SANDRA KNECHT

my land ist your land

© by Sandra Knecht

Sandra Knecht links cooking with art. She uses art and cooking to investigate what constitutes home and identity. Knecht’s practice is a questioning of fleeting, constantly emerging new contexts beyond patterns, norms, specifications. Home does not define a specific place. It can be a temporary feeling of security, a memory or a taste sensation: “My home becomes my home without actually being home.” Identity is iridescent, negotiable, in permanent transformation. The focus of this exhibition is on the artist, art cook Sandra Knecht and the rhizome of history, cooking, art, connections to people, mindsets and actions her identity is based on. How she stands in the world becomes a performance, an image, a sausage. She slips into roles, in costume and mask, she transforms herself in the dark of the night. The goats that can be seen in the picture with her are later in the sausage. Knecht transforms animals, plants, inspirations and relationships into food. Her three dinners within the exhibition are homages to artists who are important to her.

She dedicates one course to each of them.

MARCEL REUSCHMANN

WERKE/WORKS, BAND/VOLUME 4, 2002 - 2018

Als ausgebildeter wissenschaftlicher Zeichner fertigte Marcel Reuschmann (geb. 1941) zahlreiche Aquarelle und Zeichnungen an, die ausdrücklich dem Zweck der Dokumentation dienten und die wichtige Grundlagen für Studien und Forschungen bildeten. Was allerdings kaum jemand weiss, Reuschmann zeichnete auch in seiner Freizeit und er tut es noch. Losgelöst von naturalistischer Sachlichkeit bezeugen seine bisher unveröffentlichten Arbeiten einen künstlerischen Ansatz, der im Mittelpunkt der Betrachtung steht.
