until 29.10. | #3141ARTatBerlin | Galerie Gilla Lörcher presents from 18th September 2021 (Opening 17.09.) the exhibition “Train Station Buffet” by Swiss artist Claudia Zweifel.
Galerie Gilla Loercher is excited to present the recent artworks by Swiss artist Claudia Zweifel (*1981). The love for the train station buffet (train station restaurant) is a love for departure and short stays, for the peace and quiet in transit. To be protected in a vortex of change, people come and go, people waiting, bored, excited. Sometimes dreary and bare walls, sparse tables and chairs, or with chandeliers and white tablecloth or massive paintings. A buffet is also a display, an offer of food and drink, to serve and to cater for oneself, in absorption, in self-determination.
In the exhibition Train Station Buffet, Claudia Zweifel shows, among other things, tableaus in which ceramic reliefs, outlines and stereograms are cast in resin plaster. The assemblages combine motifs such as the spider web, pots, pipes, seated people, bad-tempered people, shamrocks and dreams – a picture by Helene Funke, adapted in ceramics. Maybe they don’t go together or they don’t have to. The need for connections and relationships, the creation of reference systems, and the renunciation of conceptual meaning as a value, accompanies this exhibition and the previous development processes of the works. Nothing can be foreseen; everything is a state and a trance.
