THE INNER EYE
Born in 1904 (d. 1980), Benode Behari Mukherjee found his own individual path and refrained from painting romantic and sentimental work as was being done by the artists of the Bengal School. He didn’t follow the European academic style or Indian miniatures either. Following the aesthetic ideals of creation he explored different dimensions of wall and ceiling paintings, scrolls and screens. His themes were from everyday life, all that was around him, which included flora, fauna and man. Even arid, flat landscape of Birbhum, the northern most district of Burdwan Division of West Bengal, became immortal on his canvases. Though Mukherjee turned completely blind by the time he turned 50, his creative urge remained undiminished. He began drawing and making small sculptures based upon figural images achieved by folding paper. He also took to serious writing, using it as a tool to express his personal views on art. In 1973, Satyajit Ray made a documentary on his work called The Inner Eye.

🔜 - JÜRG STÄUBLE curated by Sabine Schaschl
0PENING: 31 May, 6 pm👍 😀1 June to 3 September 2017
Museum Haus Konstruktiv will dedicate a comprehensive retrospective solo exhibition to the work of Swiss artist Jürg Stäuble (born in 1948 in Wohlen, lives and works in Basel), which spans approximately 50 years and is situated in the context of minimal art, land art and conceptual art.
Even though his three-dimensional sculptures and installations usually arise from mathematical ideas, construction drawings, and models, Jürg Stäuble is not a constructivist artist in the usual sense. For him, geometry is more a starting point than the goal, even though his works follow precise rules of play. Based on six-sided or circular structures, as well as on systems of order such as sequencing, displacement, layering, and interpenetration, the sculptures question the characteristics of space and its perception. Thus, his artistic interventions in the German-speaking parts of Switzerland often take place in architectural or public settings.
This solo exhibition will be accompanied by a comprehensive publication (in German and English) released at Hatje Cantz. #jürgstäuble#swiss#artist#art#retrospective#exhibition#basel#zurich#minimalart#landart#conceptart#sculpture#installation#drawing#geometry#hatjecantz @hatjecantzverlag #book#publication#hauskonstruktiv @zurichartguide @visitzurich @zuerchermuseen @baselartblog @baselswitzerland @architizer @blouin_artinfo @abstract.mag @culturezurich @cultured_mag @sabineschaschl #contemporaryart#instaart#instaartist @andymeetswarhol @hgk_fhnw @zhdkcampus @artforum @artnet @flashartmagazine @artfollowers @artribune @art.viewer @artnewsmag @artreview_magazine @theartnewspaper.official #swissart#swissartist#artoftheday#landscape#architecture#architect#summer
