»I am interested in challenging the notion of categorization«.
Sébastien de Ganay

In his second solo show at Häusler Contemporary Zürich, Sébastien de Ganay presents new series of works that explore the border between picture and object, inspiring the public’s imagination. The exhibition once again shows that de Ganay’s optically seductive works are based on observations from daily life, from philosophy, politics and art.

With a brisk appetite for innovation and a consequent attitude, artist Sébastien de Ganay (*1962, lives in Bad Deutsch-Altenburg, AT) aims to overcome the boarder between picture and object, between high and low art. He wants the viewer to participate in the artwork. The three series of wooden chair sculptures which de Gangay recently designed in cooperation with Lawrence Weiner, Rirkrit Tiravanija and John Baldessari are an example for this approach. In «Space on the Move», Häusler Contemporary Zürich now presents new wall pieces and sculptures by de Ganay that challenge the public’s mind. It becomes apparent how the artist incorporates social and philosophical themes into the vivid appearance of his works.
