Beneath the Surfaces


The seven artists of our presentation have in common the reappropriation  and redefinition of the notion of surface with different means. Whereas Michael Müller creates a series of paintings called “In Front and Behind the Glass”, Idris Khan superimposes many layers of words on his blue canvas until they disappear, both conceptually and physically. Rebecca Horn tends to question the relationship between various surfaces in her installation “Das Blau des Himmels”.  The German artists Jonas Weichsel uses the surface of his works as a ground to question his own relationship to traditional painting, playing with the ambiguity between bi- and third dimensionality. In another way, Albrecht Schnider constantly confronts the raw canvas to brilliant colors, creating a subtle game with materialities.
