June Fischer

June Fischer was born in Switzerland, graduated from the Zurich University of the Arts, and also works and settles in Zurich. Her artistic practice is multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary, including video, sculpture, installation, and art criticism. When viewing her works, you will find that she is good at breaking the boundaries of vision, so that the viewing objects can find something that is not planned. A new aesthetic while presenting a more sensory visual experience.

In recent years, the artist has developed a keen interest in improving her technique in ceramic craftsmanship, while experimenting with different forms of presentation and the interplay between materials. Fischer’s expressive style is highly reflected in her work, evoking the state of separation.

Arch Gallery is currently showing June Fischer’s first exhibition in China. A total of 46 groups of artistic works including sculptures, installations, and videos are on display, covering two series of creations that the artist has researched in recent years. The exhibition opened on July 22, 2023, and will be on display until October 9.

 

ARTIST EXPOUND

“How can you preserve a video/performance? What forms of presentation are there to show a video? How can you present a video in an unconventional way? How can you integrate a video into a work? Where is the border between sculpture, painting and video art?”these are all questions that I have been asking myself and motivate me to experiment in order transcend such borders.

My artistic practice revolves around themes and questions concerning the absurdity the strange, the humorous, the conscious/ subconscious, nonsense, sensory perception and the everyday.In terms of content and form, my practice seeks the hybrid and is dependent on a constant development and transformation of artistic methods.

An ongoing text titled Stuzzicadenti, which constantly evolves as Ecriture automatique, currently serves as the basis for many of my works. An abstract piece, without a consistency or fixed narrative, which, with its audio-book character; wants to cast a spell of a non-existent story over the viewer. I translate individual words or sentences from the text into a specific medium in order to make it tangible and give it another form of existence. Stuzzicadenti is a cryptic script with a narrative strand that can go in all directions.The result is an examination of different media and their possibilities to visualize a manifold nature of organic bodies.

work can be brought together individually or in combination with other works created from this text. Thus, in each exhibition new and/or old works are reunited and recombined. Each work has a fixed name, but each new combination of works is given a new title.

My work should take the viewer into another world and allows a Lot of room for interpretation. In an exhibition space the sculptures are deliberately placed in rather non-obvious positions and spread across the room. A hidden and playful invitation to embark on a journey full of possible surprises and new perspectives.

June Fischer was born in August 1995 in Zurich, Switzerland. This is also where she currently lives and works as an independent artist.

While in recent years Fischer has developed a strong interest in refining her technical skills in ceramic craftsmanship, her artistic practice is highly multidisciplinary  and encompasses media such as photography, sculpture, installation as well as writing and audiovisual work. As such, she seeks to transcend and challenge the boundaries between fixed categories   whilst experimenting with the interplay between different forms of presentation and materials.Fischer’s versatile approach of expression is highly reflected in her works and evokes the state of dissociation. We all desperately yearn to hold on to something, don’t we? Solid lines between distinct media and context are deliberately blurred by a playful overlay.

ARCH REVIEW | Gaze in the Dim Glow

“The Task of Alchemy”, Pocono Zhao Yu’s solo exhibition at Arch Gallery, presents a subtle sense of time traveling. As the title of the exhibition alludes to, it is as if the smelting and mysterious deeds of some spiritual objects. Within the whisper that fluttering outside of time, this enormous task is under the invisible dome of time.

ARCH INTERVIEW | Guo Yujian

Since then, I have tried to let daydream-like imagination seep into the picture, and those earlier, more symbolic images have also been naturally diluted. Perhaps, it is precisely because of the temperament that seems to be infiltrated by the picture and some image contents that are contrary to reality that cause the association like a dream.

ARCH REVIEW | Making Complicity

When the painting is really close to us, the first thing that appears to our eyes is this Le cimetière marin[1] written by Valéry in 1922. The curators Hu Yihang and Zhang Tingzhi, together with artist Guo Yujian, divided the exhibition “Dangerous Complicity” in the gallery into three chapters with words and symbols: imagination, a plateau, and a theatre.

ARCH 采访 | 薛若哲

“绘画没有办法不诚恳,这是一种无法伪装的媒介。我对绘画的诚恳和机械的、拾得的图像产生的化学反应感兴趣,尤其是当网络图像和铜板线腐蚀这种必须要经过转化才能成型的绘制方式相遇,就形成了有意思的关系。”

ARCH REVIEW | 在倦意来临时服药

恍惚是我们长时间被某种思维或事物压制后常常落入的状态。在这个状态中,时间如流体般被我们任意搬运、搅动,又或是尽兴逐流。而林舒的作品常常通过对空间的加工让我们对影像中的实体逐渐疏远,以至于被送入一个被剥去嘈杂的心理状态,意识取代了被记忆包裹的身体,从而任意涌动。

ARCH 采访 | 郭宇剑

从那时起我尝试让白日梦式的想象力渗到画面中去,那些较早之前象征意味较浓的图示也被自然地冲淡了。或许正是因为这种像是被什么浸润过的画面所流淌出的气质和一些与现实相违和的图像内容才造成了类似梦境似的联想。
