Program 2015

Artist

Jürg Allgaier
Sculpture, installation

Jürg Allgaier (born 1947) lives and works in Zurich. As a photographer and cinematographer, he devoted himself to turning ideas into images.
For many years now, he has focused much more on the plastic arts, working with clay and plaster. In his work, he is fascinated by the theme of the human being. The process-oriented way in which he works is chiefly concerned with capturing the essence and finding his personal stylistic idiom. His visions and his own take on reality are expressed through his art, giving rise to sculptures of striking individuality and great expressiveness.

Svetlana Hansemann
Painting, object, installation

Svetlana Hansemann (born 1975) works with her memories, which she combines and contrasts with what she sees around her today. As a result, her work features her Russian origins as much as her everyday life in Switzerland. Her paintings are collages of style and medium. She combines classic painting with street art, comic elements and drip-painting structures. Her works range between the cute and the morbid, creating a charming ambivalence.

Stefan Kreier
Object, installation

Stefan Kreier (born 1956) is an inventor of machines with absurd functions that at the same time reveal his feeling for nature and the archaic. His sculptures feature puns and subtle humour that surprise the viewer. Nabelschau (navel-gazing), for example, is a combination of helmet, monitor and endoscope that enables you to examine your own navel. Another object, a morbid-looking machine operated by pedals, blows the smell of earth into your face. Stefan Kreier takes pleasure in surprising people with his work.

Tamara Krieger
Collage, object, installation

Tamara Krieger (born 1969) has a refreshingly uncomplicated attitude towards making art. She frequents flea markets and junk shops seeking out old paintings, mainly portraits, which she uses to create collages. These are paintings of nameless people painted by unknown artists and discarded by anonymous previous owners. Tamara Krieger removes the frames and improves the works by adding colour, paper and humour, decorating the figure with a headdress to symbolise the longing for security that every individual has inside them. This results in new, exciting and sometimes humorous portraits that draw the old-fashioned gently but forcefully into the present day.

Dominik Lipp
Painting, performance, installation

Dominik Lipp (born 1974) works with the forces of nature and their haphazardness.
He has for example used gravity to hatch his abstract paintings, and in his performance art, he makes use of different forces to demonstrate our vulnerability. His works are punchy, visual and physically expressive and convey his sensitivity towards natural materials and structures. For him, it is all a game with the world and its unpredictability, which he heightens with his enthusiasm, turning it into something romantic.

Mickry3
Sculpture, installation

Mickry3 is a collective comprising Christina Pfander (born 1980), Dominique Vigne (born 1981) and Nina von Meiss (born 1978). They began working together in 1998 for an installation at the Kunstsupermarkt event. In countless bargain-basement-priced objects sealed in cellophane, such as happy pills and everything from human organs to female orgasms, they offered for sale the emotions that advertising always promises but never delivers.
They reinterpret themes, creating sculptures from them; expressing themes that preoccupy them – such as consumption, historical works of art, good and bad taste and love of animals – in sculpture form. Their work is constantly about reinterpreting ideas and expressing thoughts through solid creations. This sometimes means that it crosses the boundary into “highly polished tat” or “the profoundly morbid”. Still, the objects they create are always characterised by a sceptical humour, which is a central theme running through all of their work.

Ona Sadkowsky
Painting, installation

Ona Sadkowsky (born 1992) paints colourful characters with unselfconscious freshness. She began by drawing simple comics, usually poking fun at conventional morality in their content, but then moved on to painting her creations in acrylics. Her idiosyncratic figures, constructed in bold colours with few brush strokes, produce narratives on topical themes. Her works are brought to life by their radical reduction, combined with the cheeky expression inherent in the figures. In this way, Ona Sadkowsky manages to give free rein to her feelings and thoughts on canvas.

Amrei Wittwer
Painting, object, installation

“I’m a pessimist; even in a swimming pool, I get the feeling there could be a shark in the water! By capturing the shark in a small-format painting, I turn terror into a pleasurable experience.”

Amrei Wittwer (born 1980) is an exponent of imaginative realism. She paints modern myths using a technique that creates an old-master effect. Mostly produced as small-format, oil-on-wood panel paintings, her work hints at adventure and appears to tap into the imagination, history and fears of the viewer.
As if in a dream, her pictures break through the barriers of reality. “Come here! – Nothing has ever felt like this before”, or “Save yourself! – You are in great danger” are two sides of the same coin that represents the art of Amrei Wittwer.
