For her first institutional solo exhibition in Europe, Kaari Upson (born in 1972) presents a new body of wood and latex sculptures. The show at Kunsthalle Basel ist titled “Go Back the Way You Came” and continues her ongoing exploration of both the figure of the mother and the uncanny double. The US-American artist casts, cuts down, or replicates natural and architectural elements that she grew up with, fusing home and mother, body and object, desire and trauma. This video provides you with impressions of the opening reception of the exhibition.
Kaari Upson: Go Back the Way You Came. Kunsthalle Basel, Vernissage, August 29. 2019.
