This is a remastered and re-edited version of VernissageTV’s original documentation of the opening of the exhibition Andrea Zittel at Schaulager in Basel as part of VernissageTV’s Classics series. The video provides a walkthrough of Andrea Zittel’s exhibition at Schaulager in 2008. The works on display in this show span 16 years. “One of my favorite things about this exhibition is that I think it reveils much of the interconnectedness between the various bodies of work and the two-dimensional pieces which aren’t shown as often as my sculptures provide insight into the thinking process behind them.” (Andrea Zittel).
Andrea Zittel was born in Escondido, California, in 1965. In New York in 1991, Andrea Zittel founded her A-Z enterprise, an art project that has provided the framework within which she has conducted her research and designed her works ever since. In 2000, Zittel purchased an abandoned home in the California high desert. She called it A-Z West and made it her new site for experiment. Since then she has been living there and in Los Angeles.
