Joëlle Tuerlinckx: Nothing for Eternity

Kunstmuseum Basel, St. Alban-Graben 16, 4051 Basel, Switzerland

The Kunstmuseum Basel presents the Joëlle Tuerlinckx exhibition “Nothing for Eternity“. Many of Joëlle Tuerlinckx’s works originate in the artist’s gigantic archive. In addition to her own drawings, collages, photographs, and texts, it also contains objets trouvés, newspaper photographs, and the bric-a-brac of everyday life.

Employing artistic approaches that Tuerlinckx, who was born in Brussels in 1958, describes in a dedicated «lexicon», she alters the materials, dimensions, and appearance of these objects, transforming their reality and purport. Her repertoire of techniques includes sculptural and painterly procedures such as copying, depicting, enlarging, coloring, scanning, and (re)printing as well as modes of presentation ordinarily used in museums or archives.

In her exhibitions, Tuerlinckx arranges wall-mounted and freestanding objects in polyphonic arrangements that confront objects of art with problems of philosophy such as questions concerning the essence of time or language.
