The Lemoyne is a nonprofit art space that is exhibiting artists from Switzerland and abroad. In their «Room1» series Lemoyne focuses on showing edition works like prints, photographs, films, performances or artist books for a short time period that can last from one evening to a weekend. The space was founded by art historian and writer Kristin Brüggemann and cultural sociologist David Khalat in the end of 2018. In 2020 the team was completed by Samuel Seemann who is well known for his digital art channel Artscene.

Emotions are material and algorithmic constructions. In a final screening and finissage, four films develop how the mind and body relate to chemical matter of our environment and how AI advancement and media create mass consensus. In a toxic landscape of hybridity, bodies’ porous input is minerals and earth. Eva Papamargariti becomes a frog with absorbent skin that absorbs toxic nanoparticles and emits fractured monologues. Alejandra Prieto scans Bolivian Lithium mines where the compound is extracted and sold. The chemical is used widely in hand-held devices such as mobile phones but is also ingested as a tablet to stabilise bipolar disorder. The chemical makeup of our devices and minds are connected. Paulo Arraiano’s Sensorial Divinities relates tentacular beings that will withstand future climates with AI and the spiritual dimension of the hyperobject. Thomas Yeomans plays with emotions, soundscapes, and societal tension in a roller-coaster display of abstract and appropriated characters. The earth’s chemical, biological, and emotional states testify to the interconnectedness of things.

橫掃 Sweep of the horizon

Lemoyne is happy to announce Rebekka Steiger's solo show "橫掃 Sweep of the horizon" with new monotypes by the artist.
橫掃 (Wangsou) literally means something similar to "horizontal sweeping" in Cantonese, whereby "wang" as a noun can also describe a horizontal line in calligraphy. The term additionally denotes a typhoons’ sweeping across the country. Loosely translated into English, the term provides with yet another meaning, as in this expression "sweep", read as a noun, refers to the width of the horizon. With the new exhibition Rebekka Steiger presents distant landscapes of dimly visible flora and fauna. The painterly medium of the monotype allows her to play with overlaps and transparencies. Steiger recourses to specific motifs and formal structures exploring the pictorial space in its two-dimensionality. The artist introduces the horizontal rather as a graphic element in contrast to its classical use for the depth effect.
Accordingly, Steiger’s new works oscillate between planar constructivism and Chinese landscape painting. The varying colorfulness and new compositional structures within this series of work synthesize different artistic cultures showing a global outlook towards contemporary painterly aesthetics.

Double or Nothing Exhibition

Lemoyne and Wagner&Friends are happy to announce Frédéric Gabioud’s first solo show in Zurich with new works by the artist.
Gabioud’s paintings develop a clear, fresh and acidic monochrome pictorial vocabulary. Revisiting the heritage of major Swiss and American movements, Gabioud reveals clear affinities with Minimalism and geometrical abstraction.
The different interventions on the stretcher, which are subject to a strict chro- matic unity, determine the variation of the colours, according to the inclinations of the canvas and the light sources. In a tug-of-war with the surface, the artist thus takes the canvases out of their flatness, through evolutions of depth that ensure the work an absolute interaction with its environment.
Gabioud’s works can only be seen in their materiality – sufficiently elaborated to produce these effects in reality. From an obscurantism that is still often provocative, the question of the monochrome is then reformulated in a version that invites a more technical and visual experience, less romanticized, but also more critical: that of a monochromy that contradicts itself.

Dolls Exhibition

Between 2011–2018, Amélie Korzil photographed a total of 1142 mannequins in 641 analogue photographs all over the world. These have become the basis of “dolls”, an archive that the concept artist has since dealt with. Subjective questions on the representation of gender, race and taste are at the focus of her multimedia practice. Korzil finally exposes her “dolls” as representatives of social norms that are actually obsolete for consumer choice. Lemoyne is pleased to present for the first time the entire archive and all related works.

May Day Exhibition

A slow drip of a viscous material congeals into a solid mass. Wax is made by bees, specifically worker bees, whose hexagonal designs are arranged by the hive-mind. From the day of birth, these labourers are assigned with a societal order – a responsibility to their queen.

May Day is labour’s festivity, a celebration of production by the erasure of work. Abolishing work could be possible with automation, but today it seems more likely to experience the end of the world than the end of work. Never before have we toiled more hours under 0-hour-contracts and countless methods of social self-surveillance. Algorithms outpace our thinking, collecting online “cookies” and replacing domestic labour. The female voices of our first mass-servants Alexa and Siri strive to seduce and to please.

Our unconscious desires surround us through targeted ads. Prediction itself has always been a business that homogenises the population. Fortune cookies were first served in San Francisco where today’s tech companies crowd the Bay Area. Like palmistry, or tarot, it is based on systemic methods of applying data and generalised formula – and yet what would happen if we knew the future? The scientific projections of environmental cataclysm strike no emotion. 2 degrees Celsius. When it slowly melts, changes its outlines and transforms its shape as it approaches the water, does it remain the same as before? AI and jellyfish will survive in the future landscape – bees and humans will find a different fate.

Sea-snail shapes adapt to the inside of our waxy inner ear. A mechanical humdrum, Balenciagasponsored- apocalypse-shelters, larval bodies occupying hexagonal frames. Another May Day passes on our warming planet. The wax gets softer.

Words Exhibition

Lemoyne zeigt die Ausstellung «Words» mit Arbeiten von Carl Andre, Beni Bischof, Henri Chopin, Sylvie Fleury, den Guerrilla Girls, Sarina Scheidegger und Ariane Koch, Alina Kopytsa, Barbara Kruger, Richard Long, Cy Twombly, Jenny Holzer und Virgil Abloh.

Sind Wörter in Zeiten von Social Media und Motivationssprüchen zum reinen Kitsch verkommen? Sind sie im als «postfaktisch» bezeichneten Zeitalter bedeutungslos und leer geworden? Was passiert, wenn man sie ausspricht, sie hört, in Dialog mit ihnen tritt?

Wörter spielten in der visuellen Kunst jeher eine prominente Rolle: Vom Surrealismus, Dadaismus über die Konzeptkunst, die Visuelle Poesie bis hin zu politischen bzw. aktivistischen Kunst des Feminismus und Konsumkritik wurden Wörter von Künstler_innen immer wieder als visuelles Mittel eingesetzt. Sie sind dabei je nach Kontext und Form politisch, ironisch, poetisch, typografisch, abstrakt aber auch konzeptuell oder dokumentarisch.

Gedruckt, gezeichnet, gemalt, getippt, gesprochen – oder sogar gestickt finden sie ihren Platz in Büchern, Filmen, im Internet, auf Postkarten, T-Shirts oder Postern. Wörter können platt wirken, aber auch als Zeichen unendlich viel beinhalten, vermitteln und kommunizieren, Begehren erwecken, eine ganze Welt hinter dem Wort freigeben. In Sätzen miteinander verbunden können sie Sinn vermitteln, oder Unsinn. Sie können hinterfragen, auf etwas verweisen, als Text etwas erzählen oder aber auch zum reinen grafischen Zeichen werden. Je nachdem an wen sich die Wörter richten sollen, setzen Künstler_innen unterschiedliche Sprachen ein: In den meisten Fällen Englisch, jedoch auch Spanisch, Portugiesisch oder Arabisch.

«Words» soll die Auseinandersetzung über die Bedeutung von Wörtern in der Kunst anregen und die grosse Variation im Umgang mit Sprache und Text innerhalb der Kunst aufzeigen. Dafür setzt «Words» unterschiedliche künstlerische Positionen aus verschiedenen Zeiten miteinander in Bezug.

S.M.S. Exhibition

The Lemoyne presents Shit Must Stop in its entirety for its inaugural exhibition in Zurich. Reconnecting with the artistic ideas of S.M.S. in 1968, the Lemoyne will highlight the timelessness of their conceptual and democratic approach to art.

About S.M.S.

About S.M.S.

Shit Must Stop (S.M.S.) was founded in 1968 by William Copley and Dmitri Petrov in a loft on the Upper West Side in New York, which became the production site of the artist magazine during its short-lived production time between February and December 1968. It was published non-commercially every two months with each of the six editions having a circulation of 2000.
Copley invited leading but also lesser known members of the Fluxus, Concept, and Pop Art movements as well as surrealists and dada artists such as Christo, Marcel Duchamp, Richard Hamilton, On Kawara, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Meret Oppenheim, Man Ray and Dieter Roth to produce small-format editions. Each artist was paid $100 for their contribution no matter what their status. Copley’s Letter Edged in Black Press loft became an important hangout for many New York artists and participants of S.M.S.
For each issue, the different contributions were packed in a folder designed by one artist and mailed to the subscribers. Inspired by the media-hybrid character of the Fluxus movement and the avant-garde’s claim to unite art and life, the artists multiplied the individually-designed works as original luxurious reproductions with the intention of making artistic content and ideas accessible to a wider audience. The large edition size and the relatively low price of $125 per subscription enabled a wide audience to collect many of the already internationally recognized artists.
The periodical has a wide range of different media and techniques that have been assigned equivalent status. It contains contributions such as drawings, prints, photographs, tapes, letters, postcards, poems or objects that often have an experimental character. All artworks are contained in the six mailing folders and can be unpacked and activated as artworks. The approach to create an art collection in a box was inspired by Marcel Duchamp’s Boîte-en-valise, which was created as a portable museum during uncertain times in which many artists were constantly travelling.
