Beat Zoderer
FOLD & DIP AND OTHER INCIDENTS

27.11.-28.02.2015

Bartha Contemporary is delighted to announce the third solo exhibition of Swiss artist, Beat Zoderer (b.1955). Entitled “Fold & Dip and Other Incidents”, the exhibition will showcase an overview of recent works including a new series of works on paper, which inspired the title of the show. Please join us for the private view on Thursday 27th November from 6:30 to 8:30 pm. This exhibition coincides with the presentation of a site- specific installation at the Sleeper art space in Edinburgh, entitled “A Crumpled Sheet’, which will open to the public on Friday, 28th November from 5:00 to 7:00 pm.

Materiality has always been at the heart of Zoderer’s concerns; he works with a broad spectrum of materials, including everyday objects ranging from wool and thread, to photo-paper, tin and PVC. Zoderer’s process takes him from one media to another, whether its drawing, sculpture, or installation. Through his diverse practice and spontaneous way of working, Zoderer continues to question the aesthetic parameters of art, assesses its validity and pursues a continuous balance between art, reflection and reality.

The artists’ works have been described as “correct errors”, while maintaining our attention each piece evolves as the viewer moves around a work. First seeming systematic and precise, the pieces reveal a multitude of hidden and unexpected qualities upon closer inspection.

Zoderer’s new series takes shape through his ‘fold and dip’ technique; along the folded lines of tracing paper, Zoderer dips sections of the folds into paint, accentuating the lines he originally created. This process produces energetic paper based works, highlighting the materiality of the paper and igniting Zoderer’s love for sporadic paradigms as well as his joyful use of a wide colour palate.

Other works in the exhibition include a recent bronze sculpture, which together with the new works on paper will be shown alongside carefully selected works from a number of different series’ of works, made since his mid-career retrospective at the Haus Konstruktiv, in Zürich.

For further information please do not hesitate to contact the gallery.
