Siobhán Hapaska
Feb 8 – Nov 1, 2020
Kunstmuseum St. Gallen
St. Gallen, Switzerland

Kunstmuseum St. Gallen presents Siobhán Hapaska whose sculptures contain political, social, and ideological aspects, but also reflect elements of technology and nature. The works in the current series with titles such as Touch and Love are made of a newly developed material, a concrete fabric that is used for emergency shelters. The artist uses its qualities to create striking sculptures that refer to the human body.

Alienation and loneliness as well as a carefree attitude and humor are recurring feelings in her work; she soberly explores and examines them in sculptural placements. This results in complex material relationships that oscillate between potential power and balanced equilibrium. The sculptures, enigmatic in their composition, allow for several readings: the inherent properties of the materials contrast with symbolic meanings for the environment/ecology, economy, culture, and religion.

A year is also the timeframe of the story chronicled in that project – a love story personal to KHV, which shifts abruptly from its climax to its end when she discovers that X, her lover, is leading a double life – a revelation that prompts the artist to question her certainties.
