In this video, we attend the opening reception of Swiss artist Bianca Pedrina’s solo exhibition at Kunsthaus Baselland (Muttenz, Switzerland). In her photographic work Bianca Pedrina (b.1985, lives and works in Vienna) consistently engages with the process of visual perception. She frequently traces back forms and ideas of architecture and its history. The question of the relationship between the viewer and their immediate surroundings is central to her work, as well as photography’s claim to truth in general. In her multifaceted work, in which she uses differing media such as photography, film, or sculpture and installation, Bianca Pedrina questions how a work can make the qualities of the medium of photography its subject, and with that medium the connection between image and reality. Following a recent exhibition of her work viewed by a wide audience at the Amerika-Haus (C/O Berlin), the exhibition at the Kunsthaus Baselland is Bianca Pedrina’s largest institutional solo exhibition to date.
