Resonating Spaces is the title of the exhibition at Fondation Beyeler that brings together artworks by the artists Leonor Antunes, Silvia Bächli, Toba Khedoori, Susan Philipsz and Rachel Whiteread. Instead of making a comprehensive group show with numerous works, the exhibition presents exemplary works by a few internationally renowned contemporary artists. “The works of these artists create a specific quality of spatiality in very varied forms – acoustic, sculpted and drawn. Although different from one another, their works create spaces rather than being perceived as single objects only. They have in common that their visible appearance seems to be unobtrusive, understated, whereas the effect they have is strong and powerful. These works evoke spaces between the identifiable and the elusive. They create sites and respites, in which the capacity of remembering is elicited and images and memories come to life.” (press text, excerpt).
Resonating Spaces: Leonor Antunes, Silvia Bächli, Toba Khedoori, Susan Philipsz and Rachel Whiteread. Group exhibition at Fondation Beyeler, Riehen (Basel, Switzerland). Vernissage, October 5, 2019.
