Beyond Gravity

Jun 25 2022 - Nov 28 2022

A broken planet, within the intensive care unit, gasps for breath. Climate, Covid and Conflicts unhinge gravity, old excuses lead us to the edge of the abyss, where we continue rocking as if there were no tomorrow. Endless we carry on, going round and round in the everlasting circles of our fears, facing nothing else than emptiness. The unknown, the unplannable, the complex are the driving forces of our world. The cuddly attraction of security and certainty implode. Beyond Gravity means lovingly embracing fear and learning to cope with the unknown unknowns. What and who, if not art should or rather must unleash gravity? «The feather learns to fly whilst falling.» Usama Al Shahmani.

We are honored to present for the inaugurational exhibition of «Fondation WhiteSpaceBlackBox» a total artistic immersion, powered by three female artists:
‱ Selina Baumann (Basel/CH)
‱ Sophie Bouvier AuslĂ€nder (Lausanne/CH, London/UK)
‱ Julia Sossinka (Berlin/DE)
Their works and installations will enliven the whole space, new forms of perception will shatter all limits and blast the scars of boundaries.
