Cemile Sahin – It Would Have Taught Me WisdomSeptember 17 – October 30, 2021
Esther Schipper is pleased to present It Would Have Taught Me Wisdom, Cemile Sahin’s first presentation with the gallery.
Sahin’s new installation creates an environment in which text and image are entangled: it is composed of colored plexiglass panels with digital prints, which form a sculptural structure, set against a wallpaper representing the signing ceremony of the Sèvres contract. In both the imagery and its underlying narrative, the new work draws on the artist’s research into the treaties of Sèvres (1920) and Lausanne (1923) and their ongoing impact a century later. A major motif is a digitally reconstructed 3D model of a porcelain statue of the goddess Minerva, which was the centerpiece on the table where the Sèvres treaty was signed.

Opening: September 16, 6 – 10 pm with an opening performance at 8 pm
Special opening hours:
September 17 – 19, 2 – 7 pm
Ode to a Tail is a new work by Anri Sala, a performative installation that is an elegy to the extension of perception. Playing around with the notion of absence, of what used to be but ineluctably still exists, a docked dog with an augmented tail immerses itself into a vinyl to become a living chemistry of digital and analog life.

A FIRE IN MY BELLYwith Thomas Demand
Through December 12, 2021
A FIRE IN MY BELLY is a large collection exhibition, featuring over thirty artists from different generations and backgrounds, including Thomas Demand, who in a variety of mediums and contexts examine the ways in which experiences of violence and loss are enacted, witnessed, and transformed. Comprising film, video, photography, painting, sculpture, and poetry, the exhibition explores how artists negotiate and transcend these experiences through personal and political gestures of protest and resistance. The works included in A FIRE IN MY BELLY thus alternate between moments of tension, poetry, and release.

Ways of Seeing Abstraction – Works from the Deutsche Bank Collectionwith Karin Sander
Through February 7, 2022
Aspects of contemporary abstract art, coupled with historical reminiscences, are the focus of the third exhibition showcasing works from the Deutsche Bank Collection at the PalaisPopulaire. The selection includes some 168 works from 1959 to 2021.
Karin Sander's work Wandstück / Wall piece is created by removing an extremely thin layer of paint with all its irregularities, about one-tenth of a millimeter thick, from the wall surface. By sanding the wall down numerous times using increasingly fine sandpaper, the wall beneath, which is covered with emulsion paint, is polished to a high gloss. The picture is created not by applying material but by removing it. The polished surfaces of the wallpieces mirror sections of their surroundings and alter their composition according to the position from which they are contemplated.

Sculpture Parkwith Angela Bulloch
Heavy Metal Stack of Six: Greige is from a series of sculptures—assembled from modular shapes—that combine Angel Bulloch's interest in the logic of geometry and seriality with graphic and sculptural qualities. The surface of the vertically assembled rhomboid shapes, painted in three colors, creates an optical illusion of pushing and pulling planes, giving the work an almost abstract quality, shifting between two and three dimensions.
