Three exhibitions will open at SALTS in Birsfelden, opening June 16 and running to August 28.
The first space, organised by SALTS curators Samuel Leuenberger and Elise Lammer will see a duo exhibition by Owen Piper and Lili Reynaud-Dewar called on how to talk dirty and influence people. It promises the offer of a rich show, glittered in the biographical, and hinting at a retrospective conversation between the two artists, who have known each other for decades.
The second, My History of Flows, is by Lena Henke who will use water to change the interior and exterior architecture of the exhibition space. The third, curated by New York-based artist and poet Harry Burke will feature the work of Penny Goring, Lorraine O’Grady, Lady Pink, Arleen Schloss and Martine Syms and is titled Works Off Paper.
The artists, whose work will be installed in SALTS’ ‘Printed Room’, have practices that span what the short text describes as ‘multimodality’ in relation to the word: Fragments of text exist as images in circulation as much as they exist as conjunctions of syntax, metre, person.
