The current exhibition Deslocamento at Brasilea Arts Centre in Basel (Switzerland), presents paintings and an installation by the German artist Anja Ganster. The works address both the magnificent nature of Brazil and the dominant architecture of the country. In her paintings, Anja Ganster contrasts the inside and outside, and with her installation, she translates her artistic concept into the three-dimensional space.
Anja Ganster was born in Main (Germany) in 1968. She lives and works in Germany and Switzerland. Recent solo exhibitions include Wandelhalle at Kunstverein Mannheim, The Visitor at Locuslux Gallery Amsterdam, and Revisiting at Art Etage in Biel/Bienne.
Brasilea Arts Centre in Basel is run by the Brasilea Foundation. Founded in 2003, the foundation is based on the Walter Wüthrich Collection, which contains paintings by Franz Josef Widmar. It’s the objective of the Brasilea Foundation to run a cultural centre to promote and disseminate Brazilian culture, particularly in the field of visual arts.
