The Origins of Life

Share:

Bildhalle Zurich presents ten aesthetic approaches to the sea: the group showcase ‘Ocean’ continues until September 25, 2021.

Our fascination with the sea goes back thousands of years, and spans across different cultures and civilisations. The sea is the cradle of life on our planet. The ceaseless shifting of its vast waters makes it an evocative symbol of continuity, even stability. At the same time, the ocean can stand for formlessness and chaos: in dream analysis, it signifies the collective and personal subconscious.

Bildhalle Zurich explores this primordial theme through ten artistic approaches. Works by Jeroen Hofman (NL), Amy Friend (CA), Martin Bogren (SE) and Thirza Schaap (NL) are showcased in Switzerland for the first time. Also featured: the Spanish artist duo Albarrán Cabrera (who introduce a newly developed printing technique), as well as Jeffrey Conley (US), Paul Cupido (NL), and Sandro Diener (CH).

Despite their aesthetic differences, the showcased perspectives are as old as time – imbuing viewers with a palpable feeling of standing on the shore.
