The Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen has been committed to contemporary art since 1985 by providing new stimuli as a lively platform and a place for experiments and by contributing to the networking of the Swiss art scene. At the centre are questions about the current production of the younger artist generation and socially relevant themes. At the LISTE Art Fair 2014 the Kunst Halle is showing an offshoot from the two artists exhibiting in St. Gallen at the same time and is thus giving a direct insight into its program: the American artist Carter Mull is presenting a floor work and the Swiss artist Tobias Kaspar is showing his new film Black Noire (2014), produced by the Kunst Halle.
The strict codes of the fashion and consumer world and their communication through images are central themes of the two exhibitions «The Air on the Way to the Oyster» by Tobias Kaspar (*1984 in Basel, lives in Rome) and «The Princess is Caged in the ©» by Carter Mull (*1977 in Atlanta, lives in Los Angeles) showing at Kunst Halle Sankt Gallen from 26 April until 13 July 2014. The artists examine constructions of identity from different positions. Their images, films and installations enter a dialogue both spatially and in terms of content. With rearranged symbols from fashion and pop culture they reveal social mechanisms and create their own pictorial worlds. The juxtaposition of their different strategies shows that in a reality flooded with images and goods the dividing lines between art and consumption and individuality and community are permeable.
