Ellen de Bruijne PROJECTS is pleased to participate in June Art Fair in Basel with work by Pauline Boudry & Renate Lorenz and Tyna Adebowale.
June 13 to 19, Riehenstrasse 90B, Basel, Switzerland.
Pauline Boudry & Renate Lorenz's work - primarly installations, films, and video - focuses on revisiting practices that reference forgotten moments of queer resignification in history thorugh photography, film, or dance. The artist duo represented Switzerland at the 58th Venice Biennale in 2019, and their oeuvre is part of the most prestigious museum collections, most recently Tate Modern, who recently acquired their work Salomania (2009).
Their work is currently on view in the solo exhibition Portrait of a Movement at Centro de Arte dos de Mayo (CA2M), Madrid, curated by Övül Durmuşoğlu.
Tyna Adebowale's multidisciplinary artistic practice has a strong focus on societal processes and constructions regarding gender, queerness, ostracism, community, and identity politics. With an interest in the gender fluidity in the African cultural and spiritual histories prior to colonisation, the artist reflects on contemporary Nigerian society and its diaspora, as well as its echoes in other cultures.
She is currently part of the 14th Dakar Biennale, Senegal, where she was recently part of the artist in residence program Black Rock Senegal, founded by artist Kehinde Wiley in 2019.
