Art Basel

June 12, 2012

Art Basel opens this week and – for the first time – Hipkiss is represented there. Visit the Galerie Susanne Zander booth to see four new works – the outsize Birds of Europe and the three-work ‘Sun’ series. They were created this year.

Summary of a conversation we were having today re. the meaning of The Birds of Europe:

It’s a quantum theory puzzle in landscape form. A kitsch (kind of throwaway), personal, ‘family’ landscape to showcase the fundamentals of nature. Daily life (as usual) – the Pyrenees, what cats do, the birds around us, the presidential election, etc. – mixed with thoughts about the laws of physics. Mocking the ‘unmockable’. The birds are like chemical elements…

  1. I am such a fan of the work of Chris Hipkiss! I also am an artist and I am very inspired by his art.
