Valentina Minnig, Gernot Wieland

25th April – 5th July 2020

Gernot Wieland, Thievery and Songs, 2016

The double exhibition brings together works by artists from two different generations. The installative works by Valentina Minnig (*1991 in Chur/CH, lives and works in Zurich/CH) use simple materials, some of which were found on the street, to realize space-filling interventions. These not only create a state of fragility, but often reflect the immediate surroundings of a place. At the same time they question signs and forms designed by humans as well as our relationship to nature. The artistic practice of Gernot Wieland (*1968 in Horn/AT, lives and works in Berlin/DE) is based on the deconstruction of narrations. His works humorously hover between the fictional and the documentary, illustrating the absurdities of everyday life, the incongruities of neuroses - both in humans and animals. Scientific and para-academic research is the foundation of these works, which are concretised in the exhibition space as diagrams, but also as lecture performances or 16mm films.
