Online since 18 February 2015

HAUSERGALLERY is delighted to announce the solo exhibition "Through Membranes" by Stefan Guggisberg in its gallery.

Ramin Haerizadeh, Rokni Haerizadeh, Hesam Rahmanian - Slice A Slanted Arc Into Dry Paper Sky

Kunsthalle Zurich

Limmatstrasse 270
8005 Zurich
Exhibition
Online since 16 February 2015

Arriving in Dubai at Al Barsha Street at the house where the three Iranian artists Ramin Haerizadeh (*1975), Rokni Haerizadeh (*1978) and Hesam Rahmanian (*1980) currently live, you might think, "Wow, this is eccentric." Yes, it is an extraordinary villa full of things, but it is also a stage, a film set and movie theatre. It is their studio and a cabinet of curiosity; it is a test site-cum-monastery, an academy-cum-pleasure dome. The house informs their art as it results from both collective and individual endeavor - and half of it just has been shipped to Kunsthalle Zurich. Read more...

Design is increasingly becoming contemporary culture's primary discipline. Perfect, computer-generated and often de-personalized surfaces determine the perception of virtually all areas of life. "Fit for Purpose" alludes to the sobering expediency of today's design, which is rooted in the legacy of modernism and the Bauhaus, and which seeks to communicate a sense of well-being and authority with an at times almost ascetic veneer.
