During the “Zurich Art Weekend 2019”, GALERIE PHILIPPZOLLINGER inaugurates its new, main gallery location in Zurich Wiedikon, beginning with a solo exhibition from the American artist, Ethan Cook. Since 2012, Cook’s interest in the manual production of canvas has seen him employing one of the oldest forms of artistic expression: weaving. His canvases are entwined with a reduced visual pattern, thus shifting the focus to the surface of the material and its developmental process. Consequently, Cook imbues the ancient art of weaving with new meaning. Despite incessantly precise and repetitive movements, errors naturally occur, which bestow a human quality within the fabric.
