Press Release

Albrecht Schnider : Instant Phenomenon
Exhibition: November 11 – 29, 2015 

Opening: Wednesday, November 11, 6 – 9 pm

OFFSITE NYC: 24 Orchard Street, NY, New York 10012

 

Marc Jancou Contemporary OFFSITE NYC is honored to debut a new body of work by Albrecht Schnider. Albrecht Schnider : Instant Phenomenon marks our fifth solo show with the artist and features 20 paintings, drawings, and sculpture pieces.

A limited edition artist notebook accompanies the exhibition, design by Hermann Hülsenberg Studio, Berlin and published by Marc Jancou Contemporary, New York, 2015. Also accompanying the exhibition is a film capturing behind the scenes moments with Schnider at his studio, directed by Rita Ziegler (Film Production: Cineworx; Camera: Isabelle Casez; Editor: Valerie Smith, 2015).
 

Schnider is concerned with the bounds of perception where time, light and space meet to form an instant phenomenon. Created in 2014 and 2015, Schnider’s paintings represent a new direction of abstraction by the artist. Schnider uses a technic of repetitious, mantric movements wherein brush marks are wiped away and a new line set forth on the remnants of its predecessor. Through this exercise, we find formally meticulous lines now lyrical in their fluidity and curvature. While the paintings deliver this vision fully realized, the featured preparatory drawings give evidence of his evolving creative process.
 

Born in Lucerne, Switzerland in 1958, Albrecht Schnider lives and works in Berlin. Recent exhibitions include shows at Helmhaus Zürich as well as shows at Haus am Waldsee, Berlin; and Kunstmuseum Solothurn. His work is included in numerous public collections, including Kunsthaus Zürich; Kunstmuseum Bern; Kunstmuseum Lucerne; and Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts, Lausanne. Publications include Albrecht Schnider: Am Ereignishorizont (Berlin: Haus am Waldsee, 2011); Albrecht Schnider: Die Rückjseite des Spiegels (Nürnberg: Kunstmuseum Solothurn, 2011); and Albrecht Schnider: Das noch Mögliche (Nürnberg: Verlag für moderne Kunst Nürnberg, 2006).

 

Albrecht Schnider: Instant Phenomenon will be on view November 11th through November 29th, 2015. Marc Jancou Contemporary OFFSITE NYC is located at 24 Orchard Street, New York, NY 10012. Gallery hours are Wednesday - Sunday, 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. For more information about the exhibition please contact Christiona Owen at christiona@marcjancou.com.      

________________________________________________________________

 

Nous sommes honorés de présenter un nouveau groupe de travaux d’Albrecht Schnider. Albrecht Schnider : Instant Phenomenon marque notre cinquième solo show avec l'artiste et propose une vingtaine de peintures, dessins et sculptures.

 

Conçu par Hermann Hülsenberg Studio à Berlin et publié par Marc Jancou Contemporary, un livre d’artiste en édition limitée accompagnera l'exposition. Nous aurons également l’occasion de montrer le film de Rita Ziegler, tourné à la façon d’une visite d’atelier, nous permettant de revenir sur le processus de création de Schnider. (Production: Cineworx; Prises de vues: Isabelle Casez; Edition: Valerie Smith, 2015).

 

Schnider est intéressé par les limites de la perception, ce moment où le temps, l'espace et la lumière se rencontrent pour former un phénomène instantané. Créées entre 2014 et 2015, les peintures de Schnider prennent un nouveau tournant dans le domaine de l'abstraction. Schnider utilise une technique matricielle de mouvements répétitifs, dans laquelle certaines marques du pinceau sont effacées et où de nouvelles lignes viennent s’ajouter aux traces qui subsistent. Cet exercice forme des lignes méticuleuses, qui ne perdent rien de leur lyrisme et de leur fluidité. Les dessins préparatoires présentés témoignent d’un processus créatif en constante évolution.

 

Né à Lucerne, en Suisse, en 1958, Albrecht Schnider vit et travaille à Berlin. Le Helmhaus de Zürich lui dédie une grande exposition rétrospective en 2014. Il a été montré au Haus am Waldsee de Berlin et au Kunstmuseum de Soleure en 2013. Son travail est inclus dans de nombreuses collections publiques, telles que celles du Kunsthaus de Zürich, du Kunstmuseum de Berne, du Kunstmuseum de Lucerne, et celle du Musée cantonal des Beaux-Arts de Lausanne. On retrouve son travail dans des publications telles que Albrecht Schnider: Am Ereignishorizont (Berlin : Haus am Waldsee, 2011); Albrecht Schnider : Die Rückjseite des Spiegels (Nürnberg: Kunstmuseum Solothurn, 2011); and Albrecht Schnider: Das noch Mögliche (Nürnberg : Verlag für moderne Kunst Nürnberg, 2006).

 

L’exposition Albrecht Schnider : Instant Phenomenon sera visible du 11 au 29 novembre 2015. OFFSITE NYC se trouve au 24 Orchard Street, NY, New York 10012. L’exposition sera accessible du mercredi au dimanche de 10h à 18h. Pour plus d'informations veuillez contacter Christiona Owen à christiona@marcjancou.com.
