Andreas Eriksson

CentrePasquArt

Kunsthaus Centre d'art

2502 Biel / Bienne
Exhibition
Online since 30 June 2014

Since his youth, the Swedish artist Andreas Eriksson (b. 1975, Björsäter) has been preoccupied with painting both as medium and as subject. His atmospheric works are evocative of the landscape surrounding his studio in the Swedish countryside. At the same time, he is less interested in creating images than in using canvas and paint to project and formulate his visual and emotional experience of the natural environment. Read more...

Exhibition
Online since 30 June 2014

Previously shown in the Polish Pavilion at the Venice Biennale in 2013, the sound sculpture by Konrad Smoleński (b. 1977, Kalisz, Pl) is based primarily on the manipulation of the tolling of a bell, an ancient instrument that has for centuries set the rhythm of our earthly and "eternal" lives. Through the process of transforming the familiar tone of church bells, Smoleński also changes its meaning. Read more...

Marcel Dzama - Hollow Laughter

Kunstmuseum Thun

Thunerhof
Hofstettenstrasse 14
3602 Thun
Exhibition
Online since 9 May 2014

Marcel Dzama's work includes drawings, collages, dioramas, painting, sculptures and videos and confronts the viewer with different axes of time and image. At first glance, the imageries of Dzama seem harmless, almost innocent. But behind this facade a grotesque and sometimes cruel universe opens up: masked, uniformed and armed, dancing, loving, or agonising characters are the protagonists of his imagery. Read more...

Summer Road Trip

Rena Bransten Projects

1639 Market Street
94103 San Francisco, CA
Exhibition
Online since 4 July 2014

Summer in America means road trips, evoking notions of freedom and adventure, of spectacular landscapes and expansive skies. The work in "Summer Road Trip" at Rena Bransten Projects doesn't show that kind of road trip. Taking a cue from John Water's hitchhiking journey from Baltimore to San Francisco, chronicled in his recent book "Carsick", our summer group exhibition explores the off-putting, humorously mundane, and potentially creepy sides to hitting the road.
