Fabian Knecht changes patterns of perception and action, transgresses art concepts and power structures, and questions social relations and norms by countering them with strong and provocative images.

Blaise Drummond

For many years now, Blaise Drummond has been examining the relationship between nature and culture. This manifests itself in his oeuvre, particularly in the way that he juxtaposes architecture and landscape. Drummond has developed a wide-ranging scenario of paintings, colour drawings, collages and objects for the Museum Haus Lange. At the heart of the exhibition is a dead tree, the top of which seems to be growing through the ceiling – reminiscent of Le Corbusier’s programmatic building Pavillon de l´Esprit Nouveau, which featured an indoor tree that grew up into the outside world. At the same time, the work acts as a reference to the dashed hopes of early Modernism. Yet these hopes live on in Drummond´s paintings: those white spaces that open up between the architectural and natural set pieces offer the viewer welcome locations for thinking and dreaming.
