Arne Schmitt: Einer unter Vielen

Jacky Strenz

Opening 25 April – 20 June 2015

Schmitt’s work searches for concretized manifestations of political agenda. He walks his environment, photographing in a manner that suits documentation, places that appear symptomatic of the striking nature that is the struggle between private business and urban planning. He explores the landscape of post-war West Germany and the triumph of neoliberalism.

Brendan Lynch: Entrance Stone

Galerie Rodolphe Janssen

Opening 28 May – 17 July 2015

The multimedia installation, Entrance Stone is an exploration of the the artists relationship with the instructional painting tutorials of Bob Ross. Brendan Lynch spent several years practicing Ross’s methodical way of painting; manipulating repetition, colour and patterns to create his own original surreal dreamscapes. Lynch’s work exists in a tenuous place between completion and incompletion.

Eric Sidney: It’s Green but tastes Red

Johan Berggren Gallery

Opening 28 May – 4 July 2015

This show looks at the nature of expectation and result. Following on from his examination about the way fantasy, wealth, and idealism cooperate in the sense of an aspirational spirit in places like New York City. The exhibition features sculptures inspired by ritual clay objects found in Iraq and Syria doing back to 2400 B.C looking at the juxtaposition of scale and past ad present time.

Opening 5 June – 4 September 2015

Tim Etchell’s neon work ‘Will Be’ is the first in a series of public art displays. VITRINE Basel offers the opportunity to present work in a 24-hour public context. Etchells plays with the performative aspects of language and often focuses on the dynamic relationship between form and content. This work, as with many others draws upon the artists’ fascination with speed, clarity and vividness of language and how it can communicate narrative, image and ideas.
