The group exhibition brings together selected works, which stem from early periods in the careers of the gallery's artists. The gallery would like to offer a somewhat different and sometimes even surprising look at the oeuvre of each artist.
Time present and time past
Are both perhaps present in time future
And time future contained in time past.
If all time is eternally present
All time is unredeemable.
What might have been is an abstraction
Remaining a perpetual possibility
Only in a world of speculation.
What might have been and what has been
Point to one end, which is always present.
Footfalls echo in the memory
Down the passage which we did not take
Towards the door we never opened
Into the rose-garden. My words echo
Thus, in your mind.
(From: T. S. Eliot, The Four Quartets, Burnt Norton)
The group exhibition You Always Return To The Water brings together selected works, which stem from early periods in the careers of the gallery’s artists. Through the exhibition we would like to offer a somewhat different and sometimes even surprising look at the oeuvre of each artist. Included are works by Anetta Mona Chisa & Lucia Tkacova, Klodin Erb, Tatjana Gerhard, William Hunt, Constantin Luser, Klaus Lutz, Luc Mattenberger, Guillaume Pilet, and Filib Schürmann.
Is time truly linear? Or is it instead constituted by the parallel existence of multiples temporalities? Is the past not always inherent to the present and the future rooted in the here and now? What conclusions can be drawn about a current reality by looking at its beginnings, and to what extent is it possible to identify today the initial threads of tomorrow’s developments?
In parallel to these early works we will present the most recent works by a number of artists in the office and salon.
