June 2022, Zurich, Switzerland

Starting from a blank canvas

The first edition of the series, Dwellings, explores the different aspects of the places we inhabit, ranging from questions around intimacy, privacy, and representation to questions around the social dynamics of congregation and productivity. The role of the home, the office or the city as “dwelling” places lay at the centre of the concept for this exhibition. Covid-19 meant that most people worked remotely and had to renegotiate their work-life balances. Offices and buildings, which used to have a busy, productive energy, suddenly became quiet, like libraries. Artists have been reflecting on these questions long before the pandemic. While dealing with the fragility of the places we inhabit, our exhibition also addresses the challenges of translating a familiar terminology from the physical realm into a digital experience. The art we exhibit and the artworks we acquire for the collection, reflect the pertinent concerns which are characteristic of our time and place. We are pleased to give you a virtual tour and an introduction to the exposed artists below.
