APATHIA |30 May - 29 Jun 2012
solo exhibition of the Swiss artist who presents fifteen works, including the new series of "Vanishing Woman": 8 faces of women in languorous ecstasy, captured in moments of intimacy, or during sleep or the agony.
A language intimate yet lucidly critical of those who are the "wreckage" of modernism. The images, hovering between reality and vision, so also lose their original meaning and become universal modern votive loads of unique aura.
With the same mechanism of transfiguration decontextualizes Amstutz and deconstructs the original meaning of famous brands of medicines and ironically undermines the value consumer. In Apathia will be exposed one of its Prozac: the famous psychiatric drug is reproduced exactly embroidering all written and graphic elements of the royal box.
The artist implements the strenuous attempt to make one, then a work of art, the image of an industrial product that is normally played in series, thus indefinitely.
