description
With her installation at the Kunstforum Baloise, artist Jenni Tischer creates a scenario for reflecting, materializing, and experiencing the notion „Pattern Recognition. “ Taking the ornament from a relief on the facade of the former Baloise office building – and first modern office building in Basel – (Aeschengraben 25) by brutalist architect Hermann Baur as its starting point, the exhibition offers a multilayered experience of „Pattern Recognition“: On the Mirror Objects lines of thread are woven into small weaving looms. The reflecting parts of the body/face/space appear in ornamental fragments. Referencing “Pattern Recognition“ as used for developing algorithms, the ornament receives a new meaning. Black leather furniture for the employee is placed in the exhibition space at the Kunstforum Baloise, which is also used as a meeting place. Jenni Tischer reproduces these leather benches as displays and arranging an environment for experiencing ornament.
