Exhibition at Art Forum Baloise Park

October 31, 2022
Art Forum Baloise Park opens its doors next week with an group exhibition by Josiane Imhasly.
Flurina Badel & Jérémie Sarbach, Lost Waters and Found Stairs, 2022, Videostill


Curated by Josiane Imhasly

11 November 2022 to 25 May 2023

Opening: Thursday, 10 November, 5 – 9 p.m.

The exhibition brings together works by nine Swiss and international artists who transform rivers – such as the Lawa in French Guiana, the Rhone, the Rhine, the Clozza in the Lower Engadine, and the Xingu in Brazil – into protagonists. Meaning “the state of being a river”, the term Riverhood represents the unique ways different communities relate to rivers, ranging from respectful coexistence to control and dominance. The exhibition envisions local river landscapes and river systems as an interconnected, global network of knowledge resources. In doing so, thought-provoking impulses for harmonious coexistence between rivers and human beings are provided.

With works by Mathieu Kleyebe Abonnenc, Yvan Alvarez, Flurina Badel & Jérémie Sarbach, Carolina Caycedo, Magali Dougoud, Dunja Herzog, Basia Irland, Marie Velardi, Dadi Wirz.
