Neither the either nor the or are places to be

Exhibition at Palazzina

Until 24 May
Palazzina, Schweizergasse 2, Basel

The conjunction „either…or“ inscribes a search for decisiveness, suggesting two possibilities, neither of which – as the melancholic tone of the title emphasizes – can be considered as permanent states. It contains an evasive, not final or definitive moment, which reminds one of a way of working of circling and approaching and at the same time raises questions about places of longing. This not only characterizes the way the two artists Nina Rieben and Brigham Baker deal with their subjects, but also refers to the current, uncertain situation.
