A Tour of Art Basel from A to Z by Kristen Knupp, ArtDecision.eu

Basel is truly a city immersed in art during Art Basel, and it is worth a trip to experience the energy  that this celebration brings to a small city in the middle of Switzerland.  Art Basel attracted 95,000 visitors this year with collectors from over 100 countries.  The first thing I do every year at Art Basel is to head to the Unlimited sector that houses massive sculptures, paintings and installations that are too large for the traditional art show stand format.  Unlimited was curated by New York-based Gianni Jetzer for the sixth year and 76 artists’ work was shown in the warehouse-like space.

One of the first pieces I saw was Jenny Holzer’s Statement – redacted, 2015, from Spruth Magers gallery.  It is a hanging slim LED sign with four sides that glows and flashes bits of sentences that quickly explode into smithereens.  Randomly moving around the space; sometimes stopping, and then moving quickly towards viewers, it is both threatening and unpredictable.  The piece features text from pages of declassified US government documents about military operations.  Holzer has worked with text and light installations since the 1970’s and has recently included text from declassified documents in her work.  Although difficult to read as the words flash by at speed, words like “hope”, “documents”, and “evidence” come through in lurid pink and orange, and then disintegrate before a solid understanding of the words is possible.

The next piece that caught my eye was Subodh Gupta’s Cooking the World, 2017 from Galleria Continua in Italy.  This installation is made of well-used silvery pots and pans of all sizes and shapes, suspended from the ceiling in a precise and delicate arrangement hung by transparent fishing lines.  The result is a temporary shelter, inside of which the artist cooks Indian meals for observers creating a temporary community among the fair-goers.  The feeling created inside the shelter was surprisingly cosy and light shone in from around the edges of the pots in pleasingly random patches.  The concept of the piece is that sharing a meal creates inclusion and acceptance across social and cultural boundaries.  It brought to mind Alison Knowles performance piece “Making a Salad”, originally from 1962, in which a salad is made and shared with the audience.  This was performed last year at Art Basel, so perhaps this is a trend we will see again next year.
