This group exhibition (Monira Al Qadiri, Joan Jonas, Sigalit Landau, Maya Schweizer, Hannah Weinberger) focuses on large-scale installations, particularly video works that directly address the themes of nature, climate change, sound, memory, and participation. Through an approach that is both poetic and immersive, they enable the viewer to have a unique experience and ultimately gain a deeper understanding of these issues. Many of the works are concerned with questions of heedfulness towards natural spaces, history, time, identity, memory, in connection with sound works and performative practices. Both urban and natural spaces—such as oceans, lakes, and deserts—are experienced as interfaces of individual and collective behaviors. They serve as sources for cinematic, textual, and performative observation. In their perception of these familiar or even inaccessible and hidden places and spaces, the featured artists uncover social and political realities as well as inscribed histories and narratives, creating highly striking images and sound fields. This will be the first time that these works will be shown in Switzerland. The exhibition is accompanied by a series of events called Soundfields.
