Alice McCabe, Summer-Exhibition
9 August 2012 – 11 August 2012
Moved from London to Zürich in 2010
Performs under the name the â€œThere-There School of English Dada.â€
In her first exhibition the artist displays paintings â€œMade in Switzerlandâ€ alongside a series of 2D works created by squashing and glueing balloons together in baking paper.
With this new technique she records her impressions and response to things she has glimpsed in the city: a tram machine, reaction to being fined, relationship between artist and gallerist and robi dog sack instructions.
Overall she hopes the show is balanced (between balloon works and paintings) through the use of colour and sensitivity to the quality of the materials to leave the spectator feeling invigorated, ready to look at Zürich afresh.
