HEIMAT – SELECTED WORKS FROM THE ALEX HANK COLLECTION
HEIMAT – SELECTED WORKS FROM THE ALEX HANK COLLECTION at TARMAK 22, GSTAAD AIRPORT: Jun 6th – Nov 15th, 2019
S+A curated and produced the first public display of a selection of works from the collection of Alex Hank in Gstaad, Switzerland.
Heimat brought together the works of eighteen artists, spanning from 1910 to 2019. The exhibition celebrated the physical tangibility of the sculptures and paintings on display, placing an emphasis on the relationship between object, light and space highlighting the avant-garde, politically charged and forward-looking approach present in all of the works. The title of the exhibition was inspired by the collector’s recent move to Gstaad. Heimat is a German concept that offers a broad perspective on the idea of ‘home’ or ‘homeland’ evidencing the quest for a place of deeper trust and the safety of one’s own experience.
The exhibition included works by Matthew Barney, Marlene Dumas, Dan Flavin, Alberto Giacometti, Jenny Holzer, Anne Imhof, Toba Khedoori, Sol LeWitt, Glenn Ligon, On Kawara, John McCracken, Philippe Parreno, Neo Rauch, Gerhard Richter, Egon Schiele, Richard Serra, DeWain Valentine, Lawrence Weiner, and Lynette Yiadom-Boakye.
