Auf Augenhöhe is an exhibition project by Richard Nikl and Marta Riniker-Radich specially conceived for Entrance Gallery. The installation created by the two artists is a semantic puzzle which distorts the space and offers multiple outlooks and different readings of the exhibition depending on the spectator’s position. Within this environment, the artists offer a specific point of view on a selection of their works. Auf Augenhöhe, as an expression, hints at the different backgrounds, experiences and knowledge that allow us all to interpret what we see in radically different ways.
Marta Riniker-Radich graduated from the HEAD in Geneva in 2008 and is currently working in Frankfurt am Main and Zürich. Recent solo exhibitions include Swiss Institute, New York (2016), Galerie Francesca Pia, Zürich (2019), Eclair, Berlin (2018) and Kunsthaus Glarus (2018). Marta Riniker-Radich was the recipient of the Manor Prize in 2016, of the Swiss Art Award in 2010 and of various grants and residences, among which at the Swiss Institute in Rome (2016), Landis & Gyr residency in London (2017) and the Canton of Geneva residency in Berlin (2018).
