A Layer of Silence and a Layer of Snow

Eric Andersen, Hans Bellmer, Bruno Jakob, Ylva Ogland, Daniel de Roulet, Olympia Scarry, Andro Wekua

Subfreezing temperatures, an ancient alpine hut under the snow in the middle of nowhere… This group show is dedicated to the seclusion of alpine winter. Being an art exhibition that is difficult to access, it triggers the imagination of potential visitors. In sheer isolation the show is self-sufficient––isolated, thus real.

Dogma

Metro Pictures, New York

The summer show Dogma took place during the dog days of 2012 and looked at the inextricable relationship tens of thousands of years of domestication have forged between mankind and dogs.

The origin of the term dog days can be traced back to the ancient Romans, who attributed the heat of summer to Sirius, the brightest star in the night’s sky, which they referred to as the Dog Star due to its position in the constellation Canis Major (Large Dog). Dog days were long believed to be maddening and wicked times that turned food and wine sour and pushed man to hysteria. 

Allora/Calzadilla, Nina Beier, Sebastian Black, Angela Bulloch, Olaf Breuning, Valentin Carron, Lara Favaretto, Claire Fontaine, Jack Goldstein, Richard Hamilton, Martin Kippenberger, Dustin Pittman, Dieter Roth, Jim Shaw, Andreas Slominski, Haim Steinbach, Mungo Thomson, Rosmarie Trockel, William Wegman and Christopher Wool.

Nina Beier presents Tragedy, a performance in which a live dog plays dead as it lies on a Persian rug. Tragedy, occurs at intervals throughout the duration of the exhibition.
