Silvia Bächli More
Silvia Bächli (*1956 in Baden, lives in Basel and Paris) is considered one of the most important artists in the medium of drawing. Her work was already shown internationally in the 1990s. In the painting gallery of the Museum Langmatt, she is showing a new series of large-format works on paper, presented as a loosely circulating band on the walls. Rhythmised at different intervals, the individual drawings develop an installation-like, expansive energy that enters into an exciting dialogue with the historical exhibition space.
Eric Hattan – Five O’Clock Shadow More
Eric Hattan (*1955 in Wettingen, lives in Basel and Paris, France) is one of the most inventive conceptual artists in Switzerland. His artistic language is chameleon-like in various media and has been attracting international attention for many years. The title of the solo exhibition alludes to British tea culture and thus to the origins of Sidney Brown, who lived in Langmatt with his wife Jenny and his three sons. In the historic rooms of the villa, Eric Hattan surprises with contrasting dialogues between the present and the Belle Époque.
