Zurich - Exhibition

Doug Aitken

Galerie Eva Presenhuber, Maag Areal

16 May 201518 Jul 2015

The Galerie Eva Presenhuber presents an exhibition with new works by the American artist Doug Aitken.

Spanning a variety of media encompassing photography, sculpture, happenings and performances, sound, and single and multi-channel video installations, Aitken’s work explores the modern landscape and posits possibilities for new uncharted frontiers.

This exhibition features an installation of new sculptural objects that create an immersive environment where place and time dissolve, and where the individual exists adrift in an electrically charged space. Viewers are confronted with a series of signs and symbols that at first glance appear familiar but upon closer inspection reveal their foreign nature.

This show marks the premiere of Aitken’s amazing new soft sculptures. These works are made of photographic images on fabric that create sculptural forms, furniture and social spaces. Slices of the contemporary landscape are re-formed to create a tactile world of concepts and energy.

Aitken’s show at Galerie Eva Presenhuber crystalizes elements of the modern world, while re-creating their meaning and provoking unique encounters.
