In order to be reborn, we must die to ourselves and the world. Away from solution - focused therapies, and how - to spiritualities. The path to rebirth is through letting go of old urges, released from old needs.
Now from a maiden, you became a mother, birthing the new to come. A never - ending state of becoming, in an ecosystem of others. The cycle is continuous. Don’t forget the gift of darkness, it will show you the way back, when you’ve once again lost the path.
Agnieszka Kuntzmann (born 1986) is a Swiss based artist of Polish origins. Her work is characterized by an interest in perception of consciousness, concept of circulation and embodiment. She sees every Self as a vehicle to another form. Metamorphosis as an autonomous and absolute act of infinite movement. She searches for this metamorphosis and often experiments with materials that are the subject of natural phenomena of transmutation, like water, salt, minerals, ashes. Her abstract and semi figurative paintings, inspired by the practice of self-awareness and connecting with nature, evoke archetypes that are buried deep in the collective subconscious.
THE POWER OF TOUCH
Who wants to live, laugh, or cry alone
Have we lost the touch that means so much
Touch me now and let me know
Human touch is a critical element in shaping social relationships, emotional well-being, and physiological health. Its loss or deprivation can have profound negative effects on individuals and society. Early brain development is particularly impacted by touch, with emotional bonds between infants and caregivers being formed through touch.
The "Power of Touch" exhibition invites you to explore the impact of human touch in society. Viewers and participants will reflect on their experiences and feelings, gaining new insights and perspectives.
Aleksandra's pop-up art style delves into the intricacies of human touch on multiple levels, exploring the profound impact that it has on our lives. Her focus ranges from the significance of first and last touches to the nuances of romantic connections.
Kaja's experience takes one through the story of touch. It is an interactive sculpture, working in synergy with people discovering the theme of conscious touch step by step. It reacts to our presence and feeling of nearness.
Their art provokes a thoughtful reflection on the intricate web of emotions that touch can evoke.
It inspires a deeper appreciation for the power of physical interaction and its impact on our lives.
Eleven Ten Studio is an artist - run gallery, exhibition and event space located in the heart of Klein Basel, Switzerland.
"Art is not to be feared" through this unconventional approach we want to shorten the distance between an artist and the collector.
We want to build strong connections with people and maintain a sense of honesty and integrity.
Our goal is as simple as this: create art and make a living out of it. Nothing more, but also nothing less.
