Endless openness produces circles
Kunsthalle Basel, Basel, Switzerland
2 February – 30 March, 2014

The title of the exhibition is a statement Endless openness produces circles sounds like a metaphorical statement that maintain its validity within different contexts of discourse, be it political, social, urban or visual. However, being it the title of Rita Ponce de León’s exhibition at Kunsthalle Basel, it produces an ambiguity that adds to the show a twist of mystery. The drawings of the Peruvian artist’s work as a starting point, flirting with both abstract and figurative forms. But this is basically an exhibition of installations that play with the venue and largely address the viewing experience. The contribution of an architect (the Mexican, Pablo Pérez Palacios) in the production of the exhibition is evident enough. Drawn and sculpted form successfully merge with the institution space in a visual continuum.
