Opening: Wednesday 24 January 2018, 6.30 pm

 

Press preview: Tuesday 23 January, 9 am and 12 noon

 

 

Basel-resident artist Esther Hunziker (b. 1969) often combines seeming realities with real illusions in her work, creating quite individual, unpredictable actualities. In the context of her first major institutional solo exhibition at the Kunsthaus Baselland she returns to a subject of previous works: Science Fiction, and interweaves science with fiction in search of a new, expanded understanding of objects. Alienation is thus the central topic of the exhibition. The English word alien contains ideas of both the extra-terrestrial, what lies beyond the earth, and the foreign, yet at the same time it also relates to quite terrestrial, everyday feelings like being a stranger, being unrelated to things and inadequacy. An extensive publication from Mark Pezinger Verlag will appear in conjunction with the exhibition.
