HELMRINDERKNECHT contemporary design gallery, recently moved from Berlin to Zurich, has transformed a vacant villa in the neighbourhood of Zurich Oerlikon into a temporary home for contemporary design and art for ‘This Is The House That Jack Built’, a new exhibition project.
“As the british nursery rhyme and exhibition title ‘This Is The House That Jack Built’ narrates, the exhibition can be seen as an accumulated story of complicated relative sentences.” says HELMRINDERKNECHT. “Starting with an old villa, the show stretches over three floors, through a vast number of rooms, from the basement with its hidden bar up to the attic with its wonderful gabled structure.”
“The participating galleries present artists from their programme in conjunction with the other guest projects. As in the nursery rhyme, the story of the building becomes also the subject of the exhibition. It is the direct and indirect link to the work of art. ‘The House that Jack built…’, this house; it is not only a house containing exhibited objects, but perfectly illustrates the symbiotic relationship that all houses have with the objects they contain and the lives lived within its walls.”
HELMRINDERKNECHT contemporary design gallery is presenting objects from it’s gallery programme and a new edition of mobiles. “This new collection dissects, examines and explores the idea of the mobile as a design or perhaps, an art object.”
This Is The House That Jack Built is on now until November 3, 2013.
