SELECTED GROUP EXHIBITIONS AND PROJECTS



KUNSTMUSEUM THUN

Not my Circus, not my Monkeys
16 September - 03 December 2023



Regarde et je regarde aussi, 2001
Mixed media, 37 x 29 x 27 cm
Privat collection Basel

The thematic exhibition at the Kunstmuseum Thun assembles works by contemporary artists who draw on circus motifs.
In evoking its formal vocabulary and emotionality, they demonstrate how the circus with its unique repertoire offers a model
for questioning our own present-day social conditions, a way to lay bare cultural power structures and marginalization as
well as political and historical filters.

Groupshow with:
Kathryn Andrews, Miriam Bäckström, Istvan Balogh, Beni Bischof, Barbara Breitenfellner, Mona Boschàr, Michael
Dannenmann, Latifa Echakhch, Nicola Hicks, Zilla Leutenegger, Taus Makhacheva, Dieter Meier, Yves Netzhammer,
Tal R, Augustin Rebetez & Martin Zimmermann, Boris Rebetez, Ugo Rondinone, Niklaus Rüegg, Francisco Sierra,
Norbert Tadeusz, William Wegmann

Co-curated by Helen Hirsch and Katrin Sperry

Rethink destinations
24 June - 19 Octobre 2023



Trans Europe Express, 2023
Powder coated steel, 260 x 120 x 345 cm

Boris Rebetez's new sculpture Trans Europe Express, created especially for the open-air exhibition along the legendary
Pontresina - Cavaglia railway line, refers on the one hand to the legendary Trans Europ Express train that ran from the
south to the north of Europe from 1957 to 1995 and on the other hand to the avant-garde album Trans Europe Express
recorded by the electronic music band Kraftwerk in 1976.
The sculpture is intended to be a metaphorical evocation of mechanical movement while at the same time acting as
street furniture by being used as a public bench. in contrast to classical self-centred sculpture, this sculpture offers a
point of view and directs the gaze towards the outside environment.

Unrealized proposal for the production of honey on the roof of the building.


The honey bee — we know about its important role as a useful insect and pollinator, but equally as a biological indicator
of environmental change. The disproportionally significant part it plays in ecosystems is becoming better known, not least
because it is under threat. On the other hand, neurobiologists study these insects in order to understand how communication
functions between nerve cells. But what part do they play in art?

Anticipation XXXII (Shore), 2017
Ink on paper, 55 x 75 cm
Private collection Basel

The ink drawings entitled "Anticipations" by Boris Rebetez are graphic interpretations of the artist's personal
photographic archive. This series, which should eventually count 100 original drawings in the future, is an
attempt to fictionalize the "photographic reality" through an analogous medium in order to open up a new
common mental space for the viewer.

Emergences
1 juin – 5 octobre 2014, Parc Szilassy Bex



AIR & WATER, 2014
Brick, mortar / 150 x 110 x 170 cm

The sculpture AiIR&WATER is inspired in part by the industrial architecture of the late 19th century, and more
specifically by the Arts and Crafts movement that emerged in England at that time. A fundamental architectural
building block, or mathematical sum, AIR & WATER is also, in contrast, made up of words that resonate directly
with the context of the park and the surrounding nature. The designated elements, 'air' and 'water', inscribe the
work in a poetic dimension where the formal and graphic signs, letters and words, convey the idea of formless-
ness and fluidity. The word AIR remains suspended, while WATER disappears into the ground, suggesting a
complementary movement, close to natural physical phenomena.

L‘année des treize mois (Octobre), 2013
Watercolour on paper / each 156 x 114 cm (serie of 13)




Untitled (photo collage), 2001
Photo collage / 12 x 16 cm


The exhibition brings together works by artists who all share an interest in landscapes, spaces and environments.
It takes its title from the essay of the same name by Lucius Burckhardt, the Basel sociologist, planning theorist
and architect, who explores the question of what landscape is – namely a construction. Burckhardt suggests that
landscape exists not as a phenomenon of the environment, but arises in the imagination of the person looking at it.
This way of looking is governed by a process of selection: only by means of this selection process – via exclusion,
filtering and re-combination – does the picture of a landscape take shape. As a way of seeing, subjective perception
also enables movement and positioning in the landscape to become part of the creative process.
The artists at Kunsthalle Basel take account of this and direct their view at subsidiary motifs and everyday vistas, at
architecture that determines our surroundings, and likewise at natural features and at experienced, appropriated
and interiorized space. The results are personal topographies and narratives about places that are familiar to us all,
and all of which - astonishingly - are beautiful. For that is Lucius Burckhardt’s conclusion: it is impossible to
generate an ugly image of landscape.

Group show with:
Hans-Rudolf Fitze, Gina Folly, Jonas Hänggi, David Heitz, Rut Himmelsbach, Jan Hostettler,
Cécile Hummel, Georgine Ingold, Werner von Mutzenbecher, Raoul Müller, Boris Rebetez and works
from the collection of Basler Kunstverein.

À partir de collages photographiques, Boris Rebetez recompose des paysages, comme autant d’assemblages
d’images provenant d’horizons et de sources différents. Karim Noureldin présente quant à lui deux sculptures
que l’on peut aussi appréhender comme des maquettes. Elles ont été fabriquées de mémoire. L’une représente
un aéroport existant et l’autre le village natal de l’artiste.

Untitled (photo collage), 1998
Color print / 80 x 120 cm

Boris Rebetez' photographs are based on a very simple collage technique. He takes pictures of landscapes from
various magazines, cuts them up, mounts them, photographs and finally enlarges them. This results in a sampling
of impressions suggesting a plausible new reality. Foreground and background, lighting, shadows and objects are
only apparently flowing, until one recognizes the few brutal but virtuosic cuts in the picture. The artist works with
small and precise gestures. The individual landscapes retain their "autonomy", because they are not interlocked,
but rather layered consecutively and horizontally. A logical perspectival sequence is undermined in this way. A post
in the foreground of a picture becomes, in contrast with a meadow landscape, monumentalized, or a street is
miniaturized directly adjacent to a rooftop landscape. Since the autonomous plateaus are next to one another in an
optically harmonious co-existence, the sum of the fragments is read as a unit. This reveals a process of optical
feedback, in that the different interpretations of the part and the whole, the integral part and the separable whole,
can no longer be distinguished.
