Curated by Clare Goodwin and Sandi Paucic, StudioK3 Project Space

StudioK3 Project Space curates an immersive installation with works by 13 artists for the Kunstraum ECK in Aarau A cursory glance through the large vitrine window of the ECK or the first impression upon entering the space may make visitors think of a private interior or a ‘homely’ display, such as one you might see in an interior design shop. A closer look reveals a network of artistic affinities between the different art works. The installation creates a charged dialog within a staged domestic environment, lying somewhere between still life and object landscape.

Stillscape is the second installation of its kind developed by the curators of Studiok3. Not really inhabited but enlivened by the art objects themselves, the installation creates a tension between the notion of the domestic and the sculptural quality and curatorial possibilities of art objects once collaged together, inviting us to immerse ourselves in an environment that is somewhat familiar yet foreign.
