We are excited to announce our relocation to Rämistrasse 5. A full renovation will take place from June to August. Prior to that, we will inaugurate the space in its current, raw state with two solo exhibitions by Elza Sile and Pedro Wirz.
Elza Sile combines mental imagery with analytic divisions and builds up an interwoven vocabulary of psycho-spatial typologies in flux. She was born 1989, in Latvia and lives in Zurich. In 2019, Sile graduated from ZHdK Zurich. Recent solo exhibitions include at KIM? Contemporary Art Center (Riga, 2022); PHILIPPZOLLINGER (Zurich, 2021); unanimous consent (Zurich, 2020) and Kulturfolger Zürich (2020).
