"Personal Plans: Twelve Current Positions in the Genre of Drawing"
2002-03-23 until 2002-05-12
The medium of drawing assumes on the one hand a special
role as the site of the prima idea. This group exhibition
presents twelve current positions in the grenre of drawing.
Works included are by: Rita Ackermann (born 1968, Budapest/New York), Anna
Ammadio (born 1963, Basel), Edgar Arceneaux (born 1972,
Los Angeles), Thomas Baumann (born 1967, Vienna),
Annelise Coste (born 1973, France/Zurich), and Andro
Wekua (born 1977, Georgia/Zurich), Russell Crotty (born
1956, Los Angeles), Karim Noureldin (born 1967, Basel),
Daniel Roth (born 1969, Karlsruhe), Yehudit Sasportas (born
1969, Tel Aviv/New York), Silke Schatz (born 1967, Cologne),
Frances Stark (born 1967, Los Angeles).
The exhibits range from small sheets, to installation-like
presentation forms, to works applied directly to the wall. The
lines lead from private life plans revealed in diary-like notes,
to drafts of worlds which, though supposedly rational, are
also subjective montages in space. The exhibition embraces
the apparently absent-minded scribble, the well-thought
through line, and moments akin to a performance or adapted
to a specific room.
Drawings are plans, and plans project, open up, invent
spaces. Is there any limit to what a plan can be- The
exhibition includes plans of architectonic, temporal,
psychological, literary and sociology.
