Soloshow: March 7 – April 26, 2019

 

From Thursday 7 March to Saturday 27 April Géopolis presents the exhibition 'Monsanto, a photographic investigation' by Mathieu Asselin.

Michael Etzensperger - at Kunsthalle Winterthur

Kunsthalle Winterthur (CH)
Soloshow: March 10 – April 28, 2019

 

The Ravestijn Gallery is proud to announce the upcoming solo show of Michael Etzensperger at Kunsthalle Winterthur in Winterthur (CH). The exhibition enthails two new series; 'Abglanz' (2019) and 'Resister' (2019).

Unlike before, Etzensperger finds his motives currently no longer in (art) historical or ethnological illustrations, but in advertisements in urban space. For the series 'Abglanz' (2019) he photographed models on billboards in Zurich's Bahnhofstrasse; however, he did so at night, with a telephoto lens and partially through window panes of stores, allowing him to accidentally light incidents, distorting reflections beyond recognition, or technology-related interference. 'Resister' (2019) comprises of three videoworks.

Opening Saturday March 9, 2019 from 17:00 onwards.
