankara erwirkt hatte, was auch die Aktivitäten von Kaos GL betritt. Aus diesem Grunde sah sich Kaos GL gezwungen, als in Ankara ansässige Organisator_in jegliche institutionelle Unterstützung für das Projekt zurückziehen. Damit wollten sie, da es [...]

Roman Ondak: Objects in the Mirror

Base / Progetti per l’arte, 14.03.–21.05.2018

Roman Ondak: Objects in the Mirror

Objects in the Mirror is the project conceived by Roman Ondak for the architectural container of Base and for the public who frequents that context. On this occasion, his displacement and regenerative approach focuses on the presence of the glass door and the window of the place. These two elements strongly characterize the space, making it visually accessible to the observer from outside and inside, and vice versa, leaving it at a safe distance beyond the glass at the same time. The title, as specified by the artist himself, derives from “Objects in the Mirror Are Closer Than They Appear”. This is the phrase that in some countries must, by law, be engraved on the rear-view mirrors of cars. The safety warning urges the driver to pay attention to the fact that such a convex mirror makes the objects reflected in it look smaller. The artist, creates a surreal and concrete, immaterial and engaging situation, focused on the re-formulation of the interactive [...]
