Modern Beach Design


In der Ausstellung "Modern Beach Design" bedient sich Robert Estermann (*1970 in Sursee, lebt und arbeitet in Zürich) souverän der unterschiedlichsten Medien: Seine titelgebenden Arbeiten sind Hybride zwischen Fotografie, Zeichnung, Collage und Installation. Sie reflektieren Stereotype und bekannte künstlerische Verfahren - und gehen doch weit über diese hinaus. In ihrer minimalistischen, reduzierten Erscheinung, in der Vermeidung künstlicher Überhöhung des Objekts und in ihrem poetischen Anspielungsreichtum stehen sie geradezu exemplarisch für Robert Estermanns Schaffen. Wortwörtlich im Zentrum der Schau steht ein Projekt, das eben erst während eines Stipendienaufenthaltes im südkoreanischen Busan seinen Anfang gefunden hat und gleichsam als postalische Botschaft unseren Ausstellungsraum erreichen wird. Obschon Resultat einer seit über einem Jahrzehnt andauernden intensiven Auseinandersetzung mit einem fremden Kulturkreis, beschwören die neuen Arbeiten doch nie einen Exotismus. Vielmehr werfen auch sie, ohne je explizit oder plakativ-eindeutig zu wirken, generelle, fundamentale Fragen der Identität, der gesellschaftlichen Normen und der sozialen Interaktion auf.

Die Ausstellung bei Hilfikerfoto wird begleitet von der Publikation "Modern Beach Design", ediert vom Verlag Caustic Window in Seoul.

It's Nice to Be Nice, Try It: Gregory S. Maass & Nayoungim





Title:It's Nice to Be Nice, Try It: Gregory S. Maass & Nayoungim
Description:This catalogue features works by artist duo Gregory S. Maass & Nayoungim from 2007-2008. Texts by Sytze Steenstra and Jonathan Lahey Dronsfield are included.

'The installations and drawings by Gregory Maass and Nayoungim documented in this book consist mostly of widening gaps between the constituent parts. They form a seismic zone, riddled with ravines and fissures, eminently unstable cityscapes of found objects, catchy remarks, dumb puns, cartoons, gleefully deliberate ugliness, blunt parody. To the untrained eye, there is very little to keep the whole shebang from falling in over your head, leaving rubbish. But the installations give the appearance of knowing that you've seen as many bad television shows as they have, and as many commercials, and as many films, and you know that they know, and they know that you know that they know. And they appear to know, and secretly build on a good deal of, say, Neo-Dada and Fluxus and Pop Art, and they have zapped from Concept to Minimal and back, and all that has taught them to keep their formlessness apart from their meaninglessness, making sure that the chasm between the dumb and the ugly is widening, that the real is only suggested, and that your curiosity is getting involved.' - Sytze Steenstra
