Booth D16 : The Appropriationnist (from the out-skirts), Félicia Atkinson, Hippolyte Hentgen, Sarah Pickering, Batia Suter
27.01.2015 to 01.02.2015
The display presented at Art Genève (Booth D16) extends and echoes the exhibitions currently on view at the Villa du Parc in Annemasse: they are focused on the notion of “Appropriation”, i.e. the artistic pratices on pictures produced by others.
The fourth artists on view appropriate images, objects, or characters they use in a variety of formal universes. The original material is apprehended through alterations or differenciations. Batia Suter uses the enlargment and the site to give a new life to botanical pictures picked in an old book. Hippolyte Hentgen create collages and small irreverent drawings on reproductions and documents; Sarah Pickering, investigates around a famous British forger and Felicia Atkinson borrows the character of Annie Hall to wander in its own corpus.
