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 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 | Guo Yujian :Dangerous Complicitiy

When looking at Guo Yujian’s works, what have been depicted is always in a state of flow, and the secret words that are related to each other become images that avoid us and approach us. The work that takes shape on the canvas in our sight is yet to come, in transition, about to embrace change, and it will not push us away until the feeling is fulfil.

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 REVIEW | 制造共犯

当画作真切地逼近我们双眼,首先出现的是这首瓦雷里1922年所写的《海滨墓园》。机构策展人胡奕航、张汀芷与艺术家郭宇剑一起,将这次拱形画廊名为《危险同谋》的展览,用文字或符号分成了几大篇章:臆想、一座高原、剧场。许是有意为之,又或是无心之举,开篇选取的这段文字,饱含着诗人瓦雷里对家乡赛特港的深沉眷念。

ARCH REVIEW | 郭宇剑:危险同谋

在看向郭宇剑的作品时,被描绘的总是在流动的状态中,相互间有着联系的密语成为图像回避我们、又逼近我们扑面而来。我们视线内成形在画布上的作品是尚未到来、在过渡中、即将迎接变化,直到感受盈满,它才会把我们推远。

ARCH 采访 | 谢燚

他的作品长期以来从“劳动”这个常用的词汇出发,不断向现实世界里以“语言”为基础的权利追问。“我只希望我认为重要的东西能被大家知道,那就是”具体的劳动“在现实世界中是如何”做功“的。”
