At second glance
Do they go together? An exhibition with paintings by Verena Renggli and objects by André Schuler? She, Verena Renggli, stands for mood and atmosphere. Her gaze superficially rests on a forest floor, a tree or a landscape, but actually it’s always directed inwards. He, André Schuler, is concerned with facts and ideas. The objectively observed and generally understandable is reduced to its core, disfigured to a certain extent to make it recognisable; so Silicon Valley is turned into a silicone relief. So do they go together? Renggli’s silent tempera and oil paintings on the walls, Schuler’s reduced sculptures in the space? At first glance, maybe not. But anyone who takes a closer look, will see that the contrast creates a whole. When looked at as a whole, each individual work tells of how differently we humans perceive our environment.
