Karin Suter (in the space of analogies, there are only detours)

Solo show by Karin Suter, from 3 to 20 July.

The title for Karin Suter’s exhibition derives from an essay by Inger Christensen (1935-2009), a Danish poet, novelist and essayist who was the foremost experimentalist of her generation. The central theme in her work is the distance between language and experience, reality and words. This in-between is what lies underneath the exhibitions’ literal materials and allusive title. Karin Suter’s sculptural practice explores analogies between the two-dimensional written word and the three-dimensional realm of objects. What remains is the sculptures’ physical presence, their placing and relation with the surrounding space that embeds the whole exhibition into a closed system.
