Kunsthalle Palazzo, Liestal (CH)
Closing on October 31, 2021
Wed - Fri, 14 - 18h
Sat - Sun, 13 -17h
The exhibition "Interior" at Kunsthalle Palazzo will deal with the "interior" in a variety of ways. On the one hand, it will be about the architectural interior and thereby about the specific perception and movement in spaces. This can be done in relation to the architectural, physical specifics of the interior spaces at Kunsthalle Palazzo. On the other hand, mental interiors, i.e. interiors that cannot be physically accessed, will be thematized. Appearing and disappearing again, these invite us to make them visible by means of words and/or images. This parallel world of imagined, inner images, existing next to the tactile environment, has always inspired the creation of art. Individual imaginations, thoughts and dreams are as much a part of this exhibition as walls, windows, curtains, views and insights.
Invited are the four artists Christelle Kahla, Anita Mucolli, Julia Steiner and Nicolas Vionnet. They each have one or two rooms at their disposal. The exhibition is curated by Michael Babics, director Kunsthalle Palazzo.

More than 20 years ago, as the villages of Eschlikon, Wallenwil and Hurnen merged, a border trail was installed in order to raise the spirit of the new community. The trail consists of 12 stations around the new political municipality.
Orbit comprises 13 outdoor art installations along this trail and is welcoming visitors to tour around Eschlikon. The works of selected Swiss artists are for half a year on display offering time to rest, discover, contemplate and enjoy the view.
When Eschlikon was founded in the 13th century, Switzerland at the time was in a phase of upheaval. Conflicts between the Pope and the Emperor facilitated the independency of major towns in Switzerland. Consequently the three forest Communities of Uri, Schwyz and Unterwalden formed an alliance in 1291 and successfully established new partnerships for the Confederation. Thurgau became a member much later. In 1798 Napoleon occupied the old Swiss Confederation and re-organised the country according to French standards. It was during this time when new cantons, such as Thurgau and Aargau, were created.
It’s not only common that communities, towns and states join forces but it also makes sense in order to accomplish set goals easier. In 2009 the Eschlikon Future Conference defined principles and values for the community that should 'shine like fixed stars in the firmament of Eschlikon'.
The 13 art installations are shining around the municipality of Eschlikon just like fixed stars. For Orbit the selected artists have intensively analysed the surroundings and are coming up with: golden play of light, framed landscape images, mirror images, space lines, bricks of clay, gigantic knots, gigantic wasps, mystic beings, wind chimes, white views, fairy braids, good wishes and fortune hazelnuts. And whereas the art stations are orbiting around Eschlikon just like geostationary satellites the visitors may move individually fast from one point to another.
All stations have free access and enable a new, different look at the municipality and the surrounding area: To see the big in the small and the small in the big things, is the guiding principle. The skilfully mastered works of art relate to natural phenomena, well known fairy tales or current events and are comprehensively documented on-site.
Orbit offers a concert by Tobias Preisig, a dance performance by Naomi Schwarz and guided walks with Corinne Schatz, Gabrielle Obrist & Claudia Reeb and Jordanis Theodoridis. Detailed information on the events, guided walks and the positions of the art works is combined on: http://www.0010.ch/exhibitions/aktuell/1188
The Cultural Trail Orbit was jointly developed by the Municipality of Eschlikon and widmertheodoridis gallery.
